Book Review: All I Want For Christmas Is You

                                             Today's review is on All I Want For Christmas Is You by Lisa Mondello

All I Want For Christmas Is You is a delightful and well written story of forgiveness, love, and the magic of Christmas.

Lauren Alexander's life was turned upside down when she became pregnant.  Not only did the father of her baby leave, but her parents disowned her.  She was supposed to go off to college and become a successful architect, not create a scandal.  Taking her infant daughter with her, Lauren leaves her hometown and starts over.

Six years have passed by, and though Lauren struggles to provide for Kristen and herself, she tries her very best.  But her best may not be enough this Christmas.  This year Kristen wants the one thing that Lauren can not provide. 

Kyle Preston knows the pain of being abandoned by a parent.  He also knows the love of one too.  Adopted at a late age, Preston becomes a member of a large and happy family.  The love and care he received from them has made him a loving and giving man who dresses up as Santa each Christmas season for the children that visit his mall.

This year Kristen wants a Daddy, and that's exactly what she tells Santa.  But is this something that even Santa can't provide?

A beautifully written book that will definitely leave you excited for the Holiday's! I wonder what would happen if I put "rich and handsome husband" on my Santa list???

Book Description:

Sometimes fate needs a little hand...

Santa Claus is going to have a rough season... Lauren Alexander is raising her daughter alone. Abandoned by her family for her decision to keep her daughter Kristen, she has done a pretty good job for the last six years. Or she thought she had. That's why she is crushed when little Kristen gives up her wish for a toy or goodie and instead asks Santa for a present for her mother. She wants Santa to bring a Daddy. Delivering Daddies isn't Santa's bag.

But this Santa has a plan...

Kyle Preston knows what it is like to be abandoned too. Luckily he found the support of loving adoptive parents and has turned himself into one of the most successful Real Estate developers in town.

Building a house is easy. Building someone's trust is a whole other story. But with a little helping hand, a little Christmas magic can make all the difference in the world.
