A Tangy Christmas Kiss is the second book in the Christmas Kiss series by Allyson R. Abbott. It is a sweet holiday romance that confirms that anything that can go wrong- will! There is hilarity, funny antics, language barriers, challenges, romance, and endearing characters. There was a lot more to this story than it may seem from first appearances. Melanie (Mel) had me intrigued right from the first page, as I followed her on her story. From the moment she gets the call from her mother as

A Tangy Christmas Kiss by Allyson R. Abbott is the second book in the Christmas Kiss series, it was just as whimsical, sweet, cheesy hallmarkly, as the first.

Not my first read by this author or this series, I read A prickly Christmas Kiss last year, so it's only fitting I keep going with this fun holiday series. Now before I get to into this review, I have to tell you that though this is a series, so far they read as standalones. So no worries about spoilers or reading out of order.

I have read a couple of books from this author and she always ends up surprising me. My favorite books are about Christmas and this author exceeded my expectations all over again. This is part of the Christmas Kiss series. They don’t have to be read in any order because they are a lot different couples. I was hooked on this book right from the beginning. It only took me a day to devour this magical book.

Mel loves her family and she can’t wait to spend Christmas with them. She is on her way back

This book is definitely a seasonal must read! A Tangy Christmas Kiss is the second book in the Christmas Kiss Series by Allyson R. Abbott. This story follows Melanie “Mel” on her curious adventure to Spain. Mel’s mother calls her out of the blue to ask her to go to Spain to help her Aunt while she recovers from surgery. So basically anything that could go wrong on this trip happens. The upside to this is the sexy man that sat next to her on the plan. He decides to help her even though he doesn’t ...more

A Tangy Christmas Kiss is the second book in Allyson R Abbott’s Christmas Kiss series. All these stories are standalones so you can pick them up in any order – it is the Christmas and Kisses that they have as the common element!
I love the way Allyson spins the story … she is warm and you feel invited into the story and it is so easy to briefly close your eyes and picture it all, smell it all, and hear it all … All the stories are perfect for holidays, they leave you starry eyed and feeling warm

I give A Tangy Christmas Kiss by Allyson R. Abbott, 4stars.

Mel's mother calls right before Christmas and talks her into a big favor -- to go to Spain to help out her aunt who is having surgery. She agrees, but little does she know just what she's in for. After too many days of travelling, and too many layovers, she misses the ride her aunt provided for her. She is alone and helpless in a country where she doesn't know the language. Relying on the help of strangers, she finally makes it to her au

Upon arriving at the airport, she gets some bad news, and has a big decisions to make. She takes the plunge and boards the plane anyway, and thus begin ...more

The travel to Spain seemed to take quite a while. On her way she meets a Spanish gentleman that she has language barrier issues with. Wanting to help Mel, he escorts her to her aunt's home. This is where Mel realizes that what she was imagining ab

I just went on a total reading binge and poured through both Allyson R. Abbott’s A Prickly Christmas Kiss and her A Tangy Christmas Kiss. What can I say, they were like the sweetest of chocolates for a choco-holic (which I am, by the way). And that’s not even counting the fact that they are Christmas romances and I totally adore (truly deeply adore) Christmas romances. Read the publisher’s blurb for a perfectly good synopsis of what these stories about that doesn’t spoil anything. I frankly don’ ...more

This book was beyond sweet. I love Christmas books. They give me all the warm, fuzzy feelings that make everything seem right in the world. This is book 2 in a four book series by this author. Our main gal, Mel, flies to Spain to house sit for her Aunt at her mom’s request. She is beyond confused as to why her own mother cannot do this, but since she plans on spending her days relaxing on the beach, she goes without hesitation.

A Tangy Christmas Kiss by Allyson R. Abbott is the second book in the Christmas Kiss series. This book can be read as a stand-alone.
This book is a fun and lovable holiday romance about a woman trying to help out her family. It isn’t as straight forward as it should be and hilarity soon follows.
I really enjoyed this book because it was one of those stories that you could easily just lose yourself in for a few hours. You can turn off reality and just enjoy a well written and entertaining story.
