I am very happy that I was given a copy of
Rachelle Ayala's "A Father for Christmas" to read and review.
This book was a really nice, easy read that was full of hope and a bit of romance, that made you want to believe in Christmas miracles.
The book is set in California during the Christmas season. Right away you have to know that your heart strings are going to be "pulled", but it is still a definite must read.
Bree, who is 4 years old, doesn't understand that Santa can't make every dream come true, so she asks him to bring her a father for Christmas. Of course Santa "pwo-missed" he would be under the tree ....
Kelly, Bree's mother, is a single mother who has had her fair share of bad luck. She was an investment banker who made a mistake, a mistake that cost her everything. Everything that is except Bree, but she doesn't believe that a father is what Bree needs.
Tyler, is a war hero, who thinks he is anything but a hero. He has returned back to the United States with his own struggles, including PTSD. It is unfortunate that he doesn't believe he is worthy of anything.
The three of them become part of a Christmas miracle, that will heal the broken spirit of both Kelly and Tyler, complements of a Santa's wish, that should melt even the coldest of hearts. I told you it would be pulling at your heart strings.
As I was reading the story, I found myself hoping that Kelly and Tyler would get together and stay together no matter how difficult it would be. You just want them to let their guards down and learn to trust again.
The book is well written. Although you believe you know how it will end, you don't want to put this book down until the end. A Father for Christmas is a really nice book that is suitable for young adults, as there are no questionable chapters, and makes you believe in love and forgiveness.
