Summary

Christmas on Catalina Island - it's just what the doctor ordered.

Injured in the line of duty, FBI special agent Shane Donovan is longing for a few days of peace and quiet. Some nice meals, a couple of good books, and maybe a bottle of the best. No family, no friends, no fa la la la la...just a little time on his own to think things through.

But an offshore storm, a geriatric treasure hunter, and the guy who dumped him without a word two years earlier are about to unwrap all Shane's carefully laid holiday plans.

Not bad

Any additional comments?

Josh Lanyon knows how to tell great angst-filled, forgive and forget, love stories. This is just another shinning example of that. Loved the characters, of course family has to be annoying as usual but love was there.

Love

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Although it wasn't a typical mystery, it was a fun one none the less.
A very sweet and funny story about taking chances and not missing an opportunity you might regret. 👍🏻👍🏻

A Sweet Tale of Misgivings...

What a sweet little story. Shane & Linus...perceptions and misgivings of one's thoughts of what was in the past and how quickly it reignited in the present...a sweet Christmas tale...

Lovely short story.

As with all Josh Lanyon stories, I enjoyed getting to know the characters, and enjoying a little mystery thrown in for good measure.

Sweet, but not very satisfying

It felt like there was another story to be told in this one. One that may have been even more interesting than the one that was told, or that would have added some depth to this one. All in all, it was inoffensive and the reunion was sweet. Not a complete waste of time, but should probably have been developed more.

Holiday Mishaps

A second chance story. I love the way that these two have to sort things out. There is also enough humor to make this a great holiday story.

short and unimpressive

Nothing really happens. Guy meets guy, guy falls in love. guy looses guy, guy finds guy again and falls in love. Ok, but not wow or even ehh.

A mediocre trifle

josh has written many good pieces, however this one is mediocre by comparison. Yes it is a cute Christmas trifle, but with almost no substance. Even its hinted at mystery was simply thrown away. it isn't worth one credit.
