A Pet for Christmas Book Tour & My Review

Disclosure; Cali Book Reviews received a copy of this book from Beck Valley Book Tours in exchange for my honest opinion. All opinions are 100% my own!


To those who still suffer the wounds of war.


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 A Father for Christmas. While it can be read as a standalone, you’ll get more of the relationship aspect between Kelly, Tyler, and Bree by reading A Father for Christmas first.

My Thoughts

I read A Father for Christmas by Rachelle Ayala and I absolutely adored the characters! Bree, Kelly and Tyler made it so easy to fall in love with them, especially little Bree! So imagine how happy I was when I saw that there was going to be a SECOND book in this series!! I could read about them again!! This time, with a completely different story!

Tyler is back in Afghanistan and finds himself in trouble. I held my breath, not knowing what was gong to happen to him. He left Bree, Kelly and their Unborn baby at home by themselves, so I really hoped everything was going to be okay! Did I get my wish? Well, you’ve gotta read this to find out!

“Heartwarming story of hope and second chances.” – Ruth Davis on Book 1, A Father for Christmas
