I'm really glad I decided to read this one. Scarlett Bailey (alterego for Rowan Coleman) writes with a verve and energy that make me desperate to turn the pages at breakneck speed. Santa Maybe was no exception. With elements of Dickens' A Christmas Carol, this is a fun read about life, love and family.
When Amy finds Santa in her bedroom, she doesn't know what's going on. Is she dreaming? Hallucinating? Or could the man in red really be the love of her life? She's taken on a magical journey through time and space, visiting faraway lands and mixing with Marilyn Monroe and Frank Sinatra, and as Christmas draws nearer she's faced with the ultimate choice - family or true love?
There were times I had to suspend my disbelief as this is essentially a festive fairytale for adults, but that's the beauty of fiction - anything can happen! And in Santa Maybe it probably does...
A read to whisk you away from the Christmas mayhem to a place where anything can happen.
- an original and interesting concept and plot
- a down to earth and likable female lead character
- a sinfully attractive and charismatic Santa
- an adventure through time and space with some great cameos
- a modern day love story with a twist
All together it adds up to a great read and a perfect treat.
Taking in Bethlehem, New York and of course The North Pole and with a cast of characters that includes some familiar famous faces from history, a group of trainee angels and some very cool elves, Santa Maybe is an enjoyable quick read that will leave you with a smile on your face. I loved my namesake Amanda the celestial probation officer and thought the variety and pace of the plot was excellent.
And for those looking for a good dose of romance this is an excellent choice as Santa takes Amy to visit the scenes of relationships past, present and future to help Amy find the love of her life. Scarlett Bailey has a great sense of humour and I'm looking forward to reading her new full length Christmas novel Married by Christmas next.
As we go through with Amy to all the places she visits, to go back and see how fun can be had, to see what really happened on a particular night when you only thought there was one outcome and how life could perhaps turn out, it makes you realise that perhaps everything is meant to happen for a reason.
When the ultimate choice is given to her, Amy has a test of faith and if she can give up her family and never see them again she could live happily ever after. It was at this bit I shed a tear or two, the obvious closeness of her to her mother made me realise how lucky I am with my own mum and I know I could never give up seeing her or being in contact. Amy has to find a loophole and she can if she stands up for what she believes in. Then perhaps all her wishes will come true, not just the one that Santa has to fulfill her.
A little Christmas love story, which has relevant markers and references you will recognise from the here and now; Gok Wan, Derren Brown and an Xbox to name a few. Then there are the old classics; Dean Martin, Marilyn Monroe and even Powell and Pressburger and if you have ever seen the wonderful film A Matter of Life of and Death you will perhaps see where this author is coming from with this little story.
I really enjoyed this book and will certainly be reading from this author again.
Santa takes her on a journey to see the awful Gavin,who broke her heart 3 years ago, the father who deserted her as a child and many interesting little vignettes along the way, to her final love match with Dave, soulmates who overcome all the odds to fall in love and marry.
The action takes place on a single night and does, as other reviewers have mentioned, have a touch of Dickens 'A Christmas Carol' about it, but unlike Scrooge, Amy's life has been made miserable by the actions of others.
I'ts a cosy litle book just right for the Christmas Season and you won't be disappointed by the happy ending, either!
