All is not sparkly snowflakes and sweet candy canes in North Pole City. Office workers Tim and Noel do nothing all day but antagonize each other - petty fighting that might be based on hatred… or a heated mutual attraction. It's up to Jack Frost and his elf-friend Rudy to broach the hostilities and introduce some Christmas kisses, but is the Frost Prince up to the challenge of launching a new romance when someone's trying to break his holiday spirit?
A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2012 Advent Calendar package “Evergreen”.

Cute story but not amazing
Fun Holiday story!
I never read the print, I quite liked the audio though.
Tim, he was bound and determined not to be miserable, though Noel gave it a valiant effort to make sure he was most of the time.
All of them, I loved all the different characters and what they brought to the story.
It did leave a smile on my face.
Mending Noel is a Christmas tale with a fun twist. All your favorite characters like Jack Frost, Rudy, the elves and toy soldiers are people in this version. North Pole City isn't all presents, pretty little elves filling Santa's sleigh and parties with spiked egg nog. Jack Frost is the closeted Prince in a hidden long term relationship with the fastest flyer in the land, Rudy Reindeer. When a couple of residents, Tim and Noel, stumble upon some traitors to the City that seem to be working with the Mouse King, they inadvertently bring Jack and Rudy in on their trouble. The four of them will have to set their differences aside and work together if they are going to save North Pole City from the Mouse King. And more importantly, mend two relationships, one broken, and one bent.
I had so much fun listening to this crazy tale, written by Charlie Cochet and brought to life with Dave Gillies voice. I've always thought that Gillies voice was jolly, upbeat and energetic and all that came through crisply in the story. The twist on the classic tale was odd, but I found myself completely engrossed in the story about five minutes in. I especially enjoyed the little game of cat and MOUSE at the end. See what I did there?
Perfect little Holiday story, well written and well conveyed by Dave Gillies. Left a smile on my face, and I can't wait to start the next story in this fun Christmas themed series.
