Thirty-three-year-old technical writer Laurence Hart is a modern-day Scrooge when it comes to the holiday season—and the rest of the year, too. He doesn’t like most people, they don’t like him, and he’s happy to keep it that way. Over lunch with his best friend, he receives a fortune cookie promising him true love. The next day, forced to work on a holiday charity committee or lose his job, he meets Nick, a jolly ginger giant who loves all things Christmas. Together they face numerous obstacles to put together a holiday fair to raise money for children in foster care, in only four days. While Laurence has to mend his curmudgeonly ways to make the event a success, Nick’s holiday magic might mend Laurence’s heart.
The Fortune Cookie by Matt Burlingame
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Lawrence hates Christmas.
Struggled with his own demon about his childhood and his past story, he need some miracles to see the spirit of holiday seasons.
Almost nothing made him like the holiday, until Nick came into his life, and the unfortunate kids that reminds him of his childhood.
But something's happened , and Lawrence can't help it except unconsciously, he became the hero of the holiday.
Sweet and heart warming.
