Callie’s Christmas Wish: Still Raving About Rhys by Jessica Redland Blog Tour with Review

Callie's Christmas Wish

Callie’s Christmas Wish

by Jessica Redland

 

Synopsis: 

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.




Christie’s Review

5 STARS

If you are looking for that special Christmas read, then look no further than Callie’s Christmas Wish. It will definitely put you in the holiday spirit!!!!

Callie and a good majority of the characters were introduced in the book, Raving for Rhys. This one is a continuation of sorts of Callie and Rhys’s romance. It’s nearing Christmas, but not everyone is enjoying the magical season. Callie is very happy with Rhys, but his ex is causing trouble. She won’t allow Callie to spend anytime with Rhys’s daughter,, and she seems to have Rhys on a short leash, even though they aren’t together. If that wasn’t enough, Callie’s jerk ex, Tony, has shown back up causing trouble. Rhys grandmother, Ruby, is somewhat down in the dumps since her friend, Iris, is now engaged. Anyone who knows Callie knows she is determined to not let any of this ruin Christmas.

When she spends more time with Ruby, she learns more about her past, and this is where the book’s focus shifts to Ruby and her own happily ever after. I knew Ruby had a colorful past, and I was right. I loved discovering more about her and her lost love.

Redland manages to juggle several characters’ stories at one time, and she does it flawlessly. What she gives us is a magical book about love, reconciliation, and second chances, all while showing us it’s never too late, or you’re never too old to find love!!!!

If the book wasn’t good enough, Redland also gives us insight into her writing process and how this story developed….that made it even better. So, find a quiet place with a warm cup of tea or coffee and settle in to read this most wonderful book!!!!!

Author Bio 

Jessica - Author Photo

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 collectible teddy bears. Although if the dog has her way, the collection will be reduced to a pile of stuffing and chewed limbs!
Her passion for North Yorkshire is shared by fellow-writer and great friend, Sharon Booth and, together, they are the Yorkshire Rose Writers.
Jessica tries to balance her time — often unsuccessfully — between being an HR tutor, trying to re-learn how to play the piano, studying towards a Masters in Creative Writing, and writing itself. Who needs sleep?
