Can’t Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally, they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Dear Santa by Debbie Macomber
Publication Date: October 19, 2021
Page Count: 272 pages
Publisher: Ballentine Books
Genre: Fiction, Romance, Contemporary, Holiday


A special holiday wish list brings about hope, love, and second chances in this nostalgic novel from the queen of Christmas stories, #1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber.

Lindy Carmichael isn’t feeling particularly joyful when she returns home to Wenatchee, Washington, for Christmas. The man she thought was “the one” has cheated on her with her best friend, and she feels completely devoid of creativity in her graphic-design job. Not even carolers or Christmas cookies can cheer her up—but Lindy’s mother, Ellen, remembers an old tradition that might lift her daughter’s spirits.

Reading through a box of childhood letters to Santa and reminiscing about what she’d wished for as a young girl may be just the inspiration Lindy needs. With Ellen’s encouragement, she decides to write a new letter to Santa, one that will encourage her to have faith and believe just as she’d done all those years ago. Little does Lindy know that this exercise in gratitude will cause her wishes to unfold before her in miraculous ways. And, thanks to some fateful twists of Christmas magic—especially an unexpected connection with a handsome former classmate—Lindy ultimately realizes that there is truly no place like home for the holidays.

In Dear Santa, Debbie Macomber celebrates the joys of Christmas blessings, old and new.

Why I Can’t Wait!

I have loved every book I’ve read written by Debbie Macomber. She writes sweet, and emotional romance and women fiction. I love her writing style and I always know what to expect with her books.

  1. Thank you Rachel. That cover is so lovely. Debbie Macomber is quite a prolific writer, and I’ve read many of her books and find them all so comforting.

  2. I haven’t read any of her books for years. Maybe I need to revisit her and read this one. Probably not until a lot closer to Christmas though😊

  3. Great pick Wendy!! I love Debbie’s stories and her holiday books always leave me with all the right feels. I hope we both love this one!🤗📚☕💜
