Not everyone is happy that Sheriff Virgil Grissom has been re-elected for another four years. In fact, his opponent filed a voter’s count challenge. The hard-won campaign has made Virgil surly. Luckily Virgil’s partner, former rock star Johnny Rayne, is the remedy Virgil needs to improve his mood. 

Winning in a Landslide is the Christmas sequel to A Change of Tune. Virgil and Johnny are still in the adjustment period of being a couple with two small children. In the community of Elkins, West Virginia some of the residents have mixed feelings about gay men adopting kids while a few others are simply homophobic. However, upon reflection Virgil realizes how empty his life was before meeting Johnny. Virgil refuses to abandon his home life for the sake of his career. Johnny realizes he has the life he always wanted, a loving partner and children.  

JM Cartwright’s Winning in a Landslide is an enjoyable, as well as an especially heartwarming story.
