Secret Santa (A Christmas Magic Novella) by Lichelle Slater {Review}

Secret Santa (A Christmas Magic Novella) by Lichelle Slater
Kindle Edition, 85 pages
Published November 30th 2016


Bell Kringle is a Secret Santa—one of Santa’s elves in charge of bringing the spirit of Christmas back into the lives of those most in need. For three years, one name has popped up on her list: Drake Pine.

Drake has been her toughest assignment. And this year, Bell is determined to get his name out of the book once and for all. She hopes a Christmas romance will bring Drake around, but while playing matchmaker, Bell realizes she’s fallen for him.

What’s an elf to do?

Can Bell help everyone feel the Christmas spirit before her own disappears, along with her heart?


My Review: 4 Stars

This is such a darling and fun Christmas story that will really put a reader in a holiday mood. Bell is a secret elf, one that brings the Christmas spirit to those on her list. Drake is a tough one to crack, as he shows up year after year on the list.

Bell is the sweetest person ever. She is so selfless and cheerful. I don't know how she is able to put her disappointments and fears aside so easily, so that she may lift the burden of others, but she does, time and time again. I love the friendship she shares with Jamie and enjoyed the way they would help each other. Drake is a little rough around the edges, with his heartaches of the past, but he's a marshmallow on the inside. I loved getting to know him better through Jamie's eyes and seeing him melt a little.

I love a novella that can progress through critical elements in a book, while feeling complete when it's finished and this one delivers. It would make a darling movie! There are moments of conflict, emotion, despair, hope, joy, laughter, and fun. I'm hoping there's more to unwrap in this Christmas Magic series.
