Since Hank Calder’s four-year-old niece, Josie, came to live with him, his life has been plenty dramatic, thank you, and the last thing he needs is a swishy, flaming twinkie to complicate things. But when Justin, the daycare worker at his gym, offers to do something incredibly nice for Hank—and for Josie—Hank is forced to reconsider. Justin may be flamboyant in his speech and gestures, but his heart and kindness are as rock steady and dependable as anyone, even Hank, could ask for. Can Hank trust in his dramatic “turkey in the snow” to offer his heart the joy he and Josie have never known?
My View – Story:
Amy Lane is hit and miss for me. While not a complete miss, Turkey in the Snow is also not a hit for me. To use a favorite phrase of mine, it is what it is. What it is is a sweet tale of opposites attracting and forming a family. All set around Christmas, of course. I would have liked a little more depth to these characters. As it stands, they seemed more caricature than character.
I didn’t like Justin much, but I liked him more than Hank. I didn’t understand either of their motivations or why they wanted the other. The entire “turkey” reference didn’t translate well for me. However, at the end of the story, I was not asking for my time back. I enjoyed it for what it was.
My View – Narration:
Gomez Pugh is another new narrator for me. I don’t have a lot to say about his performance one way, or another. I guess that is a good thing as he did not hinder the telling of the story.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
