Kelly Kennedy thought her life was finally on track. Engaged to the man of her dreams and with a baby on the way, she reassures her five-year-old daughter Bree, that the father she picked for Christmas still loves her.
Unfortunately, war veteran Tyler Manning has been away most of the year. Recovering from PTSD isn't easy. Rather than worry Kelly, Tyler spends his time traveling to Afghanistan to work at a children's charity he founded.
Kelly decides to distract Bree with promises of a pet for Christmas. When Tyler is taken hostage by terrorists, she finds it hard to convince Bree that they will truly be a family in time for Christmas.
A Pet for Christmas is a sequel to A Father for Christmas. While it can be listened to as a standalone, you'll get more of the relationship aspect between Kelly, Tyler, and Bree by listening to A Father for Christmas first.

A very touching clean romance!

A Pet For Christmas
The pace and the emotions of each character were well read and kept me interested.
I liked everything about this story. It was deeply moving and helped some readers understand the real drama that returning veterans face and what their families and friends also deal with as they struggle to put their lives back together. It's a sweet, touching and at times heart wrenching story that manages to give us a warm holiday feeling also. (and what could be better than adding a pet to a story to make us smile?)
Yes, I have listened to other performances by Elizabeth Klett and this one is just as good as the others.
Oh gosh, there are so many moments. In fact at one point I had to turn it off and get myself under control again.
The story is a blend of so many emotions. Tyler dealing with PTSD, working in Afghanistan on his charity, never feeling like he is doing enough and he is a sweetheart. Kelly dealing with a risky pregnancy and trying to keep little Bree happy through the holidays and missing Tyler. Bree has so many questions and wants so many things but is a normal, active,inquisitive and somewhat stubborn little girl. It's one of those books that you just want to keep reading/listening to until the end and hope for that happy ending.
