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.

An irrepressible optimist, Chautona sees everything through a kaleidoscope of It’s a Wonderful Life sprinkled with fairy tales. Find her at chautona.com and say howdy—if you can remember how to spell her name.

Christa has a great sense of humor and extensive experience with accents, particularly those of the Southern United States and Great Britain.

More from Christa
Christmas on Breakers Point is written by Chautona Havig and Narrated by Christa DelSorbo. This is the kick off to the Independence Island Series. This book is part of a series written by multiple authors. I was blessed to be able to listen to this via audio book. I don't listen to a lot via audio books. However, this one was perfect to listen to with all of the traveling that I have done recently. It was also fun to read/listen to a Christmas story during the warm summer months.
In this story we meet Mallory Barrows. She finds out that her uncle does not have much time to live and wants to give him a Christmas that he will never forget. She returns to the island where she spent her summers determined to make it the best holiday ever. You can tell that Mallory and her uncle are close. They had a close bond. My heart broke to think that this was the end for them.
I love that the author was able to tackle a tough subject such as cancer. This book is not completely light hearted. It does deal with heavy subjects. The author handles it all beautifully and tactfully. Her descriptions of the island makes you feel like you are sitting there with the wind blowing in your face.
I am a huge fan of this author. She is able to write across many genres. This story is filled with action, suspense, mystery, and a smidge of romance. As always the author has written a unique story. If you have never read a book by this author you are missing out.
As for the narration, I can listen to Christa DelSorbo speak all day. Her voice is calming and flows nicely. I love the way she read this book. She has a gift of speech. I hope to hear more from her in the future.
I received a copy of this book through the Celebrate Lit blogging program, all thoughts are my own.
