Small-town magic, two heavy hearts—one unforgettable winter solstice
Cole Morrison left Jewel’s snow-covered fir trees ten years ago. But after a disastrous family Thanksgiving, Jewel seems like the only place left to go. When a run-in with a gorgeous stranger leaves him with debt to pay, Cole’s escape from his past turns out to be much more than a lonely Christmas vacation.
Jesse Carroway, the local Jewel witch, has been running his family’s successful, small-town Apothecary ever since his grandmother passed away. When Cole stumbles into his shop and accidentally wrecks a good portion of his inventory, Jesse does the only thing he can possibly think of—offers Cole a job and himself some help for the upcoming holiday rush.
Cole’s clumsy with candles and doesn’t trust easily, but soon Jesse gets a peek at the guy behind his bad-boy reputation. As the nights lengthen toward Yule, Jesse wonders if magic is to blame or if Cole might’ve fallen into his life for a reason…
I Received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review in conjunction with the book tour through Xpresso Book Tours.
There really wasn’t anything about this book that I didn’t love. If I could give it more than 5 Stars I really would have.
Both the main characters are absolutely amazing. Cole is really special if a bit ditzy and he really grows on you the more you read about him. Jesse is this really adorable witch who just climbs right into your heart and sticks there. The two of them have very quickly become my favourite gay fictional couple.
The author really is an amazing story teller, spinning this wonderful tale with amazing descriptions of the town, the little shop and all the characters revolving around our two main characters. Add in some Christmas and some magic and you have a lovely holiday romance. I also like how the non-binary and trans discussion is brought into the story line. It felt really natural while also being quite education.
A great read all in all.
