A Father for Christmas: A Veteran's Christmas, Book 1 - Rachelle Ayala (audio book review)

So I am reviewing this wonderful audio book by one of my favourite authors Rachelle Ayala.
It is Narrated by Elizabeth Klett

About the book
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.

The reviewHere is the review that is also up on audible.com

Would you consider the audio edition of A Father for Christmas to be better than the print version?
well I enjoy reading the print book and listen to be book and they are equally good, no matter who you enjoy the story. The book was perfect to listen to when dealing with the Christmas stuff around the house and when I didnt have time to sit down. I just loved the audio version of the book so much.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Bree, it is impossible not to just love Bree. She is so funny and so childish awesome. She makes you laugh and acts just like a child should. She brings out so much to the story and she pops out when reading and she is just awesome in this audio version. She asks all the awkward things, she shows love where no other would. She is just the light in the story.

What does Elizabeth Klett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Sometimes I realiserad that I missed things when I read the story because English is not my native language and when I now listen to it I understood parts because they where pronounced and so correct which I had done wrong when reading.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
The book is very long but if I had the time, I would love to listen to it. I got annoyed when I had to adult outside of listening to the book, like when my husband tried to talk to me and stuff like that. So if I just could be left alone for long enough I would love listen to it in one sitting.

Any additional comments?
This story is just amazing and I love the fact that the author takes up subjects you normally don't think about. A Child who just wants a father and don't understand why she don't have one. How she "finds" one, a veteran who don't have a good life. I love how we get to see the ugly dirty sides as well as the sweet and loving side. This is just a wonderful book with the most wonderful child fictive child I have ever meet.
