Publisher's Summary

After the hard winter of 1888 ended Alby Boyle’s work as a Nebraska ranch hand, he returned to New York City in search of his long-lost family. His mother and brothers are nowhere to be found, however, and after Alby’s years of absence, Five Corners no longer feels like home. His prospects seem as dim as the nighttime alleys.

When Alby pauses to admire an angel ornament in a department store window’s Christmas display, he meets Xeno Varnham-Summerfield. Wealthy, handsome, and enthusiastic, Xeno brings Alby some temporary cheer. But for Alby to achieve his dreams of love and a real home, well, that may take a bit of holiday magic.

Sweet Christmas story

This was my first book in the Christmas Angel series, and it won't be my last. Each book in the series can be read/listened to as a standalone as they are complete and separate stories.

Summerfield's Angel is set in New Yok in 1888, Where Alby Boyle has arrived from Nebraska a in search of his family. So much has changed since he was forced to leave. He spies a Christmas Anel in a window store, and while mesmerised by the ornament he's almost run over by a trolley - but is saved at the last moment by the handsome and charming young Xeno Varnham.

On the outside they seem to have nothing in common, Xeno comes from wealth with all the privilege that entails while Alby is a ranch hand from Nebraska with a simple outlook in life; food in his belly and a warm place to stay. Despite their differences they keep running into each other and as things usually goes, one thing leads to another...

I wasn't totally sold on K.C. Kelly's narration of this book, mainly because it felt flat and uninspiring. From the beginning I found myself spacing out and forgetting to listen, On the other hand, I loved that he had such distinct voices for Alby and Xeno, there was never any question who was speaking and that part was easy to follow along.

In do think I'd have enjoyed this story much more, had I read it instead of listening to it. Because as it was I never connected to it or felt invested in the characters. Which is a shame, because all things considered, this is a story that I should have loved.

Summerfield's Angel was sweet holiday story where Christmas miracles do happen and love really can conquer all.

A copy of this book was generously provided by the author in exchange for an honest review for Love Bytes.

Thoroughly enjoyed my trip back to the 1880's

Delightfully entertaining Christmas story. Well written with great characters and just enough spice.

KC Kelly does a great job bringing the characters to life.

This is book 2 in the series, the angel ornament being the common element amongst the stories.
Each book can be read/listened to on its own.
