The Truth About Elves by Ekta R. Garg
Holiday Fiction, 126 pages
Published October 19, 2021 by Atmosphere Press

As a bartender in Las Vegas, Curtis seems to have the dream life. He’s single, lives close to the Strip, and only has to worry about when to pick up the next extra shift. No one knows the truth about what happened ten years ago, and no one knows how he spends three months every year: as a part-time elf for Santa Claus.

When Curtis went to the Arctic Circle the first time, he thought he could escape the unthinkable. Now, the anniversary of the worst day of his life is coming up, and he’s been asked to do the unbelievable. If Curtis wasn’t a man of his word, he would turn his back on the whole thing. But Mr. C. took Curtis in when he had nowhere else to go, and now the boss is calling in a favor—the kind that will make Curtis face the memory of the unimaginable.

If you’ve ever wondered whether holiday magic is real, come find out. Embrace the season and the power of forgiveness along with Curtis as he discovers The Truth About Elves.

My thoughts about The Truth About Elves ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first lines.)

First lines—"Prerna rubbed her hands together as she hurried down the long hallway outside Mr. C's office. Glad to be out of the cold, she brushed a few snowflakes from her shoulders then unlocked the door to the waiting room and went outside."

I love reading holiday stories, especially those that give me an insider's glimpse at the behind-the-scene world of Santa, his elves, and the North Pole. It all seems so magical to me. 

The Truth About Elves offers a peek at the troubled life of Curtis, a bartender in Vegas for nine months out of the year and an elf for Santa the other three. Who knew elfing could be a part-time gig? Curtis has some issues to work through but with the help of some Santa magic, things just might work out. 

This is a delightful little story that offered me a little escape for a few hours as I soaked up the wonders of the North Pole and the ever wonderous world and characters surrounding Santa Claus. I highly recommend The Truth About Elves and hope that you take a little time out of your busy schedule this season to enjoy some holiday magic 

I received an ARC of The Truth About Elves via NetGalley and this is my honest opinion of the book.

About the author

Following the completion of her MSJ in magazine publishing from Northwestern University, Ekta’s career in publishing started in 2005 when she became the editor for all special projects out of Community Newspapers, Inc., (now Pamplin Media Group) in Portland, Oregon. Since then she’s enjoyed a tremendous amount of diversity in her career, freelance writing and editing about everything from healthcare to home improvement to Hindi films. In 2010, as the mother to two young children, Ekta added blogging to her resume by starting The Write Edge at http://thewriteedge.wordpress.com. The blog, and its three extension blogs, gives her a place to share her short fiction, book reviews, and parenting adventures.

As a book reviewer for Bookpleasures.com and Netgalley.com, Ekta gets to stay up way too late reading advanced reviewer copies of new adventures by experienced and upcoming authors alike. She also uses The Write Edge as a dynamic communication tool for those interested in hiring her as an editor for their writing projects. She’s met many talented people along the way in the incredible opportunities she’s received to edit short stories, memoirs, how-to books, anthologies, and (her first love) novels.

When not writing and editing, Ekta spends time with friends (the ones other people can see) and ponders just how she came to be so blessed by a husband who loves her and by two beautiful daughters who astound her on a regular basis. ~ Goodreads
