    Magical, Fairy Tale like Christmas-y story that rubbed me the right way. I didn't love it completely but I truly have no complaints. It seems I visit this Author mostly in December. I should branch out. The writing is superb. ...

    This book has so much going for it. A deft weaving of timelines as well as fantastic and contemporary settings. Compelling main characters with a warm and sympathetic family (and dogs!). Lovely descriptions. And there's sweetness balanced with melancholy depths. I felt caught up in the...

    Tomte is two reads for me the first half is mysterious and fun for me. I love the kid, I love the brothers, and I love Tomte. For me the second half was hard to read because I?M not a fan of fantasy, elves, fairies, and all that jazz. I did like the resolution and the epilogue. ...

    ?It is very hard to explain to people who have never known serious depression or anxiety the sheer continuous intensity of it. There is no off switch.? ~ Matt Haig After Ryan Anderson, of 'Tomte' by Jamie Fessenden, is lost in a winter storm and reappears only the next spring in...

    Fascinating book! When I started reading this book, it was somewhat confusing because it seemed that in our contemporary world, the main character, Ryan and his niece Julia were experiencing bits of magic or fantasy along with our world. As this continued on for some time, what bega...

    This story is magical but also there are bittersweet moments. In the end everything ends up happy for the main characters but there is cost to get there. ...

    It is 2:15 am as I write this and I need to get to bed. Just want to say that I am up so late because no matter how late it was I had to finish this book. This year ends in a few days... and this book is the 380th I have read this year. For me this is the best thing I have read all yea...

    Jamie Fessenden is an excellent writer. I enjoy the majority of his books and was eager to read Tomte. Disclaimer: It's not you; it's ME. I've never been all that interested in mythology, much less Norse mythology, with which I'm barely familiar. I like the idea of the story, a...

    Enjoyed this a ton! Loved reading takes on mythical stories and this one is very interesting. My mind gets twisted when I try to unravel the solution and it?s impact of timelines. So I am just going to shrug my shoulders and not sweat the small details for a change. ...

    Let's start this review off right and tell you I read this in one sitting. I've read many books by Jamie Fessenden and one of my favorite things about this author is his eclectic nature when it comes to books. You can easily research this author and find something that interests you. I...

    Fantasy at its Finest I loved Ryan and Tomte! I felt so sorry for Alex...he was trying to do his best for everyone and was stymied at every turn. Folk tales, especially those from Scandinavia, combined with mythology, are alive with so many twists and turns... Jamie did a wonderful...

    Jamie Fessenden is one of my favorite authors. I had the opportunity to read the beta of this and loved every minute of it. Read in one sitting, this isn't your average ho-ho-hum Christmas story. This is an adventure into the mythology of elves. Whatever magic is needed to write a bo...

    What can I say: spent my Sunday on the couch, selected a nostalgic playlist with a slice or two of panettone and let myself be lured into a fairytale and didn't want to eave it until I finished the epilogue. My plans to go for a run or enjoy sometime outside at the Christmas market com...

    I really don't know why I haven't read more by this Author because his writing is captivating. I wasn't sure what to expect here but from the first page I was all in....I read this in a day. If there's one thing I'm fascinated by it's folklore from other countries. ...

    This was not bad but it wasn't my bag. I'm sure someone else who really enjoys fantasy would love this, but me not so much. 3 stars because despite the fact that I didn't really love it, it's well written and interesting. ...

    **3 stars** This was a very sweet, low angst fantasy story. I quite enjoyed this book from new-to-me author Jamie Fessenden. I also liked the folklore the story is based on. I hadn't heard of a tomte before and it was enjoyable to learn about it. There was very little heat and v...

    This is such a different an interesting take on a Christmas tale. The story is intricate and complex, so much more than just a romance. Jamie Fessenden has built a while world and inhabited it with well rounded characters that I grew to love as the story unfolded. Excellent, unforeseen...

    Just magical I loved this book so much. It was done so well, from the empty feeling Ryan had to his disbelief at the things that started happening around him, to his eventual recollection and reunion. The ending surprised me a bit, but it left me satisfied. Also, that fabulous c...

    A lovely Christmas story not really about Christmas, but about second chances, remembering your roots and Swedish folklore. Being Swedish this was the one book I couldn?t pass this year. I?m lucky it paid off. Somethings were not the way I?ve learnt. However, I suspect I could ...

    This was a lovely, charming, poignant, magical book. I loved all the Norse mythology and elvin lore. I loved the family ties and the sense of history and tradition. It's not your typical, run-of-the-mill Christmas tale. It's so much more than that. I'll be adding this to my list of hol...

    Such a lovely and magical story. I would have loved to have read a full-length novel of this story. It truly would have benefited from the longer length. It would have been great to read about those missing six months in more detail. The relationship building would have been stronger. ...

    This was such a sweet romantic read! I loved it's magical almost fairy tale feel. At first I didn't know what to make of it but as the pieces of the puzzle neatly fit in everything made sense. It's a love through time story. There is humor, magic and sacrifice. I loved how everything w...
