Publisher: Dreamspinner Press

Cover Artist: Catt Ford

Rating: 3.0 of 5 Stars


Seth Anderson thought he was a finalist in the Hot Jack cologne modeling contest for King’s Department Store, but Sandy King, upon reviewing Seth’s photo and resume, just wanted to jump him like a horny kangaroo. Seth quickly learns there is pain behind Sandy’s bravado and a sweet, lonely man behind the act. A holiday romance blossoms like the flowers on an Australian Christmas Bell. When Seth, used to a family dynamic without boundaries, oversteps by outing Sandy to his estranged grandmother, however, everything changes. Sandy is furious. He breaks things off with Seth and threatens to return to the US. As Christmas approaches, any chance at happily ever after seems as likely as a snowstorm in Sydney. It would take a miracle from above to set things right. Good thing ‘tis the season.

Teresa’s View:

Tidings of Comfort and Joey Down Under was a cute story with an interesting premise. I really liked Seth, but found Sandy odd in that his character felt wish-washy. The “I love you”s seemed premature, but it wasn’t insta love either. I enjoyed the quirky and eclectic secondary characters and the overall story but wasn’t wowed by it. It was a pleasant read.
