    Evelyn Cuellar

    No es mala la historia, incluso a pesar de ser muy cliché, me parece que tenía potencial de ser entretenida si tan solo fuera más extensa, pero es tan corta que corre demasiado y es muy superficial la narrativa que no llegas a tener el tiempo de engancharte o despertar la curiosidad. Un relato que encontré para estas fechas, no me arrepiento de la lectura pero esperaba más. Reseña completa en Books FD

Bueno pues doy gracias de no haber he pagado. No tenia puestas ningunas expectativas, y aun así, menudo batacazo. La historia podía resultar original, ya que mezcla el mundo de Santa Claus (los elfos, los renos mágicos, la ciudad del polo norte) con una historia de amor, pero teniendo en cuenta que la novela consta de una 50 paginas, decir que se ha quedado corta, es poco. No profundiza en los protas, ni en el romance, ocurre todo en unos día y deprisa, y lo único gracioso es que Santa hace de cupido y por se motivo es por el que se conocen. No me ha convencido para nada, y para lo único que podrían sacar provecho de este libro, es para hacer una pelicula navideña de sobremesa para A3 o TVE (que seguro la harían mejor).

    The North Pole Prize The North Pole Prize is a sweet short story with all of the whimsy of the North Pole and the elves.  The blend of childhood favorites with a contemporary twist was so much fun!  Garrett is an engineer at the North Pole, a Scotsman with a troubled past who even makes an appearance in a kilt!  Always a good moment!  Angelique embodies the holiday spirit and has won a trip to  visit the North Pole.  She, too, has had a bit of a troubled past, but the two could not be more The North Pole Prize The North Pole Prize is a sweet short story with all of the whimsy of the North Pole and the elves.  The blend of childhood favorites with a contemporary twist was so much fun!  Garrett is an engineer at the North Pole, a Scotsman with a troubled past who even makes an appearance in a kilt!  Always a good moment!  Angelique embodies the holiday spirit and has won a trip to  visit the North Pole.  She, too, has had a bit of a troubled past, but the two could not be more different  The romance was sweet and the interactions with the elves were often hilarious.  A short read, but a good one!    My Recommendation   If you love a good, heart warming holiday read, this is a great one!

    Un librito muy insulso, pero lo leí, porque "necesitaba" un cambio de tema del proyecto de lectura (872 págs. de historia universal) que tengo en este momento y ya estaba harta de tantas guerras. Aún así, el libro tiene unos arcos entre escenas muy raros, brinca mucho de un lugar a otro y en ratos me parecía que la historia estaba cortada. El final igual, muy simplón. Creo que fui benévola con las 2 estrellas.

Peccato, l'idea era buona, se avesse avuto almeno un 100 pagine sarebbe stato perfetto. In ogni caso è una lettura piacevole e natalizia. Tre stelline solo per l'ambientazione...davvero da sogno *_*

    This cute Christmas short story has Angelique Devereux winning a trip to the North Pole a week before Christmas. Her guide for the week is Garrett McCree. Garrett is an engineer who was adopted by Santa Claus as a boy and lived at the North Pole ever since. Angelique is pretty outgoing but Garrett is shy so he has a hard time being with her. I enjoyed this fun read about Angelique's visit to Christmas Central. It's a great Christmas story with a modern twist complete with elves!

    Es un libro con un argumento muy sencillo (chica conoce chico) muy breve y en un entorno especial: el Polo Norte donde está el "almacen/casa/fábrica" de Santa Claus. No está mal, pero ni lo volvería a leer ni lo recomendaría. Con este libro cumplo la opción de libro navideño incluido en el reto de Radio Patio.

    História bonitinha. Mesmo sendo um conto, acho que faltaram explicações mais profundas sobre as personagens.

    Both Garrett and Angelique came from families that didnt value them. Can Christmas Central bring them the piece of holiday magic theyve both been missing? This story goes by very fast. And maybe its the short format, but I didnt really feel like I connected to either of the main characters at all. I think Garrett was supposed to come across as methodical and grounded. Instead, he kind of just felt curmudgeonly. Angelique was supposed to be this free-spirited sugar plum fairy, but I thought she Both Garrett and Angelique came from families that didn’t value them.

I felt like there wasn’t enough story to justify it. I received a complimentary copy of this book through Hidden Gems Books as part of the box set.

    Can an introvert come out of their shell? Still a good read but just missing something to bring it on par with the others I've read. When Santa asks him to be tour guide for a competition winner, he is aghast. His tiny office is a sanctuary, a refuge. She is full of life, talks to everyone and loves everything. A real live dynamo. How will the two interact? Why has Santa put them together? Great characters but the story just didn't work. It should have!

    I've been working my way through this series of novellas but not in order. So far, this was my least favorite. I can't really come up with a good reason why but I just didn't love it. It is sweet and clean and has a happily ever after though. If you are looking for a quick read, feel good Christmas story this might work for you. No sex, language or violence.

    El día de hoy os traigo con todo mi pesar, la última obra que hasta la fecha tiene Caroline Mickelson en Español, y me parece que es lo que nos falta a nivel general de una saga navideña, que es una gozada.

Angelique y Garret son fantásticos. El tímido y desconfiado. Ella alegre, vivaz, confiada y encantadora. La novela es la antesala de toda la serie, de hecho, me atrevería a decir que es el prólogo de lo que está por venir en cada una de las novelas que ya conocemos. En esta obra desfilaran todos nuestros duendes y personajes favoritos, mucho antes de haber entregado su corazón. Para mí, esta autora solo representa: magia, esperanza, luz, sonrisas e historias de romance perfectamente bien hiladas, con monólogos que te sacarán sonrisas y al final de la obra dicas ¡Sí creo! Ambiciono poder seguir leyendo más de ella, y que nos saque todas estas maravillas en papel porque definitivamente las necesito acompañándome, sobretodo en estas fechas. Creo que Caroline Mickelson puede fácilmente llegar a vuestro corazón, y os dejara un buen recuerdo. Ambiciono a que saque más libros de navidad, y que el próximo año nos traiga mas de ella, porque la necesitamos.

When it comes to human interaction, like between a man and a woman – not so much. The very last thing Garrett expected was for Santa to put him in charge of catering, tending and constantly being in the same space as the bubbly, constantly happy essay winner. And the absolute, positively final thing he ever expected was to find a woman he could love. Angelique loves Christmas, Santa, elves, magic and giving – lots and lots of gift giving. Her joyous attitude toward anything Christmas related should lighten Garrett’s heart, for he loves the same things… just in a solo type of way. While Angie is on a whirlwind visit to Christmas Central she is determined to gather up enough memories to last a lifetime. And maybe spread a little Christmas cheer herself. She never expected to find the man who would steal her heart with a sexy brogue and a kiss. The North Pole Prize is simply a charming, fun Christmas novella. I adore the Christmas Central stories, it’s like coming home to old friends with each new one. Can’t get enough Christmas stories? Does the discovery of a new to you Christmas novel fill your heart with Christmas joy? Me, too! Then you’ll enjoy this one.

Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a great set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great Christmas Romance movie, an animated cartoon, or better yet a mini TV series. A very easy rating of 5 stars.

È, come tutte le altre fiabe di Caroline che ho letto e recensito fino a oggi, un concentrato di teneri sorrisi e simpatia travolgente il tutto sempre condito da un’imprevista storia d’amore col suo inevitabile “happy end”. Bravissima, ancora una volta, Caroline a proporci una storia con personaggi dei nostri giorni intrisi, però, sempre di un tocco di magia.
