Secret Santa by Kathleen Brooks.....a review

On the twelfth day of Christmas, this review is brought to you......


It wouldn't be Christmas in Keeneston without a party! Everyone's invited, even Santa…
Kenna's court docket is full, Dani's hiding from her in-laws, Paige and Annie are about to burst from pregnancy, and Marshall is breaking up fights at the PTA Christmas Concert. The sweet potato casserole is made, the ham and biscuits are on the table, and men are losing their shirts - and not because of bets placed with the Rose Sisters! All the while, the entire town is wondering one thing: who is the Secret Santa that showed up with special gifts for everyone?

From My Perspective:

Ho! Ho! Ho!   The entire town of Keeneston, Kentucky is ready for THE annual Christmas Party; this year to be held at Southern Charms.   This is a short Christmas Novella, full of fun and quirky people who populate a small town.   Everyone knows everyone and everyone knows everything about you.   And everyone cares about their neighbors in this town.    This is a town where life happens!

The rose sisters are in charge of planning the annual party where everyone has been invited, except for the Santa who shows up in full Santa garb.    He may be familiar, but the Rose sisters don't know who he is, but it's clear he is prepared with a bagful of Christmas gifts!   And he is seemingly able to provide the kind of gifts that people dare to ask for at the last minute.    Me thinks there may be some magic in the air!

It's fast paced, you meet a lot of town characters, and somehow you feel charmed by them all...especially the Secret Santa!    A charming Christmas tale which encouraged me to look into the author's other writings in her Bluegrass  Series.     I rated this fun and charming read as 4 winks!
