Time for the Holidays: Dreamspinner Advent Calendar Story Mosquitoes and Mistletoe by Ren Holly


Dreamspinner Presents



After Andrew’s boyfriend dumps him just before Christmas, he decides to take a job far, far away from city life. It’s a dishwashing job on a remote island off the coast of Georgia. Expecting sunshine, palm trees, and some quality alone time, Andrew is surprised to find alligators, mosquitoes, rattlesnakes, and Garrett—a devilishly handsome naturalist. Andrew desperately tries to resist Garrett’s charm, because a twice-broken heart before Christmas is just not an option. Besides, Andrew’s new friend Anna might already have a thing for Garrett.
But where do Garrett’s interests lie, and will Andrew find out before he’s surprised by a visit from his ex?


What a cute story heartbreak to happiness. Lovely Christmas feel good story. It’s amusing the way poor Andrew get into so many situations Garrett has to rescue him from. They make a great pair. It seems that Garrett hasn’t questioned his sexuality before being attracted to Andrew, or at least not acted on it. There is a good cast of secondary characters who make the little island a family. All looking out for each other. This is the case when Andrew’s duplicitous ex turns up with his family, only for Garrett to get the wrong idea. Perfect short story giving me the meet, romance, misunderstanding and happy ending.
