Release Day Review: The Clumsy Santa by Sue Brown

Release Day Review: The Clumsy Santa by Sue Brown

The Clumsy Santa
by Sue Brown
Price: $1.99
Publisher: One Hat Press

Falling in love with Santa is the last thing Charlie Johnson expects when he takes a holiday job as an elf in Santa’s Grotto. Nick is the shyest and clumsiest man Charlie has ever met, but that’s just part of his charm. Charlie falls for Santa, whilst Santa falls head over heels onto the floor. At least they can laugh together about it!

But after several weeks, Charlie starts to despair he will ever be more than Santa’s helper. His holiday job is nearly over, yet Nick hasn’t declared anything more than friendship. Will Charlie ever get his real Christmas wish?

4 Stars!

Charlie has been hired as an elf in Santa's Grotto and finds himself falling for Santa, who is shy and so clumsy, he practically needs a handler just not to fall down everytime he walks. Santa/Nick seems interested in Charlie, but after several weeks of working together, Charlie is starting to wonder if he's not just imagining it. 

Charlie is completely adorbs! So sweet and nice, it was fun seeing him so smitten with Santa. I wasn't too sure about Nick/Santa at first. He seemed interested in Charlie, but it took him forever to make a move and when he did, ugh, that first date made me want to scream at him. He made up for it, though, and I enjoyed seeing Charlie and Nick fall for each other. They had great chemistry together! 

I loved reading Charlie's interactions with Katie, who was awesome, too. I found the Head-Elf annoying and I wanted the Grotto to fall over him so he could be out of commission for a bit. Hee. 

This was such a lovely holiday story! Cute and sweet, for the most part, although there was a part with a little boy that had me in tears more than once, and just perfect for the season. Very recommendable!
