When old schoolmates meet again, sparks fly!
It’s Christmas Eve, and down in Accident and Emergency Dr. Tom Berriman really hasn’t got into the festive spirit. Newly returned to his home town, he’s missing the big city he left behind and can’t get enthusiastic about a holiday he’ll be spending on his own. That is until he catches sight of the attractive electrician fixing the lights—who promptly crashes down out of the ceiling and becomes Tom’s patient. Tom can’t believe his luck…until he realises he knows the man already.
Electrician Vince has changed out of all recognition since they were at school together, where Vince was the butt of all the bullies’ jibes—and worse—while nursing a hopeless crush on Tom.
If the newly-hunky Vince can forgive his former tormentor, and Tom can get over his lingering guilt, maybe their Christmases won’t be quite so lonely after all.

Reviews for the first edition:
Good prose, great wit and two very charming, sexy Christmas heroes: to say nothing of a lively, glitzy pub show. I’m left a very happy reader, and give it a grade A.
A grade from Pettyprose at Brief Encounters
This was a delightful way to kick off the series… Myles painted a wonderful story of two slightly damaged souls coming together.

“Twinkle, Twinkle” … will bring a smile to your face and perhaps a surprise tear to your eye… What follows is a tale of regret, love lost and honored, raucous humor, a breathless romp and a ‘fairy’ tale ending that will touch your heart. I loved “Twinkle, Twinkle” so much I read it twice. It’s hard to project realism in a story that ends on pure magic but Ms. Myles does it wonderfully!

Another story by a new-to-me author now on my list of gotta-get, Josephine Myles’ Twinkle, Twinkle is beautiful. It’s also one of my favourite themes, that of friends to lovers…
There were some tears shed; both sad—for what Vince had lost—and definitely joyous, for what the two found together. This is a very sweet story filled with lots of heart and love, and it’s a superb romance for the season.

The way some young adults think it’s okay to tease and bully kids is terrible, but understanding how the past affected Tom was fascinating… Tom’s transformation from not caring about the holiday to gaining a love reminds me what the Christmas spirit is all about.
