Kelly Kennedy and Tyler Manning are planning a Christmas wedding, and her six-year-old daughter, Bree, is worried about being the perfect flower girl. Complications arise when Tyler gets reacquainted with a female soldier he rescued back in Afghanistan. Meanwhile, Kelly gets an urgent message from the man who fathered Bree, asking for a big favor.
With their Christmas wedding looming, Kelly and Tyler must tie up all loose ends while Bree risks her life to do a good deed before Santa’s sleigh hits their roof. Will love, faith, and a Christmas miracle be enough to keep their family together?
Elizabeth is pleased to announce the release of Rachelle Ayala’s A Pet For Christmas, the second book in the Veteran’s Christmas series, now available at Audible! The first book, A Father For Christmas, was released last spring, and the final installment, A Wedding For Christmas, should be out soon. These are wonderful and heartwarming books, perfect for any time of the year.
Kelly Kennedy thought her life was finally on track. Engaged to the man of her dreams and with a baby on the way, she reassures her five-year-old daughter Bree, that the father she picked for Christmas still loves her.
Unfortunately, war veteran Tyler Manning has been away most of the year. Recovering from PTSD isn’t easy. Rather than worry Kelly, Tyler spends his time traveling to Afghanistan to work at a children’s charity he founded.
Kelly decides to distract Bree with promises of a pet for Christmas. When Tyler is taken hostage by terrorists, she finds it hard to convince Bree that they will truly be a family in time for Christmas.
A Pet for Christmas is a sequel to A Father for Christmas. While it can be listened to as a standalone, you’ll get more of the relationship aspect between Kelly, Tyler, and Bree by listening to A Father for Christmas first.
