"A fun read"
George Garrison and Mary Oliver invite Sam, Kevin, and
Stan to attend their Christmas Eve wedding in Snowdon,
Maine. However, due to the weather, Logan Airport and New
England and Upstate New York air travel is shut down. Navy
Commander Sam Merrick, Private eye Kevin Wilder, and
retired football superstar Stan Kjewski learn the only
transportation to Maine is with the "Santa Brigade", a
senior citizen tour group providing good cheer to shelters
Sam finds his high school girlfriend Reba Anderson runs
the program. Kevin sees the opportunity to take prisoner
Callie Brandt to law enforcement officials while making the
wedding. Stan wants to meet forester Dana Freeman and sees
hitching with the geriatric set as an opportunity to do so.
HERE COMES SANTA CLAUS is not an anthology though three
talented writers collaborate on the tale with their own

A pilot, a P.I., and a football star.
A souped-up red bus...
Loaded with senior citizen Santas.
Three ladies, ducking mistletoe...
And the sexiest St. Nicks alive.
Talk about Christmas road trips!
Ho, ho, ho!
The three bad-boy bachelors of Snowdon, Maine, have to make
it to the church on time, or die trying. Due at a friend's
wedding on Christmas Eve, the Fearsome Threesome find
themselves dashing through the snow in the goofiest bus on
Earth--a bright red vehicle filled with a bunch of senior
citizens known as The Santa Brigade. Ho, ho, ho! Decked out
in red and serving up holiday cheer to the masses, a Blue
Angels pilot, a bounty hunter, and a former pro football
player discover 'tis the season for folly as each trips
over his heart to capture the love of the one special woman
for him. And who is to say what they'll find nestled in
their beds as the stockings are stuffed and the gifts
placed under the tree.
