Publisher's Summary

Will her cat ruin her Christmas chance for love?

Bella Tallahan has always hidden behind her twin sister, Tally. She was born with cerebral palsy and even though she has finished college, she lives vicariously through her sister's adventures.

It worked, until her sister married writer Lucky Lenigan, and Bella developed a crush on Lucky's brother - a bad boy with a shady past.

Chance Martin made one mistake growing up - one that landed him in prison. After his release, he spends his days restoring antique furniture and his nights alone.

When Mr. Klutz, Bella's fat tabby cat, wreaks havoc in the furniture workshop, Chance confronts Bella and finds himself with a dilemma. He's not the right kind of guy for a woman with disabilities, but at the same time, he can't get her out of his mind.

Will the trail of destruction left by one naughty cat bring Bella her Christmas chance for love? Can Chance rise above his past and convince Bella that she is truly worth loving? Or will the secret he is keeping horrify Bella enough to send her back into hiding?

Author's Note: Although part of the Christmas Creek Romance Series, Her Christmas Chance is a complete and standalone story. Bella Tallahan appears in a previous story, Lucky in Laguna, where her sister Tally Tallahan meets and falls in love with Lucky Lenigan.

    "A magical Christmas Story"

    Bella and Tally are twins. Tally has recently Married Lucky and moved to Christmas Creek with him. Bella has Cerebral Palsy and is ready to live on her own so her parents let her since she will be in an Inlaws cottage in Tally's backyard.
    Bella has a sweet Poodle named Miss Kooky and an atrocious cat called Mr. Klutz.

    Mr. Klutz has it in for Chance Martin an ex-con and antique furniture refinisher. Every chance he gets, he goes into the shop and wreaks havoc on Chance's work.
    Bella has been Crushing on Chance since the wedding and Chance has been crushing on Bella, but since she moved to Christmas Creek, she has been standoffish. He figures she found out about his being an ex-con.

    One thing I like about Rachel's romances is that there is a lot going on. I like to hear about the wood, and furniture Chance is fixing up, and about Bella's struggles, we also get a little backdrop from the first story(Tally and Lucky to catch us up if we haven't read that story (and make us want to.) We get hints of Chances crime, his background and there is usually a magical twist somewhere. I love that Mr. Klutz is pretty much the main character here causing all sorts of conflict.
    There is some heat, but it's relatively clean, and sensual without any details. Just enough to make it sexy.

    Karen Marcin did an excellent job narrating the story. She gave Bella a voice showing her disability, She made the magic seem a bit eerie and magical, she showed passion, empathy, and an overall great job.

    If you like a good romance, cute animals, hot ex-cons, women with disabilities, broken characters, holiday stories, and a great allover read I highly recommend this.

    Story
    "Great Love Story!!"

    I think this is the first book I have read/listened to that had a person with special needs as the heroine. I loved how the author depicted Bella and then loved how the narrator brought her to life. Yes, she has challenges, but she is also a very capable and independent person who is looking to live her life and all the while hopes that love might be in the mix as well.
    Chance comes from a broken home and doesn't believe that anyone could love him after he spent 10 years in prison and came from such a broken family.

    I think I listened to this book start to finish in one day. The story was compelling and the narrator did a fabulous job of bringing each and every character to life. Highly recommend this book and the author!

    "Love is Forgiveness"

    A wonderful story of an ex-con and a disabled woman, both feeling unworthy of love. But love knows no bounds and accepts us as we are. I received a complimentary audio and I am voluntarily reviewing.

    Story
    "Her Christmas Chance"

    Another beautiful, heartwarming , uplifting , emotional story written by Rachelle Ayala.

    Two people,each feeling unworthy of love, find each other (thanks to sassy Mr. Klutz the cat) and help each other overcome a disability and misconceptions. Each learns to accept themselves as they are and forgive others for their nasty treatment of them.

    I loved Chance and Bella in this story and how Miss Kookie (dog) and Mr. Klutz made me smile. A great story not only for Christmas time but year round and one we can all learn from.

    The narrator, Kate Marcin does a really nice job of reading the story. Never boring and her impression of the cat was hysterical.

    Her Christmas Chance
    : Rachelle Ayala

    What happens when a woman with physical disabilities meets a man with emotional problems. Add in a cranky cat a little puppy and the magic of Christmas. Her family is overprotective except the jealous brother that wants her to hurt. His family keeps his secrets. Can they find happiness together or will their problems keep them apart? I love Christmas Creek, and want more of these stories.


    The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Kate Marcin brings the story to life.



    I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    "Surprised by this sweet love story against th odds"

    This book caught me by surprise. I know Rachelle Ayala writes a very sweet love story, with surprises always included. This one has an unusual slant - the two people have "issues" they need to come to terms with within themselves and with each other, or possibly with how other people want them to see each other.
    It is a story about finding love but also finding your own place in the world.
    It is sassy sweet.
    Speaking of sassy - there is this uncontrollable cat. I worried about the cat for the entire book!
    As if this "odd couple" doesn't have enough going against them, family members trying to influence their paths in life, town gossips, and more, a bit of Christmas magic injects itself.
    You'll have to decide for yourself what really happens or doesn't.
    Happily - the cat makes it all the way to the end.

    The narration was perfect for this book.

    I did accept a copy for review. The opinions are my own.

    Story
    "...every teardrop worth crying"

    For me reading a story is like watching a movie. In my mind there's an image of how the scene will play out, but it doesn't always end up that way. Her Christmas Chance is like a wonderful gift. It inspires and entertains while waking up even the blackest of hearts. The words were all there, the beauty was evident, all that Bella and Chance needed was the perfect voice to bring their fairy tale to life. Kate Marcin proved the right person for that tough job. It's only fitting that since the author put so much of herself on display that the narrator do likewise. Ms. Marcin made every teardrop worth crying and every smile a well earned reward.

    Story
    "An Emotional Journey"

    Rachelle Ayala has done it again with bringing characters to life who have flaws but are still lovable! Bella has cerebral palsy and Chance has been in prison. They had met before at her sister and his brother's wedding. They had hit it off then and both had a crush on each other. Now Chance is living with his step-father next door to Bella. Bella's cat, Mr. Klutz, keeps getting into Chance's furniture repair shop and destroying his work. Bella is learning to live on her own and Chance is still trying to overcome his reputation from being in prison. This is an emotional story with both of them and their families coming to understand each other. Rachelle brings real life situations into her books and sheds light on disabilities and different life experiences. Kate Marcin does a wonderful job narrating. You will enjoy this book, I'm sure! I received a free copy in exchange for my review.
