Holiday: Needing A Little Christmas by Silvia Violet

Amazon Link


Discovering his boyfriend’s affair with a co-worker wrecks Eli’s holiday plans. With his parents on a cruise and his brother and sister out of town, he’s on his own. His mother insists he escape to her friend’s mountain cabin. Eli reluctantly agrees, but he takes off unprepared and ends up driving into the worst snowstorm the area has seen in years.
He survives the trip, but he’s stuck with no logs for the woodstove and little food. Fortunately, he gets the number for Mac’s Wood Delivery. Mac doesn’t mind riding to the rescue, and his deep, sultry voice has Eli eagerly anticipating the delivery. Is Mac the little bit of Christmas cheer Eli has been needing?



Short, cute holiday story. Eli decides to escape to a rural cabin from well-meaning relatives after a break-up. He’s woefully ill-equipped for rustic cabin life, but help come in the form of Mac, a local who runs a wood delivery service. The attraction is immediate when they talk on the phone, at least for Eli, but is mutual when they meet.
Both men fall pretty quickly, but it felt comfortable, warm and believable. Both men are at a place where there is no need for games – and I liked that.
For a quick holiday read, this hits the spot.
