A wish for winter / Viola Shipman.

Shipman, Viola, (author.).


"Despite losing her parents in a tragic accident just before her fourteenth Christmas, Susan Norcross has had it better than most, with loving grandparents to raise her and a gang of quirky, devoted friends to support her. Now a successful bookstore owner and beloved member of her small Michigan lakeside community, Susan is facing down forty-the same age as her mother when she died-and she can't help but see everything she hasn't achieved, including finding a love match of her own. So it seems cosmically unfair that the man she makes an instant connection with at an annual Santa Run is lost in the crowd before she can get his name. What follows is Susan and her friends' hilarious and heartwarming search for the mystery Santa-covering twelve months of social media snafus, authors behaving badly and dating fails-as well as a poignant look at family, friendship and what defines a well-lived life"--Publisher description.
