    One thought on “What Father Christmas Left(Celebrate! - 2014 Advent Calendar)”

    1. Father Christmas leaves a lot of different types of presents under trees each year, so to speak, but the one he has given to Jacob, an American living in London, and his partner of seven years, Errol, in this story is definitely one of the unusual gifts Jacob seeing is sister again for the first time in ten years is a very special occasion though, and since she made the decision to come and see him, it is also a very hope filled gesture At the same time, because of the emotional implications of [...]

    2. I was splitting my time between reading this and watching The Muppet Christmas Carol so my concentration while reading this was a bit shotbut it was a good story The dude s dad was a major douche though I mean, I have daddy issues up the wazoo, but at least he never tried to screw me over like this So, there s my bit of holiday cheer.

    3. This short story was a nice, sweet sibling reunion story, but I wouldn t classify it as a romance Yes, two of the three main characters were in a 7 year relationship, but that plotline wasn t really explored in that manner.Errol is out of town for a couple of days when Jacob s 15 year old half sister, Pru, from Boston shows up on his doorstep At his home in London Oops, I hopped an international flight and hope you don t mind style.Pru and Jacob s asshole father played his game of Who will she r [...]

    4. Reviewed for Prism Book Alliance I really liked this story The relationship wasn t the focus, but showing how they supported each other and how they spent their holidays brought warm feelings I liked Jacob s sister Pru and how she was welcomed The writing flowed well and I felt connected to the characters It was a very pleasant way to pass some time

    5. 3.5This was almost perfect for me.It was sweet but with a touch of drama I could get my teeth into, Christmassy, with a couple of guys I really liked Being a Britt I also loved the English side to this one So what was missing More of course Seriously the ending felt like the end of a chapter and I want the next part, please No scratch that I want the full long version story Any chance

    6. This novella is about two MC and a strong secondary Jacob has been living in London for years with his partner Errol He s been estranged from his father and his family for years But over the last couple of years reached out to his half sister, now fifteen, and they have been emailing back and forth Errol is a computer programmer and is always traveling, a couple of days before Christmas is still on the road and not due back until late that night When Jacob hears a knock he is surprised to see hi [...]

    7. 4 star review by RhondaThis is a short and sweet novelette, a quick read for a busy holiday season though it may make your busy holidays seem docile compared to what Jacob and his partner Errol face It simply isn t enough that Errol likes an over the top Christmas with all the bells and whistles but he drags everyone else into his insanity.Too bad that s not all they have to deal with A very unexpected visitor turns up on their doorstep in the form of Jacobs half sister whom he barely knows due [...]

    8. In a word Read the thing This is a fairly short Christmas fluff story about a reunion between a pair of siblings It s a story that s both sweet and sad in parts, along with some parts that will make you angry Although two of the three main characters are romantically involved, this is not a romance story It s strictly a story about two siblings, Jacob and Pru, reuniting after about 10 years and beginning to build an actual relationship with each other It s a simple story, though it isn t really [...]

    9. Different from other advent calendar short stories The relationship that takes center stage here is about a brother and a sister getting to know each other Teenage Pru arrives on Jacob s doorstep just before Christmas Eve her divorced parents have abandoned her at her closed boarding school for the holidays.I thought it was fun to explore another kind of relationship I felt like the two siblings are falling in love with each other too since they have a big age gap and haven t seen each other for [...]

    10. This was just an excellent story all the way around I loved all the characters and the fact that Jacob is an ace big brother Poor Pru God at least you have to take a test to drive a car but any idiot can have a kid These parents were piss poor excuses for parents I loved Errol trotting out his title and lawyer at the proper moment I loved all the UKness in this story Jacob and Errol s friends were a funny addition as well My only wish is that this could be longer I d love to read about this fam [...]

    11. One of the better offerings of Dreamspinner s this year s advent calendar It s a sweet reunion between brother and sister story but not a romance The main characters are Jacob and his sister Pru, Jacob s partner of 7 years, Errol, is only playing a minor role So three stars because finally a story has a Christmas theme but not because it s not a romance.

    12. A good story set around Christmas but, even though the MCs were in a long term relationship, this wasn t really a romance I would class it as a family story.

    13. I admit this wasn t a romance short story but one about family Given this is a holiday story that totally worked for me and I really enjoyed it.

    14. You can t help but feel for Pru, who has parents who do not deserve her Thank heaven for Jacob and Errol.

    15. Errol and Jacob sure get a surprise for Christmas There may be some bumps ahead but they seem to be pretty pleased with their gift.
