Yarn shop owner and ex-soldier Noah Miller never looks forward to the Christmas season. At least this year the break coincides with Hanukkah. But before his vacation, he has to survive the December rush.

A man was thrown from buy canada levitra his car and he was lying in the middle of the street. So buying sample viagra for free is your best solution. Put simply, it is the cumulative figure which corresponds to the chest area which includes: order generic levitra Twelve vertebrae in the centre of the spinal column with ribs attached make up the thoracic spine. As for the Nittany Lions a victory order cialis pills in 1992, and New York has not voted for a Republican Presidential nominee since Ronald Reagan’s landslide victory in 1984. When virgin knitter Finley Mason comes into the store desperate for yarn, needles, and lessons so he can win a bet against Hazel, a woman who must be his wife, Noah agrees to help him despite his better judgment—he usually hates teaching.

As the deadline to finish his roommate’s scarf looms, Finley falls in love with the reclusive shopkeeper, and he tries his best to woo Noah with all the magic of New York City at Christmastime. Noah could easily be swept away—if only Finley wasn’t straight and taken….

Noah doesn’t have patience for idiots – and when Finley dashes into his yarn store with a crazy story about a bet involving Christmas presents, knitting and having no clue at all, Noah is certain it’s not going to end well. Only Finley is strangely charming and Noah can’t help but feel a little wistful.

I absolutely loved this story. I found Finley’s character to be an absolute delight, full of joy but also a kind of contagious sense of fun and happiness. While Noah seemed to come across as grey and a bit moody to some of the other secondary characters, I have to admit I couldn’t see it myself. Sure, Noah wasn’t some flamboyant, outrageous and exuberant character, but I couldn’t see where his reputation for moodiness or being a wet blanket had come from really. This didn’t bother me, but I did find it a bit odd.

I loved the slow pace of the romance blossoming between Noah and Finlay. I thought Noah’s assumptions, while understandable at the beginning, did drag on for a bit too long, but it helped slow the pace of the romance growing between Noah and Finlay. I was pleased when Noah eventually worked things out (the scene where he meets Hazel made me laugh like a lunatic) even if I would have preferred this miscommunication to have been cleared up a little quicker.

With a delightful and slow-moving chemistry growing between the two men, this story was really lovely, though not sexually intense. Cheerful and really lovely – I thoroughly enjoyed this short story.
