#BookReview of Callie's Christmas Wish by Jessica Redland @JessicaRedland @rararesources

Callie's Christmas Wish by Jessica Redland
Published by Little Bear Books on October 25, 2018
Genres: Holiday, Fiction, Romance
Pages: 210
Also by this author: Bear With Me, Christmas at The Chocolate Pot Café: Christmas on Castle Street

Christmas is approaching and love is in the air at Bay View Care Home. Supervising carer, Callie Derbyshire, is blissfully happy with new boyfriend, Rhys. The tree’s up, the lights are twinkling, and, with the Christmas Eve wedding of one of the residents, Iris, to look forward to, everything is perfect.

Well, almost.

Rhys’s ex has him at her beck and call, yet refuses to let Callie meet their baby daughter. Callie’s ex is intent on stirring up trouble. And Callie’s favourite resident, Rhys’s nanna, Ruby, hasn’t been her usual self since Iris announced her engagement.

Convinced that Ruby’s lonely, especially after discovering the truth about her lost love, Callie’s determined to give Ruby’s romantic story the happy ending it deserves. Ruby might be adamant that the past should be left in the past. But, when it comes to true love, surely a little well-meaning meddling and a Christmas wish or two can’t do any harm. After all, it’s never to late to let love in again. Or is it?

A heartwarming Christmas story of finding new love, and the courage to revisit a love that was lost long ago

This book will give you all the warm and fuzzies you could want. I do love the stories where there is a new love and I love it where old loves come back to fight and of course the drama. This is my second outing with Jessica and her writing just envelopes me. It does not let go and it cries to me to finish the story, I mean who needs sleep! I love the two books I have read and I may or may not have just jumped onto Kindle Unlimited and “borrowed” all her other books. Whoops! 

This book is a perfect book to sit under the covers with a hot chocolate and get caught up in the story. This is a sequel to Ravings about Rhys, which I have not read (but is now on my kindle) and although I missed out on some bits, you could read it as a standalone novel. 

I did love the story of Callie and Rhys and the struggles they had to face, but it was Ruby that shone the brightest. It was her story I wanted to read the most. Ruby is one feisty lady and she won’t take anything lying down! 

I loved this book, and as I have mentioned I adored the writing. I love spending time with the characters and yes I know I have read another Christmas book – the horror of it!  This book gave me all the emotions, Jessica you did it again!

About Jessica Redland

Jessica had never considered writing as a career until a former manager kept telling her that her business reports read more like stories and she should write a book. She loved writing but had no plot ideas. Then something happened to her that prompted the premise for her debut novel, Searching for Steven. She put fingers to keyboard and soon realised she had a trilogy and a novella!

She lives on the stunning North Yorkshire Coast – the inspiration for the settings in her books – with her husband, daughter, cat, Sprocker Spaniel, and an ever-growing collection of collectable teddy bears. Although if the dog has her way, the collection will be reduced to a pile of stuffing and chewed limbs!

Jessica tries to balance her time – usually unsuccessfully – between being an HR tutor and writing.

Reading this book contributed to these challenges:
