Book Review ~ Christmas in Wishful: A Small Town Southern Holiday Romance Extravaganza by Kait Nolan


As guardian to her younger siblings, Tara Honeycutt has forgotten what it’s like to be a normal twenty-something. When a major gas line breaks, leaving them with no heat, no hot water, and no way to cook for Christmas, Jace Applewhite invites Tara and her sibs out to his family’s Christmas tree farm. Will a good old fashioned farmhouse Christmas be enough to get Tara to give him a second glance?


After finding out her Mr. Right was actually Mr. Wrong, Mary Alice is taking a break from love to chair her favorite holiday charity. Chad thinks volunteering is the perfect way to get to know his Christmas crush. Will he manage to overcome her once bitten, twice shy caution?


Hannah’s waiting tables at Wishful’s Dinner Belles diner and dreaming of getting an interior design business off the ground. What better way to practice and show off her skills than with some holiday decorating? Jaded Ryan, an Army medic on leave, and his cantankerous great uncle, Percy, are desperately in need of Christmas cheer—and a referee. Can Hannah’s warmth thaw these frosty hearts?


The Campbell clan is in for a very special Christmas surprise in this exclusive bonus short story!

Christmas in Wishful is a wonderful collection of holiday love stories in the town of Wishful, the brainchild of Kait Nolan. This collection has a sweet and sassy heroine to fit whatever mood you’re in when you pick it up. Personally, I really loved Tara with her beautiful, sad smile. She’s stepped in to raise her half-siblings, foregoing a dance career to do so. She’s not bitter, she’s exhausted and determined to put the kids first for the first time in forever and I love her for it. And I love Jace for putting Tara first for once, for giving her something to smile about. For just being a good guy when she needed one, even if she didn’t know she did need one.

In fact, each of the stories contain women who are strong but in different ways. They do the hard things, the right things, and the universe rewards them beautifully. The best part of all is that I got to read every word and go on the journey with Tara, Mary Alice, Hannah and Norah (bonus story). Each story takes you on a beautiful journey of love and romance, complete with holiday cheer because it’s Wishful and that’s what we do here!

Each time I take a trip to Wishful, MS, I want to hop a plane, penny in hand and make a wish of my own. I had a different reaction to each story, each couple but they were all a different type of the feels.
