The Christmas Pundit by V.L. Locey Release Blitz

The Christmas Pundit by V.L. Locey. Laurel Holidays #2.

Will two complete opposites learn to cross party lines to benefit their beloved hometown and save Christmas?

Evan Griffiths is enjoying his tenure as the mayor of Cedarburg, Pennsylvania. While it may barely be a blip on the state map, it’s where he grew up, and he’s thrilled to be at the helm of the tiny rural community. With the recent election in the past, Evan can focus on his agenda to bring Cedarburg out of the fifties. Being the first gay mayor in the town’s history is a good start but there’s plenty more to do. His first big job is expanding the yearly Christmas Carnival to lure tourists to his fiscally challenged birthplace. Things seem to be moving along at a good pace then a ghost from Christmases past arrives on the morning bus.

As soon as Gideon Pierce returns to Cedarburg he picks up right where he left off back in elementary school—tormenting Evan at every turn. Only this time instead of shoving Evan down on the playground, Gideon is bedeviling him with snippy editorials in the local paper. Gideon is no longer the gangly, bucktoothed kid he used to be. When his gaze keeps touching on Gideon’s mouth and the appreciative fire in his brilliant holly green eyes, Evan is finding it harder and harder to keep his mind on witty replies to Gideon’s cutting viewpoints.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is the second book in the series – which is set in rural Pennsylvania – but there are no strong links, so you can happily read this as a standalone too. And I would definitely recommend that you do!

Gideon Pierce left town under cover of darkness as a child with his mother. He had an abusive father, from whom they were fleeing. He is now back in town, and makes an amazing admission to the now Mayor Evan. At school, Evan was subjected to constant bullying from Gideon, so he finds the new situation very unnerving.

Such a lovely story of redemption, of growing away from the ugliness of one's childhood, and of being true to the feelings which overpowered a vulnerable child. There are some beautiful twists which come from Evan's parents, and such a great feeling of a place that is really small town, and yet accepting and open to change.

I loved some of the crazy fundraising methods, the description of the Christmas market, and of course, a hot and sexy romance. A very satisfying story all round.
