Book Tour & Giveaway: The Perfect Gift by Dani-Lyn Alexander

The Perfect Gift
by Dani-Lyn Alexander.
Audience/Genre: Contemporary Romance, Holiday.
Publication: October 13th 2014 by Pocket Star.
It’s the season of second chances in this heartwarming, contemporary holiday romance where two single parents find each other—and another chance at love—in the most unexpected of places.

’Tis the night before Christmas…and businessman and single father Jason is scrambling to find the dollhouse of the season for his seven-year-old daughter Emily. But when he finally strikes gold at an obscure toy store, he’s met with resistance—literally, as from the aisle across from him a beautiful woman named Leah is grabbing onto the dollhouse box with similar intent, determined to get the same Christmas present for her own daughter.

Desperate not to let the other win, Jason and Leah forge a pact: stay together until they find the same dollhouse at a different toy store. It sounds simple, but ten stores and many hours later, they still come up empty. They might not be finding another dollhouse, but they sure are finding a lot to talk about and, as their mutual attraction grows, the unlikely pair finds the greatest holiday gift of all—love.

Reviewed by Kelly.

This is a lovely very short story of 80 pages about 2 single parents trying to find the same gift for their respective daughters. The gift is very popular and only one is available. They both grab it at the same time. Jason and Leah strike an agreement for each to pay for half and then go shopping for another doll house together. As Leah and Jason shop on the Christmas Eve Eve and then Christmas Eve, they learn about each other and slowly start to become something more than friends.

This book is really a cute family friendly story to get you in the mood for Christmas. It shows the love a parent has for their child and what lengths they would go to for them. I loved watching the story of finding happiness in the holidays and finding a second chance at love after your life has become so focused on the child and never on yourself. I love that! Your child becomes first and then a chance encounter brings you into someone else’s life that gives you hope for your own personal happiness.

For fans of the movie, Jingle All the Way, a lot of snow, crazy madness driving in snow, laughter (oh, I had myself belly laughing a few times in this book), popular Christmas gifts, ice skating, short stories and finding love than this might be for you.
