Blurb: Fifty-six-year-old Samuel Phillips is all alone on his small farm in the Ozarks, with nothing but a menagerie of chickens, pheasants, turkeys, and other birds as company—which is just the way he likes it. In fact, if Samuel had his way, he’d tear down his neighbor’s house so his solitude could be absolute. One day Faloola, his favorite turkey, escapes, forcing Samuel to make the trek next door. When Raymond Webber—sixty-seven—answers the door as naked as the day he was born, Samuel doesn’t know whether he’s more annoyed… or attracted. The two men are opposites in every way—Samuel is serious, while Raymond believes in free love and herbal relaxation. The weeks leading up to Christmas are rocky to say the least, but some holiday spirit might help them get past their differences….

Review: Samuel is living his life the way he wanted, even if he was alone. He lived in the beautiful Ozarks with his amazing birds. Except now he was out in the cold searching for his favorite turkey. She did love to wander. To bad she ended up at his neighbor’s house. Raymond is a man who is just a bit older than Samuel, but he had never settled down. That is until his uncle passed away and left him his house. These two are perfect for each other, weird all the way around.
I was expecting a Christmas story when I was given this but it was still pretty cool. Although the grumpy old man side does come out with these two. Thanksgiving day and turkeys aside, it was a pretty good book. Although the cover was a bit dull, the story was entertaining.
I enjoyed reading it and it makes good for when you need a quick read.
