Jamie Goh’s life took a downturn when he lost his job, and a bad relationship left him disillusioned and afraid to trust again. But his friends and family want to see him happy, even if he’s turned off by the idea of dating. Following a Christmas disaster that proves the UK really can’t handle snow, Jamie discovers not everyone is out to hurt him—and loyalty means something to some people—when a sweet guy goes above and beyond for him.
A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2015 Advent Calendar package “Sleigh Ride”.
This was another amazing story in Dreamspinner’s Advent Calendar and by a new author for me (and she does have any other books out yet). I really hope to see more stories from this author because this story was an amazing, sweet and the characters were complex and lovable. There was also diversity in the story and it was great to see how other nationalities react to gays and their rights.
Amy Yip is an avid reader who finally decided to take the plunge and write down the stories of the characters that live inside of her head. She is one of those English people who prefers coffee to tea and never quite got on board with fish and chips in spite of living by the sea.
She has a soft spot for flawed characters that aren’t always extraordinary, but who make the best out of their lot, even though they stumble along the way. Those are the stories she wants to tell and the people she finds most fascinating.
When not writing, Amy can be found reluctantly working, running around with her dog, cooking up a storm, and trying her hardest to see as much of the world as she can.
