‘That’s why I’m standing here. That’s why I flew five thousand miles to come home, just for a couple of nights – to try and fix things. But it looks like you’re doing just fine without me, doesn’t it?’
Even stars have Christmas dreams…
Popstar Jessika Malone can’t believe her luck! Not only has she signed a major record deal and is topping the charts with her latest single, she’s just been offered the chance of a lifetime: a tour with gorgeous megastar Cooper Black…
It’s everything she’s ever dreamed of – except that it means travelling thousands of miles from her boyfriend, Daniel, just when he’s finally got down on one knee and popped the question!
Far from home and followed by the paparazzi, her relationship is tested more than Jessika ever imagined – will she make it home for Christmas before it’s too late?
Hi everyone, I have a contemporary review for you today. I was asked to take part in the blog tour for I’ll Be Home For Christmas, and I am so glad I said ‘yes’! So, welcome to my stop on the blog tour – I hope you enjoy it.
Jessy is a down to earth girl from Liverpool; but as Jessika Malone, she’s a famous singer who’s offered a once in a lifetime opportunity to tour America with sexy Cooper Black. The problem is, Jessy struggles with all the attention, and the lack of privacy that come with being a celebrity. Plus, she’s going to have to leave her soulmate, record producer Daniel who’s also going to be faced with temptations of his own. Can Jessy cope with more fame, and will their relationship survive a month apart from each other?
I really loved this! The interplay of all the different relationships is fabulous. We all behave differently, and wear different masks depending on who we’re with, and Ms Clancy has beautifully understood this. She’s drawn each character, and each relationship with warmth, humour and believability. My sympathies though, lay with Jessy. She’s the main viewpoint character, and this is so well done, so tightly focussed, and her experiences, emotions, and thoughts are so real, she just leaps off the page. I felt as if I was in the position of a best friend, and like any good best friend I found myself laughing, and crying with her, sometimes getting frustrated and mad with her, but always rooting for her and wanting her to find happiness.
Buy this if you want a wonderfully entertaining, fun, and heart-warming read, that’s full of fabulous characters (Neale anyone?), glamour, and romantic conflict. Oh, and stock up on tissues. Preferably Christmas ones.
PS, I’ll be Home For Christmas was chosen to be part of the Tickled Pink Campaign for October 2019, and 45p from each book sold was donated to the campaign.
