Two Christmases

Two Christmases is part of the Dreamspinner Press Mistletoe Madness collection. It is a short story about Danny Brigson, who makes a serious mistake when he sleeps with Marty, an old boyfriend, one Christmas. He tries to cover it up, but Marty tells all, and the love of Danny's life, Jake, throws him out.

Over the next year, Danny tries to sort his life out with the hopes that when the next Christmas comes around, Jake will give him the chance to put things right. 

Both the full anthology and individual stories are available for purchase.

"If you have the ability to enjoy a story where one person has done the wrong thing but sets about bettering themselves. And if you can understand why someone might just love a person enough to give them a second chance, then this is a nice Christmas short about the power of love and forgiveness. I think it's a great little Christmas read." (Read the rest of this review at On Top Down Under Reviews)

“This is my top pick of the week. A fantastic story with such sympathetic, flawed characters. I was engrossed right through this short story. Grade: Excellent.” [A review from the Well Read Bookblog on 14 December 2009]
