DSP 2017 Advent Calendar: Stocking Stuffers ~ The Peppermint Schnapps Predicament by Clare London (Review)

Title: The Peppermint Schnapps Predicament

Author: Clare London
Category: Holiday, Contemporary
Pages: 39

Frankie Faraday is a promising young salesperson at Mason’s Emporium. Bill Mason is his boss, the son of the store’s founder, and the object of Frankie’s long-suffering, deeply devoted crush. Bill is steady and sober; Frankie is frivolous and flaky. Or so they seem to each other, until the night of the annual inventory, when they’re trapped together in the Seasonal Gifts storeroom, with nothing but candy and peppermint schnapps to sustain them until they’re rescued. And then the real truths—and something definitely more intimate—emerge!

4.5 Stars!!!

Frankie Faraday and Bill Mason couldn't be more different if they tried, or at least that's what they both think until they are locked together in a storeroom while doing inventory.

This book was nothing like I imagined it would be when I started reading and truly for a short book, it packed enough story that I was left satisfied that Bill and Frankie could actually make it in the long run. They were both so different from the personas they presented to others and it was nice that they were comfortable enough to share that part of themselves with each other and actually give the support they needed to make their dreams come true. 

Overall, it was a well-written, very entertaining and steamy Christmas short! Highly recommendable!
