Return to Evergreen, the town where Christmas wishes come true… But only if you know what your heart really wants.
When Lisa takes a last-minute Christmas trip to her hometown of Evergreen, she finds that the historic general store has closed. The place was a beloved local tradition, and she decides to use her skills as a professional retail designer to bring it back to its former glory. She charms a local contractor, Kevin, into working with her, and the pair find themselves facing one surprise after another.
One of the biggest surprises of all is finding the mysterious 25-year-old letter to Santa that never made it to the North Pole. Who really wrote it, and will its request come true at last? And will Lisa and Kevin figure out what they’re truly wishing for?
🎄❄📚My thoughts on the novel🎄❄📚
If you enjoyed the first installment Christmas in Evergreen, you will most certainly fall under the spell of the sequel Letters to Santa. Lisa, a former Evergreen local, returns to her hometown for a holiday that might turn into something much bigger for her. She embarks on a fixer-upper project of an old shop held dear by the whole community. In the process, she finds a new sense of community life and even a budding romance with contractor Kevin. It is your typical small-town festive read with a touching, feel-good love story.
Based on the Hallmark movie, it is pretty faithful to the film, except for the epilogue where the author took some liberty and added an extra twist. Personally, I felt it was a bit unnecessary as it kind of dragged on for a bit too long, introducing new characters and at the very end, it is not ideal.
Anyway, if you want to enjoy a slow-paced romantic story with some lovely Christmas tunes in the background, Christmas in Evergreen Letters to Santa is your go-to book companion.
