Becoming Santa is a work of fiction in the holiday drama, emotional fiction, and cozy reads sub-genres, and was penned by author Jacqueline Gillam Fairchild. Written as a novel in the Nantucket Tuck You Inn Series, this charming work follows the exploits of a mysterious woman who arrives on the island of Nantucket with no memory of who she is. As Belle becomes a cause of gossip amongst the locals, she catches the eye of Santa stand-in Harvey Nichols, and he and his little boy Walter are about to have their lives changed by this breath of fresh air. What results is an uplifting holiday drama sure to remind us all of the magic of Christmas.

Author Jacqueline Gillam Fairchild has crafted a cozy little holiday read that will certainly warm the hearts of all those who want a sweet and heartfelt drama to settle into during the dark winter nights. One of the things which particularly impressed me about this work was the quality of the character development and emotional depth, which works deep into the psyche of the comfort that we all seek in our lives. Harvey’s journey with his grief is beautifully portrayed through dialogue and narrated action, and both he, Belle, and little Walter feel like real people whom the audience can root for and fall in love with too. Overall, I would highly recommend Becoming Santa as a charming and engrossing start to a wonderful new series, and one which will sit on readers’ shelves for many holiday seasons to come.
