Audie Currell hates Christmas, which he’s always spent with his abusive family. But his boyfriend Calhoun drags him to the Culliver twins’ three-day Christmas blow-out at their beach house on Tybee, where “it looks like Macy’s holiday department has vomited its entire contents.” While the stockings are hung by the chimney with care, the hot tub bubbles, and the Goldschlager passes from hand to hand, Calhoun has to teach Audie that Christmas isn’t all bad — in a big way.
Full of hilarious moments, tenderness, and the touch of angst you’d expect from Audie, the novella “Learning to Love Christmas” will leave you with the warm holiday glow (literally) that’s the real reason for the season.
Low Country Lovers’ “Learning to Love Christmas” tells the story of the same party featured in Southern Seduction’s “The Meaning of Christmas” and Southern Scandal’s “Christmas Cousins” from a different perspective. Each novella can be read separately in the context of its series, or all three fit together to create a full picture of everything that happens at one party.
