    1. Vio brought this to my timeline and Tailtiu gave a stamp of approval. I never read anything by Libby Drew before, so a free short story is a good way to 'try the sample'. And I loved it!The description of snow is beautifully written -- I can imagine the foot deep snow and the cold wind. So gorgeous. Then there are the main characters, Jamie and John. Ms. Drew doesn't completely tell us what has happened to Jamie, she lets the readers imagine and make our own conclusion. Because of that I become [...]


    2. I'm giving this a five, mostly for the fact this left me with a yearning sense of wanting to know more. I want the full story of these guys. I loved the quiet pace of the story, the setting, the chemistry between the MCs, the insta-family, the fairy-tale too-good-to-be-true quality, pretty much everything.The writing isn't perfect but it's streets above most m/m I've been reading recently.A highly recommended short free read.


    3. I've gotta be honest with all of you I felt like this story needed another hundred pages or so. About 10% of the reason I feel this way is because while the ending felt good, it wasn't quite as satisfying as it could have been. To put it in holiday terms, it was a present under your tree on Christmas morning (admittedly pretty great), but it wasn't the one thing you were truly dying for. What's the other 90% of the reason I wanted 100 more pages? Read the story. You'll understand.


    4. 4.40 starsThanks to Tailtiu for the gentle push, and to think I would have missed out on reading this wonderful free story, it's a gorgeous romance. Imaginative writing and the set up is left for us as readers to decide whether the relationship will move forward. I am very hopeful for the adorable Jamie and John, the snow is another beautiful addition to this dreamy and lovely read. I liked it a lot, highly recommended.


    5. A very vivid picture of winter and snow and cold A sad and maybe a little hopeful story, it ended far too soon for me, but I'm hoping that Jamie might have found a home where he can belong.


    6. This is a fine, even if to short, story. We can't really talk about romance here, but it could be on in the future, for both John and Jamie. Jamie had a harsh, hard young life, we can see that he is a drifter. On his path he comes across sign "Echo Valley Tree Farm is hiring staff for seasonal work. To get a warm meal and possible a job, Jamie decides to try it out. This story is definitely to short. I wouldn't mind reading a longer story.





    7. A nice short story, but things moved a bit too quickly for me. I felt for Jamie, but I would have liked to know just a bit more about his past. I don't need to know everything, but a little something more would have made it easier for me to connect with him, and understand his feelings towards John, and his fears. John was a mite too controlling for me, and I didn't appreciate some of the ways he pressed, and pressured Jamie. Nothing sexual, and nothing mean just a bit much for me especially con [...]
