Natalie is trying to escape the recent
setbacks in her life. Mainly the breakup of the five-year
relationship she had been in when she finds out something
shocking about her boyfriend. She figures one way that will
help to comfort her is to spend the holiday at the family
beach house, since she canít take the time off to spend with
the rest of her family. But, when she arrives at the shared
beach house she finds it isnít empty. Oh things are just
perfect, the first man she has ever had a crush on, and who
turned her down years ago is also there. While their
childhood is tied together by their parents, and the fact
the beach house is shared she is not sure she is up for the
mental battle that will ensue in sharing the house. But, it
looks like Mother Nature has other plans for her.
Drew is at the beach house for the
holidays as it is where he feels closest to the memories of
his parents. It hasnít even been a year since their tragic
early death, in a plane crash. But, he didnít count on the
emotions that being all alone in the house would bring.
Especially the ones for his long time crush on Natalie. Boy
did he mess that one up. But, it looks like he might get
another chance when who but Natalie should show up just
before a huge storm is to start?
Will the two finally let their true
feelings out and let nature take its course?
The Deed is a fast paced
Christmas inspired story that will warm your heart. I loved
how both characters had been "crushing" on each other for
more than a decade but were afraid to do anything about it.
Then the Ms. Gissendaner sets up a holiday encounter where
Mother Nature helps to set the stage so that maybe they will
give into their feelings and take the chance. The
Deed is a winner for those who understand crushes,
friendship and love.
