Jules is a hard-working girl who can barely afford bus fare. Elvis is an eager Christmas Elf looking to do a good deed and move on. Will a little Christmas magic help bring a deeper meaning to the season for both of them?
Christmas is on the way, but Jules isn’t in the mood this year. She and her dad are barely making ends meet, and with extra bills piling up, how can they afford Christmas? Jules needs a new muffler for her car, and school tuition is looming—but the peppermint on top? Her boyfriend has just dumped her in a text message!
Her boss at the coffee shop insists that all employees must write a letter to Santa and post it on the window, Jules decides to be painfully honest about what she needs—but is there any hope she will get it?
Elvis, a handsome hunk, shows up to the coffee shop after she posts her letter, intending to help. Claiming to be one of Santa’s elves, Elvis tells Jules all the magic the Christmas season has to offer can be hers, if she only believes. Is that too much to ask for?
The bus slid up to the stop near the coffee shop. I hustled out the door and rushed toward the store, noticing a guy reading the letters to Santa in the window. There were five minutes ‘til opening. I didn’t want to disappoint Joe again by being late, so I broke into a trot – and slipped on a chunk of ice. The sidewalk was coming up fast, but I fell into the arms of the letter reader.
He smiled one of the most adorable smiles I’ve ever seen, and a cute little dimple creased his cheek. “You smell like peppermint,” he said.
I opened my mouth, stammered like an idiot, and shut up. Mr. Dimple held me close. I didn’t want to move. He owned a very solid body, with unkempt, curly, sandy blond hair that covered his ears, and ice blue eyes that pierced my soul. I melted like a snowman in June.
“Hi Elvis,” I managed to squeak.

REVIEW: 5 Stars, Kindle Customer:
This has a lot of humor and the setting is New Hampshire at Christmas time. What could be better. I could picture it all in my head as I read the story and I felt like my heart was warmed and I was helped at the end to feel better about life in general. Very uplifting reading!
