Stella's Christmas Wish - recommended

I have enjoyed my blog tour – many thanks to the lovely bloggers who hosted me or reviewed.


I fell in love with the characters and actually wished they were real … I loved reading about them and the way their lives intertwined … I really, really, want there to be a sequel …

Later on as we discover the truth I thought the reasons for Maddie's absence were heartfelt and brought a lovely tone and atmosphere to the story.

Stella quickly became a very sympathetic character for me.

The beauty of Scotland comes alive in this story, and the characters are so engaging and really make you care about them.

 ... I enjoyed reading this book and if you are looking for a Christmas read I recommend this one.

More reviews!  On Amazon  and Goodreads including:

It’s a book I found hard to put down

I particularly like the characterisations, and the settings of Edinburgh and the Borders, while the element of mystery keeps the pages turning until the satisfying conclusion.

… a great, feel-good modern romance

Loved all the tiny details that brought places and characters to life.

From the very beginning of this novel I was really intrigued by Stella and her family.

Stella’s Christmas Wish by Kate Blackadder is a really entertaining read, and I highly recommend it!’

 … populated with engaging, credible and interesting characters, and a couple of good twists along the way.

Kate Blackadder has created characters which are a delight to spend time with. Warm a glass of mulled wine, forget the Christmas to-do list... and enjoy!

Stella's Christmas Wish is published by Black & White Publishing at 99p.
