Each Christmas has marked a milestone in Bobby and Paolo’s love story. But will this year be their last noel?
It’s no surprise Bobby isn’t feeling much holiday spirit—not when he suspects his husband, Paolo, might be interested in his new business associate, the incredibly handsome Noel. On top of that, Bobby’s father is hanging up his Santa suit at the department store due to health issues; and worst of all, Geoffrey’s birth mother, funded by anti gay extremists, is threatening their family. She’s trying to take away Bobby and Paolo’s adopted son, but she’ll have to face their supportive friends, family, and pastor before she can tear Geoffrey from the only real home he’s ever known.
With so many challenges in their path, the December grooms will need an extra helping of holiday magic this year. Rumor has it Santa’s on his way to spread some holiday cheer.
The First Noel by Joe Cosentino is a book that captures my interest from the beginning. In this tale, Bobby is juggling a lot of new challenges. Anti-gay extremists, his son being taken away, and his husband’s interest in another man. The intensity of the situations were felt. I was feeling my sympathy growing towards Bobby and his son. All I wanted for Bobby, was for him to have a good Christmas. The other cast of characters such as Bobby’s mom and dad made this funny, sweet, and entertaining. There was never a boring moment in this book. Overall, Joe Cosentino, knows how to grab my attention and keep, as well as melting my heart in the process.
