Duncan is an ocean from home over the holidays and expects to spend them alone. To his pleasant surprise, one of his European co-workers, Georg, befriends him and includes Duncan in the holiday traditions of his homeland: cutting a Christmas tree under starry skies at Georg’s country estate, decorating it at the family’s city home, and shopping at the Christmas market in Munich. Both men are lonely and realize they have much in common. But Georg’s life is in Germany and Duncan’s is in Boston. With the project they’re working on nearing completion, any chance for more than a holiday fling seems as elusive as stardust.

A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2014 Advent Calendar package "Celebrate!".

Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted the audio file of this book.

Duncan is halfway around the world, in Munich, on a job, at Christmas time. But it was his choice, so he shouldn't grumble, too much. A colleague drops in to see how he is doing, how the mirror is coming along and something sparks between Duncan and Georg. Something magical. But something with a rapidly approaching deadline.

My first and foremost thought after finishing this was, short and sweet and cute. I'm not normally one to read or listen to Christmas themed romances (especially in February!) and I must have missed the bit on the blurb 
that says the book was part of the Dreamspinner Press Advent Calendar 2014 but I really liked it!

Its single person POV, in the first, which while I don't much like to READ books written that way, I do much prefer to LISTEN to them. So although only Duncan gets a say, I was happy. No idea why its different for reading and listening, but it is.

It's also only short, 1 hour 50 minutes listening time or 66 pages reading. But sometimes you just need a short listen/read.

Andrew McFerrin narrates.

It's the first of his work I have listened to, and I have added him to my ever growing favourite narrator list. His reading voice is clear and even, and his voices are easily defined. I liked the voices he gave the characters, they fit, just right. Duncan's emotions came over in all the right places and all the right ways. I shall certainly listen to other work by this narrator.

Especially if it's a collaboration with Andrew Grey. Again, my first book by him. Won't be my last. Indeed, I'm currently half way through Love Comes Unheard, in audio but it's a different narrator. I would like to READ something longer by Grey, these two books are on the short side.

Summing up, short and sweet, not overly sexy, but it wasn't needed here, just what you need to wile away a couple of hours driving. 

4 stars for the book
4 for the narration
4 overall.
