Abstract:

"Before Christmas comes... Martin Nightingale is no stranger to Cape Light. He spent many happy summers there as a boy. Now he has returned to fulfill the unusual terms of his grandfather's will. In order to collect his inheritance, Martin must spread joy throughout the town with anonymous gifts. A shy man who doesn't make friends easily, Martin is stumped by his new role as Secret Santa. But as a pretty police officer named Louisa Tully shows him, 'A stranger is just a friend you haven't met yet.' One Christmas, long ago... Martin's grandfather Walter was a toy-making genius, but he was a terrible businessman. The Christmas of 1955 seemed to be the last for Nightingale's Magical Toy Shop until miracles arrived, along with a stray dog named Otis. But as Martin discovers, his grandfather's greatest legacy is a priceless lesson about giving from the heart"--
