Ad exec Krista Martin, while feeling more Grinch than elf, still jumps at the chance to co-chair Marietta’s Secret Santa Society. Why not? Especially since brilliant, attractive, and innovative tech wunderkind Jonah Andrews has agreed to help. He’s well connected and Krista’s hoping for some advice on rebooting her career.
Jonah knows Krista has a not-so-hidden agenda, but sparring with her over cocoa at their Secret Santa meetings is the most fun he’s had since returning to his old hometown. Krista may come across as all business, but Jonah’s positive he’s glimpsed a little girl inside her who wants to believe in Santa… and in love.
A sweet heart-felt story with a great message.
Krista Martin is forced into helping Marietta’s Secret Santa Society when her business partner ends up pregnant and is told by her doctor that she needs more rest. Krista wasn’t in the Christmas spirit this year but when she found out Jonah Andrews, Marietta’s own tech genius turned millionaire, was going to be co-chairing with her, she figured she might be able to get a little free business advice from him.
Jonah didn’t have volunteering in his plans when he returned to Marietta, he thought he was just going to house sit and take care of his parents dogs while they were away in Florida. But when he finds out the Secret Santa Society needs his help and fresh ideas, he decides why not. It is for a good cause after all.
Together Krista and Jonah come up with plans to help families in need and bring them some happiness during Christmas. They also find themselves falling in love even though they both know the holiday season is not a good time to begin a relationship.
The detailed writing about the main characters as well as catching up with characters from previous books, makes this book one not to be missed. Everything is written out so well, you can picture being there, sipping hot cocoa and reminiscing with old (and new) friends. The mischievous dogs were a fun addition to the story too.
