If you are looking for a wonderful Christmas short story, look no further. Allyson Abbott has written (in my opinion) a nice short story, A Prickly Christmas Kiss. This story is such a sweet story about a small town romance with a cabin, a wonderful holiday season, and even some holiday furry animals. I personally love Allyson Abbott’s stories as they are fun and realistic stories. Her characters can be a part of my world. I really feel close to them. In this story, I love Elf (Emma Louise Fallon). I want her to be my best friend. She is trying to keep everything on the low down, but she is having a heck of a time. I hope you take the time to sit down and bond with Elf.
I have read a couple of books from this author and she always ends up surprising me. My favorite books are about Christmas and this author exceeded my expectations all over again. This is part of the Christmas Kiss series. They don’t have to be read in any order because they are a lot different couples. I was hooked on this book right from the beginning. It only took me a day to devour this magical book.
Mel loves her family and she can’t wait to spend Christmas with them. She is on her way back home when her mother tells she needs to go help out her Aunt in Spain. Mel finally gets to Spain and she is so lost. She doesn’t know much Spanish but she notices a very handsome man sitting next to her. When Mel gets to her Aunt’s house it not what she was thinking. It is anything but a beach vacation. She has animals to take care of and other chores. Mel gets help from this handsome stranger and she starts to feel some chemistry but can they get past the language barrier? Will Mel find something she never expected to find again, love or will she end up going home for Christmas alone?
I absolutely loved this book. This is the perfect book to get you into the Christmas spirit. It has everything you are looking for romance, humor, and love. You fall in love with these characters. Mel is so strong and loves her family so much. She will do anything for the person she loves. Lucas is the perfect gentleman. He can’t fight his feelings for Mel. The way he treats her will make you swoon. This author will have you at the edge of your seat until the end. I can’t wait to read the next book in this magical series.
A Pink Christmas Kiss by Allyson R Abbott
4 out of 5 stars
This sweet book is book 3 out of 4 in the in Christmas Kiss series. I love Christmas stories. I get all the warm and fuzzies. In this story, Billie left her small Podunk town for the Big Apple, hoping that the love and light of her life, Leroy, would follow her….long story short…he didn’t. Big egos and load of pride get in the way of finding their happily ever after right then and there.
Five years later, Billie is home to help out her family. She does make the time to meet up with old friends and she runs into Leroy..and discovers that there was a reason behind him not taking the trip East with her.
I love this book. This entire series has been very sweet, sappy and overall adorable. You can easily read this book in one sitting and not lose pace with the characters, stories or details. Recommended for romance novel lovers and those who love seasonal reads.
A Pink Christmas Kiss by Allyson R Abbott is the third book in her Christmas Kiss series. Each of these books can be read as a stand-alone and they are all as good as each other.
For me this has to have been the sweetest story out of them all so far. Small town romance gone wrong. It had everything you could want out of this type of book. Billie and Leroy are exactly how I imagine small town characters to be.
Like the others, this book was an easy read, that was perfect to just get lost in for a few hours. Another enjoyable story.

A Tangy Christmas Kiss is the second book in the Christmas Kiss series by Allyson R. Abbott. This is the story of Mel who is sent to Spain to take care of her aunt’s home during the holidays. On her trip, she meets Lucas. The two have an instant connection despite a major language barrier. On her house sitting Mel discovers that there is much she does not know about her aunt.
This is a sweet, romantic read. I enjoyed that it was a quick read and with an uplifting story. The characters are sweet and there is a bit of innocence to them. The story just flows and I didn’t want to put it down. I had to find out if everything worked out for Mel. I also enjoyed the importance of family and how they all played a part in the story. I look forward to reading more in the series.

A Tangy Christmas Kiss by Allyson R. Abbott is the second book in the Christmas Kiss series. This book can be read as a stand-alone.
This book is a fun and lovable holiday romance about a woman trying to help out her family. It isn’t as straight forward as it should be and hilarity soon follows.
I really enjoyed this book because it was one of those stories that you could easily just lose yourself in for a few hours. You can turn off reality and just enjoy a well written and entertaining story.
The main character Mel was delightful to read about. She takes everything in her stride – even though everything is going wrong. I liked how, despite it being an odd request, she still helps out her family.
This was a great book and a good addition to the series.
A Tangy Christmas Kiss is the second book in the Christmas Kiss series by Allyson R. Abbott. It is a sweet holiday romance that confirms that anything that can go wrong- will! There is hilarity, funny antics, language barriers, challenges, romance, and endearing characters. There was a lot more to this story than it may seem from first appearances. Melanie (Mel) had me intrigued right from the first page, as I followed her on her story. From the moment she gets the call from her mother asking her to look after her aunts’ home while her aunt is in hospital- everything that could go wrong certainly does. Her promise to her mother takes her on a mad-cap journey that throws her right out of her comfort zone, leaving her feeling a little lost and vulnerable. But what happens when a sexy stranger comes to her aid? Yes, there might be a serious language barrier, but he seems to want to help her non-the-less. Will she be desperate enough to let a complete stranger help her? What happens when he sees her to her destination? Mel is unprepared for everything that’s about to happen, once she arrives at her aunts. What will the future hold? All this and more can be discovered be reading this delightful story…
Ms. Abbott has such a wonderfully descriptive, warm, and inviting style to her writing. Her stories always draw me in and keep me engaged the whole way through. They are so easy to read and always leave feeling good- as this story did.
This may be a story set around Christmas and the holidays, but it is a lovely story that deserves to be read, and enjoyed, at any time of the year!
Thank you yet again, Ms. Abbott!!
