December Holiday Reviews 2012 – One A Day – #4

To get everyone into the mood for celebrating winter, the final month of the year, or any of the many religious and non-religious festivals that will occur this month, we will showcase reviews for a range of holiday-themed books right here. One a day, and since the books on the web site are all from this year, we’ll give books from previous years some extra attention here on the blog. I hope you will join us in having a look at the “Golden Oldies”!

This is a great short read, reviewed by Serena, who thought it was a realistic, yet sweet romance. You can also find it on the Rainbow Book Reviews site by clicking here.

Book Blurb

A romantic hideaway on a snow-covered mountain – what better place to meet the man who could heal a broken heart?

Question: What’s Brett Masters to do when his best laid plans for a special Christmas alone with his lover in a mountain cabin resort get axed because the lover up and leaves? Brett’s first instinct is to just suck it up, go home early and spend the Yuletide with his family – but it might have been a good idea if he’d called the airline and changed his flight to an earlier one.

Thwarted, he decides to use the cabin he’s paid for, all the while wondering if this form of self punishment is such a good idea. A romantic hideaway without the romantic partner – what’s that about? But fate steps in and takes him for a spin in the arms of Devyn Weston, the resort manager’s hunky brother.

What’s Brett to do when he and Devyn get stranded by a snowstorm?

Book Review

What happens to plans for a romantic get-away when one of the partners ends the relationship to be with another man? Brett faces that situation and, after five years with his now ex, has enormous difficulties dealing with the infidelity that leaves him stranded – in more ways than one.

Considering several other options, none of which really appeal, he ends up at the cabin anyway. I was about to despair on his behalf when all his ‘prospects’ turn out to be unavailable. When he finally meets Devyn, a man who has sworn never to be in another relationship, nothing is easy either.

I liked the realism in this story, even if the funk and depression Brett sinks into took up a lot of space. Life, after all, sometimes seems to be like that. The ‘light at the end of the tunnel’, however, was sweet and well worth the wait! This is a short read I enjoyed.
