Blurb: Kris Hamilton escaped the rat race in LA to live his dream of owning an art studio and making snow globes in a Christmas-themed town in northern Minnesota. But life in a tiny town isn’t as peaceful as advertised, and being treated like an outsider is making Kris’s Tourette’s flare up. When he inadvertently offends Tyr Tollefson—a beautiful blond giant of a man—Kris is ready to chuck it all. But he strikes up an unlikely friendship with Tyr’s cousin Bun, who shows them the magic of Christmas and gives them both a lesson in love and acceptance.



This was an amazingly cute short story about a man (Kris) with Tourette’s who moves from LA to Christmas Town, Minnesota to make snow globes. Everyone in town hates that he’s “different,” and he feels very isolated and alone.

A unique family comes in, and his disease sparks up and embarrasses him in front of Tyr who Kris finds very hot. Luckily, Kris gets a chance to redeem himself and Tyr gives him another shot.

A lot happens in this short story – we see two different situations (Tourette’s and dwarfism), bullying, a health crisis, bigotry, depression, hope and a very sweet love story with a lot of “feels”.

I absolutely adored the narrator – Dave Gillies – who has a delightful accent that just feels so appropriate for this holiday themed romance.

I highly recommend this audiobook and will look for both the author and the narrator in the future.

Overall Impression: I loved it!

*I received a copy of this book from the publisher in return for a fair and honest review.*
