Like any married couple, Allie and Tony have had their fair share of heartache. But when Tony's actions force Allie and her young sons out of their home, things take a turn for the worse. Without her husband around, Allie must cope with two inquisitive children - as well as the reappearance of her estranged father. So when her eldest Mark befriends next-door neighbour Jeremy, Allie's glad he's found a distraction. The trouble is that Mark believes Jeremy is Santa Claus and that he can put the family back together.
While Jeremy is increasingly mortified at the mix-up, a little magic never did anyone any harm - did it?

Warm, gorgeous book!
It was beautifully written, with rich, very likeable characters. Each one drawn so it felt like I really knew them, their strengths and their frailties. The story has sadness, human struggles, warmth and humour. All dealt with intelligently and with a light touch.
I loved it all.
Yes, but it was too long for that.
This is the second book I have listened to by this author. Both equally fabulous. I think she rates as the Irish Jojo Moyes, being just as good and showing the same ability to write stories with all of the complexities of human life, dark and light, without straying into cliche. Caroline Lennon was the perfect narrator for them and was wonderful as always.
