It’s the most wonderful time of the year…

It’s December on Castle Street; the fairy lights are twinkling, snow has settled and the festive season is in full swing.

As Christmas approaches, Carly is also eagerly awaiting the return of her best friend to Whitborough Bay. Liam has no idea he’s been the object of her affection since their schooldays. After years of pining after him, can Carly pluck up the courage to finally tell him how she really feels by 25th December?

Could a little festive magic make all of Carly’s wishes come true this Christmas…?

A heartwarming, short festive story of friendship and family from bestseller Jessica Redland. You can find out what happens to Carly next through exploring her best friend Tara’s story in Starry Skies Over The Chocolate Pot Café.

This is a new and updated version of Christmas at Carly’s Cupcakes which has been previously published.


A fabulous festive novel that I adored 
Carly is the owner of a cupcake shop in a busy town but on a fabulous street of independent businesses that all work together. She does have a secret through, she has been in love with her best friend Liam for years but has been too scared to tell him in case he doesn’t feel the same
I loved Carly as a character, she is a strong and independent woman in charge and in control of her life but she would also do anything for those she cares about. Following an incident in a previous job she employs her sister Bethany and although things aren’t necisarnaly plain sailing she still cares about her sister and works hard to make things work between them and to build up Bethany’s confidence in herself again 
Carly’s relationship with Liam seems very undecided, she’s in love with him but is scared that he won’t feel the same way. A lot of the book makes you wonder whether she will or won’t tell him how she feels which feels totally natural and unforced. It is clear to see how much they care about each other as best friends and communicate as much as they can 
I really enjoyed Carly’s relationship with the other traders on her street, they work together and are like a community in how they pull together when one of them is in need which is heartwarming and I’m sure is how some streets work in real life! 
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy stories about family, character development and love which will capture your heart
