Dinner is overcooked. The guests haven’t arrived.
Luke is sitting alone at his dining table on New Year’s Eve. He was hoping to romance Nathan, one of the people he invited for this intimate evening meal.
As midnight draws closer, it seems an angel, who has magically appeared in Luke’s apartment, is the only person to drink champagne and watch the fireworks with.
But this angel has other ideas. He’s about to grant Luke the New Year’s Eve party he thought he wanted.
This was a different story and it’s so short I’m afraid to give everything away. I understood the point of what the angel did but didn’t like the execution and mostly just felt for Luke as he was being blindsided.
In the end we get to see Luke find the love he wants just not in the way he had originally hoped. Unfortunately I didn’t feel a big connection to any of the characters but felt as if I was watching from the sidelines.
I like the cover art by Natasha Snow is cute and one of the standard for holiday shorts this year.
