Such a cute follow up story to Christmas in Evergreen. I have not seen the movie, I am hoping it plays this Christmas so I can see it come to life!

Thank you NetGalley for this ARC.

Christmas in Evergreen is a fabulous read! I intended to read only one chapter just before bed and wound up staying up late to read the whole book. I thought it was great! I would love to read more by Nancy Naigle in the future. 
Five stars.

Just who was the author of this letter to Santa?
"Christmas in Evergreen: Letters to Santa. Based on the Hallmark Channel Original Movie" by USA Today best-selling author Nancy Naigle was published by Hallmark Publishing. In this Christmas romance novel Lisa Palmer and Oliver, her business partner, work together in Burlington to prepare the Spruce Collectibles store for its annual Christmas sale. Both of them travel all over and have little time for family. After the job is done Lisa is heading to her hometown Evergreen in Vermont which she has not visited since she was a child because she hated to leave there when her parents were moving, once again, whereas Oliver plans to head back to Boston.
Lisa is met with the shocking reality that one of her fond childhood memories, Daisy's Country Store is closed because Daisy passed away the previous year and nobody bought the store. She meets Kevin who challenges hear to do give the store a face-lift in order that it can be sold. Lisa plans to stage a Christmas gift shop and during the preparations they discover an undelivered letter to Santa. Who is the author of the letter? What will happen to Lisa and to Oliver when things work out differently as planned?
This is the second book by Nancy Naigle which I read and I can highly recommend it. It is easy to read and has believable and wholesome characters. Furthermore, as do the Hallmark books, it contains the recipe for apple dumplings.
The complimentary copy of this book was provided by the publisher through NetGalley free of charge. I was under no obligation to offer a positive review. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

Thank you to Netgalley, the publisher and the author for the opportunity to read this book in return for review based upon my honest opinion. 

 What can I say about the town of Evergreen that you don’t already know.? It’s the best place on earth to be at Christmas time, As good as the movies are, as a book, it is even better.  I really enjoyed the story, it left me with a warm fuzzy feeling where I just want it to be drinking hot cocoa by the fire and watching the snow fall lightly outside my window. Such an enjoyable book and I was left with such a good feeling.

I love Hallmark’s Christmas in July movie celebration and I think Christmas In Evergreen: Letters to Santa in novel form is the perfect way to keep the celebration going into late summer. Christmas in Evergreen: Letters to Santa was one of my favorite holiday films from the 2018 collection and I’m beyond glad to see it’s been turned into a novel by the talented Nancy Naigle. 

Lisa returns to her hometown for the Christmas season and gets the unique opportunity to bring a childhood staple back to life. Along the way, she meets a charming contractor (Kevin) who helps make her dream a reality. Along the way, they stumble on a letter to Santa that’s a quarter-of-a-century old. Lisa and Kevin pair up to give Evergreen a Christmas it won’t soon forget.

Such a sweet book, with a cute romance at the center. Great characters and although the plot is a bit predictable, it’s a heartwarming story. Perfect any time of the year, but I can’t recommend Christmas In Evergreen: Letters to Santa (or the original Christmas in Evergreen) enough as a way to kick-off the holiday season this fall.

Oh my goodness! 

There’s nothing I love more than winter time with hallmark channel movies playing while enjoying a nice warm cup of hot chocolate, so to be able to read this book in August and get a glimpse of what my winters going to look like was incredible. As per the movies this book was a little predictable but that’s what makes them great! 

It was an incredibly well written novel and the recipe in the back was the perfect addition.

Christmas in Evergreen: Letters to Santa is based on Hallmark movie and is a sweet, clean romance that I enjoyed. 
 
Lisa Palmer and Kevin Miller both have wonderful memories of Evergreen, Vermont, a "real life Santa village".  Those memories bring them both back to town and fate brings them together to resurrect Daisy's Country store, the site of many of their favorite memories.

Working together and with other residents, they help Evergreen celebrate Christmas like they used to and help everyone remember that "keeping family and friends close is the greatest Evergreen tradition of them all."

Nancy Naigle's descriptive prose paints a vivid picture of the town, all the Christmas finery, and the magic of the holiday - the lights, trees, Christmas bells and a white-bearded resident with a twinkle in his eye named.....Nick.

I received a copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

A Good heartwarming story!  While visiting her home town Lisa decides to help restore the old store so someone might buy it and re open. while doing so she finds an old letter addressed to Santa. 
The romance between he rand Kevin, gradually starts and the mystery throughout of who worte the letter and trying to make the wish come true goes throughout the story. Very well written reminds me of the old fashion christmases. made you want to keep reading!  well done.

If you enjoyed the first installment Christmas in Evergreen, you will most certainly fall under the spell of the sequel Letters to Santa. Lisa, a former Evergreen local, returns to her hometown for a holiday that might turn into something much bigger for her. She embarks on a fixer-upper project of an old shop held dear by the whole community. In the process, she finds a new sense of community life and even a budding romance with contractor Kevin. It is your typical small-town festive read with a touching, feel-good love story.

Based on the Hallmark movie, it is pretty faithful to the film, except for the epilogue where the author took some liberty and added an extra twist. Personally, I felt it was a bit unnecessary as it kind of dragged on for a bit too long, introducing new characters and at the very end, it is not ideal.

Anyway, if you want to enjoy a slow-paced romantic story with some lovely Christmas tunes in the background, Christmas in Evergreen Letters to Santa is your go-to book companion.
