Unique Contemporary Romance

I’m familiar with this author and I really enjoy listening to her stories. This was a very realistic story with a veteran suffering from PTSD. Tyler is nothing like any of the main characters in my other books. He is a homeless man and has been having flashbacks from when he was in the military. Kelly and Bree are also unique characters. Bree doesn’t have a father because Kelly opted for artificial insemination.

Narration was pretty good and brought the story to life.

This is a very unique Christmas romance with some misunderstandings and some ups and downs. Kelly is trying to hide some of her mistakes and makes some bad calls. Both main characters needed second chances.

Beautifully heartfelt story that is unforgettable

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I would recommend this audiobook to all of my book loving friends because this is a wildly entertaining story with a very vibrant narrator that will capture all of your senses and puling you into a world full of devastating heartache and breathtaking love.

What other book might you compare A Father for Christmas to and why?

This is truly a once in a lifetime story that I have yet to find a rival to compare. A special story like this one will live in your heart forever with his wonderful cast of characters and its heart string pulling plot.

Which character – as performed by Elizabeth Klett – was your favorite?

Elizabeth Klett really brought Kelly alive to me, and after her I really enjoyed Tyler. Bree's voice was completely adorable! I can't get over how much a narrator can truly breath new life into a story, and this one did that and so much more!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I wanted to listen to the entire captivating story in one sitting because it is such an intricate and heart-breaking story that it needs that extra bit of careful listening and dedication.

Any additional comments?

I thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful narrator, and I hope to listen to more audiobooks from her in the future.

A love story about second chances & forgiveness

This is a wonderful feel good story about two people who have been damaged by bad decisions made for the right decision. Kelly is an ex-convict and Tyler suffers from PTSD, courtesy of his time in Afghanistan. Both struggle with the day to day challenges of life in different ways.

Christmas is a magical time of the year. Kelly's little girl, Bree, with the help of a Christmas wish, brings these two struggling people together. But there is a long way to go before they can truly connect. Their way forward is through forgiveness, self-acceptance and unconditional support. There is a heavy emphasis on family, church and God in the story. But unlike many Christian based romances (where the emphasis is about one person, often extremely virtuous and religious, bringing the other to God and the Church) these two characters believe in God but are flawed, very human, very believable and very likable. Sometimes the inclusion of religion can leave the story very dry and a bit difficult to digest, but I didn't feel uncomfortable with the content at all.

Overall, the reader walks away with the feel-good feeling of hope and love. It is a positive story on very difficult subjects.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
