Someone has noticed me. A secret admirer? A man with a good heart, who sees how much I actually need help, even though I never admit it? Maybe this is the beginning of a beautiful story—a romance full of hope and second chances and love. 


A secret Santa gift left on Kale Brennan’s front porch opens up a fresh view of her ordinary life, and perhaps of God. Maybe she does matter. Maybe God sees her—as does a new-to-town music teacher who has her seven-year-old daughter gushing and her own knees ​buckling with his killer smile. But as Kale embraces new possibilities, a staple in her life—a man who is kind and steady, not to mention necessary for her injured daughter’s recovery—also snatches her attention in an unexpected way. Will the one pursuing her with his secret gift and kind gestures be the one her heart longs for in the end?

Jennifer Rodewald is passionate about the Word of God and the powerful vehicle of story. The draw to fiction has tugged hard on her heart since childhood, and when she began pursuing writing she set on stories that reveal the grace of God.
Jen lives and writes in a lovely speck of a town where she watches with amazement while her children grow up way too fast, gardens, and marvels at God’s mighty hand in everyday life. Four kids and her own personal superman make her home in southwestern Nebraska delightfully chaotic.
She would love to hear from you! Please visit her at or on Facebook at or email her at


4 Stars

Christmas stories are often so heartwarming and uplifting and this one fits the mold. Single mom, Kale, and her precocious daughter, Sydney, have a pretty good life, but it's not easy. A secret Santa tries to ease that burden for them. Sometimes it's nice to wish for a better life, but sometimes it's best to be content with what you have and that's a great lesson that Kale learns through the process of the story.

Great friends and new friends always keep things interesting and there's almost a love triangle of sorts. I love the gentle flow of the plot, the entertaining situations (especially those involving Sydney), and the peaceful comfort that the religious thread brings. This is a story that can be read in one sitting and really brings a Christmas spirit to your soul.

Content: mild romance; moderate religious themes.
