This novella was very hot. I’m just saying. The fireplace definitely was not the only place that had a roaring fire. Picture a 30-something single female on New Year’s Eve hiding out in her friend’s family cabin. Tamara doesn’t want to spend New Year’s Eve with all the other couple’s kissing at midnight surrounding her, reminding her that she is just a poor lonely Kindergarten teacher. No thank you, instead she will drink the wonderful egg nog her friend left for her at the cabin. In fact, she may have to drink it all before noon as the cabin is freezing and it seems to be the only thing helping keep her warm since she ran out of clothes to layer and can’t find matches to light the fireplace.
Luke has just arrived from another tour of duty in Afghanistan. He wants to hang out at his family’s cabin and then surprise his sister for her birthday. No one knows he is coming, especially not Tamara.
This novella was a satisfying read, but I could definitely see how it could be expanded if Amy Andrews chooses to do a series related to these characters. An outstanding Christmas read!
