About the Book
CC is one of Santa’s elves and the Chief Candy Chef at the North Pole. Her favorite candy—candy canes! When a candy cane delivery doesn’t go as planned, other elves take that accident and change it into opportunity. A simple creative act of kindness changes a life and Christmas Royalty becomes a possibility for many others. The Candy Cane Princess will captivate the Princess in all of us.
