Leilani has had a tough time of it. She’s taken gave of her resentful mother for some time and now that she’s passed away, she’s taken her ashes to be spread over her homeland – Hawaii. The timing couldn’t be better since it is Christmas and she’s alone. A mysterious letter from a long lost relative only gives her more inspiration to travel back “home.” Through some sort of divine intervention, she ends up winning an upgraded stay, getting a wonderfully entertaining and energetic tour guide, and getting trapped in an elevator with a sexy guy. OK, so maybe she didn’t’ want to get trapped in an elevator, but it certainly doesn’t end up hurting.
For Kale, getting trapped in that elevator is just what his newly single, overworked soul needs. Leilani has a spirit that warms all those around her. He finds himself sucked into her world and easily accepts his new role. She quickly finds her old family, new family, and a lot of drama, too! There’s a bit of action, some bad people, but this story had me smiling and laughing, enjoying the true “spirit of Christmas.” If you’re looking for a good story to read around the holidays, this is it!

"Loveable Christmas Angel" by Mimi Barbour beautiful told Christmas paranormal novella read. This was one of those reads that you will not be able to put down until the end. This author really worked her magic with this read. We find Leilani Taylor has traveled from her hometown in Canada to Hawaii where she is taking her mother's ashes to Waikiki and also visiting a aunt that she didn't know of until the death of her mother. Upon arriving in Hawaii Leilani will be befriended by a man named Pi who was one 'enigmatic taxi driver (or was he?)... Pi let's Leilani know that she had won a competition and would be staying a 'one of the most luxurious hotels on the island.' Later Leilani later meets a a wealthy businessman who owned the Hotel named Kale...to which there will be a immediately attraction. This storyline will really pick up as the author really presents the reader with a truly amazing read. From the incident in the elevator, meeting Leilani's aunt who is ill who wants her niece to take care of her five year old grandchild (Mano) and wait there will be more from Kale who was owner of the Jordan Hotel Chain....this is where I say you must pick up "Loveable Christmas Angel" to see where the author will take the reader. It will be a exciting read and in Hawaii that miracles and nightmares start happening to Leilani. What was this all about? Will Leilani be up for the challenge that will be put on her? The characters were all well developed, colorful and likable. Well, their was one that wasn't and I will let you read to find out who that particular person was. I found the ending of this story was perfect...'coming straight from heaven' to make this one special 'angel Christmas story.' If you are looking for a sweet and touching novel you have come to the right place for "Loveable Christmas Angel" would be recommended as a perfect read for you especially during the holiday season.
The story begins quickly, & one of it's strengths is it has beautiful imagery, but the story falls short in many areas which is frustrating. The main character is half Hawaiian, but speaks like she's confused as to why she's not in a Victorian novel or a self-help book, comes from Canada, & is so "sweet, gentle, nice, & attractive but endearingly klutzy" who then goes through the personal uncertainty that she's not good enough for the male protagonist, & is constantly going against her normal behavior, but does so without 2nd guessing herself or hesitation, & on & on until you feel like she is several multiple characters all mashed together with multiple issues & faults, but nothing was truly focused on or was a part of her personality for her to work on, learn from, overcome, etc., it was just there to throw another curve or bump in the road, & it became tiring.
Some of the backgrounds & explanations are spotty; she initially traveled to the island to settle her mother's ashes & meet/assist her aunt, & unless I totally missed that part, I didn't read the resolution about the ashes. Even the burial of her aunt was kind of skipped over; did she place the sisters together? The male "angel" was a nice, comforting addition to the book, his personality was enjoyable, but even his story leaves you with more questions than answers. I understand who he was in the end, but his promise to her mother than she'd be happy happened when again? And if her mom was so worried about her happiness, why'd she spend her life trying to make everyone around her miserable, esp. if her end goal was her daughter's happiness? It's like every character was placed there to have a singular purpose in moving the main character's story along, & then was written out to make it smoother. The mother? To give this sweet woman trials, & to make her selfless, angelic behavior more obvious, (& to get her to the island). Her aunt drops some info about her mom, leaves her with a new reason to stay on the island, & promptly passes. The evil ex girlfriend is there to cause a misunderstanding, but really doesn't impact anyone or anything & is no real threat. The daughter that was presumed dead then reappears is just there to cause last minute tension & drama, but leaves very easily. There's a lot of hop-skip-jumping in reasoning and story telling, & the reader is just meant to make the leap & ignore any missing blanks. The main male character flips from aggravated anti-woman to heroic love interest with little-to-no real interaction or time to fall in love between the two protagonists, but she's pretty, & he can "see" her honesty, & she doesn't mock his "dabbling."
The main female character is from Canada, & yet, she says "aye," not the standard Canadian "eh?" which makes her come across as a pirate. I've yet to meet or speak with a Canadian who doesn't say "eh?" but I have NEVER encountered one who says "aye," and while that might just come across as a spelling preference for some who can't hear the tonal different, it truly isn't. As a story can only set the scene & paint the picture of the tale to speak to the readers by it's words, word choice MATTERS. Captain Jack Sparrow says "aye," but Candian's say "eh?" (frequently, in fact).
Also, the author has multiple places throughout the story where she turns a statement into a question by her use of a question mark. I don't know if the editor just missed it, or if the author really thought those areas were questions, but...they aren't. When greeting someone, who asks "It's nice to meet you?" as if they aren't sure, or are looking for validation? Nobody, which is why people don't respond with, "Yes, you're right, it is VERY nice to meet me."
The smidgen of Christmas in the book may qualify it as a holiday read under the strictest parameters, & at the end, it was confusing for a minute, as it almost appeared as though the "angel" might have been Santa, but then it clarified in a roundabout way who the angel was, which in it's own reveal brought more questions to the reader that weren't answered. When it comes down to it, if you're looking for a real holiday read, solid, satisfying, & holiday-filled, this isn't what you're looking for.

I have reviewed and commented on this wonderful story in my blog. This is an enchanting book,unputdownable. The setting is glorious and a gift to us shivering here in the UK The characters are vibrant and fairly leap of the page. Leilani is an engaging heroine and Kale Jorndan a gorgeous hunk. The little boy and Pil are so heartwarming. This is a book that will be popular at any time of the year with a message of love in an exciting story.
I have read many of this author's books and as always Mimi has produced another enthralling book. Look forward to the next one.
