"Twas the Night Before: A Love Story" by Jerry B. Jenkins

While a little earlier to be thinking about the holidays for some...this is also the time of year others start their holiday shopping. I was reminded today of a great romance...with a Christmas twist. "Twas the Night Before: A Love Story", by Jerry B. Jenkins, is the story of Noella and Tom: she's a happy-go-lucky believer in Santa, and he's a jaded newspaper reporter. Even though Tom believes Noella is crazy, she claims to have proof...a necklace given to her one Christmas that no one could ever account for. Tom falls for Noella, but her firm beliefs in the big man make Tom question his love for Noella, and ultimately drives him to go on a quest to find Santa. I don't want to give away too much, but the ending is magical, and will inspire you to believe, if only for a short time, that there is such a thing as magic, and that Santa is really real...not just a figment of our hearts. This is a great read any time of year.
