Book Review

This is a very short, very sweet story about an abused man who flees from everyone he knows, only to find out that Santa Claus and the Big Boss were looking out for him. With the definite feel of a fairy tale, be ready for a few cute surprises, extra Christmas magic, and some miraculous falling-in-love.

Oliver is in a very sad state after running from the hospital. I can see how fear drove him to do it, but the consequences of being stuck all alone in a remote cabin with no help, a broken arm, and an injured ankle mean that he's not exactly safe. Add the nightmares he still has and he's not in a good place when a stranger suddenly appears to help him.

Derek is an unexpected "Christmas present" who arrives through the chimney and tries to win Oliver's trust. Not an easy task under the circumstances, but luckily, Derek is extremely determined. And I thought the mistletoe was a very nice touch indeed!

If you like miraculous solutions, and are looking for a sweet read that will make you smile, then you will probably like this short story.
