Description: What if Santa Claus isn’t one man? What if he is a secret organization? 
Jeremy Ogden has 25 days to accomplish his mission. Just like every man in his family, he has a list of people whose lives can be changed forever if he makes it to them in time. But he has one big problem…And her name is Virginia. 
Virginia Kipyard is the last girl in the world Jeremy wants to hold his family’s ancient secret, until it becomes apparent that she might be the key to handling the hardest assignment he has ever faced. He just has to keep her out of trouble in the meantime. But that is easier said than done, even for a Father Christmas.

I have wanted to read this book since the first time I came across it. The plot sounded so fun and I bought a copy, put it on my Kindle and waited for the Christmas season. This particular Christmas season, this book was one of only a couple new Christmas stories that I tried and liked.

This book felt like a fun Hallmark Christmas movie, in that it was light-hearted, not meant to be taken seriously, and was clean. However, I loved the message and the faith that was injected into the story effortlessly that added a nice dimension to the story.

Virginia was a great character. She had just the right mix of skepticism and trust. Even though this wasn’t a very long story, the author was able to really get me into the way Virginia thought and felt. Jeremy was also a really fun character and a good match for Virginia.

The plot to this story isn’t realistic, but it is fun. The faith element and the weaving together of the history and myth of Santa Clause made it a fun holiday read. The talent of the author helped to make the story keep from being too cheesy.

I recommend this for those who enjoy light-hearted stories, Hallmark-feeling tales, and are looking for a good dose of Christmas fun.
