Book Description: When Abby goes home for Christmas to her parent's home in Alder Creek, she is surprised when her latest love interest is there... with her sister. In Yuletide Mishaps, there is one calamity after another for Abby, but in the true spirit of Christmas, her family bonds grow stronger, and the love that she has shared with Ben Sheridan will be put to test. Will they be able to put this behind them and move on, or will they deny themselves a love that could stand the test of time.
Story Line: Abby is a business owner of a small but successful diner. When two random customers, Ben and Dean, come to lunch Abby takes the table. It is almost instantly that Abby and Ben find the other attractive. After a run in with the grocery store Abby agrees to go on a date with Ben. The date goes wonderful. Now it’s Friday and Abby goes to meet her family and sister Lucy at the family home for Christmas. Lucy brings a mystery guy with her who happens to be Ben. Read the book to find out how Christmas and the time after Christmas go.
Characters: Abby, Lucy, Ben, Dean, David, Nathan, Lauren, Chely, Brad, Jane, Jacob, Bella and the rest of her family.
My Favorite Character: Abby and David. I love strong women characters that take their life in their own hands. Abby does this by working hard and giving to others. Not only does she run her own business but she also gives to many people that are less fortunate then she is. I also love David because he is truly a best friend. Always there with good advice and able to talk sense into you when you are in upsetting situations, everyone needs a friend like David.
My Favorite Part: At dinner when Abby says she wants to open a shelter and his sister Lucy looks down at the idea because homeless people don’t need the help. Abby goes off on her sister along with a few other people at dinner (who also go off on Lucy). I love watching people stand up for their beliefs and defending those who can’t defend themselves.
Full Concept: Each page draws you more and more into the holiday mishaps of the family learning more about each character and their views and stances in life, questioning why and more. I couldn’t stop reading and smiling. I love how upbeat and even in times of disagreement how humorous this story is.
Overall Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars. Truly an unfolding love story that will touch your heart and make you smile all while mentally beating up each character for how they deal with the situation and the stupid choices they make or things they say.
