Book tour: Wish Upon A Christmas Cake - Darcie Boleyn



The most wonderful time of the year?

Katie Warham has just one wish this year…to have the best Christmas ever!

If only she could lock herself away in a cloud of flour and sugar at her cosy little tearoom, Crumbtious Cakes, instead of spending the festive season trapped with her judgemental mother, crazy Aunt Gina and loved-up celebrity brother Carl…

But Katie never expected her ex-boyfriend, widower Sam – and his two adorable children – to turn up on her doorstep. She didn’t think that any man could tempt her under the mistletoe this year, but Sam might just prove the exception! And as the snow begins to fall and Katie puts the final touches to her famous Christmas cake, she begins to wonder, could her Christmas wish actually come true?

This holiday season, snuggle up by a roaring fire with a mulled wine and enjoy Darcie Boleyn’s festive winter warmer!


My opinion.
This is hands down one of the most heartwarming Christmas stories I've read. Both cover and title are cute and have the promise of a fun, romantic winter read. After just a few chapters however, it was quite clear that Wish Upon a Christmas Cake would be much more than just 'cute and fun'. It really got to me. It's emotional and passionate, heartwarming and hopeful with a bit of humour.The issues Darcie's characters have to deal with are tough and complicated, but she really succeeded in dealing with them in a believable way. Some wine and good food and a bit of a romantic atmosphere didn't just lead to a "happily ever after". Her characters worked through ups and downs and it made me fall in love with them even more.
Wish Upon a Christmas Cake is a must-read this holiday season, and Darcie Boleyn an author to watch!


 


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.
