Review

A fun holiday read with not one, but two delicious heroes and two sassy heroines. .... This is a wonderful, feel-good story, perfect to get you in the holiday spirit!
-Amazon Review

I loved, loved, loved this holiday romance. It was absolutely perfect. It had the emotional ups and downs that every good romance should have and the characters were so wonderful. A Family for Christmas would make an absolutely wonderful movie. If you love holiday romance, you must read this one!
-Amazon Review
 
I Love Christmas. I love reading and watching romances set at Christmas. This book has the makings of a Hallmark or ABC family Christmas movie. I could hear the music in the background! Sweet and romantic with a bit of desire but not provocative or sleezy.

The writing in this novella is really excellent, the characters are charming and believeable, the plot is interesting and well planned.

Best Christmas story I have read this year. I felt right at home with the characters. I didn't want to put it down. A wonderful feel good story.
-Amazon Review
 
A Family a Christmas is just that, instant gratification. You get the electric connection, the sweet courting, the eventual breach of trust, and then the ever loving HEA!  Surprisingly, I did not find the story rushed. I really thought I would since it isn't overly long and there were two storylines. But the author is able to keep you from feeling like you are free falling, she allows for time to pass without unnecessary mundane details.
This is a perfect choice for a lazy Sunday read.

The writing in this novella is really excellent, the characters are charming and believeable, the plot is interesting and well planned. Two talented roommates, Lily and Maddie, are both nursing broken hearts and very reluctant to venture into a relationship. When Maddie loses her job, she meets a sweetly adorable 10-year-old orphan, named Annie. Annie and Lily soon become fast friends, too, bonded over their mutual love of fashion and design. Throw in Annie's two gorgeous, single uncles, Chase and Brent, and what do you think is going to happen?
I really enjoyed the two strong and gutsy, yet feminine, heroines whose friendship is so special and the two charming brothers who help heal Maddie and Lily's broken hearts. (sigh) I liked that the author was able to develop the characters personalities; they weren't just beautiful/handsome, they were good and kind and moral people.
The quality of the editing is extremely good; I saw no typos, misspellings, grammatical errors or formatting issues.
This gentle, sweet story is clean: no cussing, no explicit sex scenes. I got lucky and got this as a free download from Amazon, but it is definitely worth paying for.

The writing was good and the plot was cute without being totally unbelievable. It could have used some more plot development and relationship development between the lead characters. I didn't like that there were two romantic stories crammed into one book: they both could have stood on their own. Overall, a good quick read with cute characters.

This was everything I was looking for in a holiday read! This story is cute and charming. I have always been a big fan of the contemporary romances where the characters can fall in love at first sight and build a believable relationship throughout the book without the need for explicit love scenes. This book was mild-mannered in the regard that it did not contain sex scenes and yet the attraction between the characters was obvious and there was enough spark there to build an entire story around.

This book consists of two simultaneous love stories going on at the same time. As two of the characters are brothers and the female characters are roommate and best friends, the author was able to show the reader the internal feelings of those involved much more clearly and adequately than if the two sets of characters had not known each other.

This book has jerkish-ex boyfriends, gold-digging women, rich handsome men and intelligent women. There is a wonderful child and even a dog that makes this story a complete holiday joy, what is there not to love? Excellent book, Highly recommended.

This is a really nice romance book, I enjoyed it a lot.
Mona Ingram has a wonderful way of drawing you right into the story.
I like her writing style: not overly wordy/descriptive, and not underdeveloped, but just right for a good read.
There is more to this story than just man/woman, there is also a young orphan girl in the mix.
Reading this book will make you feel good!

NOTE: When I read this book the title was "Gift Wrapped For Christmas", which I think is a better title than "A Family For Christmas". Just my opinion.

I dislike explicit sex scenes in any book. Leave it to the imagination. To me it spoils the whole book. I could never recommend a book like this to a friend or family member. Other than that, it would have been a good read.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The characters were believable. The plot was written in such a way that when you came to the end of a chapter, you had to read on to the following chapter to see what happens next.
