A RIDDLE WRAPPED IN A MYSTERY
Nathan Gentael couldn’t bear to lose his family’s legacy, an old house on the tiny cove of Refuge Bay. He scraped together every penny he could find to buy back the derelict manse, and now he needs investors to help put it to rights so he can create a place for people like him: emotional wrecks in need of a safe place to get themselves together. Okay, he isn’t a wreck, but he has turned his back on his passion, and believes by helping others, he’ll help himself. When it seems no one is going to help, a new investor, Jake Reiden, who insists on being called Og, shows up early and inverts Nathan’s reality. Nathan has secrets, but this bull of a man who has more bravado than anyone Nathan has ever met, is harboring mysteries. Dark and closed off, Og is willing to risk investing in the house, but he has conditions, and it turns out one of them is he wants Nathan.
I actually read the Christmas story first. I absolutely loved reading how Nathan and Og came to be. Their story was amazing! Highly recommend, you won't be disappointed.

Never give up, never surrender!
Nathan, is truly a hot mess! But he knows it and wants to do better if not for himself, than for others. Og, is a piece of work. He's delightful, but still a piece of work. There are a lot of characters, a lot of hot messes. But they all work together. The story is a pretzel fitting into a maze. Lots going on. The author draws you in with your sheer like and enjoyment of the characters and hoping they work out well. Good story. Well done!
