Christmas Wishes and Mistletoe Kisses by Jenny Hale

’I absolutely loved this book! … A beautifully written story you won’t be able to put down and one of the best festive reads I’ve ever read.’ 10/10 This Chick Reads 

An uplifting, beautiful story about never letting go of your dreams, the special magic of a family Christmas… and the rush of falling in love under the mistletoe. 

Single mother Abbey Fuller loves her family more than anything, and doesn’t regret for a moment having had to put her dreams of being an interior designer on hold. But with her son, Max, growing up, when a friend recommends her for a small design job she jumps at the chance. How hard can it be? 

Nick Sinclair needs his house decorated in time for his family’s festive visit – and money is no object. What he doesn’t need is to be distracted from his multi-million dollar business – even if it is Christmas. 

When Abbey pulls up to the huge Sinclair mansion, she has a feeling she might be out of her depth. And when she meets the gorgeous, brooding Nicholas Sinclair, she knows that she’s in real trouble… 

With the snow falling all around, can Abbey take the chance to make her dreams of being a designer come true? And can she help Nick to finally enjoy the magic of Christmas?
A wonderfully festive read that I couldn’t put down.  I was so looking forward to this book just based on the title and it didn’t disappoint.

It has got me well and truly into the Christmas spirit.  I need to Christmas shop, celebrate and decorate NOW!  Roll on December (for the celebrations).

I connected with Abbey straight away and loved experiencing everything she went through with her granddad, bringing up her son and living with her mistakes etc.  I love that while I hoped I knew what was going to happen I wasn’t quite sure.  I felt like I was in the story with the characters and now I’ve finished it I feel like I’ve lost my best friend.

It was a beautiful uplifting story and is one of my new favourite Christmas stories that I will read again and again.  I love Jenny she is one of my newest favourite authors and I can’t wait for her next book.

When she graduated college, one of Jenny’s friends said “Look out for this one; she’s going to be an author one day”. Despite being an avid reader and a natural storyteller, it wasn’t until that very moment that the idea of writing novels occurred to her.

Sometimes our friends can see the things that we can’t. Whilst she didn’t start straight away, that comment sowed a seed and several years, two children and hundreds of thousands of words later, Jenny finished her first novel – Coming Home for Christmas – which became an instant bestseller.
