It's a particularly bad night to be homeless when you're cold and soaked through from the freezing rain. Cal Harrison seeks warmth for a few minutes inside a bar, when Matt Kirkland notices him. He buys him a hot drink and food, even offering him shelter for the night. Cal is distrustful of Matt's kindness but accepts it anyway. When truths are revealed, he goes back to the streets. Did he just make the biggest mistake of his life?

Small Miracles is short and sweet. It's a poignant tale of unexpected love given the circumstances. It's a fairly well-written, nice read. It's a challenge to write a solid short story especially when instant love is involved. The story reads like a modern day fairy tale with the hero riding to the rescue. I liked Matt but I felt more of a connection to Cal. Their journey to happiness is too good to be true but I went with it anyway. I wish the story would have been longer. The beginning was excellent, the middle so-so and the end needed a epilogue. However, I found it entertaining.
