All I Want for Christmas Kick-Off Package

About the Book

Book: All I Want for Christmas

Author: Fay Lamb

Genre: Christian Fiction

Release date: November 21, 2021

A wedding headed for disaster,

A crime syndicate bent on destruction,

And a bunch of hungry alligators.

Knee deep in preparation for her best friend’s Christmas wedding, Abigail Brewster reels when her estranged younger sister returns to Mullet Harbor. She brings secrets, intrigue, and trouble along with her—a crime syndicate set on goals that would destroy the harbor. And Abigail is in the middle of their scheme.

Remy Arneaux doesn’t understand the reason for Susan Brewster’s return, and maybe that’s due to the brain fog from his concussion. But he does know enough not to trust her and not to let her near Abigail. The self-centered woman would only hurt her . . . again. Abigail has had enough pain, even from him. Still, he made a promise to escort someone else to the wedding. And with the promise is a secret that begins to rip his relationship with Abigail apart.

According to Mayor Herb’s edict, nothing is allowed to mar this occasion for his only granddaughter. Not heartbreak, not tirades from a spoiled young woman, and not threats from organized crime.

But what about their attempts to make good on their threats . . .

More from Fay

Writing is supposed to be fun, right? Well, for a while, writing was the last thing I wanted to do. And when you have two series contracted and many other books waiting in line to be written, that’s a big problem.


I’m sure that I’m not the only person on the face of this earth who recently placed fun in a jar and hid it away for at least a week, maybe a month, maybe even a year. Heck, some of us may have fun still hidden away.


I truly thought I’d lost my sense of humor. And then I sat down to be purposeful in my writing. Abigail tiptoed onto the page (literally), and then the quirky denizens of Mullet Harbor worked their magic and the story unfolded before me. Abigail and her hero, Remy, may have had some difficulties in life, but for me, I had the time of my life.


When I finished writing All I Want for Christmas, I sat back and I marveled that I had not lost that sense of humor, especially not in my writing. I recalled that in all my writing life, when things were bleakest, my writing brought a smile, and I have always wanted it to bring a smile to others.


Mission accomplished. Humor has been removed from the hiding place and firmly installed back into the funny bone, and my prayer is that the readers will allow Mullet Harbor to bring a little humor—and suspense—to their lives.


There is quite a bit going on in this book and I would highly recommend reading the first in this series. I had to stop and go back to read the first book so I could follow the latest installment. Now that I’m caught up. I see what conflicts are going on. The author pulls no punches in this suspenseful story. 

Mullet Harbor has always been a place to relax at and enjoy family. Someone is trying to cause chaos and the crime syndicate is somehow involved. What I thought was going to be a fun wedding to read about turns into danger and non stop action.

Abby is still over the moon in love with Remy but for some reason they  have yet to share their feelings. I was irritated that this scenario dragged on throughout the story. Nothing bothers me more than characters too unsure of themselves to share how they feel. What if Abby loses her chance and sees Remy attracted to someone else? 

Well that little drama going on is put aside for now as I was more interested in Abby’s sister coming back to town. She brings with her secrets, danger to many and an attitude that carries an “I don’t care about anyone,” that rattles cages. Susan is not wanted there but she is there to hopefully unravel the harbor mess and whatever else criminally she is involved in. 

With all that is going on, there is something to celebrate. A wedding is sure to bring joy back to the town. It’s a tall order but the bride and groom must be protected and well I guess everyone around  them as well. Abby has her hands full making the cake and trying to stay safe. Who wants to harm her and why? 

The interaction between sisters Abby and Susan are emotional and heartbreaking. Susan lashes out at Abby and tries to manipulate her once again. The one thing Susan is known for is she does not lie. The words of anger come out and penetrate Abby. They are meant to injure her and render Abby a mess so that Susan can get her way. Oh how I loved this new Abby who stood up to her sister. She tells her that she forgives her but will never trust her. Now I see that Abby is stronger than I thought. 

Get ready for sone laughs that come at the expense of a bridal shower, a corruption that tries to take out a town, love in the air and God’s everlasting  promise to never leave us nor forsake us. He protects those in need and reveals the enemy to face their punishment. I loved the ending and am happy that the author cleared about a few questions I had as to who was behind all the destruction going on in a town ready to find peace and joy. 

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
