Frankie is totally over the top, which becomes very clear as soon as the story kicks off.
“I guess you might say my current predicament is punishment for my sins.
What sins? you may ask, amazed that a cute twink like me with such angelic features and a sweet sunny disposition could be so debauched.”
Bill on the other hand is adorably gruff and totally in denial when it comes to how he sees himself, his life and especially Frankie. He tries very hard to convince both himself and the reader that Frankie is something of a walking and talking disaster but can’t deny the attraction he feels, no matter how hard he tries.
In fact, neither man is exactly how they at first appear. Frankie has a lot more going for him than his flamboyant style and lighthearted approach to life and his job seem to indicate, whereas Bill isn’t really the bullish business man he portrays while at work.
Trapped together in the tiny and locked store room is the perfect situation for these two men, who may or may not have been admiring each other from a safe distance for some time, to get closer to each other and discover that sometimes there’s more to a person than what we see at first glance.
Lighthearted, fun, sexy, and totally heartwarming, The Peppermint Schnapps Predicament is a wonderful little treat and a very worthy addition to my collection of holiday reads.
As they attempt to find a way out of their “predicament”, Frankie gets hungry. It seems the only food around is peppermint schnapps and chocolate Santa Clauses. Frankie gets a bit tipsy, making him bolder than he would normally be. In his slightly inebriated state, his feelings for Bill emerge. Frankie kisses Bill and Bill reciprocates, making things quite warm. He's happy, but shocked to realize that his crush on Bill is not that farfetched. In fact, Bill has been noticing him as well. While waiting to be rescued, they open up to each other about their fears, likes, and dreams. Bill and Frankie begin to see how they are not so different after all; actually, they may even complement each other.
This is an amusing, sexy holiday story reminding everyone not to judge a book by its cover. Clare has written the story in first person with alternating chapters between Frankie and Bill. With such a short story, this proves to be an efficient way to present each character's point of view. It was enlightening to see how different each man’s perception was and how well they were able to figure things out together. Thanks, Clare, for the bit of Christmas cheer.
