Blurb: Duncan is an ocean from home over the holidays and expects to spend them alone. To his pleasant surprise, one of his European co-workers, Georg, befriends him and includes Duncan in the holiday traditions of his homeland: cutting a Christmas tree under starry skies at Georg’s country estate, decorating it at the family’s city home, and shopping at the Christmas market in Munich. Both men are lonely and realize they have much in common. But Georg’s life is in Germany and Duncan’s is in Boston. With the project they’re working on nearing completion, any chance for more than a holiday fling seems as elusive as stardust.
A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2014 Advent Calendar package “Celebrate!”.
Review – Book: Nikyta reviewed this last Christmas as part of the 2014 Advent Series – Nykita’s review
I agree that this would have been wonderful if it had been longer. Andrew Grey is a fantastic writer and he excels with descriptions of Munich and Fussen which are spot on! The love and caring between Georg and Duncan feel very authentic, plausible and sweet. We are left hoping that their HFN will lead to a lovely HEA!
I really enjoyed this novella and highly recommend it.
Review – Audio:
Andrew McFerrin does a great job with this! His lovely German accent is just strong enough for authenticity but not overwhelming. He has a nice reading pace and does a fantastic job with the emotions and the “acting” needed to bring a story to life.
Overall Impression: I loved it
