I never thought I'd seek out novels with Christmas in the title! but yes, I did yesterday, for some relief from some heavier reading about trauma.

From the Christmas romances I've read to date, I knew I'd find something that would provide some good cheer!

And so I did - this novel is just the ticket.

Our MCs are Gideon Holiday and Paul Frost - oh my, that is taking it a bit far Annabeth Albert! Gideon is the ever cheerful, helpful, upbeat lover of all things Christmas. Paul is the grumpy neighbour for whom the season is no different from the rest of the year, and who has no interest in lighting his house.

Spoiler: Paul's brother Brandon announces he is coming home for Christmas with his girlfriend and that he plans to propose to her on Christmas Day! Paul loves the idea but he is utterly out of his depth - Gideon is the knight in shining lights! He decorates Paul's near empty home, he plans menus, he buys gifts, he Christmasifies the house! it's wonderful - and he becomes irresistible to the former Scrooge, Paul.

But Gideon believes he will be disposable after Christmas, after his usefulness. I don't know why I identified so strongly with this - my face was wet for the last stage of the story. No hesitation in giving this 4 stars, in part due to how right Tim Paige is for narrating these holiday stories.

Narrated by Kirt Graves and Alexander Cendese.

I don't know why it has taken me so long to get around to #1 of the Vino & Veritas series, which I've enjoyed so much.

It's short - 5 hours - and it's written by Annabeth Albert to boot!

Harrison is the ex-Boston lawyer who retreats to New Hampshire and opens the Vino & Veritas bookstore and bar. The bookstore is a nod to his mother, who I think was a teacher, and she helps with the project.

I don't recall her being mentioned in other books, but she is a great character.

Harrison is mentioned in subsequent books and I appreciated getting to know the man behind this wonderful Burlington institution.

He meets Finn, a local chicken farmer - although it's much more than that - the farm is a tourist venue. There's immediate attraction between the two, and it's one of those satisfying romances between mature, well-established folks who know what they want. These are really good guys, and despite all that work that dominates their lives, they make time for a sweet romance fate has unexpectedly proffered.

Good to hear Kirt Graves again who was well cast as Harrison. I seem to run into Alexander Cendese with every other book - no complaints mind you - but at first I thought he was too much for farmer Finn, adding certain more extroverted personality to Finn.

(After reading the comments) I'm glad I didn't read #1 first, as Featherbed is indeed "sweet and low angst" (SharingTheBookLove), and, JorgeousJotts, spot on in calling it out for being too Hallmarkish! I might not have returned to the series again and again if I'd read this novel first, as I'm not a fan of Hallmarkishness! I can say that after reading 10 others in the series, they have mostly stayed just out of range of that classification! Carolesrandomlife - you make a good point with the idea of a chicken farmer hero drawing you to the book.

I've just been reading Sarina Bowen's information about her megaseries, World of Truth North, of which Vino & Veritas is one of the series - the others being Moo U, Busy Bean, and The Speakeasy. It appears I haven't read any from these other World of True North books, all multi-author series, so that is a feast in store.

This was a fun little holiday read. The book is well-written. The characters are fun and well-developed. We could have used a little more detail about Nick's background and why he was the way he was. The details given were a little sparse and not all together so you had to piece it together yourself.

The plot was a bit predictable as is the plot of most romance books, but the added holiday twist was nice. Sometimes holiday romances get too sappy but this one was not.

All in all it's a cute little holiday read and I recommend it.… (mer)
