Author Name & Publisher: Avon Gale
Publication Date & Length: November 30th 2015- 37 pages


Andrew Starling thought when he sold his medical database software to a national corporation, it would finally give him and his wife the financial security needed to build their dream home in the exclusive, wealthy community of Ponte Vedra, Florida. But Andrew’s wife leaves him for another man before the ink dries on the contract, leaving Andrew to enjoy the fruits of his labors—and their sprawling, oceanfront home—all alone. Despite being convinced he has nothing much to celebrate, Andrew goes to the Ponte Vedra Inn and Club’s annual New Year’s Eve party… and meets Elias Rivas, the young, good-looking server who’s always had his eye on Andrew. It might be the new beginning Andrew didn’t even know he needed.

A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2015 Advent Calendar package “Sleigh Ride”.

This is the second book I’ve read by Avon Gale and this story was great. This was a holiday story about New Year’s Eve (which you don’t find many of) and I really enjoyed it.  I love the duo POV type story which you don’t really get very often. Needless to say I’ve wanted to read her book Breakaway, but I had a lot of book reviews due this month and could not find the time but I’m definitely going to buy it soon. This author had quickly become a “must buy” for me. This was an excellent job in just 37 pages.

Avon Gale was once the mayor on Foursquare of Jazzercise and Lollicup, which should tell you all you need to know about her as a person. She likes road trips, rock concerts, drinking Kentucky bourbon and yelling at hockey. She’s a displaced southerner living in a liberal midwestern college town, and she never gets tired of people and their stories — either real or the ones she makes up in her head.
