Review: Her Christmas Wish by Kitty Jones 

Will she get her Christmas wish?

Synopsis

Savannah and Jessie have been best friends since the 7th grade. Everything about their relationship has always been easy and comfortable. They’ve always had shared interests, shared hobbies, and even shared friends, but Jessie has a secret, and she’s not sure what to do.

It’s two weeks until Christmas when Savannah suggests taking a road trip to purchase a few last-minute gifts at a Christmas market specializing in unique holiday gifts. Jessie can’t think of a reasonable excuse, so she says yes, but when a freak snowstorm hits, a 6-hour trip turns into a weekend away.

When sparks start to fly, Jessie wonders if it’s actually the right time to tell Savannah how she really feels.

What happens when being true to herself means ruining their friendship?13

My thoughts

Sometimes the hardest problem with the holidays can be your own family and Kitty Jones shines a light on this problem in Her Christmas Wish

Here is a spoiler for you: Jessie likes girls, but no one knows. (I felt kind of comfortable telling you this as Jones implies it in the synopsis (chuckle).) Her family has been mean and intolerant of her for her entire life. This was exposed in Jessie’s teenage years. Feeling like an outsider in your own family can have an impact on you and Jones balances this fine line between angst and romance adeptly. We get the “ouch”, but the kisses too.

I want to say, “Kudos” to Jones for writing Clarissa as she did – so “Kudos” to Clarissa too. I so wish I had been a fly on the wall for that scene. Just saying an after scene would be so awesome. But that is just me being vindictive…shock. I know! 

Jones gives Jessie and Savannah heart as they tell both sides of their story. You get to hear their voices tell their story of how they got on the road to Cloverton. There are so many meaningful moments in this story, it would make a great Hallmark movie. 

Her Christmas Wish ended a little too quickly for me. I would have liked a little more flesh towards the end. The last chapter felt very rushed to me. There is a happily-ever-after, but I sincerely wanted to bask in the glow. Wow…this came out really sexually (laugh). Sorry rainbows, but Jones keeps the heat very tame in this story. Everything happens off page. 

I liked this sweet best-friends to lovers romance. It has everything, plus family dysfunction and drama. Kitty Jones has made this holiday just a little bit sweeter with Her Christmas Wish.

I received a free copy of this book and I am writing a review without prejudice and voluntarily.
