Holidays Are Where Your Heart Is by Bru Baker – Warmest Wishes

Jared’s been all over the world as a traveling manny with Holiday Helpers, and the itch to put down roots is starting to eclipse his wanderlust—especially since his current family is a handful.

After culinary school, Wes did some wandering of his own, exploring Central America before settling as a resort chef in his mother’s homeland of Costa Rica, a place he loves and where he plans to stay. If he’s learned one thing, it’s to be wary of flings with vacationers. Still, he can’t stand to watch two little Swiss kids lose their belief in Saint Nicholas, so he’ll lend a hand to the manny assisting the family. It won’t be easy to recreate a traditional European Christmas in a tropical paradise.

Between a snowball fight on a sunny beach and sledding down an active volcano, Jared and Wes discover some renewed holiday magic of their own. Can they make it last a lifetime?

My only complaint about Holidays Are Where Your Heart Is, is that I wasn’t ready for it to end. This is an adorable meet-cute that would make the perfect prequel novella for Wes and Jared’s fledgling romance as they take the next step in their relationship. To be honest, I wasn’t expecting to warm up to the kids based on the opening scene, but as they settled into a routine with Jared and were on solid ground, it was easy to see why Jared enjoyed spending time with them. That they gave him an excuse to get to know Wes, their surfing instructor, better was an unexpected bonus that kept on giving because it quickly became apparent that the attraction was mutual. As much as I snickered at the volcano sledding scene and grinned as the guys stuffed the kids’ shoes with cookies, my heart totally melted at the conversation between Jared and the kids at the very end of the story… until I turned the page and discovered it was over. But seriously, this was a lovely little Christmas tale that left me wanting more.

Real, relatable romance.
