A Chicago art director in his early thirties returns to his tiny Upstate New York hometown to spend the holiday with his recently widowed father only to find himself involved with his boyhood crush, now a closeted sheriff’s deputy. It’s sentimental and sexy, with a bit of mystery stirred in.
From Rainbow Reviews, “The Christmas Visit is a compelling, strongly-written, realistic short story of love lost and found. Beautifully woven, the mystery of Travis’ marriage plus the long-held attractions make for a story that will keep readers riveted, and returning for a second and third read. Marshall Thornton delivers a not-to-be missed holiday tale of romance, lust, family secrets, and entangled relationships. Do not let this one pass you by!”
From Dark Divas, “Marshall Thornton has packed so much into this story that it amazed me. There’s heartache, anger, mystery, soul searching and of course love and romance. There weren’t just remote references to these things either. All were complete scenes told in great detail that had me totally engrossed until the very end. I don’t think I’ve ever known an author to get so much into so few pages. And the ending, well, lets just say it left me with a big smile on my face!”
