After losing his husband, David, to a tragic accident the previous year, Russ doesn’t feel much like celebrating the upcoming holidays. When his daughter unexpectedly asks for one of David’s cookie recipes, Russ makes a decision that lands him in a baking class. After a few mishaps with an inept partner, Russ is ready to give up, but then the teacher, Amos, offers private lessons to help him recreate David’s smorgasbord of holiday treats. Somewhere along the way, Russ develops an attraction to the younger man, but is he ready to move on and let Amos in?
First off, thank you to CL Mustafic for writing a bisexual character who faces all the stupid (insert appropriate swear word here) comments that bisexuals receive ALL THE FLAMING TIME. I have heard them all before. And thank you for writing a bisexual character whom I can relate to. You had me on board from the start. This book is heavier hitting than the title suggests, but it also keeps the Christmas feel to it. Russ and Amos have some learning to do as their relationship develops, but with family on board and a ton of Christmas cookies, I have good feelings for their future.
