I’m reviewing Two Ruined Christmas Eves by Chris McHart as part of her blog tour with Embrace the Rainbow Book Promotions. For more information – and details about the rafflecopter giveaway – check out my LJ post.
Fritz has to accompany his grandparents to the biggest folk music event in southern Germany, the worst punishment for a metal fan, especially on Christmas Eve.
When these two men meet at the concert after-party, sparks fly. Will this Christmas Eve be something special after all?
I love Christmas stories, and not just at Christmas. Throw in a music theme and I’m very happy.
Two Ruined Christmas Eves hit the spot for everything I look for in a Christmas story. Although it’s a very short story—38 pages on my tablet—its length doesn’t detract from it at all. It’s a sweet, sexy story about two opposites who met at a folk music festival in Germany. I loved how Fritz—a metal fan at a folk festival with his grandparents—has no idea who Jonas is. Fritz’s grandmother’s reaction is wonderful, and I really liked the supporting characters in this story too. The descriptions make the settings very easy to visualise, and I found myself caught up in the story very quickly, reading it in one sitting. One thing I really appreciated with the epilogue set a year later is that both Fritz and Jonas are still their own people. Neither has changed who they are to please the person they’re with.
I’d recommend Two Ruined Christmas Eves to readers who enjoy a sweet and sexy feel good Christmas story with a good sized dash of music as part of the plot. 5 out of 5 stars.
