Dear Santa by Debbie Macomber

Hardback, 272 pages

Romantic fiction


 This one was short, but that fit me well. It was an easy and fast read, and perfect for the season.

Lindy got dumped by her BF and her BFF. Her job is demanding, but she comes home for the holidays. She wants something real, and her mother gives her her old santa letters. How strange that all those wishes came true. Maybe they can do so again?

Her old home town is suddenly very inviting. Old friends, new friends and a sweet man that might just be the thing.

There is a tiny bit of drama since she does live elsewhere and her big break is coming up. But it all wraps together in a nice bow.

Lindy Carmichael isn't feeling particularly joyful when she returns home to Wenatchee, Washington, for Christmas. The man she thought was "the one" has cheated on her with her best friend, and she feels completely devoid of creativity in her graphic-design job. Not even carolers or Christmas cookies can cheer her up--but Lindy's mother, Ellen, remembers an old tradition that might lift her daughter's spirits.

Reading through a box of childhood letters to Santa and reminiscing about what she'd wished for as a young girl may be just the inspiration Lindy needs. With Ellen's encouragement, she decides to write a new letter to Santa, one that will encourage her to have faith and believe just as she'd done all those years ago. Little does Lindy know that this exercise in gratitude will cause her wishes to unfold before her in miraculous ways. And, thanks to some fateful twists of Christmas magic--especially an unexpected connection with a handsome former classmate--Lindy ultimately realizes that there is truly no place like home for the holidays.


  1. Perfect sweet Christmas story. We all need it!

  3. Hello,
    I like Debbie Macomber's books but i didn't read this one yet. Thanks for your review. :)
    I'm writing about books too. If you want too, we follow each other. :)

    Here my blog;

    1. It was perhaps my first one...not sure, but might be my second or third too

  4. I haven't read this one but it does sound good.

  5. My mom loves her books. I have liked some and others not so much. This one sounds like it would be worth a read.

    1. I saw the xmas title and just borrowed it :)

  6. It's okay that it's short if it hits the spot :)

  7. I like the sound of this one. There's something about a girl being betrayed by her BF and her BFF as it happened to me. I like that it's short too. I'll try and track down the audio.

  8. Christmas stories! I haven't read any this year. (or ANY books this month lol)
