DO YOU BELIEVE IN SANTA? by Sierra Donovan is in this week's spotlight. This is the first book in her Evergreen Lane series. Here's what a reviewer had to say about Sierra's book:

“A charming holiday story that combines the magic of It’s A Wonderful Life with the warmth of
A Christmas Carol.”—Donna Alward, New York Times bestselling author

Here's the blurb for DO YOU BELIEVE IN SANTA?:

Miracles don’t just happen on 34th Street. They can happen right in your living room—if you’re willing to believe…
 
What grown woman claims to have seen Santa Claus? Mandy Reese, for one—on a very special Christmas Eve when she was eight years old. These days, Mandy works at a year-round Christmas store in Tall Pine, California, where customers love to hear about her childhood encounter with Saint Nick. But when Jake Wyndham arrives in town—charming, gorgeous, extremely practical—Mandy faces a dilemma. Deny what she saw, or let Jake think she’s sugarplum crazy?
 
Jake scouts hotel locations all over the country, but he’s never met anyone quite like Mandy before. Her warmth and sparkle are irresistible, but…meeting Santa? Really? Jake’s no Scrooge but he’s definitely skeptical. Then again, there are all kinds of things Jake never experienced until he came to Tall Pine. Like autumn snow. Mind blowing kisses. And the magic of falling head-over-heels, madly in love…
