It’s hard being the PA for the Holiday Spirit.
Julian is more dedicated than most, and knows the job inside and out. But that doesn’t mean he’ll still have a job when the new Holiday Spirit is elected. It also doesn’t mean he’s immune to the *cough* charms of the office, but that’s a whole other problem.
I’m a fan of this author and grabbed up her offer in Mischief Corner Book’s Holiday Collection ‘Escape from the Holidays’. What an absolute delight! Full of imagination, it opens into a scene of high suspense! In a North Pole conclave most similar to one where a new pope is being elected, all await the signal that indicates a new Holiday Spirit has been elected! Seems the old one made a hash of it during his reign (who gets penguins angry at them) and only his P.A. managed to maintain order and keep things running. That would be Julian who now anxiously awaits his new boss, and sees if he even has a job after the disaster of the last one.
In 32 pages, Cummings gives us detailed office politics, sparkling personalities, an hilarious and kinky married couple, the place of pheromones within the culture, world building, and the start of a wonderful romance. Honestly, I didn’t want it to end.
If I only had one thing to say, it would be to plead that we have a sequel, maybe next year to The Holiday Spirit, so we can check in on the office, assistance PA, married couple and maybe even the Boss and his PA? Pretty please with a candy cane on top?
Love your holiday stories? Be sure to add The Holiday Spirit by Carole Cummings for your holiday reading pleasure! I highly recommend it.
Cover art is magical and sort of perfect for the story involved. Love it.
