Publisher's Summary

Life isn’t always sweet, even for girls called Candy.

Candice Parker’s life has never been easy. Plagued by losses and setbacks, each day is a struggle for the petite brunette and her young son. Last year, a tragedy forced her to accept the help of a man she had refused to even date. Today, she’s ready to take the next step, but will his rich and powerful mother allow it?

Gerald Ford had always kept things simple. He had lived a fast and furious lifestyle with no intentions of slowing down. However, when he finally decides he’s ready to take the plunge, it seems that the entire world is conspiring against them. Will his mother Eve be their saving grace, or will she be the thing that brings his relationship with Candy to an end?

Sweet short story

This is a sweet short story but (spoiler alert) the mother in law came around way too easily for it to be believable.

I received a copy of this audiobook at my request in exchange for this honest review.

Short and Sweet

Samantha Jacobey pulled me in with this short, sweet book. I really enjoyed this story and am looking forward to hearing the next one in the series. Christine Kelly performed the book excellently. She added the right emotions. I could feel Candy's frustration with Gary's mom. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I will definitely listen to the next book by this author and narrator.

Lovely story!

This is the 2nd book in the Sweet Christmas Series but it stands alone. It was a lovely nontraditional family story. Not your typical romance book full of passion. I very much enjoyed it. Nicely read by the narrator. I was gifted a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

Sweet Holiday!

As Candice and Gary's relationship grows, they decide the next step is marriage. They are perfect together, and Gary is so good with Candice's son Dakota. Who would ever want to throw a wrench into their happiness? Things can never be that easy, as in this installment we get to know a little more background about Gary and his family. I love this kind of series, it gives you a bits and pieces to put together as we go along! Jacobey is on to something with her yearly installments, and now that Candy and Gary have gotten over this obstacle, I can't wait to see where they are next year.

Christine Kelly narrates this short and I loved it. It's my first narration by her, and though not a long story, she is well paced and her voices are perfect for each character. She can easily switch between characters, and I especially loved the interactions she voiced between Candy and Eve. Flawless changes and very entertaining.

Interfering Family...Insecurities

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
Candy is a young single mother of a boy with special needs. She ran off the rails when her father died and became pregnant. She has started to put her life together, and supports her son and mother.
Gerry is a firefighter when he meets Candy..he is interested but she isn’t until life throws her a curve ball and him an opportunity.
Likeable couple who have family (his mother) that throw up roadblocks.
A story of building and working at finding family and a life and people you love.
The narrator did a good job with voices, emotions and timing.
An enjoyable book, second i the series, but I have read the first and this wasn’t a problem

Recommended

Over all a good short story. It was obvious that there was more to the story before this one took place. The segue was fairly smooth and the main points were covered. Because of this I let go some of my concerns regarding the character development which I considered lacking. It also meant there seemed to be more 'narration' than I prefer.

The narration was good I liked the various voices and inflections and pacing were in keeping with the story.

I felt a stiltness to the story whether this is a result of the way it was written. Trying to get a lot of information un a short amount of time or from the narration. This was annoying at times.

I received Christmas Eve for free in exchange for an unbiased review.
