I was given a free copy by the author for an honest review. Otherwise, I wouldn't have picked this to read for myself, I'm not big on holiday movies or books. However, this book has changed my mind.
It's a wonderful story about Robin and Jonas. I was pleasantly surprised. There were genuine feelings, hard struggles, and reality throughout this novel mixed with addiction to find out what happens. The characters make you wish you could be friends with them and share in their lives.
I'm interested now in the other book in this series, and would be happy to read how Cheyenne and Jacob find their HEA. The story of Robin and Jonas. I have fallen in love with Jonas. He has made mistakes in the past but knows what he wants now, and that is Robin. He is willing to stand up for his desires.
He has so much patience with Robin, with her anxiety issues. She has always been the "to go girl". Jonas helps her so much to bring back the magic and joy of Christmas. I highly recommend this book for a Christmas read.
Shows the true meaning of love and forgiveness. Robin deals with anxiety attacks do to a mugging she had. She has lost her Christmas spirit and doesn't know how to get her self back together.

A mugging has left her scared and prone to anxiety attacks. She is very caring and loyal to her friends Cheyenne and Jacob along with Cheyenne's kids. They are very special people and she is her old self with them. She is still a very sweet caring girl who has been through a lot.

I really liked him and how he tries his best to help Robin and doesn't push her. I adored this book. Robin and Jonas are perfect for each other. I hate that Robin has suffered and seems weak at first but she truly comes back stronger I believe.

She has a lot of things thrown at her at once but she never stops being there for people when they need help. Jonas also has to come to terms with his parents and changes from what he was. This is a book about two peoples journey into their past and trying to see if they have a future. I love all the characters except Eric and Jonas's parents. The author has created characters that touch you deeply and you never want to let go of them. If you haven't ever read one of her books make sure you do as she is wonderful.
Dec 22, Katie rated it it was amazing.
I have read a few books by this author now and this one was everything that I have come to expect from Nikki Lynn. She always manages to create such likeable characters and heart-warming stories. I read this as a standalone but it is part of The Secret Santa series and I believe the characters do appear in the other books but each book focuses on a different character. Poor Robin is let shaken and her spirit in humanity broken after she was mugged. Until Jonas comes back into her life. Jonas wants to get Robin back so he comes up with a cheesy holiday themed challenge — twelves dates in twelve days!
I loved the storyline between Robin and Jonas, she was clearly hurt when he chose his parents over her but he was determined to show her that he still loved her and was willing to pull out all the stops to get her back.
It just goes to show that sometimes people do deserve that second chance! A lovely heart-warming story that will definitely get you in the Christmas spirit! I definitely recommend it!

This is such a great series with amazing characters! I really loved getting to know Robin in The Secret Santa Wishing Well and in this book you got to see more of the strong and amazing friendship between Robin and Cheyenne.
In this one it is more Cheyenne who is there for Robin but the two have the type of friendship that many women would love to have with someone! Jonas was really trying to prove to Robin how much he had changed and he worked super hard at finding special things to do with Robin. He was there for her anytime Eric came around and gained the trust of Cheyenne and Jacob. I was definitely surprised with what went on with Jonas's parents and how everything tied together. I also like how I believe the author is setting up the next book by giving us a glimpse of Petra and what she is going through.
I currently hate Eric so we'll see how the author tries to get us to change our mind on him! One lovesick ex-boyfriend, two controlling in-laws, three revealed secrets, four new family members and whole lot more anxiety! They are both so young but had to deal with so much, it was very touching.
