It’ll take a miracle to set things right between Seth and Sandy. Good thing ’tis the season.
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.

This is a unique and fun Aussie holiday story. It’s pretty funny if a little strange.  There were times I wasn’t exactly sure what was going on but I wasn’t sure if it was the dialect or the story.  There was some some insta-love and costumes and a weird contest but it all ends on a happy note!

It wasn’t one of the better romances but it was interesting.

I give it 2.5 of 5 hearts
