“A wise lover values not so much the gift of the lover as the love of the giver.” ― Thomas à Kempis
BLURB: Constable Mark Cordwell and Sergeant Bryn Powell deliver post, transport the children to school, and make sure the older inhabitants are safe in their quiet farming village deep in the Welsh countryside. It’s their first holiday together since Mark transferred from England, and Bryn and his neighbors are determined to let Mark know he’s welcome, with little traditions that mark the season. As Christmas and the Plygain service approach, Bryn has one more gift up his sleeve—and he knows it’s the one that will make their holidays perfect.
REVIEW: This short Advent story features Constable Mark Cordwell and Sergeant Bryn Powell. Mark is newly transferred in from England to a quaint Welsh town. I understand that the Welsh aren’t always overly accepting of the English, but this small Welsh town’s citizens are going out of their way to make Mark feel welcome. Bryn has also been explaining all the Welsh traditions to Mark and they are getting on well. Mark is adjusting and getting used to the much slower pace, but he still misses his family. His mom and sister are back in England and this will be his first year away from them.
Bryn has decided to organize an extra special holiday for Mark and he even has a special surprise waiting for him Christmas morning. Believe me, you won’t want to miss the “goose” incident. That had me laughing so hard there may have been tears. This is a very cute story full of older women, young kids, and a pair of officers who are just too hot for words. Make sure you check this one out, highly recommended.
