Do you love Christmas and happily ever after? Do you enjoy romances that focus on the emotional relationship rather than the physical relationship? Do you like to read a book that just makes you feel good? If so, Santa’s Angels (Avalon Romance) is for you.

Only the store owner, Uncle Fil, knows that the man playing Santa in Filmore’s in downtown Dallas is none other than the notorious Nick Klaus. Certainly Janie Langston, the “elf” who takes pictures of the kids who visit Santa, would not feel the attraction she does to the mystery Santa if she knew who was hidden behind the red suit and fake beard. But Christmas magic is in the air, and it touches more than Janie’s four-year-old daughter Carrie.

Santa’s Angels is a delightful, light-hearted,  feel-good romance. The story is well-written and well-edited, and the characters are believable and likable. My favorite is the precious toddler, Carrie. The only thing that pulled me out of the story was wondering how Nick got his Santa suit back into the store after wearing it home one night. The subject was never mentioned again, and I kept looking for an explanation that never appeared. But that was a minor distraction in an otherwise engrossing read.

Santa’s Angels would be an excellent Christmas gift for someone who enjoys sweet romances or a relaxing diversion for anyone caught up in a hectic Christmas rush.

Be sure to stop by on Friday for my interview with Janet. She’ll also be around during the day to answer your questions.
