Continuing the Christmas celebration here on This Chick Reads and on the 10th day of #TCRXmas I have the honour to welcome one of my fave authors, Sue Watson to my blog. I’ve read and loved all of Sue’s books and her latest, ‘Bella’s Christmas Bake Off’ is one brilliant Christmas book you must not miss out. Read my review HERE and see just how much I loved it. I want to thank lovely Sue for being part of #TCRXmas and being SO supportive of my blogging throughout the years. Also, Sue’s kindly donated TWO E-BOOKS of ‘Bella’s Christmas BakeOff’ so make sure you enter the giveaway (which is of course, open internationally). See you tomorrow with more festive fun & a giveaway!



All I want for Christmas


At a time when the world is in turbulence, when people are homeless, starving and scared all over the world my first wish would be that we can overcome the problems and live in peace.  But as we are human beings it seems it’s not something we find easy to do, so as much as I want this, I may also look closer to home.

I am currently writing my next book and when writing I find it hard to read other books because I can’t concentrate, I’m so involved in my own plot – and my characters tend to follow me around. This can be tricky, especially if I’m on public transport and find myself chatting with them! As I have so many author friends who write brilliant books – particularly my fellow Bookouture friends –I want to spend Christmas reading their books.And along with world peace, happiness, no more hunger, homelessness or fear – all I want for Christmas is time with my family, a well-stocked kindle and a well-stocked-fridge! And even if I have none of the above I know I am very, very lucky.




About Sue Watson

Sue Watson was a TV Producer with the BBC who combined motherhood and family life with a busy career. However, one day it dawned on Sue that Cosmo magazine may have been telling porkies about 'having it all,' and her life had become a slightly crazed juggling act.

So after much soul searching (and comfort eating) Sue abandoned her TV career, bought a pink laptop and wrote 'Fat Girls and Fairy Cakes.' It was then Sue realised she couldn't stop writing and produced 'Younger, Thinner, Blonder' 'Love, Lies and Lemon Cake' and 'Snow Angels, Secrets and Christmas Cake,' 'Summer Flings and Dancing Dreams,' and 'Bella's Christmas Bake Off.'

Originally from Manchester, Sue now lives with her husband and teenage daughter in Worcestershire where she bakes (and eats) lots of cake. She spends much of her time making big decisions about whether to have Caramel Chew Chew or Peanut Butter ice cream (or both?) while watching 'The Biggest Loser USA,' and procrastinating over her latest novel.

Bella Bradley is the queen of television baking – a national treasure. Her Christmas specials have been topping the ratings for years and her marriage to Peter ‘Silver Fox’ Bradley is the stuff of Hello magazine specials.

But this year things are going to be different.

For Amy Lane, Bella’s best friend from school, life hasn’t held quite the same sparkle. And when Amy’s husband walks out three weeks from Christmas, it seems their lives are further apart than ever.

Amy has watched Bella’s rise to fame fondly, despite the fact Bella was always a terrible cook. But when she realises that Bella’s latest Christmas book is made up entirely of Amy’s mother’s recipes, the gloves are off…

After winning a competition to appear on Bella’s TV show, Amy is going to make sure that for Bella and her viewers, this will definitely be a Christmas to remember…

A hilarious, heart-breaking and feel good read about best friends, baking and the magic of Christmas.
