Today it is my absolute pleasure to join the blog tour for the delicious festive read – Christmas Wishes at the Chocolate Shop by Jessica Redland

My Review

Wow what a delectable read oozing with fabulous chocolate creations and wonderful characters. As soon as we were introduced to the lovely Charlee I just knew I would love her and as I continued to read my heart broke for her.

Full of the magic of Christmas, this story filled me with festive joy and also left me with tears in my eyes as it packed such an emotional punch at times. I am a massive fan of Jessica Redland and this story just totally stole my heart.

I loved getting to revisit the wonderful Castle Street and spend time with characters I’ve previously met and loved in other stories. I really hope we get to go back to this magical location and spend more time with these wonderful characters.

A superb and heartwarming 5* Christmas story that left me smiling and wanting to revisit Charlee and her friends again in the very near future.
