Sasha Hansley hates Christmas. As a child, it was her favourite time of year, but ever since the tragic death of her mother, it has completely lost its magic.
But when she gets an unexpected phone call from her eccentric estranged father, she’s forced to dust off her snow boots.
He has been running a Lapland style Christmas village in Norway and after suffering a heart attack, he is on strict doctor’s orders to slow down. Eager to reconnect with her dad, Sasha books the next flight out there. Only she has never actually been on a plane before, let alone to the Arctic Circle.
Met at the runway by drop-dead-gorgeous Taavi Salvesen, they sleigh ride through the snow with the Northern Lights guiding their way.
When Sasha uncovers sacks of unopened Santa mail – letters that children and adults from all over the world write to Santa every year – she realises that she can send a little bit of magic out into the world by replying to some of them.
With Taavi on hand to help, will Sasha rediscover her own excitement for Christmas and find love among the letters?
Oh, Holy Night WHAT A BOOK! This is the first book I have read by Jaime but it most definitely will not be the last!
Sasha has had some real rough Christmas’ since her mum passed and for her, it’s lost its magic. Sasha doesn’t feel like she is a priority to anyone. From the moment we met Sasha I wanted her to feel special. It’s clear underneath that she is someone so unique but life has gotten in the way.
Taavi is something quite different. He is a real hunk of a man. At 6ft 8 with a wall of solid muscle he quickly swept Sasha off her feet. Taavi has been really hurt in the past. Not just physically but also mentally. He’s given up on good people and just expects everyone will let him down. This is so sad and I was very happy to see him bring down his walls as the story progressed.
I almost forgot to add I LOVED the way each chapter began with a letter from a child! It was very interesting to see what they asked.
This book has everything you need for a Christmas romance but it is so much more than that. This book is what Christmas is all about. It will make you believe in the magic of Christmas and leave you feeling all the emotions. If you read one Christmas book this year make it this one!
