Blurb: Sometimes the right gift can be life-changing….

On the solstice, Rory’s grandfather gives him a pocket watch that he claims will have Rory’s life sorted and his problems solved by Christmas. Rory starts out skeptical, but when he reconnects with an ex he never thought he’d see again, he has to admit there might be some holiday magic working after all.

Deacon’s life is in shambles, and he’s returned to Syracuse for a fresh start. Running into Rory again feels like much more than a coincidence, and neither of them can deny the passion between them is still smoldering. With the watch behaving oddly at just the right moments, Rory and Deacon might receive the gift of a lifetime—if they’re willing to accept it.

Review: Rory’s grandfather is a very sweet old man. He has decided that Rory needs to start a family. He wants Rory to find the man of his dreams. Rory’s grandfather gave him an old pocket watch that would help him get his life settled. So when his ex shows up, well things heat up. Deacon has lost quite a bit in his life and has came home to start over. When he ran into Rory things look up for him. Gramps is going to get a big head.

This is a sad little story but it has a great ending. I love his grandfather and his way of helping. Although I still have no clue what they were celebrating, it seemed like a lot of fun. I enjoyed reading it although I will admit that it comes off a bit slow paced to me.

It was still fun and I would definitely recommend it.
