After losing her job as a teacher, she finds herself broke, unemployed, and tricked into accepting a date from a department store Santa Claus. When new opportunities and new love interests present themselves, will Hailey choose a career and a man she's always admired, or will she wait for the identity of her Secret Santa to be revealed?

This was a fun Christmas novella.  I enjoyed the secret identity aspect of the story, and the fact that Hailey didn’t have a clue who “Santa” was.

It was really fun to try to picture Santa and two of his reindeer rappelling down the side of the building.  Amanda Tru has a great way of making her stories combine humor and serious aspects such as trusting God when things are tough.

I did just read the book through a second time (the first time was 3 years ago), and I’m not sure if I wasn’t surprised about the identity of Santa because I actually remembered what happened from before, or if it was because of the clues in the story.
