But the more David learns about him, the more intrigued he becomes. There’s something about the selfless, lonely older man that pulls David in, and what began as work becomes so much more.
This is a sweet story, it's a slow burn love story set (mostly) in the season of goodwill amongst men. In fact it is the goodwill bit that gets David and Jason talking properly, When David finally notices Jason and the good deeds he does he becomes, at first, intrigued then he starts to fall in love.
There was lots to enjoy about this story; the May/December romance, the warmth, goodness and generosity of Jason that spreads to David giving him a new purpose in his life, the backdrop of the city in winter.
This is a curl up on a cold day read. One for when some sweetness and goodwill are needed in a read instead of angst and heartache. Some of the subject matter is beyond sad, but the tone of the story is one of warmth and caring. It is a book to be enjoyed for its romantic storyline between two deserving characters. The front cover perfectly captures the feel of this story for me, an overall feeling of warmth and love.
A great little Christmas story, to be enjoyed anytime of the year - but especially in the greyness of late winter when the glitz and sparkle of the festive season seems so long ago.
