Exit Through the Gift Shop (2018 Advent Calendar - Warmest Wishes) Kindle Edition
Alex’s traditional family Christmas Compromise means spending the holiday at a second-rate theme park, Poseidon’s Planet, but Alex doesn’t mind. He enjoys the rides and the company of his family, and it’s a good break from his going-nowhere existence back in Indiana. Then he meets a certain sexy employee in a pirate costume, and Alex’s vacation gets even better. But thrill rides last only a short time, and sooner or later everyone has to return to real life. Alex long ago gave up on marrying a handsome prince—will he have to give up on his pirate as well?
A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2018 Advent Calendar "Warmest Wishes."

Alex’s family doesn’t have traditional Christmases… but they always have a lot of fun. This year is no different – going to a B-rated theme park for the holidays. Everything is progressing like it does every year… until Alex gets some help from a sexy pirate when purchasing his sister’s Christmas gift.
The pirate is something else – intriguing, and a bright spark in an otherwise mediocre day. Maybe Alex can wish for “more” this Christmas and ask Santa for a Pirate under his tree?
With some fantastic writing, Exit Through the Gift Shop has a warmth and beautiful anticipation which I find can be difficult to experience in such a quick read.

This is a charmingly sweet and warm Xmas short story from Kim Fielding. I love Alex's family with their compromise Christmas holiday idea, truely enjoying their break in the warm Florida sun and being so welcoming. They all make this story flowing easily and one can grin and relax along with them while reading on. Thanks to the detailed descriptions I could imagine the different park settings well and see Alex walking through them, having fun and finally meeting his charming pirate. When the ride broke and he was late for his first date with Rory, I became really worried for both of them. Due to the fewer pages their relationship seems to progress quite fast, but it is always cute and heart warming.
Likeable characters and a light read combined with a constant grin was just what I needed during the crazyness before the holidays * smile *
