What they say:

Tis the season to be . . . pregnant? Catch up with Cleo and Scott in this fabulously feel-good festive read

Being pregnant with her ex-boyfriend’s baby is the last thing on Cleo Jones’s Christmas wish list. Scott might have been the man of her dreams once upon a time, but things change and now Cleo faces a future as a single mum… Or does she?

Scott won’t let Cleo go through this alone; whatever their differences he’s vowed to be there, from antenatal classes to night feeds and nappy changing. The two agree to bring up their baby as friends – but as Cleo’s bump grows, so do their feelings for each other.

Cleo can’t be sure if it’s her heart of her hormones urging her to give Scott a second chance – but getting back together could be the best Christmas present of all!

The Review: After loving A Season Of Hopes And Dreams (review here ), I was thrilled to jump STRAIGHT into this, A Winter’s Wish Come True, returning to see what had and would happen with Cleo and Scott. Books with pregnancy and babies or kiddies bundled up with comedy and romance are right up my street and I looked forward to seeing how Ms. Jame approached the whole thing. We start off somewhere along the street we ended up in (don’t worry, no spoilers for the last book!), with Cleo still attacking that bucket list; she’s taking a skydive and turning down her instructor for a date. As the blurb says, she’s broken up with Scott, which is a shock, and I was dying to see what had happened and why. As always, Cleo is always full of surprises and I settled in. The pregnancy of course comes as a shock and I loved the brilliantly done ‘it can’t be THAT!’ moment. There are many captivating moments in this book and a return to some of the characters we’d met before, although here, we’re used to them and so settle into enjoying her friends, and her family (her mother, although pushy, stole my heart.’ We also meet old acquaintances, some not so friendly, and issues that she thought she had conquered, the psychology of which was captivating. I highlighted as I went, chortled, ohhed and made shocked faces as I flew through this excellent book that will make any chick lit lover happy out this Christmas. Could be read as a standalone but to be honest I’d go enjoy them both! Thanks so much to Netgalley and HQ digital for this book in return for an honest review.
