Miss Kane's Christmas - Caroline Mickelson

Too sweet, too twee, too much forced Christmas cheer with insta-love - and not enough story development or fleshed out characterizations. Carol Claus, daughter of Santa Claus, is going undercover as a nanny (Carol Candy Kane) to the Hanson family as a favor to her dad. The father of the family is working on a book "Beyond Bah Humbugs: Why Lying to Your Children about Santa Claus is a Bad Idea", and wants a low key, low expectations holiday for him and his two kids (girl 8 and boy 5). Miss Kane must help him find the Christmas magic before he ruins Christmas for his kids forever. In addition to all the toos I mentioned at the beginning, there is also the spectre of the awful, evil dead wife. At least it was short 91 pages.
