Goodreads Summary:
"The world was given the greatest gift, and that's what started Christmas."
Jack Frost has done it again! He's tried to destroy Christmas, and now he's going to loose his job--for good. And the only thing that can save him is something he doesn't want...to fall in love with a human before sunrise on Christmas morn.

As Christmas draws nearer and Jack's time ticks by, Santa's granddaughter Cl
ara arrives in the North Pole. Playing the role of "tour guide", Jack feels drawn to the snow obsessed girl, who sees things as no one else does. But when faced with the chance to leave the past behind, will the prince of winter choose to look towards the future? Will Jack's new plan to destroy Christmas prove fatal for the North Pole and its holiday, or can Clara finally melt his icy heart?
My Review:
I’ve got to say, this novel really surprised me! I’d never really come across a YA book about Christmas before and didn’t really know what I was going to make of it – but I totally fell in love with it!

After trying to destroy Christmas once again, the Winter Council have decided that Jack has to fall in love with a human before Christmas morning if he wants to continue being Jack Frost.

Clara goes to the North Pole to spend Christmas with her grandfather, only to discover that he is Santa Claus! And who has he assigned to show her around the place? None other than the cold-hearted Jack Frost.

With only a week until Christmas, Jack decides to try and use Clara in his latest attempt to destroy the holiday in which he hates before he is kicked out of Council. But the more Jack gets to know Clara, the less he can deceive her. Will her really be able to use her in order to ruin Christmas if it means breaking Clara’s heart?

I adored Jack Frost! He is seriously a brilliant character! This story is very much about his life changing before his very eyes and him learning to accept and deal with the events of his past. He may not be very nice at times, but you can’t help but love him! And Clara is just a big sweetheart!

I found the story completely unique and quite a breath of fresh air! It's beautifuly written and is totally different to anything I’ve read before. I’m sure this is a book that I will now read every Christmas!

This is a really heart-warming story about love and hope that is the perfect read for the holidays. If you only read one book this Christmas, make sure it’s this one!
