Christmas Magic is changing and the Kringle Family scrambles to keep up.
A normal electrical substation takes two years to build; but, Lux has 365 days to install one at the North Pole or Christmas Magic will overload the factory and send them back to the Dark Ages.
The one man on the planet with the know-how, the education, and the time to help Lux finish the substation before her Noel deadline, is also the one man who sends sparks through her heart and surges through the power system.
If Lux kisses Matthew Quik—again!—she could blow up Santa’s workshop before she has a chance to save it. If she doesn’t kiss him, she may lose him forever.
This story was so different from the first one that I was surprised. It has a whole intrigue/danger element to it that I just wasn’t expecting added to the romance. I did enjoy the book and I love the premise of this series. It is a rather unique look at the North Pole.
I took off a half star because a lot of the romance angst could have been avoided by having a conversation and I really couldn’t figure out why they couldn’t just voice it.
The story is enjoyable and I loved reading a Christmas story and even though it is only November it made me feel all Christmasy.
