A Second Christmas Wish

A Second Christmas Wish (Choc Lit): For Santa's eyes only, but what could it be? by [Freeman, Kathryn]

About the Book:

Do you believe in Father Christmas?

For Melissa, Christmas has always been overrated. From her cold, distant parents to her manipulative ex-husband, Lawrence, she’s never experienced the warmth and contentment of the festive season with a big, happy family sitting around the table.

And Melissa has learned to live with it, but it breaks her heart that her seven-year-old son, William, has had to live with it too. Whilst most little boys wait with excitement for the big day, William finds it difficult to believe that Father Christmas even exists.

But then Daniel McCormick comes into their lives. And with his help, Melissa and William might just be able to find their festive spirit, and finally have a Christmas where all of their wishes come true …

My Comments:

What could be sweeter than a little boy learning to believe in Santa?  Maybe his mother learning to believe in love?  

Melissa's ex wanted her, but he didn't want competition for her love.  When she got pregnant, he insisted on an abortion and when she refused, he refused to love the child. Eventually they split and Melissa went from being a  model to being a fashion designer. Then she met Daniel.  She didn't want to love him, she didn't want to let him get close, but....he loved her boy and what woman can resist that?  

The title refers to her son, William's visit to Father Christmas (the story is set in England).  William doesn't believe, but tells Father Christmas two things he wants.  What are they?  Will he get them?  Read the book--it is an inexpensive ebook and definitely worth it. 

Thanks to the publisher for making a review copy available via NetGalley.  Grade:  B.
