A short Christmas audiobook. Perfect for the holidays to get or to stay in the holiday's ambiance.

It is a story about new beginnings, new friendships and is filled with the joy of happiness that Christmas brings. And as a bonus, there is also an adorable dog!

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the audiobook. #scribd #audiobook

It's been awhile since MKA published a Christmas Book so I bought it when it first came out. Saved it until Christmas. Loved it's small town, old house fixer upper with Christmas decorations setting. Enjoyable read but not overly memorable. Ending was a bit twee. Can't see it becoming a yearly tradition.

Of 3 Christmas books by MKA Blue Christmas is my favorite. Not so much for story but for descriptions of decorations & recipes extras.🎅🏻

Crinoline_Laphroaig Not sure why I still have Christmas Bliss on my shelves. My Goodreads Review was ⭐⭐ and I said it didn't have any laugh out loud moments. It and The Santa Suit are going in the Giveaway Pile. 1mo
Crinoline_Laphroaig I'm keeping Blue Christmas. As I said not so much for the story but for the decorating inspiration and recipes. 1mo

3.5⭐️ For a Christmas book, it was a cute story. I don‘t think that one could ingratiate yourself into a small community that quickly, at least I don‘t think I could. But it was a nice little story nonetheless. #2021 #fiction #bookreview #bookstagram #christmasstories #averymerryreadathon #wintergames2021 #mistletoemaniacs +41pts

The Santa Suit was a nice, sweet Christmas story. It was also a short read, which was nice. To escape her divorce, Ivy buys an old farmhouse and discovers a Santa suit in the closet and an old note that leads her to make friends in her new town. I only got in a short walk today because it started raining. #audiowalk

bnp You have done so well with walking this year Kathy. I live seeing you maps and photos. 1mo
KathyWheeler @bnp Thank you! There was a time when I wasn‘t doing so well with the walking; I‘m glad I got back to it. 1mo

I think this story would work really well as a Hallmark movie but as a book it fell a bit flat for me. I really liked the characters and setting but the premise was a bit unrealistic & the plot resolved too neatly. 🎄🎄🎄

What a perfect book for this time of the year! I‘ll admit, it wasn‘t very “deep”. It was what you‘d expect for a Christmas story. This is the first year that I decided to read seasonal moves, and I‘m glad that I did. It really helps put me in the Chris spirit. This particular story was very magical. I‘d love to find and old home and a little town like the one described in the story. Merry Christmas, all!!

This is my last pre-holiday read! It is a much more expected romance with the storyline trope of a woman, freshly single, moving to a small (NC) town to restart her life. And as with most small town romances, there are quirky townspeople, blue-collar love interests, and a bit of holiday magic. #romantsy

The Santa Suit by Mary Kay Andrews… my 1st holiday book of the season. I love holiday books and this one is so sweet and inspiring! Is a story about starting over, a story of coming full circle. Bravery, hope hope, peace. When the present meets the past and the past comes back to the present. When the magic of the holiday season brings it all together with an ancient but magical santa suit, a child's heartfelt note, the (cont in comments)

TheHeartlandBookFairy the tender heart of one woman, and a big dose of holiday spirit ❤ This charming book has all the feels and is just the thing to get you in the mood for the holiday season! 3mo

I usually love Mary Kay Andrews so much, but this one fell short for me. There has been an annual publishing of Christmas novellas published by our favorite Beach Read authors, however they typically are rushed and are lackluster. I say this, just to note, that this is not the only book of this genre I feel this way about.

AmyG Thanks for the heads up. I usually enjoy her books. 4mo

I‘m so excited to have received this special package from Mary Kay Andrews, Friends & Fiction, Nantucket Book Partners, & Mitchell‘s Book Corner! Not only is there a signed book, but a F & F mug, hot cocoa, a bookmark, a letter, a recipe, & a special video!

tpixie @wanderinglynn yes! It‘s a little early to post Christmas books, but I was a little impatient since I just got it in the mail. I‘ll have to set the book aside until November to read with my IRL Bookclub. I bought three books from friends and fiction so I could receive some bookish gifts along with them! 4mo

This was an oddly paced and short book. There are a lot of threads that are resolved quickly and easily and the romance was completely rushed. I found the entire plot too fluffy and low stakes for my taste. Some of the conversations felt a little stilted and the interactions between practical strangers unrealistic. This might be an enjoyable relaxing holiday novel for some readers but I didn‘t connect to the main character or plot 3 stars

Everyone needs a little dose of the Christmas magic throughout the year and this is the book to give you that. The story is about a recently divorced young women who moves to a small, rural community to restart her life. In the process she finds new friends and if she will allow maybe even love. A sweet story and one that falls into the beach read category despite the Christmas theme. 4 Stars Review is on my blog at www.thespineview.com

Readers are in for a treat this holiday season! Mary Kay Andrews's "The Santa Suit" is a small town Christmas story that comes with all of the charm and none of the usual banality that marks these types of romances. It is fun to see Ivy regain her holiday spirit as she makes everlasting friendships with the people of Tarburton. Also, the romance between Ivy and Ezra helps to knock this one out of the park. Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC. ❤❤
