is always the worst time to get your feelings hurt. Tessa
decides to spend the evening making Christmas cookies and
drinking margaritas as the quickest remedy. The cookies
might not have turned out well but the evening is salvaged
when Santa drops by to console Tessa and offer some friendly
advice. Tessa dozes off in a drunken slump sure that sheís
imagined the entire episode. When she finally wakes up,
itís next dazzling hunk, Jedrick.
to believe that Jedrickís an elf (heís well over six feet
tall) and harder to swallow the fact that sheís at the North
Pole. A visit to Santaís workshop, sleigh rides, and
blazing nights beneath the covers with Jedrick all convince
her that this is not a dream. Tessa is forced to make a
choice about her future with Jedrick. Elves mate for
life. It wonít be easy leaving behind her past life and
dearest friend to start a new one so far away.
View from Santaís Sleigh is a sexy, magical holiday
fantasy thatís sweet without the irritating stickiness.
Thereís humor and an overall easy-going vibration. Tessa
and Jedrick instantly connect with loving sincerity that
made me smile. Santa and The Mrs., Jedrickís family and
elven colleagues add to all the fun and warm fuzzy
feelings. I got swept into the plot and the activities
until it made me feel as if I was there. The creative elven
rituals and facts add polish and originality to the plot.
It seems I canít seem get enough of holiday stories filled
with elves and magic. Tales like The View from
Santaís Sleigh keep the spirit alive all year.
Thatís the best part about reading them.
