North Pole engineer Garrett McCree values his peace and quiet above all else, and his life runs according to a carefully crafted master plan. Until, that is, Santa Claus asks Garrett to play chaperone to the winner of the North Pole Prize essay contest. Out of loyalty to Santa, Garrett reluctantly agrees. After all, how much trouble can one woman possibly be? But when beautiful and vivacious Angelique Devereaux, a Christmas-loving, serial gift giver arrives at Christmas Central, Garrett soon realizes the answer to that question. Predictable is out, spontaneous is in, and Garrett’s heart will never be the same.

My Review

The North Pole Prize is a sweet short story with all of the whimsy of the North Pole and the elves.  The blend of childhood favorites with a contemporary twist was so much fun!  Garrett is an engineer at the North Pole, a Scotsman with a troubled past who even makes an appearance in a kilt!  Always a good moment!  Angelique embodies the holiday spirit and has won a trip to  visit the North Pole.  She, too, has had a bit of a troubled past, but the two could not be more different  The romance was sweet and the interactions with the elves were often hilarious.  A short read, but a good one!

My Recommendation

If you love a good, heart warming holiday read, this is a great one!
