The Last Christmas by Seelie Kay is a wonderful story of Christmas miracles, believing, family, faith, and the power of love.
David and Joan have been given some devastating news that has rocked them to the core. Modern medicine giving them nothing to cling to but despair. Then along comes Santa to throw a different perspective to the situation. Bringing a ray of hope to an otherwise bleak situation. What ensues makes for an emotive and heartwarming Christmas tale.
Well worth the read!

3 out of 5 stars 

One of the things I love most about the holiday season is the promise of miracles and magic. I believe that Santa is more than an imaginary man that delivers toys to children, and for those two reasons alone I needed to read this story. If I am being honest, I am really torn about my final thoughts on the book. The writing was fantastic but there was something about the characters that I didn't entirely click with. I love the premise that Mrs. Wrigh

The Last Christmas by Seelie Kay

This is the first book I've read by the author. Kay is a great author and to see a short story have so much meaning is amazing. This story goes along with the Holidays.

Joan is mourning the loss of her husband even with him not dead. She isn't sure he'll live, but when Santa visits her things change. The quote I chose for Joan is: "I do love him. He knows that. I have been with him every step of the way."

David is dying and he isn't quite ready to go. When

The Last Christmas Seelie Kay is a heartwarming and emotional story that will complete draw you in from start to finish. I think what I enjoyed the most about this book is that it is so far removed from your typical holiday romance and yet still had that magical feel about it. This time of year can feel a little bit saturated when it comes to the holiday stories and yet this one stood out with ease from all the others I have read.
This is a well written and emotional story about a family trying t

Four Stars

The last Christmas gave you the sense that it was over. But it’s Christmas and miracles happen. I liked how the author put humor in something so serious. We all have lost someone from some illness or other. Cancer is a depressing monster. It breaks even the strongest of us down. When life is at its lowest for Joan she gets a spirit bust from Santa. I loved how he laid things out for her. He showed her how she had given up the fig

I loved this Christmas book. It is full of Christmas spirit, magic and of course, it would not be Christmas without Santa. This is a well written story that brings hope to a difficult topic for some. The characters bring the story to life and bring lots of emotions. This is a shorter story that I found to be engaging and fast paced. This is a story about a family whose father is dying of cancer. Santa steps in and tells his wife that she must keep him alive. She wonders how when she has no medic ...more

The Last Christmas by Seelie Kay was a good read. It was very quick, and easy to read as well. It was a very heartfelt novel, full of emotion and some laughter. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. However, while I know this was completely fiction, it felt so unrealistic to me. I also got thrown off a bit from the novel by the sex stuff mentioned. To me, that took away from David's condition. Other than those two things to me, I loved this novel. It was well written and very fast paced. And I loved ...more

This is a truly heartwarming and emotional story about love and faith. It was heartbreaking to read but also inspiring as the family fought side by side.

David has terminal  cancer. He is deteriorating day by day. His wife and family had given up hope of his recovery. That is until Joan, David's wife, got a visit from Santa. He told Joan not to give up hope, that she needed to show David there was something to come back for. So that's what Joan and her family set out to do.

Will their efforts be

David and Joan Wright are given the Christmas Miracle so many desire; a cure for terminal cancer. Santa delivers this miracle to a dying David and his caretaker and wife. The couple has a difficult time believing Santa as modern medicine had failed and it had been a long time since either one truly believed in Father Christmas. Since heaven is full with no room for David, the couple has to work together with love and faith for a cure. It is their love that will fuel the miracle. Will they believ ...more

4 stars!

Great holiday read, also very uplifting and hopeful. I really enjoyed the little bit of Christmas magic thrown in with the ultimate healer being God. It was sweet how Santa was playing an angel as to help this family through some hard times. Without giving anything away, there were plenty of sweet spots, scandalous moments, funny comments and hope throughout the family. With Joan and her 3 kids gathering together to fight for David’s survival and to beat his cancer is inspiring. A nice

A story of faith, a Christmas miracle, love, and belief. Cancer is a topic that is hard for many of us who have lost a loved one to the illness. This story is about a very sick father who has been told that he will not make it to Christmas. His wife is visited by Santa who basically tells her she has given up hope when she must believe she can help her husband. An inspiring tale so the miracle of Christmas!

I didn't know what to expect from this book, but this is one of the most awe-inspiring short stories I have ever read. At times sensual and erotic, at other times overflowing with the love of family, this tale will leave you filled with wonder and believing in Christmas miracles! And the ending... let's just say it will leave you smiling! ...more

Four Stars

The Last Christmas is a story that really brings out the Christmas Spirit. Seelie Kay really has a hit that shows all it takes if faith and a little help from Santa. The story is full of hope, a real fight for life, and a love so strong it will conquer the dreaded C. The story is short and steamy and just a great pick me up during the busy holidays.

The Last Christmas by Seelie Kay is a paranormal romance story that will have you believing in Santa’s magic and the miracle of Christmas. It is a feel-good tale that will leave you warm and mushy. When Santa says he knows the cure who do you believe him or the medical team looking after the one man you love. Will love be enough or will all be lost?
