For years, Ethan and Toby have said they’ll never marry, despite Ethan’s secret wishes. So leaving sunny California for snowy Minnesota to witness his sister’s vow renewal is not how he wants to spend his Christmas Eve. It’s the second time she’ll say “I do” in less than a year, when Ethan saying those words to Toby even once is hopeless.
In the run-up to the ceremony, Toby seems to avoid Ethan, and doubts grow in his absence. Ethan can’t help noticing Toby spends more time with Ethan’s family than with him. Little does Ethan know, Toby has desires of his own. But if Toby doesn’t find a way to reveal them, Ethan could leave for home without him.
I’m a huge fan of Posy Roberts and her “Naked Organics” series so I couldn’t wait to grab this Christmas Novella! So glad I did! Wonderful story that just makes you feel good.
Ethan’s sister is renewing her wedding vows. Vows she just took earlier in the year. Why she gets to say them twice while he will never get to is grating on him. He is madly in love with Toby but he also knows Toby’s stand on No Marriage. When Toby surprises Ethan with an early Christmas present, to go back home to Minnesota for the renewal ceremony and spend Christmas with the family, Ethan is more than surprised and a bit reluctant. Once back home Toby keeps ditching him, supposedly to help out with the ceremony set-up and to give Ethan space to finish up work. When Ethan starts feeling neglected he imagines the worst, Toby is tired of him. But Toby has a Christmas surprise or two up his sleeve.
This was a cute little drama. Ethan, and his puppy dog eyes, were cute and then a bit “oh woe is me”. But I could totally relate. Your love of your life, who is so over the top anti marriage, drags you home for your sister to get to say “I do” not once but twice in one year. Talk about rubbing salt in the wound. But Toby totally redeemed himself by the end. This was a quick read so I didn’t get to know Toby as well as Ethan since this was entirely from Ethan’s point of view.
Sweet, quick book with a great surprise ending. Nice way to put you in the Christmas spirit.
