Both Ways is the Only Way I Want It by Maile Meloy
This Christmas gift from my husband was a lovely read over break. Meloy's short stories are contemporary and moving. I began at the back of the book with "O Tannenbaum", for obvious reasons. The story involves a couple out to cut down the perfect Christmas tree when they encounter another couple, stranded on the side of the road. Coincidently named Bonnie and Clyde, the strangers add an element of danger to a peaceful outing.
