Christmas is Harry’s favourite time of the year, but it looks like he’ll be spending it alone. When it comes to the men he fancies, his luck is non-existent. Harry’s nerves always get the better of him—especially when he tries to talk to Andrew, the hot guy downstairs.

Everything changes when Harry meets a mysterious girl in the woods who professes to be a witch. He dismisses her claims, but when odd things start happening to him, he has to reconsider.

Andrew was attracted to Harry from the start, but their awkward encounters put him off. All goes well until Harry opens his mouth—and ruins it with his stupidity and silly comments. When Harry suddenly becomes more relaxed and they have a proper conversation, Andrew realises his first impression was wrong. As the days count down to December 25, they get swept up in the Christmas spirit and their relationship moves faster than either expected.

A little winter magic might have been the push they needed, but Harry worries that when it wears off, he’ll no longer be the man Andrew wants.

My View:

I thought this story was very cute and totally Christmas-y. It started out with a bang that pulled me in and piqued my interest. The bit of magic was just perfect to keep me wanting more because I loved the snarky interference. But even more, I like that the magic was only a small part of the story and that it simply started things off and then only popped up when absolutely necessary. It was just enough to make the quick turn from strangers to in love easier to accept and enjoy.

I loved the happy feel to this tale. There was sarcasm, meddling friends, a bit of jealousy, and a whole lot of love. This story worked for me and was a great way to get into the Christmas spirit.
