"Christmas on Breakers Point" by Chautona Havig and Christa DelSorbo AudioBook Tour and GiveAway

About the Book

Book:  Christmas on Breakers Point

Author: Chautona Havig and Christa DelSorbo

Genre: Christian Contemporary Romance

Release date: September 1, 2020

One man’s last Christmas wish might change two lives forever.

Mallory Barrows has one last Christmas with her uncle. She’s determined to make it the best one he’s ever had.

She knows when she asks what he wants as his final gift, it won’t be a tie or a new mug. He won’t need those where he’s going, and he’s quite happy about that.

Mallory just didn’t think he wanted a miracle wrapped in paper and tied with a shiny red bow!

In a twist on a “last chance romance,” Christmas on Breakers Point introduces a new series featuring five islands, six authors, and a boatload of happily-ever-afters.

Christmas on Breakers Point is the introductory book to the Independence Islands Series.

The Independence Island Series: Beach listens aren’t just for summer anymore.

I loved this story and am eagerly awaiting the rest in the series but I have to be honest and say for me it was a tear jerker. It might not be a tear jerker for all. It was for me because while reading my mind kept going back to to the last few months I had with mom and her struggle with cancer.

This book really clearly points out the fact that the main focus in life should be Jesus. This book is another book that I think belongs in a genre called "real life fiction.  It has all the elements of real life such as struggling with faith and learning that we all struggle and life and dying and love. The plot might be different but I am sure this story has happen somewhere in the world at many times.

This book really kept me turning the pages and I don't want to stop when I reached  the last page when I read the book in 2019. I enjoyed listening to the story  instead of reading. The different tones the narrater used make the story more alive. 

I am going to share something from the book that really explains why we have to deal with all the pain and evil in this world. " The world is a sick. hurting place,.....Jesus is the only for the hate, the disease, the selfishness, and the greed. But unless every person in it is cured, it'll go on affecting all of us-even those who have been promised eternal remission from the disease of sin."

I think this series is going to become one of my many  favorites. I really recommend this book to anyone that likes "real life fiction". Yes, this book is sad but it offers hope also.

This book is my favorite Christmas read so far this year! In fact, it is my favorite of Chautona Havig books!

I was given a complimentary copy by the author and Celebrate Lit. These opinions are my own.

Wasn't Christa AMAZING? She nailed Bud like nobody's business (okay, she nailed the rest, too but he was my biggest concern.
