Christmas Charms by Teri Wilson {Book Review}

**I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley for consideration. All thoughts are 100% my own.


 




*One of the BEST ROMANCE NOVELS OF 2020, Cosmopolitan Magazine*

“…literally a Hallmark movie in book form.

 
She never dreamed her holiday would include
her hometown, a dog, or a firefighter.
But a mysterious charm bracelet
predicted it all…
 

Ashley’s supposed to be having the Christmas of her dreams. After four years of working at an upscale jewelry store in Manhattan, she’s finally going to get a little velvet box of her own—from her boyfriend Jeremy, who’s taking her on a romantic trip to Paris. What could go wrong?

Well, everything.

Ashley heads home to Owl Lake instead, falling asleep on the train ride there…and waking up with a beautiful antique charm bracelet on her wrist. Soon, she realizes that each silver charm predicts an event that happens in real life. What does this mean for her and Jeremy…or her and Aidan, her former high school boyfriend, who’s now a local firefighter? Is there still a chance that she could have the perfect Christmas?

This small town Christmas romance includes a free Hallmark original recipe for Spiced Walnut Crust Cookies with Chocolate Ganache and Sea Salt.

I think everyone could use a little bit of Christmas magic and whimsy this year, can't we? For that, Christmas Charms has us covered!

In this book, we meet Ashley who is returning home to the small town of Owl Creek for the first time in years after her Christmas plans fall apart. On the trip home she receives a mysterious charm bracelet...and things only get more mysterious from there as the charms on the bracelet begin to come true right before her eyes. Will she get her happily ever after?

This book truly is a Hallmark Christmas movie in book form... and one I truly hope to see come to the screen at some point as others by the author have. It is romantic, it is whimsical, it puts focus on family and tradition... and most importantly, it's filled with Christmas magic! I absolutely could not get enough. Was it a little predictable at times? Maybe, but I don't mind a little predictability in a story like this... especially at the holidays. I find it comforting and just a nice, sweet read for the holiday season.

If you love a good Christmas story or are a fan of Hallmark movies/stories any time of year, this is certainly one worth checking out.
