Poppy’s Christmas Wishes by Annette Hannah @annettehannah @books_dash #bookreview

Happy Monday everyone! I’m kicking off Christmas week with another festive review.

Poppy’s Christmas Wishes is Annette Hannah’s third novel and was published earlier this month. It’s currently at a bargain price to download from your favourite e-book seller!

The Blurb

What would you wish for if you were granted three wishes?

For the first time she can remember, Poppy is dreading Christmas. Unceremoniously dumped by her boyfriend after moving across the country for him, there’s nothing cheery about the festive season this year.

Dragged to a Christmas ball by best friend Layla, Poppy meets gorgeous actor Gabe, who stars as a genie in a play. When he asks her what three wishes she would make, she realises it’s quite simple: love, a job she’s happy in and, just once in her life, to do something extraordinary. 

Gabe and Poppy make a pact to help each other make their dreams come true. As they tick off their wishes, their friendship blossoms… But, as they discover, sometimes, what you want for Christmas isn’t necessarily what you need…

A delicious romance to snuggle up with this festive season from the author of Wedding Bells at the Signal Box Café and The Cosy Little Cupcake Van.

What Did I Think?

Poppy has been screwed over by the love of her life and abandoned miles from home without a friend in sight. No wonder she doesn’t want to celebrate Christmas. Enter stage left bestie Layla and stranger Gabe to help this heartbroken scouser put a smile back on her face.

What ensues is new friendships, surprises, personal challenges and some serious sexual tension!!! Life is definitely not quiet in Bramblewood for Poppy. I loved the journey I went on with Poppy. After getting the worst Christmas present from her ex, she deserved some happiness and I was desperate for her to find some.

I devoured this festive read over the course of an afternoon, escaping from the stress of real life for a few hours. And what an escape it was. I adored the characters playing their integral part in Poppy’s road from heartbreak. And I loved the surprises I encountered along the way!

This is another emotional rollercoaster from the keyboard of Hannah but it’s definitely more ups than downs. But I won’t deny there were tears, very very sad tears. This woman packs a punch when she pulls the heartstrings. I loved the first two books from Annette Hannah but I think I loved Poppy’s Christmas Wishes that little bit more.

  1. That does sound like a good one. So far I’ve read two e-books with proper Christmas themes (after a few wintery ones that weren’t strictly Christmassy), one was pretty good and very kind, the other an uneasy mix of too much raunch and social/community conscience!! Reviews to come, and I’m reading a slightly more conventional paper one now.
