Christmas Wishes At The Chocolate Shop
Sometimes you just need a little Christmas magic to make your wishes come true…
When master chocolatier, Charlee, takes the leap to move to the picturesque seaside town of
Whitsborough Bay, she is determined to follow in her grandfather’s footsteps and set up a chocolate
Luckily, she finds the perfect location for Charlee’s Chocolates on beautiful Castle Street… Now she
just has to refurbish it in time for Christmas!
With a useless boyfriend and countless DIY disasters, Charlee doesn’t know if she’ll make it in time.
With no ‘traditional’ family to support her, she feels lost in her new surroundings and the secrets of
the past are weighing her down.
But the warmth and festive spirit of the Whitsborough Bay community will surprise her, and when
plumber, Matt, comes to the rescue, it might be that all of Charlee’s dreams could come true this
Christmas, and she could learn what family really means…
Escape to Castle Street for the perfect uplifting, festive read from top 10 bestseller Jessica Redland.
Christmas Wishes at the Chocolate Shop was originally released as Charlee and the Chocolate Shop.
Now re-released with a new title and new cover, this version has been freshly edited and features
several new chapters.
It’s always a pleasure to pick up one of Jessica Redland’s lovely, magical, full of emotion and drama stories! Especially when it is set in Whitsborough Bay, a small seaside town with a great community.
Let’s just admire this gorgeous cover for a moment…It really doesn’t get more festive and romantic than this!
My heart went straightaway to Charlee, a master chocolatier (what a fabulous jobit is- making people happy with your creations, a bit like writing Christmas stories ), who has just relocated to Whitsborough Bay with her boyfriend. There’s a lot of pressure on her and Ricky couldn’t have been more useless, even if he tried! Luckily, Charlee is about to find out what a wonderfully caring community her new town is. Sometimes you really need a bit of help and friendly support to make you see the big picture and change the way you feel about some pretty important things in life.
As usual, the characters are well-developed and have their own challenges to overcome. Charlee becomes stronger and more determined throughout the story and it’s impossible not to wish her love and happiness she deserves. If you’re looking for a sweet story with family secrets, friendships and festive fabulousness, Christmas Wishes at the Chocolate Shop might be exactly what you need at this time of year.
