The Twelve Topsy-Turvy, Very Messy Days of Christmas by James Patterson

Will and Ella Sullivan live with their dad, Henry, in a big old house. There has been little joy in the house since their mom, Katie, passed away several years ago. Even though they have grown apart over the years, Ella and Will thought that if their dad had someone in his life, their lives would be better too. So, they created a profile for him on a dating app and got a response from a Ms. Truelove. 

But Henry catches them in the act of reviewing Ms. Truelove’s response and he fires off a message to Ms. Truelove confirming that his children had set up the profile and that he was not interested in anyone because he had already had one true love in his life that was now gone.

But of course, that’s not the end of the story.  The next day the family received a mysterious gift. And the gifts continue each day, creating havoc among the family members, in their home, and in their lives.  

This is a sweet and funny story about loss and love that was very enjoyable.
