**Today I get to welcome author London Price for a review on a favorite holiday read.**
I don’t remember why I picked up The Remaking of Corbin Wale initially; it may have been on sale (I am notoriously cheap). But I was drawn to the mystical cover, and that promise was more than fulfilled by the contents. Corbin Wale is cursed, and the characters who live in his head are his only real friends besides his dogs. Nobody in town seems to want him around…nobody, that is, except Alex, who’s just come home to run a bakery in town. It’s refreshing to read a book that’s not about Christmas but still retains that sense of wonder and magic that the holidays evoke. Alex has strong feelings about holidays, and it was affirming to read a book that dares to be openly political even about things people hold dear like Thanksgiving. But then again, this book never tries not to be complicated. It’s a slow-burn dance between two men who both want more, even if Corbin is convinced it’s in Alex’s best interest if they never get it. The payoff is definitely worth it, and seeing a neurodiverse character like Corbin get the HEA he deserves just warmed me from the inside out. I highly recommend this holiday read if you want all the feels!
