Publisher's Summary

A special holiday wish list brings about hope, love, and second chances in this nostalgic novel from the queen of Christmas stories, number-one New York Times best-selling author Debbie Macomber.

Lindy Carmichael isn’t feeling particularly joyful when she returns home to Wenatchee, Washington, for Christmas. The man she thought was “the one” has cheated on her with her best friend, and she feels completely devoid of creativity in her graphic design job. Not even carolers or Christmas cookies can cheer her up - but Lindy’s mother, Ellen, remembers an old tradition that might lift her daughter's spirits.

Reading through a box of childhood letters to Santa and reminiscing about what she'd wished for as a young girl may be just the inspiration Lindy needs. With Ellen's encouragement, she decides to write a new letter to Santa, one that will encourage her to have faith and believe just as she’d done all those years ago. Little does Lindy know that this exercise in gratitude will cause her wishes to unfold before her in miraculous ways. And, thanks to some fateful twists of Christmas magic - especially an unexpected connection with a handsome former classmate - Lindy ultimately realizes that there is truly no place like home for the holidays.

In Dear Santa, Debbie Macomber celebrates the joys of Christmas blessings, old and new.

One of my favorites

Debbie Macomber never fails to draw me in to her stories and this one is no different! Thank you for reminding me of the innocence of believing in Santa and how much more magic that adds to the season. Another part of Debbie's stories is she often writes about somewhere in Washington state. I enjoy either learning more about the area I live in or picturing the story where I have been. Very relatable. Happy Holidays, may the Magic of Santa still fill you with anticipation and joy!!

Great Read

Dear Santa was a great read by Debbie Macomber. Lindy Carmichael returns home to Wenatchee, Washington and isn't feeing very joyful. The man she was with, cheated on her with her best friend. She reads through a box of childhood letters to Santa and finds herself reminiscing about what she's wished for as a young girl. She decides to write a new letter to Santa with encouragement from her mom. She never expected to see her wishes unfold before her eyes. She also makes a connection with a handsome former classmate. I enjoyed reading this book and can't wait to read more by the author.

Skips several words

I love all of her books but I’ve noticed that the last 3 jumps/skips in the middle of sentences. So that’s a bit frustrating but still overall a good book.

Pretty good

The story, ‘Dear Santa’ was pretty good. I enjoyed it more than last year’s Christmas story from Debbie Macomber, but I do like the angel books and the Mrs. Miracle books more.

Fun

Heartwarming, fun, feel-good Christmas story. The author could probably do without throwing in multiple deadbeat characters into the storyline (of non-significance), but nonetheless, a good, fuzzy, quick story.

A Sweet Christmas Story

Dear Santa was a lovely Christmas story. It was a simple read, and as always, the imagery of Washington State in the winter is beautiful.

I listened on Audible and found that I was not as impressed with the narrative this time as I have been with other books by this author. There was not much change of voice between characters.
