    This review is from: All I Want for Christmas is You (Paperback)

    When she waddled across the stage to receive her diploma, Lauren Alexander’s family was mortified by her pregnancy. Arranging for an adoption, her family hopes Lauren can attend college and survive the family scandal. However, the young mother could not bring herself to sign those adoption papers, leaving town with only her savings and her daughter cradled in her arms. Now Kristen is six, and Lauren struggles to provide all the things her daughter needs. Unfortunately, there’s not much left for things like Christmas.

    Kyle Preston remembers standing in court at the age of twelve when his father gave him to the state. Foster homes didn’t seem to want the boy as much as the check, until his adoptive parents gave him the love he needed. Now Kyle is an affluent real estate developer playing Santa Claus in his own mall. When little Kristen gives her a letter, his heart can’t help being touched. Rather than doll houses or easy-bake ovens, little Kristen only wants a daddy to help her momma. With Christmas three weeks away, Kyle finds himself sidestepping the promise.

    But Christmas is the time of magic, touching hearts and bringing them together. Perhaps a dead battery can be a blessing if two hearts can be led to find one another. And author Lisa Mondello certainly knows how to bring magic together with love. ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS proves a charming novel whether the time be Christmas or summer. With warm characters, a enduring child, and house full of wonderful secondary characters, ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS comes highly recommended.

    All I Want for Christmas is You by Lisa Mondello ebook
    First edition published 1998 by Neighborhood Press
    Book 1 of 3 in the Fate With A Helping Hand Series

    Kyle Preston knows what it is to change his life. Unwanted as a child he was ended up with the Preston’s when he was twelve. After years of being unwanted he did what he could to push them away but they had staying power. Now at almost thirty, Kyle is glad they did. He straightened out and even became wealthy. While playing Santa at the Mall he owns, a young girl comes and says all she wants for Christmas is a daddy. For some reason Kyle feels the need to protect this young girl and her lovely mother.

    Lauren Alexander loves her daughter, Kristen. As a teen Lauren made one mistake that cost her the love of her family but she has her daughter and would not trade her for anything. Kyle helps her when her car don’t start after leaving the mall and the next night he finds her at the tree lighting ceremony and has her invited to his parents for dinner the next night before she knows what hit her. The man is good looking and kind but she has learned from Jimmy and her own father, men don’t stay around.

    Kyle has to prove he is different than the men in Lauren’s life who have hurt her, and if nothing else he loves a challenge. He has built a big home and now he knows he wants Lauren and Kristen to be part of his family and to live there with him.

    This story has more to it than the rich Santa Claus meets struggling single mother. Kyle has a past he overcame and Lauren had a past she still needs to deal with.

    A book for all hearts!, April 12, 1999
    By 

    All I Want for Christmas Is You is a gem of a book. Kristen wants a daddy for christmas and she’s picked Kyle. While Kyle struggles to convince Lauren that he is the answer to her hearts dreams, he must also come to terms with ghosts of his own. Lauren can’t give into to anything less than true love, it wouldn’t be fair to her daughter or her heart. Can Kristen’s Santa Claus come through with the daddy she wants, the man her mother wants and the family Kyle wants? From the moment Kristen sits on Santa’s lap until she gets her Christmas wish, theis book is one page after another of emotion, love, and good clean fun. Lisa Mondello has made her debut a sparkling one. All I Wnat For Christmas Is You is not to be missed, no matter what time of year it is.
