Blurb:

Eddie Rodrigues doesn’t stay in one place long enough to get attached. The only time he broke that rule, things went south fast. Now he’s on the road again, with barely enough cash in his pocket to hop a bus south after his (sort-of-stolen) car breaks down in the middle of nowhere, Midwest, USA.

He’s fine. He’ll manage. Until he watches that girl get hit by a car and left to die.

Local shop owner Grayson Croft isn’t in the habit of doing people any favors. But even a recluse can’t avoid everyone in a town as small as Clear Lake. And when the cop who played Juliet to your Romeo in the high school play asks you to put up her key witness for the night, you say yes.

Now Gray’s got a grouchy glass artist stomping around his big, empty house, and it turns out that he . . . maybe . . . kind of . . . likes the company.

But Eddie Rodrigues never sticks around.

Unless a Christmas shop owner who hates the season can show an orphan what it means to have family for the holidays.

My View:

Glass Tidings is part of Riptides Holiday Charity Bundle and another great story. I loved the themes of finding home and letting someone love you.

Gray likes to think he is crotchety but he really has a big heart. I loved his way with Eddie, for the most part; He still had some grump in him and stuck his foot in it a time or two. I also liked Eddie and his bohemian ways. It was sad how he saw somethings, and he definitely had some self-esteem issues, but he was able to grow.

There were some good side characters and the description of the Christmas Shoppe was great. I was engaged with the story and I loved the happy ending.

If you are looking for a low angst (though not angst free) holiday read, I recommend this book.
