Welcome back to Countdown to Christmas – Week Four! Countdown to Christmas is a weekly feature where I recommend a different Christmas-y book each week to read during this holiday season, which was inspired by Kourtni Reads‘ Christmas countdown!
This week’s pick is Clara Claus by Alexandra Lanc.
Jack Frost is about to lose everything. After attempting to again destroy Christmas, the Holiday that he hates more than anything, he is threatened with losing his job, and his Immortality. But, he is given one last chance at redemption.
That last chance lands Jack in the North Pole the week before Christmas, in order to help Santa Claus prepare for his busiest night of the year. There, Jack is tasked with the job of “Tour Guide”, in order to show Santa’s granddaughter, Clara, the sights of the Pole.
As Christmas draws nearer, and Jack’s time begins to run out, he finds himself becoming fond of Clara, who attempts to show him the real meaning of Christmas, all while shocking him with her unique view of the world.
But, the past proves hard to reconcile, and soon, Jack hatches one last plan to destroy Christmas, a plan involving Clara, which may prove fatal not only for the Pole, but for her, as well — unless Clara can melt his icy heart in time.
The first book in the fan-favorite series, the Snowflake Triplet, Clara Claus is a fantastical adventure that reminds us of the importance of hope, and the real meaning of Christmas.
Clara Claus is such a fun, Christmas book! It is definitely underrated. It is so entertaining and has a lot heart. Not only did I love Clara, I also really loved the author’s take on Jack Frost. I also really liked how the legendary characters (Jack Frost, Santa, the Sugar Plum Fairy, etc.) immortality was explained. I am still eagerly waiting for the next book in the series, which I think comes out next Christmas. Also, you can get this book for free wherever ebooks are sold!
