Christmas Wishes at the Chocolate Shop : A Tale of Two Christmases

Who doesn't love chocolate especially when you add the season of Christmas and romance?  This story had it all.  I loved having the opportunity to read this book by Jessica Redland.  I never heard of her until I received an email asking if I would like to review this book.  I am so glad I did.  

It was the story of Charlee and a "Tale of Two Christmases".  I can remember two Christmases I had back to back in the the early 2000s.  I was in a stupid relationship that should have ended years before.  Yep, I stayed with the wrong guy for 4 years.   Fast forward to the next Christmas, I was in love with the love of my life soon to be engaged. You never know what is around the corner.

Charlee's story is one where the unimaginable happened.  It was magical.  It was unpredictable.  But it happened!

I loved this story. I will certainly keep my eye out for any past and future books by Ms. Jessica Redland.  

  I received this from Boldwood Books to review.  


I was born in Teesside but now live in Scarborough on the stunning North Yorkshire Coast. My home inspired the creation of the fictional seaside town of Whitsborough Bay where I set many of my books although the Hedgehog Hollow series takes readers to a gorgeous new countryside setting in the Yorkshire Wolds.

I live with my husband, our teenage daughter and sprocker spaniel, Ella. I'm a self-confessed stationery addict with a ridiculously large collection of notepads who loves chocolate (although it doesn't love me), hedgehogs, 80s music, collectible teddy bears and lighthouses.

Other than a career detour into retail to set up and run my own teddy bear shop (the inspiration for novel Bear With Me), I've always worked in HR, specialising in resourcing, coaching and L&D. Writing always had to take a back seat to the day job until June 2020 when I left the world of HR to become a full-time author. I'm so very grateful to anyone who has bought or borrowed my books in whatever format, helping me fulfil a long-held dream of writing full-time. I still can't believe I get to spend every day chatting to my fictional friends and making stuff up.
