Review: On Christmas Eve

User Review  - Jessica Cano - Goodreads

Didn't think I was going to like it, but I couldn't put the book down! As I was reading it, it got me more and more into that Christmas spirit. My favorite character was Tess! She gave a message telling us that anything is possible if you just believe; like she did when she saw Santa. Read full review
