~Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for The Christmas Wish by Tilly Tennant~
Thank you Noelle for the invite!
Christmas came early for me and I was treated to this charming read and trip to Christmas town! I loved the setting and could feel both the frosty weather and the warmth of the cozy fire and taste of the Finnish fare.
Esme has been experiencing some tough situations that are often times a part of life. She unexpectedly loses her beloved Grandmother, Matilda. They were planning a trip of a lifetime to Lapland to see the nothern lights and spend quality time together.
I really liked Esme and felt so bad for her. She was also experiencing “boyfriend issues” and her current choice, Warren, is quite a doozy! He likes to tell her how to style her hair and often pushes the “gym” word on her. Esme is a self-proclaimed “gym hater” and really is tiring of Warren’s little hints.
This was such a nice change of pace with a festive wintry setting! It also brought to light a lesson about waiting for “Mr. Right”. A fantastic love story with a Christmas theme.

Description: Christmas is coming but it doesn’t feel that way for Esme. Jilted by her cheating fiancée Warren and mourning the death of her beloved grandmother she’s determined not to let life beat her and books a trip to Lapland, on a holiday that her grandmother had always dreamed of taking.
Beneath the indigo skies of Lapland, love is the last thing on Esme’s mind but she can’t ignore a spark with Zach, a broodingly handsome actor, also nursing a broken heart. But when Esme is bombarded by messages from Warren promising he’s changed and she discovers that Zach is hiding something-will her head be turned? And when a trip to the northern lights reveals the full extent Zach’s own secret past is there any hope that Esme will get the happy ending that her grandmother wished for her?
Tilly Tennant was born in Dorset, the oldest of four children, but now lives in Staffordshire with a family of her own. After years of dismal and disastrous jobs, including paper plate stacking, shop girl, newspaper promotions and waitressing (she never could carry a bowl of soup without spilling a bit), she decided to indulge her passion for the written word by embarking on a degree in English and creative writing. She wrote a novel in 2007 during her first summer break at university and has not stopped writing since. She also works as a freelance fiction editor, and considers herself very lucky that this enables her to read many wonderful books before the rest of the world gets them.
Hopelessly Devoted to Holden Finn was her debut novel; published in 2014 it was an Amazon bestseller in both the UK and Australia. In 2016 she signed to the hugely successful Bookouture and is currently working on her next Tilly Tennant novel. She also writes as Sharon Sant, where she explores the darker side of life, and Poppy Galbraith, where things get a little crazier.
