Angela Carson wants nothing more than to be the third-generation to run her family’s holiday store, Heart of Christmas, successfully. They’ve weathered over sixty tourist seasons, major hurricanes, and urban sprawl, in their old decommissioned lighthouse. But the national chain that set up shop in their small North Carolina town of Pleasant Sands may be more than Heart of Christmas can survive.
Encouraged by her niece to ask Santa for help through the Dear Santa app, Angela gives in and lets the words fly in a way that, if Santa were real, would no doubt land her on the naughty list. What’s the harm when it’s just a computer-generated response?
Geoff Paisley has been at his mother’s side running the mega-chain Christmas Galore for the last ten years. When his mother falls ill, Geoff promises to answer the Dear Santa letters in her stead. Soon he realizes the woman he’s been corresponding with on Dear Santa is Angela. How could the woman that grates his every last nerve in person have intrigued him so deeply through those letters?
When Geoff reveals that he’s her Dear Santa, will Angela be able to set aside their very public feud to embrace the magic of the holiday and possibly find true love?
USA Today bestselling author NANCY NAIGLE whips up small-town love stories with a dash of suspense and a whole lot of heart. Now happily retired, she devotes her time to writing, antiquing, and the occasional spa day with friends. Her books include Christmas Joy, Dear Santa, and Hope at Christmas.

When a national chain starts building a shop right across the street, small business owner Angela Carson knows she is in trouble, for the last few years her family business has been struggling to stay afloat, and this might just be the one thing to finally take them down. Heart of Christmas has been her families livelihood for over sixty years, and it's finally been passed down to her hands, and now it's all going to come to an end, before she really gets a chance to really put her own touch on it... that is unless she can work a Christmas miracle or two!
Geoff Paisley has been helping his mother run her national chain of Christmas Galore stores for the last ten years, and hopes that someday he will take over when she is ready for a quieter life. But that day is about to come a little sooner than he anticipated, his mother has fallen ill, and that means there are Dear Santa letters to be answered, and businesses to run. Little does he know those letters are about to bring him a little Christmas miracle of sorts too... but first he must work himself into her good graces!
Dear Santa is a heartwarming tale that is sure to bring you joy, inspire some Christmas spirit, and leave your heart overflowing! This was a fun one to devour, the light-hearted story line and charming characters pulled me in from the first page, and took me on quite the enjoyable literary journey filled with many moments that had me smiling! Highly recommend!
