Couples counselor Ted Freeman is still reeling six months after his partner left him. He desperately hopes a week of peace and quiet at a quaint mountain cabin will be just what he needs to regain his personal and professional confidence.
Neil Kelly is a computer programmer who just got promoted to full time and is celebrating over Christmas by going on his first real grown-up vacation at the Cabins in the Pines Inn. When he runs into Ted, his longtime crush, Neil can’t believe his luck, and he vows to do whatever it takes to make Ted see him as something other than the dork next door.
Neil wasn’t part of Ted’s plan for the holidays, but he might turn out to be exactly what Ted needs.
In Rowan McAllister’s Green the Whole Year ‘Round two neighbors travel hundreds of miles for snow and to meet each other. Okay, neither of them expected the latter to happen and technically they already “knew” each other, but they had never actually connected.
Green is another sweet holiday novella from Dreamspinner. If you are a sucker for Christmas tales of love the way I am, I can’t recommend it enough. If I put on my literary hat, I could probably pick apart a plot issue or two, but that isn’t what this review is about.
Neil and Ted are very different people, but complement each other well. Neil is an overzealous puppy, and Ted is straight-laced and a bit arrogant. However, he softens as the story progresses, mostly because of Neil. He unintentionally bruises Neil’s heart a time or two, but eventually they work things out and have a nice holiday.
This story is the start of their relationship. They aren’t riding off into the sunset after a few days together, but I like them enough that I would love to revisit them next Christmas.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
