In this Christmas novel from Thomas Kinkade and Katherine Spencer, the residents of Cape Light learn that sometimes the best gifts are those that were once lost—and rediscovered…
With the new found confidence that comes with her nursing career, Lucy realizes she doesn’t need to put up with Charlie’s nonsense anymore. But just as she’s about to call it quits, a lost looking teenager crosses her path. Seeing that the girl is sick and alone, Lucy takes her in despite Charlie’s protests.  This can be the thing that makes or breaks their frayed relationship, but right now, Lucy’s main concern is getting the girl’s real story and helping her—if she’ll let Lucy in...
With a grown son embarking on his own life, and an ex-husband starting a new family, Betty realizes she’s been too busy to find her own life partner. That is until Santa bears an unexpected gift at the Rotary Club’s Christmas party—himself. Has the holiday cheer gone to her head, or is she really attracted to a struggling magazine writer who plays dress-up? Betty can tug all she wants on Santa’s beard, but unless she believes that goodness comes in different packages, she risks Santa passing her over this Christmas.

I love all the Kindade Christmas books. This one centers on finding love in unexpected places and the rewards of helping those in need even when the recipient is not always grateful.

I enjoyed this book. Very fast read, 2 story lines, Lucy & Charlie taking in Zoey. She is a run-away foster child and she shows up in the diner, no money and about to run out on her bill. She is sick & Lucy, being the kind-hearted person, takes Zoey in. Charlie in the end comes around to them fostering Zoey! Then Betty is working Molly in the catering business, falls in love with Santa, Nathan, he brightens her life as well as she does his. Betty and her son Brian finally get a chance to talk over their past life with the divorce. Everything comes together in the end. Small town fun!

This was another wonderfully magical addition to the Cape Light series. I enjoyed seeing some old characters back and meeting new ones. As well as getting in depth them. We meet Nathan, the seemingly humorous and mysterious man riding to the rescue for Betty, yet he's got something more going on underneath. A sadness. Meanwhile Betty is working through her own issues as she tries to get back into the dating world, make a connection with her son and be happier. They open new worlds to each other and it's a very interesting and moving journey to follow. Another journey and a rocky one awaits Lucy, Charlie and their family as they meet the haunted Zoey. A teen who's lead a hard life and suffered much, she puts on a front that they're going to have a hard time getting past. Will it be worth it? Will she even let them in? Can they make this troubled girl so in need of help and love a part of their family forever? Love, family, friends, drama, faith, tears and laughter, this was a wonderful mix of everything we've come to expect from the series. But it also stands up as a wonderful stand alone. If you're a fan or just thinking of starting out, you can't go wrong with this one.

I love Thomas Kinkiade's style of writing. His books teach lessons in Christian values and are interesting and heart warming. I have all of his books in the Cape Light Series and have enjoyed each and every one.
