This was a cute story that deals with friends Christian and Remy. I loved being able to see the turmoil in Remy over how Chris was distancing himself, finding out exactly why Chris was being distant and then seeing how Remy tries to break through the barriers Chris puts up. I loved the idea around the Southern Winterland and how Chris keeps it going in honor of his Grandma Violet's holiday tradition. I enjoyed this one very much and my only complaint is that it's too short. I can't wait to see more of Remy and Chris in the By Degrees series but I'm especially looking forward to reading their book!
