HOLIDAY BOOK REVIEW BLITZ DAY 27: NICOLAS!!
OH MY GOODNESS DO I HAVE A STUNNING BOOK FOR YOU GUYS TODAY! NICOLAS BY DIANNE HARTSOCK IS NOT YOUR TYPICAL CHRISTMAS BOOK, BUT BOY WILL YOU BE GLAD YOU READ IT! I HAVE MY REVIEW AND LINKS BELOW: LET'S TAKE A LOOK:
IF THIS ISN'T THE PERFECT QUOTE FOR THIS BOOK I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS!! HERE IS MY REVIEW:
Nicolas by: Dianne Hartsock
reviewed by: Becky
Betrayed by a lover, Jamie rents an isolated cabin on Lake Huron, wanting only to be left alone. Instead, he is pulled from his solitary existence as an artist and tumbles headlong into the legend of Saint Nicolas.
As a young man, Nicolas accidentally killed a man intent on murdering three children, only to have the man's malicious spirit rise up against him. Fleeing through the centuries from the Krampus, the evil troll-like creature that dogs his steps, Nico finds refuge with the young artist who takes him into his home and bed. But Jamie has questions. Who is Nicolas, and why does the Krampus want to destroy him?
When the Krampus begins to torment and torture anyone Nico comes in contact with to punish him, Jamie’s life is put in danger. And Jamie isn’t sure whether he can help Nico defeat his nemesis or if he’s merely a pawn in the Krampus’s game.
This book is amazing! You get a glimpse into legends of old and the characters are so well written they leap off the page! You will be riveted from cover to cover!
Jamie's ex lover made him feel like he was worthless and would never be good enough to find love, much like his parents did, so he has been in isolation at a cabin with his art, and he was making out pretty well, until the bell on the dock chimed one night.
Jamie finds a beautiful man half frozen and sick on the dock and he doesn't know it, but once he lets Nico into his life and his heart things will never be the same!
The attraction between Jamie and Nico is instant and the chemistry is wonderful between these two, but Nico has secrets and enemies, and to keep Jamie safe he mustn't get involved with him.
The attraction is too great though, can Nico keep Jamie and even himself safe from the darkness that hunts him? Will Nico make the ultimate sacrifice for the beautiful man he has come to love so much?
You guys gotta read this book, it is wonderful with surprises and twists at every turn! I won't do spoilers but I will say, read it, you will be very glad you did! Thanks Dianne, for this new and different take on a Christmas story!
