A Tangy Christmas KissA Tangy Christmas Kiss by Allyson R. Abbott
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A Tangy Christmas Kiss by Allyson R Abbott is the second book in the series and follows the story of Mel and her horrendous mishaps that happen along the way.

Mel is travelling to her parents for Christmas but half way through the journey she is turned about by her mother and she has to go and help her aunt in Spain. Although the trip there is a manic mishaps one after another once she is safely in Spain she is complete lost and does not know which way to go until she meets a handsome stranger who helps her. Once she arrives at her aunt’s place she is unaware of what she has to do to help, she thought she was walking into a lovely relaxing beach vacation to be thrust into the world of animals.

As the story progress you get to see the relationship blossoms between the two characters and the great way the story weaves is great to read. This is not the first story I have read by this author and as normal this is a well written, delightful story. I recommend this series as each book can be read as a stand alone story.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“A Frothy Christmas Kiss” brings us the best novella yet in Allyson R Abbott’s Christmas Kiss series! As a coffee fanatic myself, this book was right up my alley! Kat, our leading lady, finds herself moving away from home for a new job and to find distance from her former best friend and ex, Spencer. While trying to learn about her new town, Kat discovers a wonderful coffee shop and its wonderful owner, Dan. She is captivated by the aroma of the shop and finds herself engrossed in conversation about her love of coffee with Dan. This story was my favorite of the series, but I am very coffee biased so that was expected from me from page one! I loved Kat and her passion for coffee, as it is so relatable to me. As always, Allyson R Abbott found a way to incorporate a fun neighborhood cat into the story to make it even more perfect! Do yourself a favor and take just two short hours and get lost in this great novella! “A Frothy Christmas Kiss” earns five stars from me!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“A Pink Christmas Kiss” is the next installment in Allyson R Abbott’s lovely Christmas Kiss series. In this novella, we meet Billie, living in New York and hating all of it but her best friend, Lucy, Billie decides to move home to help her dad in his auto repair shop. With only her new cat and parents to keep her company, Billie immerses herself in the business and repairing an old Deuce Coupe so she can try to keep her mind off the man she left behind five years ago. This was such a nice read! Another wonderful, heartwarming story to keep you entertained on a cold day. Billie is such a great character! She was an impulsive young woman who was too headstrong to see what she should do, but after five years of hard lessons, she comes back a better and wiser woman and I love to see growth in a character like that! So, I give “A Pink Christmas Kiss” four stars as I go to start the final novella, “A Frothy Christmas Kiss!”

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A Frothy Christmas Kiss by Allyson R. Abbott is a five star novel. Even though this is the fourth book in the series, it is a standalone. The series only is a series because they are short, happy Christmas stories. This series has been a lot of fun to read and really helped to put me in the Christmas spirit. When the season starts, not all of us are ready, not all of us are happy for it to be here and not all of us enjoy the season as much as others. When trials happen in our lives, it is sometimes difficult to put that on the back burner and still be able to find the joy of Christmas. I feel this series tries to show that in a tangible way. When Kay moves away from home, she finds herself lonely and without her best friend. She finds a hole in the wall coffee shop and quickly finds her place there but because of a misunderstanding is having a difficult time being content. As the book progresses, we find out more about each of the characters and helps to bring them all together. Brian’s story was my favorite part of the whole book!

A Pink Christmas Kiss by Allyson R. Abbott – Review by Angela Shirley

A Pink Christmas KissA Pink Christmas Kiss by Allyson R. Abbott
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A Pink Christmas Kiss by Allyson R Abbott is the third book in the series and is full of Christmas cheer.

This lovely tale of Christmas, family secrets and romance is a great holiday read, with this short novella. I love the way Allyson’s characters are real and well development. Billie’s character is brilliant and well written, she made a decision a long time ago and ruined a great relationship with the love of her life. She was heart broken when he did not follow her but when she moves back to her home town and ruins into said ex boyfriend the sparks fly.

Will Billie be able to forgive him and rekindle the love they gave up years ago, you will have to read and find out.

This is a story of second chances and can be read as a stand alone story. If you enjoy a well written, detailed story I recommend not just this book but all of the stories from this wonderful author.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“A Tangy Christmas Kiss” is the second novella in the Christmas Kiss series by Allyson R. Abbott, but these are stand alones so they do not need to be read in any particular order that I’ve seen so far. This lovely story follows Mel, whose mother called last minute to get Mel to Spain to help her aunt after a surgery. Mel’s trip shows her the kindness of strangers and learning to accept help when it is offered as she figures out she isn’t as independent as she thought. The great lessons, wonderful characters and scenery all make this story perfect for Christmas! As an animal lover, the smaller theme of animals that seems to crop up in both books is a great added touch! These easy to read stories make for a nice afternoon in on a cold winter day! So, I give “A Tangy Christmas Kiss” four stars!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“A Prickly Christmas Kiss” by Allyson R Abbott is the first book in the Christmas Kiss series. This short and sweet novella follows Elf (Emma’s perfect nickname) and her Christmas adventure at a cabin in the woods outside of North Polerton. Elf was so happy to be spending Christmas with her friend Carla’s family cabin, until her perfect plans all fell apart. What happens is so much more than she was expecting and everything she needed. This story has all the magic of Christmas and all the fun as well! The setting, characters and perfect time of year help make this book a wonderful little read. I really enjoyed reading “A Prickly Christmas” and look forward to reading the rest of the series! So, I give “A Prickly Christmas Kiss” four stars!

A Tangy Christmas Kiss
Christmas Kiss
Book 2
By Allyson R. Abbott
☆☆☆☆☆
This is a sweet romance story, dealing with language barriers. A great story for the young adults and anybody who would enjoy a good clean romance.

When two strangers come to meet and neither one understands the other. Mel helps out her mother on request. She has flown to Spain, to house sit for her aunt Rose. Mel has no clue what she is about to walk into. Once in Spain, nothing is as she remembers. Not only that but she must learn to communicate, and to understand a foreign language. Challenges are in place and now she must adapt. Or lose the gorgeous young man who is there to help her.

Allyson Abbott has opened up a whole new world for me. Learning to adapt in a foreign country. Who knew? Not me! Having never left the USA. This story really opened my eyes. I absolutely fell in love with Mel and Lucas, their struggles were real. Their love was even better. Well done Allyson R. Abbott! Looking forward to reading the rest in this series.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A Pink Christmas Kiss by Allyson R. Abbott is a five star novel. This is the third book in the Christmas Kiss series. I have loved every book in this series so far and am excited to read the next one. This is a stand-alone book and is a quick and easy read. Billie goes away to the big city for a new and exciting life and left her boyfriend behind. They eventually quit talking and move in different directions. When she comes home five years later she isn’t sure what to expect but it sure wasn’t the hostility from Leroy. Wondering if they will work through it and at least be able to be friends, Billie restores an old car in her father’s garage.
