A Christmas Prayer – Kimberla Lawson Roby
Alexis Fletcher hasn’t had a merry Christmas in five years-not since her mother passed away. Every December she remembers the joy her mother brought to everyone during the holiday season and feels the pain of her absence, even more so now that she and her sister are barely speaking. More than anything, Alexis wishes her family could be whole again.
However, with her wedding fast approaching, Alexis might just be ready to make some holiday memories with a new family of her own. Alexis’s fiance, Chase Dupont, is everything she ever dreamed of. He’s kind, handsome, fully supportive of Alexis’s career, and the CEO of a large company. But outside forces threaten to derail this happy couple from ever reaching the altar.
As tensions rise, a dramatic event causes Alexis to question everything. Will fate give her what she needs to finally embrace the season that has brought her so much pain? Will Alexis get her wish for a happy holiday? Or will her Christmas prayer go unanswered?
If you believed in love then this is a story for you. Alexis Fletcher has been depressed for the past five years because of her mother’s passing. This Christmas was not in any different. Alexis is getting married to Chase DuPont. Chase is successful, handsome, and everything Alex dream of. Geneva was the mother-in-law from hell. But she kept the story interesting. Something happens that makes the story goes through some twist and turns. Why is Alexis questioning everything?
The theme of the story is love, anxiety, depression, family, and mourning of a parent. The characters of the story were real, relatable, and very detailed. The dialogue was understandable and very vivid. The story line was convincing, relatable, and went well smoothly.

This is a funny loving and a short story. I give this book five stars. Can’t wait to read more from this author.
