Francie was born in a stable. Really. Granted, it was the deluxe model with the light-up star on the roof, one of the many Christmas items for sale at her family’s Hollydale Holiday Shop. Their holiday gift empire also includes the Santa School, which was founded by Francie’s beloved grandpa, who recently passed away.

Francie’s always loved working in the shop, but lately Aunt Carole has been changing everything with her ideas for too-slick, Hollywood-inspired Santas and horrible holiday-themed employee uniforms. Aunt Carole’s vision will ruin all the charm and nostalgia Francie loves about her family’s business…unless she does something about it.

But this winter is about more than preserving the magic of Christmas. Francie is saving up for a car and angling to kiss the cute boy who works at the tree lot next door—hopefully it will be good enough to wipe her fiasco of a first kiss from her memory.

As the weather outside gets more and more frightful, can Francie pull off the holiday of her dreams?

Frankincense 'Frankie' works at her family's holiday store. Her family also has a Santa farm where people come from all over to learn how to be a good Santa and even Ms. Santa. Readers see how much this family LOVES Christmas from the decorations to even the little fact that Frankie literally was born in a stable. Add to this though is how Frankie's first kiss wasn't all that and how now she feels she needs to redeem herself. Then there's the cute guy Hector Ramirez who works in his family's tree business across the way. Frankie hopes' he can help her recover from that worse kiss ever. First, she has to survive her Aunt Carole's scheme from ruining this Christmas with her endless requests that include ungodly uniforms only she has to wear to assigning her the unrealistic tasks of replying to letters to Santa. Can Frankie save the day and still keep the Christmas spirit?

What worked: Cute, fun Hallmark Christmas-worthy story. There's a lot to love about this Christmasy YA. Frankie is adorable with all her descriptions of the family Santa School to what is involved in the family's Holiday Shop. Some of the outfits she has to wear at the shop per Aunt Carole's orders are hilarious. More so are the comments on the uniform evaluations that go so far as having customers comment in order to get discounts.

Entertaining with punchy, hilarious at times dialogue. Loved Frankie's interactions with her bestie Alice who helps her brainstorm ways to recover from that terrible first kiss.

I totally could see this as a YA rom-com set during the holidays! Aunt Carole's quest to better the family business using Frankie as Santa's intern has hilarious results. But there are also issues of dealing with the loss of a beloved grandparent and how to help those less fortunate during the Christmas season.

Frankie's relationship with Hector Ramirez is one that readers are sure to relate to. Should she or shouldn't she see if Hector will break her terrible first kiss? And rating the next more worthy kiss? Very fun!

Fans of Hallmark Christmas romances are sure to love this engaging romp in a family holiday store. Filled with endearing characters that are sure to bring a smile to your face.
Good Points
1. Fun, entertaining Christmas rom-com
2. First kiss!
3. Santa's intern set in a Hallmark Christmas romance-worthy story

My name is Ashley Vivian, Am here to share a testimony on how Dr Raypower helped me. After a 1/5 year relationship with my boyfriend, he changed suddenly and stopped contacting me regularly, he would come up with excuses of not seeing me all the time. He stopped answering my calls and my sms and he stopped seeing me regularly. I then started catching him with different girls several times but every time he would say that he loved me and that he needed some time to think about our relationship. But I couldn't stop thinking about him so I decided to go online and I saw so many good talks about this spell caster called Dr Raypower and I contacted him and explained my problems to him. He cast a love spell for me which I use and after 24 hours,my boyfriend came back to me and started contacting me regularly and we moved in together after a few months and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than his friends. We eventually got married and we have been married happily for 3 years with a son. Ever since Dr Raypower helped me, my partner is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before.
