Blog Tour: The Christmas Wish by Tilly Tennant @bookouture

Happy Wednesday, book friends💙 Thank you to Bookouture for the invite for the blog tour for A Christmas Wish by Tilly Tennant! I loved this one and highly recommend!


What a gorgeous holiday book!

Tilly Tennant has such a way with words – I adored this emotional, heartfelt story. The cover alone is adorable, but the words inside are even better. This was quite more serious than I would have believed it was going to be and I thoroughly enjoyed the direction it went in.

I feel like I can’t provide a summary with spoilers so I’ll just say that we get to see our main character, Esme, go on a personal journey in which she grows tremendously and it is a joy to read about.

I absolutely adored the setting, one I’ve never read about before, and enjoyed learning about the location and the atmosphere. The perfect winter wonderland!

There was some comic relief from the character of Hortense who happened to be one of my favorite characters – I’d love to see another book to explore what happens to her in the future!

There were several difficult subjects addressed, all carefully detailed, that will make you feel for these characters tremendously. I highly recommend for those who enjoy holiday books with a more serious edge.

A big thank you again to Bookouture for my advance copy! This book is now available.

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?

about the author:

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.
