Bea's Thoughts:

This was a cute little short story about two divorced parents who meet via their daughters and are instantly attracted to each other. Misunderstandings rapidly ensue, which last more than halfway through the story. It's not my favorite trope but Netzel manages it well. All of the characters are enjoyable and the story moves along quickly. Too quickly for me, I didn't like how fast things went and I'd have liked the story better without the epilogue. The story doesn't actually occur in December; the outing where Eric and Marissa meet has a July in December theme. It's a cute story, no real conflict despite the misunderstandings but it's a short, sweet read that won't make your teeth ache.

I own this ebook.
