“Santa’s Gift will not only restore your faith in Christmas but in the magic of the season and true love. Carolyn Ridder Aspenson has done it again!”Lynn Shaw, Two Girls & A Book

Cumming, Georgia journalist Jessica Holland isn’t feeling the joy of the holiday. Recently dumped by someone she didn’t even love, she’s more fa la la la blah than fa la la la la. So when her best friend Ashley forces her to sit on Santa’s lap at the local mall, the Scrooge in her comes out.

Jessica doesn’t believe in Santa – that silly myth is only for children. Or is he?

When Santa tells Jessica he’ll give her whatever she wants for Christmas and that she’ll finally believe in his magic, she asks for the one thing she knows he can’t give. She asks for true love.

But can Santa make that happen?
