Maddie Blake hates marriage! To her, marriage is a trap that ruins any good relationship. She lived through one bad marriage and she has no intention of letting it happen to her and Cole, who she has been together with for six months. She loves Cole…but marriage? No way!

Maddie runs out of the house after Cole proposes and wouldn’t you know it, she gets hit…by a sleigh driven by an elf named Darwin. No joke. Darwin doesn’t know what to do, so he brings her to the North Pole where Maddie gets a few lessons from a tall elf name Al and the big man himself, Santa Claus.

With her arrival at the North Pole, Maddie experiences things she would never have believed possible. Dakota Cassidy’s imagination really kicks in here and she creates a North Pole that would be an amazing place to visit. Just as Maddie experiences everything the North Pole has to offer, so does the reader as they journey through the North Pole through Maddie’s eyes. It’s definitely an exciting visit.

Though very short, only thirty pages, this is nevertheless a great addition to Dakota Cassidy’s Ex-Files series. The reader gets to see how Maddie and Cole are doing, while also visiting some new characters that Cassidy has created. While it is a quick read, this is definitely a pleasurable trip to the North Pole that allows Maddie to see that a happy future only lies with Cole. Whether you’re new to the Ex-Files series or an old friend of the series, this is one story that will brighten up your holiday season.
