we’re continuing the festive #TCRXmas feature with a guest piece from lovely Jenny Hale. Jenny’s one of my favourite authors and her latest ‘Christmas Wishes and Mistletoe Kisses’ is one of my top 10 2015 Christmas reads (list which I’ll post at the end of this month). Read my review of it HERE and make sure you don’t miss out on it. It’s the PERFECT Christmas read you need to get in that cheery, festive mood. Much needed this time of year! Many thanks to lovely Jenny for visiting my blog today and huge thanks for being so efficient and sending me this post just couple of hours after she agreed to do it. 🙂 Enjoy!
All I Want for Christmas
When I heard this blog post was titled “All I Want for Christmas,” I immediately panicked. I’m the absolute WORST person to shop for because I tell you nothing! I’m generally content with and very thankful for everything I have, so I never want anything.
So I searched the internet for “What do people want for Christmas?” The average American in 2010 wanted his and hers Kindles, one article said. Not bad, I thought. But what about 2015? I clicked off the Internet and contemplated long and hard about what a woman might want for Christmas, and I realized that the reason I can’ttell you is because what I want hasn’t been invented yet! So, if I could have anything for Christmas, here is my top 5 list:
- A Starbucks delivery service.(My favorite drink: Caramel Brulée Latte)
- A fitness class that involves drinking coffee and talking. (Favorite real fitness class: Beginner’s Yoga)
- An 8th day of the week devoted to reading my TBR pile. (Favorite place to read: my formal living room)
- A job that involves Martini taste testing.(Favorite Martini: Rum Martini http://cocktails.about.com/od/cocktailrecipes/ig/The-Martini-Recipe-Collection/Rum-Martinis.htm )
- Extra hours in the day to write. (Favorite time to write: Morning)
In my latest novel, Christmas Wishes and Mistletoe Kisses, there are three people who all have very real wishes for Christmas, and this year, they just might get them! Christmas Wishes and Mistletoe Kisses is a story about never letting go of your dreams, the special magic of a family Christmas, and falling in love under the mistletoe. I do hope you’ll pick up a copy and enjoy it with a nice hot chocolate this Christmas. Happy reading!

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?
