A Wedding for Christmas by Rachelle Ayala

A female soldier and a donor from Kelly’s past threaten to derail Kelly and Tyler's wedding.

A wedding for christmas

The heartwarming conclusion to A Veteran's Christmas Series!

Kelly Kennedy and Tyler Manning are planning a Christmas wedding, and her six-year-old daughter, Bree, is worried about being the perfect flower girl. Complications arise when Tyler gets reacquainted with a female soldier he rescued back in Afghanistan. Meanwhile, Kelly gets an urgent message from the man who fathered Bree, asking for a big favor.

With their Christmas wedding looming, Kelly and Tyler must tie up all loose ends while Bree risks her life to do a good deed before Santa’s sleigh hits their roof. Will love, faith, and a Christmas miracle be enough to keep their family together?


While A Wedding for Christmas can be enjoyed as a standalone, you'll get more of the relationship aspect between Kelly, Tyler, and Bree as well as the exciting adventure of Tyler's survival at the hands of terrorists by reading A Father for Christmas and A Pet for Christmas first.

Sample text:

“MAMA, WHEN I’M THE FLOWER girl, do I have to kiss the ring bearer?” my six-year-old daughter, Bree, asks as she preens in front of the mirror in her sunshiny flower girl dress.
It’s three weeks before my Christmas wedding, and I’m at the bridal shop for my wedding gown fitting.
The tailor chuckles under her breath, and my sister, Ella, puts her hands on Bree’s shoulders, admiring her. “You don’t have to kiss anyone you don’t want to.”
Bree hooks a sly glance my way, then looks back at her aunt. “I might want to if I know who the ring bearer is.”
Last year, when I got engaged two days before Christmas, I thought I was being smart or cute or maybe even cool to have a wedding on Christmas Day.
Now that the time draws closer, I’m more frantic than ever. I work full time as a fraud investigator and Tyler Manning, my fiancé, travels around the world as a motivational speaker and fundraiser for both veterans charities and ones helping children orphaned by war.
We have two children, Bree, six, and a son, Arman, who’ll turn one two days before Christmas. Talk about a pile on: birthday party, Christmas, and a wedding.
I blink and realize both Bree and Ella are staring at me, waiting for a reply about the ring bearer. It’s the one thing I left for Tyler to arrange.
“It doesn’t matter who the ring bearer is,” I say to Bree. “You’re not going to have to kiss him anyway.”
At six, she’s way too young to be thinking about boys, especially kissing them.
“I want to know who he is, so I can practice walking with him.” Bree gets that determined look I know so well. “I want to be the best flower girl, ever.”
