DEAR SANTA by Nancy Naigle & Giveaway

dear santa

We’re heading to Pleasant Sands, North Carolina in Nancy Naigle’s holiday novel, DEAR SANTA (St.Martin’sPress). That’s where Angela Carson wants nothing more than to have a “Merry Christmas” and for her shop, Heart of Christmas to stay open past the Holidays. But it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen.

Her third-generation family has run the shop for over sixty tourist seasons, weathered major hurricanes, and urban sprawl, in their old decommissioned lighthouse. But a national chain store moves into town with more Holiday products at cheaper prices. Can Heart of Christmas survive?

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 store’s Dear Santa letters for her. 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?

Eventually Angela finds out Geoff is “Dear Santa.” Will she be able to find true love with her “mortal enemy?”

DEAR SANTA reminds me a lot of the film, “You’ve Got Mail.” Angela is Meg Ryan’s “shop girl” and Tom Hanks’ is the big, bad “Fox Books” in the film. Each chapter begins with a “Dear Santa” letter and Nancy captures the voice of young children who believe in the big guy in the red and white suit. DEAR SANTA gives the reader, or at least it gave this reader, a big warm fuzzy. It puts you in the Christmas spirit and you really want Angela and Geoff to end up together … even though they’re both thick-heads.

  1. As many, I wish pain and hate would turn into peace and love. But I also wish I could spend more Christmas with my family back in my hometown.

  2. I’m looking forward to spending time with my Son & his family & extended family. This is also the second Christmas without my husband who passed away 2 years ago from Stage 4 Kidney Cancer, so it is sad that he is not with us anymore & it also makes me think of all the good times we have had in past Christmas’s. Thanks for your generosity.

    1. Hugs, Linda. I lost my husband to cancer 5 years ago. The second year was the hardest. My heart goes out to you. Cling to the good times. They still make me misty, but they don’t hurt so bad now. Embrace every moment and build new traditions that make the old ones still shine. ❤

  3. My wishes are to be happy for the holidays. Circumstances have changed for me and my kids and we are just trying to get by. I just want happiness not presents or money.

  4. I lost both parents last May and October (in their 90s, 71 years together). I wasn’t able to go to be their house to be with my daughter last Christmas because I was getting ready for back surgery. My partner and I have been trying to clean out their house. That’s been hard. But we will be their for Christmas. I pray for peace and better health.

  6. I wish that this Christmas is filled with much happiness and great memories for my family. I am battling cancer so every holiday is precious now.


  7. My ultimate wish would be for a cure for diabetes. Since that’s not likely to happen in a few short weeks, my next wish is just to spend time together with my family.


  8. My wish is that each and every service member overseas knows how truly grateful we are for the freedom they are fighting for!


  9. My wish is for no shootings or anything tragic to happen over the holidays. I would love to wish that for all time. Thank you for the chance,
