{Book Review} A Father for Christmas

Christmas is around the corner and there is nothing I like more than a Christmas miracle, you know like the movie 'Christmas on 13st street". This book by Rachelle is again an amazing work, well written, good use of grammar and can relate to the characters. Though just a well written story it also captures quite well what seems to be happening to most war veterans and also what us women via life experiences have made us choose certain routes than the 'norm'. I love Rachelle's imagination and her illustrations, she takes you on a journey that once the book has ended though happy you want it to continue (I am always begging for part-two).


Review
Tyler - War veteran now homeless man, gave up scholarship to join big league football (american football) for enlisting and fighting for his country. Now back from the war and honourably discharged ( he also gave up his severance pay to charity) "his called war hero to big zero". Kelly - single woman who choose to have a child via sperm donation. Found herself in an unfortunate situation which lead her to prison stint and now struggling single mum with help from her mother and sister. These two unlikely people meet when Kelly's daughter gets lost whilst out visiting santa at the mall, she is found wondering by Tyler but before could be returned Tyler is spotted with the little girl and because of his 'homeless' look kelly concludes he was going to kidnap the child. This is obviously foiled and as you continue to read the book you start to see how the barriers are broken down and I love how Rachelle the author illustrates the struggles that Tyler suffers (he has PTSD) and I am sure not most of us would want someone who at any given time can snap back into war zone mode around our kids but during this story you get to understand and learn how we should really bear and treat our veterans. I loved this romance book and enjoyed every bit of it, you must check it out in time for christmas.

Product Description
Single mother Kelly Kennedy can't afford lavish gifts for her four-year-old daughter, Bree. Homeless veteran Tyler Manning doesn't believe he deserves a Merry Christmas.
When Bree asks Santa for a father and picks Tyler, both Tyler and Kelly vow to keep Bree from being hurt while fighting their feelings for each other.
Tyler struggles with frightening flashbacks that scare Kelly. Meanwhile, Kelly's criminal past threatens her chance for happiness. Tyler and Kelly must believe in the power of love to give Bree her best Christmas ever.

Sounds interesting. It would be a bit of a change to read this book. I'm so use to very predictable characters but this one sounds like it will be different.

Perfect for the season and it does seems like a good read.

This may seem very predictable but nevertheless even though you know the ending getting to that is the best part and the fact that its relatable makes it even better
