Christmas on Breakers Point Audiobook Blog Tour: Book Review + Giveaway

 **I received a complimentary copy of the audiobook for consideration. All thoughts are my own. 

About the Book

Book:  Christmas on Breakers Point

Author: Chautona Havig and Christa DelSorbo

Genre: Christian Contemporary Romance

Release date: September 1, 2020


One man’s last Christmas wish might change two lives forever.

Mallory Barrows has one last Christmas with her uncle. She’s determined to make it the best one he’s ever had.

She knows when she asks what he wants as his final gift, it won’t be a tie or a new mug. He won’t need those where he’s going, and he’s quite happy about that.

Mallory just didn’t think he wanted a miracle wrapped in paper and tied with a shiny red bow!

In a twist on a “last chance romance,” Christmas on Breakers Point introduces a new series featuring five islands, six authors, and a boatload of happily-ever-afters.

Christmas on Breakers Point is the introductory book to the Independence Islands Series.

The Independence Island Series: Beach listens aren’t just for summer anymore.

My Thoughts

This review is a little bit of a different one for me in that I was given an audiobook copy to review. Frankly, while I certainly believe audiobooks have their place, for me personally, I don't tend to listen to them. I find that I tend to lose focus and am unable to follow the story as well and as such a written book will always be my go to choice. Keep that in mind as you read on. 

Still, I tried my best to pay attention and enjoy this one as much as I could. Like I said... audiobooks certainly have their place...I did enjoy being able to listen as I cleaned and got other things done. The story itself was quite enjoyable. This is a prequel to the Independence Islands series which is a fun series of romance stories written by a variety of Christian romance authors, all of which can be read (or listened to as the case may be) as standalone. I have enjoyed all of the stories I've read from the series so far, but of course being a huge fan of Christmas romances, this one definitely stuck out to me. I enjoyed the characters and felt the story was very well written and drew me in! The narration was done well and kept me interested as well. I did still have some trouble staying as focused as I would have with a typical book, but again this is my own issue and nothing to do with the story or the audiobook itself. 

If you're looking for a good audiobook and enjoy a little Christmas in July, this is certainly one worth checking out.

  1. Thank you for the review, sounds good.

  2. I totally agree with you. I know plenty of people that love audio books but I personally don't. I'm sure this is a great read!

  3. Sounds like a sweet story. I always have an audiobook going to listen on my daily walks.

  4. I totally get you. I used to have so much trouble with listening to audio, but I found that if I'm listening when I'm not doing something that makes me think about stuff. So, not while sorting paperwork, but yes while taking a walk or riding in the car. IT took a bit of training, but now I love it.
    Thanks for taking the time to listen and review!

  5. This sounds like a great beach read!

  6. Looks like an interesting book.
    Thanks for the contest.
