Joy Candellaro used to love Christmas more than any other time of the year.

Now, as the holiday approaches, she finds herself at loose ends. The below review does have minor spoilers that take place in the first chapter of the book. I spent the entire first three-quarters of this book hung up totally on the fact that Joy walked away from a plane crash, emergency personnel and help in general simply because she was "looking for an adventure" and that "the forest was beckoning her"/5.

Also as before, what his page-by-page craft sweeps you along to is a virtual dead end: a kinky, symbolic sexual situation which is neither effective as storytelling nor freshly resonant as metaphor.
