Anthropologist Lowell, is studying the
Enknopans, and though he’s made a good friend of Tiklup,
Lowell is excluded from an Enknopan “turning year”
celebration because of the Enknopan restriction on
outsider’s participation. To participate or observe, one
needs to be related to one of the Enknopans.
To show no hard feelings for the
exclusion, Lowell tries to share his Santa tradition by
leaving a surprise gift for Tiklup, in a traditional Santa
method. Only issue for Lowell is the architecture of the
Enknopan homes. No windows for Santa, so Lowell uses the
“house’s smoke hole” and becomes stuck in the chimney. As
Tiklup and his friends return and discover Lowell’s
predicament, a delightfully sexy gift exchange commences all
taking place while Lowell is still stuck in the chimney.
Do you ever just laugh out loud while reading? The
Joy of Exchanging Gifts had me alternatively
laughing out loud and then just plain giggling for the
naughtiness. I know it’s a Nice Sip, but for me, Lowell and
his friends are just plain naughty, in a very nice way!
The Joy of Exchanging Gifts is a hilarious, fun,
sexy off-world read!!
