Ghostwriter of Christmas Past by TA Moore – Stocking Stuffers

Ever since ghostwriter Jason Burke ended up in loco parentis for his orphaned niece, Mallory, he’s been trying. He goes to parent/teacher events, and he makes packed lunches, so he definitely didn’t mean to forget about Christmas. He just hasn’t celebrated it since he left home under a cloud years ago.

Put on the spot, Jason makes the snap decision to take Mallory to see where he and her father spent their Christmases as kids. The last thing he expects is to run into Tommy, his ex—ex-best friend, ex-boyfriend—who is still living in town in town… and working as a sheriff’s deputy.

It’s hard to avoid someone in a small town—and maybe Jason doesn’t want to. He got Mallory a Christmas, and maybe now it’s time to get himself a Christmas boyfriend. But first, he owes Tommy some explanations.

Jason is trying to raise his niece, Mallory. He knows that nothing he does will bring her parents back, but he knows that she needs to have some normalcy. When he realizes that he’s forgotten the holiday, he panics a little and decides to take her back to where he and her father spent their holidays.

While they are driving to his hometown, he runs off the road and his ex-boyfriend, Tommy, comes to their rescue. Tommy is now the town sheriff and despite his reservations about Jason, he sees him in need of help and knows he can’t just walk away.

Mallory is somewhat surly, but she’s still grieving. You can’t help but laugh at some of her antics. She knows that her uncle is trying hard to give her a good holiday and she is appreciative, just not to his face.

Tommy is glad to see Jason again, but is still wary since they left on not such great terms. Jason is seeing now, leaving might have been good, but he also realizes what and who he left behind. There isn't too much romance in this story, but it's more friends finding each other again and seeing where it goes.

This was a sweet story about finding the holiday spirit, love, and acceptance. Each character has to find a new normal for them and then decide whether or not they will let others in.

TA MOORE genuinely believed that she was a Cabbage Patch Kid when she was a small child. This was the start of a lifelong attachment to the weird and fantastic. These days she lives in a market town on the Northern Irish coast and her friends have a rule that she can only send them three weird and disturbing links a month (although she still holds that a DIY penis bifurcation guide is interesting, not disturbing). She believes that adding ‘in space!’ to anything makes it at least 40% cooler, will try to pet pretty much any animal she meets (this includes snakes, excludes bugs), and once lied to her friend that she had climbed all the way up to Tintagel Castle in Cornwall, when actually she’d only gotten to the beach, realized it was really high, and chickened out.

She aspires to being a cynical misanthrope, but is unfortunately held back by a sunny disposition and an inability to be mean to strangers. If TA Moore is mean to you, that means you’re friends now.
