Publisher's Summary

Since Hank Calder's four-year-old niece Josie came to live with him, his life has been plenty dramatic, thank you, and the last thing he needs is a swishy, flaming twinkie to complicate things. But when Justin, the daycare worker at his gym, offers to do something incredibly nice for Hank - and for Josie - Hank is forced to reconsider. Justin may be flamboyant in his speech and gestures, but his heart and kindness are as rock steady and dependable as anyone, even Hank, could ask for. Can Hank trust in his dramatic “turkey in the snow” to offer his heart the joy he and Josie have never known?
A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2012 Advent Calendar package “Evergreen”.

Wow!

Any additional comments?

Wow. How have I not read this before? I loved this!

Gomez Pugh does a terrific job with the narration of this sweet, and short, novella. A departure from Lane's usual modus operandi, this story has very little angst or sexy times. Not that I felt the lack.

I enjoyed this thoroughly from start to finish. Usually my big complaint with a novella is I want more, I want the story to be more fleshed out...not so with Turkey in the Snow. I thought it had a very satisfying ending.

Like I said before, Gomez Pugh was terrific, and I loved the narration.

Recommended!

Lovely holiday story

Some stories work better in audiobook than in print, and I think this is one of them. The main complaint of most readers seems to be the over-the-top language of Justin, but in audiobook form, he was positively charming. If sweet, family-centric love stories with a butch/fem pairing are your thing, than this is the audiobook for you!

This was an unusual Amy Lane for me. It has almost no sex content whatsoever, which is REALLY rare for this author, and it was pretty low angst. Apparently, this is Amy Lane: Holiday edition. And, I'll admit, I enjoyed it. It was an adorable, quick listen (nicely narrated by Gomez Pugh), and while it lacked a bit of relationship development and a lacked a lot of steam, it was a very satisfying novella.

If you are looking for a little something to put you in the holiday spirit, then you can't go wrong with this one.
