I’m so excited to be part of this blog tour for A WInter’s Wish Come True. Lynsey James is a wonderful author and her books always leave me with a happy knot in my stomach. I loved the first part in this series A Season of Hopes and Dreams and you can check out my review again for that here. Huge thanks to Lynsey James and Jenny from Neverland Blog Tours for having me on the tour.
Being pregnant with her ex-boyfriend’s baby is the last thing on Cleo Jones’s Christmas wish list. Scott might have been the man of her dreams once upon a time, but things change and now Cleo faces a future as a single mum… Or does she?
Scott won’t let Cleo go through this alone; whatever their differences he’s vowed to be there, from antenatal classes to night feeds and nappy changing. The two agree to bring up their baby as friends – but as Cleo’s bump grows, so do their feelings for each other.
Cleo can’t be sure if it’s her heart of her hormones urging her to give Scott a second chance – but getting back together could be the best Christmas present of all!
I well and truly fell in love with Cleo and Scott in A Season of Hopes and Dreams, imagine my distraught cries when I started A Winter’s Wish come True only to find out they had split up. Lynsey James, you broke my heart girl! This is it, that book AFTER the Happily Ever After, except it’s not too happy!
That is until Scott slinks back into town, tail between his legs and rekindles those flames leaving poor old Cleo with a little more than she bargained for. Single, pregnant and hoping beyond hope for a real happy ending Cleo is now facing the harsh realities of her life.
Sooooo, I will admit to finding Cleo just a little irritating early in this book. If she’d just reeled in her attitude and listened to Scott she would have saved herself a lot of trouble. BUT, that wouldn’t have exactly made for a very good book, so I get it, I really do. I just think she could have been a bit nicer.
Scott is kind of a perfect guy, he just does and says the right things every time, even when it’s taken the wrong way (almost every time) and he just keeps on bouncing back for more. That man loves his woman ladies. Sure, he’s screwed up in the past, but who hasn’t? He is definitely one of those guys that give you the warm and fuzzies.
This is going to be a book that warms everyone up from the inside out and brings happy festive smiles to all your faces.
Sending huge thanks to Lynsey James, HQ Digital and Neverland Blog Tours for the eARC so that I could read and honestly review this novel.
About Lynsey James
Lynsey James was born in Fife in 1991 and has been telling people how to spell her name ever since. She’s an incurable bookworm who loves nothing more than getting lost in a good story with memorable characters. She started writing when she was really young and credits her lovely Grandad- and possibly a bump on the head from a Mr Frosty machine- with her love of telling stories. She used to write her own episodes of Friends and act them out in front of her family (in fact she’s sure she put Ross and Rachel together first!)
A careers adviser at school once told Lynsey writing wasn’t a “good option” and for a few years, she believed her. She tried a little bit of everything, including make-up artistry, teaching and doing admin for a chocolate fountain company. The free chocolate was brilliant. When Lynsey left my job a couple of years ago, she started writing full-time while she looked for another one. As soon as she started working on her story, Lynsey fell in love and decided to finally pursue her dream. She haven’t looked back since.
When Lynsey’s not writing, eating cake or drinking tea, she’s daydreaming about the day Dylan O’Brien FINALLY realises they’re meant to be together. It’ll happen one day…
