I liked that this was kinda lighthearted. I picked it up bc it was a Christmas read but have to say I didn't relate to the decisions any of the characters made and the situation the story revolves around was kind of absurd. Although there are many Christmas stories and especially movies I do like, unfortunately this wasn't one of them. I respect that it was well written, the characters were mostly interesting, and the performance pretty good.

This is a super sweet Christmas story and was my first for the season. It's a novella and is guaranteed to make you smile. Although Kris tries to pass off roasted vegetables as the epitome of holiday eating, there are still lots of decadent deserts mentioned to make your mouth water. My main issue with this story involves the romantic conflict. It's explained well and is a reasonable conflict. The resolution, however, is lacking.
Although there was a significant hole in the resolution of the story, it was still very enjoyable. I think it would make a great audio story to play during a family car trip.
Disclaimer: I received this audiobook at no-cost from Audiobookworm Promotions. This gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
Narration: The narration was well-done for this audiobook. The character distinction was clear, for the most part, which made it easy to understand which characters were speaking. The narrator displayed commendable tonal range. Male and female characters were easily differentiated. Younger characters did sound similar to the elves; and I wished Kyle's voice was a bit more masculine. He sometimes sounded like one of the elves.
Production: Sound quality was good. The audio was clear and sound levels were consistent. Pauses between chapters was sufficient.
Overall Experience: Overall this story translated to audio quite well. I don’t think anything was lost in the translation. I enjoyed listening.
