"Santa's Secret" by Christy Hardman and Phil Porter

I know it's not even the end of October yet but there are a wealth of really exciting Christmas titles hitting the shelves and I can't wait to start talking about them. Today I'll talk about Santa's Secret, Christy Hardman's second book, which she co-wrote with Phil Porter. The back cover blurb reads:

Of everything to do with Christmas, Phil loves to play Santa Claus the most. When he puts on his Santa suit, something magical happens--for the people of his town, he becomes Santa. The only problem is that Andrew, his own son, doesn't know. And Phil doesn't want to tell him. Phil wants everyone to keep the magic of Christmas for as long as possible, so how can he tell Andrew that he is Santa? Will Andrew lose the special magic of Christmas if he finds out the truth? But if Phil doesn't tell Andrew, how can Phil balance his time being Santa with his time for his family? Will Phil have to miss Andrew's Christmas in order to be Santa? Santa's Secret is the heartfelt story of the importance of family and the truth that being Santa isn't about fame or attention--it's about changing lives and fostering faith and good hope.

And can't we all just use a dose of this going into the holiday season? haven't read this book yet, but It's high on my list. Christy is a mom working on a college degree, who runs half marathons, quilts and writes for her local paper. You can learn more about Christy and her books on her website.
