I’m super excited to be part of the blog tour for Poppy’s Christmas Wishes by Annette Hannah. I’ve known her for a good few years now and I’m so proud of Annette and all that she is achieving in her author career.
About the book
What would you wish for if you were granted three wishes?
For the first time she can remember, Poppy is dreading Christmas. Unceremoniously dumped by her boyfriend after moving across the country for him, there’s nothing cheery about the festive season this year.
Dragged to a Christmas ball by best friend Layla, Poppy meets gorgeous actor Gabe, who stars as a genie in a play. When he asks her what three wishes she would make, she realises it’s quite simple: love, a job she’s happy in and, just once in her life, to do something extraordinary.
Gabe and Poppy make a pact to help each other make their dreams come true. As they tick off their wishes, their friendship blossoms… But, as they discover, sometimes, what you want for Christmas isn’t necessarily what you need…
A delicious romance to snuggle up with this festive season from the author of Wedding Bells at the Signal Box Café and The Cosy Little Cupcake Van.
So what did I think?
I thoroughly enjoyed reading Poppy’s Christmas Wishes and with Annette’s wonderful sense of humour shining through, superb characters that you love (and some you don’t!) and a great plot, it was a book that I got lost myself in.
The author’s writing style made the pages turn themselves quickly as I raced through the book enjoying every single page.
It was the first Christmas book I’ve read this year and the gorgeous Christmassy scenes and situations put me right in the Christmas mood. It warmed and uplifted my heart, and reminded me of a perfect fairytale, although there were bumps in the road along the way.
Poppy’s Christmas Wishes is a fabulously entertaining story of a glorious heroine’s journey, fabulous friendships and a gorgeous hero! Highly recommended and will absolutely get you in the Christmas spirit.
