When Macy Wilcox agrees to play Mrs. Claus this holiday season, she has a firm idea of what her Mr. Claus should be like: ambitious (how could he not be with a whole world to cover in one night?), logistically-minded, and organized. But when Cal Bradley shows up as Santa, he’s the opposite of what she expects.
First, he’s late. Second, he comes from straight off the mountain so his fake beard looks windswept and he’s wearing ski boots instead of polished black boots. And third, Santa is not supposed to have abs like that.
There’s trouble from the start as realistic, business owner Macy, and optimistic, fun-loving kids’ ski instructor Cal, disagree on everything from the Naughty and Nice List to the ingredients for sugar cookies.
Every time Cal agrees to deliver an extravagant gift to a child, Macy tries to pull him down to earth. Macy believes Cal can’t follow through on his word, but the more he spreads his holiday cheer, the more she wants to believe in him. With a little Christmas magic, maybe Cal can teach Macy the best gift of all is love.
Good Holiday Read
Mr. and Mrs. Claus are such a cute couple! I loved how they both took the roles last minute and allowed for multiple engagements throughout the season for this book to weave through. Macy and Cal bring a different view of dating and how trust can be a hard thing to develop (especially once someone has been burned). This charming book will put you in the holiday mood for more than just cookies!
I received a free ARC of this book and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.
