When one down-on-his-luck gardener and one garden centre owner meet, neither could predict the attraction they’d feel towards each other. Toby is just about turning round the business he’d inherited from his dad, and it’s all going well—until a risk he took looks like it might not pay off. Rhys’s employment at Toby’s garden centre is temporary, just to cover the Christmas sales, and frankly he’d much rather be outside gardening. And avoiding Christmas.
When an accident means Toby can’t be at work at a crucial time, it’s time for Rhys to step up to the mark. But can the Christmas Scrooge make the difference required for the man he’s starting to love?
For Want of a Christmas Miracle is a very short and sweet holiday novella by author Olley White. It is also the first book in her Holiday Hopes series. This is one of those books that you pick up when you want a sugary tale of love destined to put you in a happy and sappy frame of mind. Just the kind of book you want to devour in one sitting while drinking your favorite holiday drink.
After losing his job as a gardener, Rhys takes on a temporary position at a locally owned nursery. Rhys would much rather be working outdoors getting his hands dirty, but at least this new job will bring in some much needed cash. Toby is the owner of the garden centre and he’s working hard to turn the business around after taking it over from his father. The last thing both men expect is to be attracted to each other. When Rhys steps up and helps out Toby in his time of need, there is no stopping the sparks from flying, a sexy holiday romance soon flourishes between the two men.
This was a cute novella. There was something just so endearing about both Rhys and Toby that had me rooting for them. Definitely a feel-good read. All in all, this was a great holiday read perfect for when you are in the mood for a quick and cozy book that will put you in the Christmas spirit.
