Publisher's Summary

From Mary Kay Andrews, the New York Times best-selling author of Hello, Summer, comes a novella celebrating the magic of Christmas and second chances in The Santa Suit.

When newly divorced Ivy Perkins buys an old farmhouse sight unseen, she is definitely looking for a change in her life. The Four Roses, as the farmhouse is called, is a labor of love - but Ivy didn't bargain on just how much labor. The previous family left so much furniture and so much junk that it's a full-time job sorting through all of it. 

At the top of a closet, Ivy finds an old Santa suit - beautifully made and decades old. In the pocket of a suit she finds a note written in a childish hand: It's from a little girl who has one Christmas wish, and that is for her father to return home from the war. This discovery sets Ivy off on a mission. Who wrote the note? Did the man ever come home? What mysteries did the Rose family hold? 

Ivy's quest brings her into the community, at a time when all she wanted to do was be left alone and nurse her wounds. But the magic of Christmas makes miracles happen, and Ivy just might find more than she ever thought possible: a welcoming town, a family reunited, a mystery solved, and a second chance at love.

Wasn’t bad, nor was it awesome. It simply was!

I can’t say I disliked, but I also cannot say it was freaking awesome story. The narrator was good. The story was happy, yet predictable and really could’ve been more. Just kinda ended. Like that’s all, bye. Very weird. All in all it’s an okay Christmas story. Won’t disappoint, but won’t make you think I can listen to this again.

The perfect Christmassy romance

I loved this book. Very Christmassy, very romantic, not too man-centered and extremely heartwarming. This book makes you feel cozy and hopeful and ready to take on any challenges with the help of your friends.

Perfect story of hope and new beginnings.

This story is something many people would consider cheesy. But I found it to be a simple story about several good people looking and hoping for new beginnings after experiences of heartbreak. It brought me lots of smiles and a few tears.

The narration was well done and believable; and the story made me feel good. Even though the setting is during Christmas time, it can be enjoyed at any time.

So for a feel good, cheesy story try The Santa Suit.

Great story...technical issues with the book

I love this story. Very uplifting and engaging. unfortunately whenever my phone would go to sleep, the narration would stop. this is nit the case with any other audible book o have, so I feel it must be in the coding for this book somewhere. I was quite irritating as that meant I had to make sure my opine wouldn't sleep and I couldn't do other things as I listened to the book - kinda the point of an audio book. but otherwise, very happy with the book and story itself.

But come to think of it, I don't think there's been a MKA book that I haven't loved. But this is a HUGE LOVE!!

Narration was wonderful!
The whole thing was wonderful!
Listen to it! It doesn't have to be Christmas; you will still enjoy it!!

A lovely seasonal story

Kathleen McInerney is one of my favourite narrators so I was excited to see she was narrating this. The only thing I would improve would be to make the book longer!
