review 2: 4.5 stars rounded up to 5.0Paralegal Seth Bellski has been secretly dating his boss, Lars Varga, founding partner of Finch & Varga Law, for the past year. Seth is out but Lars is not. Seth loves Lars but is tired of the secrecy (Lars even has a beard GF!). Seth begs Lars to spend Hanukkah
... morewith Seth's family at their kosher B&B in Whistler but when Lars refuses, it's one more disappointment in a string of disappointments and the final straw for Seth. Realizing that Lars will never come out of the closet, Seth calls it quits on their relationship and takes off for the B&B. What he finds, however, is that his aunt and uncle are missing and seven demanding, peculiar, and danger-prone guests have arrived. Seth struggles to run the B&B until his aunt and uncle show up but it's difficult since he has zero culinary skills. Much to his dismay, Lars shows up, begging forgiveness. Between having to placate the demanding and accident prone guests and worrying over Seth's missing aunt and uncle, Seth and Lars miraculously find each other and manage to heal their broken relationship.I truly loved this story. It was angst-ridden and painful at times. The dichotomy between the closeted Lars and the out-and-proud Seth made the characters believable. I really liked both MCs. Despite the pain and heartache of their situation, neither gave up and I cheered them for their hard-won HEA. True to form, Astrid Amara's secondary characters were a welcome addition to the story. This book had its moments, both happy and sad. The reason behind the aunt and uncle's disappearance was a little irritating but did not diminish my overall enjoyment of the story.Bottom line: an angsty but sweet and satisfying read about healing and hope in the Hanukkah season. Recommend! less
