In this feel good holiday read, Roberts returns appropriately to Icicle Falls, Washington, in what is a perfect time to visit. The Lodge is run by widow Olivia Wallace and her son Eric. Various guests arrive, trying to create Christmas memories that will replace the ones that live in their homes. There's a Santa, James Claussen and his two children, a single mom with two kids, a man hoping to marry...even with so many inhabitants, Roberts does a superb job of separating yet combining their stories into a very satisfying conclusion. I enjoy re-visiting Icicle Falls and the peeks we get into the lives of characters who are secondary to this story help keep that community feel alive. ( )

How Santa Gets His Christmas Spirit Back… 

James Claussen has played Santa for years, but now that he's a widower, he's lost interest—in everything. So his daughter, Brooke, kidnaps him from the mall (in his Santa suit!) and takes him to Icicle Falls. She's arranged a special Christmas at the lodge owned by long-widowed Olivia Wallace and her son, Eric. And yet…Brooke wants Dad to be happy, but she's not ready to see someone else's mommy kissing Santa Claus. 

Single mom Missy Monroe brings her kids to the lodge, too. Lalla wants a grandma for Christmas, and her brother, Carlos, wants a dog. Missy can't provide either one. What she'd like is an attractive, dependable man. A man like John Truman… But John's girlfriend will be joining him in Icicle Falls, and he's going to propose. 

Of course not everything goes as planned. But sometimes the best gifts are the ones you don't expect!
