Jared’s been all over the world as a traveling manny with Holiday Helpers, and the itch to put down roots is 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 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?
A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2018 Advent Calendar "Warmest Wishes."

✩ ✩ ✩ ✩ 4-STAR ✩ REVIEW ✩ ✩ ✩ ✩ > > Judging a Book by its Cover > Looking Deeper Third-person Setting ~> Costa Rica Jared had been working as a Holiday Manny for several years now –travelling the world over while caring for his young charges –but, lately, had been wanting to find a place to call home and settle down. His latest assignment took him to Costa Rica for nearly a month, with a pair of twins. Wes was employed by an exclusive Costa Rican resort as a chef but also volunteered to assist guests with other activities, which led him to give the twins surf lessons. Wes and Jared hit it off immediately and soon the four of them were off on adventures and day trips, as the parents were almost completely absent. They worked together to keep Christmas traditions alive for the kids –not an easy task when living in the tropics! Soon enough, the stay-cation was drawing to an end when an opportunity presents itself. Was what they had together enough to take a leap of faith in a new direction? Read it today and find out! .
