The most important thing you need to know about Elizabeth Kelly’s The Christmas Rescue is that the proceeds go to Zoe’s Animal Rescue. Zoe’s Animal Rescue is doing great work in Alberta and is well worth your currency whether you want to buy this romance or not. Elizabeth Kelly, in addition to being an author of steamy romances, is also a foster to mom to a number of cats and kittens. She also has some permanent residents including a handsome, cat loving, medically challenged Great Dane and ...more

Merry Christmas from Elizabeth Kelly and oh it was joyous.

Now you may be thinking "doesn't Elizabeth do a lot of pretend spouse/significant other stories?" Yes, she does but each is different. And I love that.

This one was so much fun and Ivy's Nana is hysterical. How she kept Nana from overpowering the story is testamount to her story telling abilities. The Christmas Rescue is fun and sexy and is a great holiday read.

There is one amazing perk to this book and she's donating 100% of her

I picked up this book when I heard the proceeds were going to an animal rescue. I’ve read this author’s works before so I knew I’d have to read it. I wasn’t disappointed. The characters are relatable and well fleshed out. The sexy scenes were tasteful and in no way distracted from the laugh out loud humor and light heartedness for a good, holiday read. I highly recommend this as some quick holiday fun.

Elizabeth Kelly is one of my faves, so I am thoroughly unsurprised that I adored this book. It's sweet without being saccharine and all the characters are terrific. However. A special shout out must be made to Nana, the sex-having, no shame feeling, best life living grandma. I want to be her NOW. This isn't as steamy as Kelly's other books but the chemistry is still very much present. It's a great winter read.

I love books based around the Holidays

This book is so good, it hooked me from the start!! I love how this author comes up with crazy scenarios that keep you guys and thinking wth just happened!! I love the chemistry between Ivy and Elias, I was rooting for them the whole book!! I would love this author to write a book about Bryce!! I love Ivy’s spunky Nana!! This book had me lol along the way!! I love how the author is donating all the proceeds to her local Rescue for animals!

The hero in this book is a vet, and Ivy's grandmother and her run a rescue and always take their animals to him. They've known each other for a while and they both have feelings for each other. Not wanting to disappoint his family he tells them that he's engaged and asked Ivy to go with him as his fake fiance. This book is not your typical Elizabeth Kelly story, but it was an awesomely, sweet, romantic read.

Really good story

I really enjoyed this book a lot. The storyline was sweet and interesting. The characters were well fleshed out and likable. And the animals in this story stole my heart. I would have given the book five stars but the ending was abrupt. If there had been an epilogue to wrap things up it would have been great. However, it's still an excellent read.

This was a great story. I loved the interaction between Ivy and Elias. I also loved all the secondary characters. I'm hoping for a follow-up about Bryce...and Alex, maybe? Nana was a hoot too. Overall, another great story by Elizabeth Kelly. Plus, it's wonderful that she's donating the proceeds to animals in need!

This may have been a short story but it did not lack any of the normal sass and steam that comes from this author! So fun!
