It was time for Hailey Rhodes to admit the truth: things were not going well. 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?
My Review of Secret Santa:
Amanda Tru is one of my newly-discovered favorite Christian authors. Her other books were all suspenses and this one is full of suspense and surprise from the very beginning as well. Hailey is stuck wearing bells and a cute little elf outfit when she loses her teaching position in economic cuts, and when she begins to be pursued by the resident Santa, she does even know his name or true identity. This is a true heart-warming story for the holidays or any old time. I will not spoil the book for potential readers by revealing too much, but I had a terrific time figuring out who the real Santa was--(I was right, by the way!). "Santa" reminds Hailey often that God does have a plan and a purpose for her life, and I enjoyed seeing that plan and purpose unfold among the pages of Secret Santa.
About the Author:
Amanda Tru is a busy young mother of three active boys and a former school teacher herself. She blogs about her crafts, activities, and adventures with her children and family as well as writing delightful Christian novels for her eager readers.
I received a copy of this book from the author in preparation for a book chat in an online group.
