Starry Skies Over the Chocolate Pot Café by Jessica Redland **Book Review** @rararesources

Happy Friday all!

All I want for Christmas is a new president! I really try to stay unpolitical on my blog, but it’s enough already! Thank goodness for lovely Christmas books to let me escape from the news of the world.❄️

Starry Skies Over The Chocolate Pot Café

Starry Skies Over The Chocolate Pot Café Cosy up with a mug of hot chocolate for some festive sparkle from bestseller Jessica Redland.

Everyone is getting into the festive spirit on Castle Street – snow is falling, fairy lights are glistening and Christmas shopping is underway.

But for Tara Porter, owner of thriving cafe, The Chocolate Pot, this is the most difficult time of the year. From the outside, Tara is a successful businesswoman and pillar of the community. Behind closed doors, she is lonely.

With a lifetime of secrets weighing on her shoulders, she has retreated from all friends, family and romance, and shut her real self away from the world. Afterall, if you don’t let them in, they can’t hurt you. She’s learnt that the hard way.

But as the weight of her past becomes heavier and an unexpected new neighbour moves onto the street – threatening the future of her cafe – Tara begins to realise that maybe it’s time to finally let people back in and confront her history. It could just change her life forever…

Starry Skies Over The Chocolate Pot Café was originally released as Christmas at The Chocolate Pot Café. Now re-released with a new title and new cover, this version has been freshly edited and features several new chapters.

My Thoughts

A cozy and heartwarming festive story! Tara is a bit of a Grinch. She is a very private person who nobody knows all that well and she likes it like that. She is busy running the Chocolate Pot Café and running from her past. But the store owners of Castle Street have a way of worming themselves into your heart, even if it is three sizes too small. Loved this enchanting tale. The story definitely made me happy and hungry. Tara is a sympathetic character who I loved watch grow throughout the course of the book. Loved the friendships and sense of community in this charming village. This is a can’t miss for any Christmas book fan!
