My Festive Reads: Guest Post by Darcie Boleyn

Wish Upon a Christmas Cake

I absolutely adore Christmas and one of my favourite things about the festive season is the preparation. For me, this involves all the usual things —like buying gifts, planning menus, making chutneys, sweet mincemeat and a Christmas cake—but it also includes watching Christmassy movies and reading Christmas books.

Wish Upon a Christmas Cake came about when I had an image of a baker preparing for Christmas in her busy shop. I had a vision of a strong independent woman who is haunted by her past. She has what appears to be the perfect extended family, but as with all families, all is not as perfect as it seems to be. I pictured her heading off to a big family Christmas (that she expects to be difficult following the recent loss of her granny) then being surprised when her ex love is there with his two children. Christmas is a time when emotions run high, so what better time to bring together two characters with a complex history and a love that never really died?

This year there are so many wonderful Christmas books out that I’m spoilt for choice. I’ve already read My Big Fat Christmas Wedding by Samantha Tonge and Bella’s Christmas Bake Off by Sue Watson and I’m currently reading Christmas at Lilac Cottage by Holly Martin. I have lots more on my Kindle and will work my way through them over coming weeks!
Hope you have a magical Christmas and enjoy many fabulous festive reads in the run up to the holidays!

Author Bio
Darcie Boleyn has a huge heart and is a real softy. She never fails to cry at books and movies, whether the ending is happy or not. Darcie is in possession of an overactive imagination that often keeps her awake at night. Her childhood dream was to become a Jedi but she hasn’t yet found suitable transport to take her to a galaxy far, far away. She also has reservations about how she’d look in a gold bikini, as she rather enjoys red wine, cheese and loves anything with ginger or cherries in it – especially chocolate. Darcie fell in love in New York, got married in the snow, rescues uncoordinated greyhounds and can usually be found reading or typing away on her laptop.
