TITLE: The Peppermint Schnapps Predicament
SERIES: 2017 Advent Calendar Daily – Stocking Stuffers
AUTHOR: Clare London
PUBLISHER: Dreamspinner Press
LENGTH: 39 pages
RELEASE DATE: December 2017
Frankie Faraday is a promising young salesperson at Mason’s Emporium. Bill Mason is his boss, the son of the store’s founder, and the object of Frankie’s long-suffering, deeply devoted crush. Bill is steady and sober; Frankie is frivolous and flaky. Or so they seem to each other, until the night of the annual inventory, when they’re trapped together in the Seasonal Gifts storeroom, with nothing but candy and peppermint schnapps to sustain them until they’re rescued. And then the real truths—and something definitely more intimate—emerge!
Ahh! What a cute little story!
Frankie the flake, and Bill the boss, get locked in a storeroom in the dark! They eat chocolates, drink schnapps, have a couple of panic attacks, make out by Christmas lights, and fall in luuuuuv. And I loved this story! Frankie was so sweet and goofy, Bill was stern and quiet, but when they finally realize they share a mutual attraction, the sparks fly!
This is short and sweet, just a moment in time with these two stuck in a dark room together. Then there is a little follow-up, showing their happy ending. Clare did a great job with this one, she didn’t try to cram a bunch of back story in, no drama, nothing extra. She gave us enough to get pulled in, and get to know the characters, but it didn’t feel rushed at all. Snappy dialog, a little sex, and a happy ending. Just what we need!
This is the first advent story I’ve read this year, and we are off to a good start!
Give this holiday story a try, it is super cute!
