A Christmas story for those who believe when love is involved, anything is possible. Mac O'Brien is wealthy and powerful - but since the death of his father, the magic has gone out of his life. So he makes a wish for happiness, and Merry Nicholas, his new housekeeper, breezes into his world. Merry, with twinkling eyes, rosy cheeks, and snow-white hair, reminds Mac of Mrs. Claus, and when she pulls knitting needles from her candy cane-striped carpetbag, she weaves an enchanted spell around Mac, leading him to happiness, and to the woman he's destined to love.
I really enjoyed this book! It was sweet and an easy read that made you smile. It was a perfect light Christmas read that didn't ´require very much of your concentration. Sometimes that is perfect. This read was like a holiday for your mind.
I liked Merry Nicholas, Aka Mrs Claus, she was hilarious and she made this book funny. And she did now where to put her little nose. She also brought a little magic to the story that I enjoyed.
I was a little bit surprised though at first because I thought the setting would be Christmas but it was actually summer when the book started but even so, it was still about Christmas since Merry the housemaid insisted in having Christmas every day and she brought that magic into Mac's life and restored his faith in Christmas and in happiness for himself as well.
Like I said it was a sweet, light and sometimes funny story that is perfect if that is what you crave.
