Nell Iris' Christmas

Holidays at Nell’s: Day 31

Finally, it’s here. The day we’ve all been waiting for: the last day of 2020. I could go on and on about all the crappy things that’s made this year so awful, but I want to finish the year on a positive note, so I won’t. Besides, 2020 was the year I became a grandmother to the most adorable little baby, so there’s no way I can be sad and upset. ❤️

Instead, let’s get to today’s recommendation. Which, you’ve probably guessed, is my brand spanking new NYE story, Resolutions for an Arbitrary Holiday.

Two strangers, a twisted ankle, an ancient stone ship, and a New Year’s Eve they’ll never forget

Petter sneaks out of the New Year’s party he didn’t want to go to and treks to an old burial site he’s dying to see. Alone. Without telling anyone on a freezing December night. Without cell service…a huge problem when he twists his ankle.

Someone passes by Isak’s house on the path leading to the stone ship. When the person never returns, Isak worries and sets off to investigate. What he finds is Petter, a pack of sparklers, and an instant connection.

Under a starry sky, they learn they have a lot in common. Will the attraction burn hot and fizzle out like the fireworks going off over their heads when they return to the real world? Or will it deepen, grow, and turn into something real? Something everlasting like the stone ship?

Bubbly and sparklers by the stone ship. Sounds like the perfect New Year’s celebration to me.

Quote from Resolutions for an Arbitrary Holiday

If you want to read about two guys who meet by an ancient stone monument on New Year’s Eve because one guy twisted his ankle and the other came to his rescue. If you want sparklers, bad tasting bubbly, and new year’s resolutions, both serious and not. If you want honest and intimate conversations about life, universe, and everything. And if you want to read about two guys with an instant connection and lots of delicious kisses, this is the story for you.

“I would’ve spent the night on the couch, watching crappy television, probably falling asleep a long time ago, if I hadn’t set out on the heroic quest to rescue you.”

That makes me smile. “Heroic quest, huh?”


“I don’t know. Don’t knights in shining armor usually ride to the rescue on a white horse?”

“You tell me. You’re the history nerd.”
