When she discovers that her greatest enemy—Geoff Paisley—is her Dear Santa, with whom she has been corresponding with for weeks, holiday store owner Angela Carson must decide if she can set aside their very public feud to embrace the possibility of true love.
Finding your passion for life and love is the greatest gift of all. . .
Angela Carson wants nothing more than to be the third generation to run her family’s North Carolina holiday store, Heart of Christmas. 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 town may be more than the Carsons’ business can survive. Maybe, as her young niece suggests, Angela should just ask St. Nick for help via the Dear Santa app? No harm in a little wishful thinking this season, right?
Geoff Paisley has been at his mother’s side running the megachain Christmas Galore for the last ten years. When Mrs. Paisley falls ill, Geoff promises to answer the town’s Dear Santa letters in her stead. Soon he realizes the one he’s been corresponding with on Dear Santa is Angela. How could the woman who grates his every last nerve in person have intrigued him so deeply through those letters? And if Geoff reveals that he’s her Dear Santa, will Angela be able to set aside their very public feud to embrace the joy and magic of true and everlasting love?
