Thank you to Bold Strokes Books/ NetGalley for a copy of Felix Navidad in exchange for an honest review.
Felix doesn’t do impulsive anymore. But attending a friend’s wedding reminds Felix he’s the only one of his friends attending solo, and recent losses have him thinking he’s swung too far in the not-impulsive direction.
So, impulse decision number one? Cutting in on a dance with handsome farmer Kevin, the ex of one of the grooms, for a spin at the reception. Impulse decision number two? Planning his first holiday vacation off work. Christmas in Hawai’i will be a gift to himself.
When dancing doesn’t work out, Felix keeps high hopes for his vacation right up until the first flight cancellation. After bumping into a stranded Kevin, who lost his flight home, Felix gives impulse a third try: Why not drive to Toronto together?
But after ice rain strands them halfway, it looks like Felix isn’t going to get to give himself his gift after all. Instead, this Christmas is a small cabin — and Kevin.
Then again, sometimes unexpected gifts turn out to be the best. — From the publisher

Horrible holiday nicknames
I feel for Felix; I really do: We share a joint pain. While his patient/friend lovingly bestows the moniker “Felix Navidad” upon him, I was given the nickname “Melis Navidad” as a form of bullying. Thankfully, I can listen to the holiday classic.
