Publisher's Summary

It’s Tessa and Weston’s first Christmas together, and Tessa is determined to make it the best holiday ever. But when her estranged mother shows up with a suitcase and plans to stay for two weeks, Tessa’s hopes are shattered. 

Bitter from the past and still holding a grudge, Tessa is in no mood to give her mother a second chance. The holiday season may be a time of reconciliation with family, but Tessa believes her mother will never change. Why get close when she’s just going to leave again? Tessa realizes there is only one way to save this Christmas: Avoid her mother as much as possible.

With the best intentions in mind, Tessa chooses to not tell her mother about Weston’s disability. But when they meet face-to-face, Tessa is mortified and ashamed by her mother’s insensitive remarks. Weston begins to think he is the real cause of Tessa’s shame. His old demons resurrect to haunt him with doubts: What if, one day, Tessa stops loving him because of his disability?

Determined to prove his love for her, Weston makes it his mission to be the best boyfriend ever and works to reunite Tessa with her mother. Meanwhile, Tessa plots elaborate ways to avoid “mother-daughter time” at all costs. One scheme leads to another, until Tessa finds herself tangled in a web of deceit - and, worst of all, lying to Weston.

When the secrets between them force Tessa and Weston to face their greatest fears, they must confront the inescapable question: Is true love worth the risk of heartbreak? Is it ever too late to forgive and start over?

The Best Christmas Ever is a heartwarming holiday follow-up to 100 Days of Sunlight by Abbie Emmons. You’ll love this touching story of forgiveness, family, and first love.

This book is rated PG for mild language and thematic elements. No strong language. Recommended for ages 13+.

A taste of bliss

Sweeter than icing sugar, but addictive as salty chips. Like a fresh orange after a good game, or a drink station on a fun run. It was intense, but it was good, like life should be all the time but rarely is.

Stunning!!

Thank you Abbie for the book of the season! A great sequel to “100 Days of Sunlight” that doesn’t disappoint to inspire joyous Christmas cheer! A clean YA must read like her debut novel. Tessa and Weston are more adorable than I imagined as a couple with their own sweet moments and challenges.
Definitely recommend reading from Abbie Emmons if you enjoy listening to sunlight.

Perfect sequence for these lovebirds ❤

I absolutely loved every second of it! It's a perfect sequel for Tess&Wes, and it made me laugh and cry again and again, just like 100 days of sunlight. In fact, this book added even more layers to the characters so they both have become even more relatable to me. It is truly cozy and cute just like I was expecting it. Can’t wait to grab the printed copy as well. But honestly, the narration just makes it so magical and easy to dive into, that I just had to start again with the audiobook first, like the first time. Thanks, Abbie, this was a real cozy and fun Christmas treat ❤
