Reading this for a challenge over at Joyfully Jay - New to Me Author Week . I guess I cheated a bit because I chose novella instead of novel, since I'm not sure about my reading time these days.

I thought this was a sweet "Christmas on the beach" theme with a LOT of reference towards Christopher Isherwood (PS. the title refers to Christopher and His Kind, both Isherwood's memoir as well as a BBC TV Movie starring Matt Smith). I liked the age-gap angle. Have soft spot for that trope.

Christmas at the beach is not a much-used setting, but I liked the way this author pulled it off. Between Zane’s memories and dealing with the loss of his parents, Christopher’s youthful exuberance, and them being “stranded” in the neighboring Cape Cod cottages their families have owned, there is quite a lot happening. Mostly discussions and realizations rather than “action”, but if you’re looking for a quiet Christmas story this might just fit the bill.

Probably nearer to a 2.5* read for me - definitely one that moved up and down the scale! And one that maybe would have been better told in more pages.
I don’t mind age gaps, and nine years is plenty common enough to me to not be an issue.
Zane read from much older to much younger than his age but I quite liked his thoughts on his parents etc.
Christopher was perhaps a little more enigmatic at first but his interest was obvious.
I think when they finally got together it was the lack of build up (shor
