A Review of Puppy, Car and Snow by Amy Lane

The relationship between Ryan and Scott was so solid and real that I fell in love with them immediately. Amy Lane also portrayed the stresses that the holidays put on couples in such a funny and realistic manner that I could relate to all the family situations that Scott and Ryan encountered. Ryan’s mother dearest is the reason that there are so many letters to Ask Amy and Carolyn Hax at this time of the year. Awful and so based upon dragon mothers out there (you know who you are) that I was sending thanks that I only knew people like then but they were not actually part of my family.kl And yet Ryan’s commitment to Scott is deep and sees them through. A wonderful heart warming story for any time of the year, but especially great at Christmas.

I missed the first 2 Ryan and Scott stories and will now have to track them down. I loved this story and actually don’t feel that I missed anything by not reading the first two. So I am hoping that the first 2 just fill in some blanks. I also loved their poodle monster, Blitzkrieg. So true love, snow, dog and Christmas. What’s not to love, especially in the hands of Amy Lane.

Here is the blurb from Dreamspinner Press:

Ryan’s entire life changed the night Scott surprised him in a bathroom at a party. Now Ryan’s soulless climb up the corporate ladder has stalled—but his quality life has become a whirlwind of laughter, joy and surprises, thanks to Scotty’s playful, gentle heart.

After three years together, they’re going to Ryan’s parents’ cabin to spend Christmas. Snowed in by the weather and locked under the icy glare of his mother’s disapproval, can Ryan show he has found the most profound happiness in the simplest of things?

By Scattered Thoughts

At over 50, I am ruled by my terriers, my gardens, and my projects. A knack for grubbing about in the woods, making mud pies, and tending to the injured worms, bugs, and occasional bird and turtle growing up eventually led me to working for the Parks. I was a park Naturalist for over 20 years, and observing Nature and her cycles still occupy my hours. From the arrival of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in the Spring to the first call of the Snow Geese heading south in the Fall, I am entranced by the seasons. For more about me see my bio on my blog.
