Frankie Faraday is a promising young salesperson at Mason’s Emporium. Bill Mason is his boss, the son of the store’s founder, and the object of Frankie’s long-suffering, deeply devoted crush. Bill is steady and sober; Frankie is frivolous and flaky. Or so they seem to each other, until the night of the annual inventory, when they’re trapped together in the Seasonal Gifts storeroom, with nothing but candy and peppermint schnapps to sustain them until they’re rescued. And then the real truths—and something definitely more intimate—emerge!
The Peppermint Schnapps Predicament is a sweet, funny story from Clare. A naughty and nice tale of two men trapped in a storeroom. It made me giggle out loud, especially the peppermint hiccups. A lovely Christmas read, and I'd love to see it as a Christmas short movie.
