About the Book

Book:  Christmas on Breakers Point
Series: The Independence Island, Prequel
Author: Chautona Havig and Christa DelSorbo
Genre: Christian Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 1, 2020


One man’s last Christmas wish might change two lives forever.

Mallory Barrows has one last Christmas with her uncle. She’s determined to make it the best one he’s ever had.

She knows when she asks what he wants as his final gift, it won’t be a tie or a new mug. He won’t need those where he’s going, and he’s quite happy about that.

Mallory just didn’t think he wanted a miracle wrapped in paper and tied with a shiny red bow!

In a twist on a “last chance romance,” Christmas on Breakers Point introduces a new series featuring five islands, six authors, and a boatload of happily-ever-afters.

Christmas on Breakers Point is the introductory book to the Independence Islands Series.

My Thoughts

I have read a few of the books in the Independence Island series but I have always wondered about the character of Mallory and her beginnings. This is her story and it was not what I expected. While it is a lovely story it definitely not the lighthearted read I was expecting but rather an emotional one. It definitely made me tear up a few times. Chautona has a way at bringing all the emotions but bringing in that faith element that always leaves you in deep thought which I appreciate. 

I should mention that this was an audiobook "read". Although I enjoyed the benefits of being able to listen to it while I washed dishes or drove I can't say I am a fan of audiobooks. There is just something special about holding a book in your hands.  That being said the narrator was spectacular she truly brings the island to life. 

My Rating: 3 Stars ~ Liked it

I received a copy of this book through Celebrate Lit. I was not required to post a positive review. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.

About the Author

Chautona Havig

Author of the bestselling Aggie and Past Forward series, Chautona Havig lives in an oxymoron, escapes into imaginary worlds that look startlingly similar to ours and writes the stories that emerge. An irrepressible optimist, Chautona sees everything through a kaleidoscope of It’s a Wonderful Life sprinkled with fairy tales. Find her at and say howdy—if you can remember how to spell her name.

Christa DelSorbo

“The voice of a friend.”

Christa has a great sense of humor and extensive experience with accents, particularly those of the Southern United States and Great Britain. Her most recent credits include: local live musical theatre actress and choreographer, regional radio commercial voice actress, and speaker for national business events.
