Miracles don’t just happen on 34th Street. They can happen right in your living room—if you’re willing to believe…

What grown woman claims to have seen Santa Claus? Mandy Reese, for one—on a very special Christmas Eve when she was eight years old. These days, Mandy works at a year-round Christmas store in Tall Pine, California, where customers love to hear about her childhood encounter with Saint Nick. But when Jake Wyndham arrives in town—charming, gorgeous, extremely practical—Mandy faces a dilemma. Deny what she saw, or let Jake think she’s sugarplum crazy?

Jake scouts hotel locations all over the country, but he’s never met anyone quite like Mandy before. Her warmth and sparkle are irresistible, but…meeting Santa? Really? Jake’s no Scrooge but he’s definitely skeptical. Then again, there are all kinds of things Jake never experienced until he came to Tall Pine. Like autumn snow. Mind blowing kisses. And the magic of falling head-over-heels, madly in love…

Review (5 Stars):  Do You Believe in Santa is a delightful, light-hearted romance that is absolutely perfect for this holiday season.  Mandy had a chance encounter with St. Nick one Christmas when she was a child and everyone in the town seems to think that Mandy is a little on the crazy side.  When Jake comes into her life and finds her absolutely irresistible, Mandy is afraid that her childhood secret will come back to haunt her and send away the one person who can change her future.


Mandy was such a fabulous character and I loved how she tried to stay positive in every aspect of her life.  Meeting Jake was a wonderful thing because he was interested in her as a person and didn’t have any preconceived notions about her based on her past.  I know that Mandy’s story was difficult to accept since we are taught that Santa doesn’t exist from a very young age.  I loved her spirit though and her belief in the joy of Christmas and I’m glad that Jake finally did too.


This is the first book in the Evergreen Lane series and I’m already hooked.  I love these characters, the town and I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book.  Such a great romance!
