One phone call can change everything...
Six days before Christmas, Stella could never have anticipated the impact on her life when the phone rings in her London office.
The phone call is from a friend of the family informing Stella that her grandmother has been hurt in a fall at her home in the Scottish borders and is in hospital. Torn between her responsibilities at work and the need to be with her grandmother she decides she must return to Scotland immediately.
However, on her return to where she grew up, it becomes apparent that her grandmother’s health is not her only concern. Relationships which have lain dormant for years are re- kindled and fresh opportunities present themselves – if she will only dare to take them...
With her grandmother's fall, Stella is forced to return to her Scottish home of Melrose and face Ross, the man she left behind when she ran away to London. The man she left broken-hearted. The only man she has ever loved. Knowing that she cannot avoid him for long, she tries to keep her distance as much as possible for both of their sakes, but with his family welcoming her back, her grandmother in the hospital, and her sister disappearing to Australia to unearth an old family secret, Stella is sure to have a Christmas like no other. And when Ross seems to have moved on with someone else, Stella struggles with letting him go from her heart because she never wanted to leave him - her hands were tied. Could a simple Christmas wish make a difference? With secrets, love, and the true meaning of family and loyalty, STELLA'S CHRISTMAS WISH by Kate Blackadder is a heartwarming tale that is sure to make you smile on a cold Winter's night. The beauty of Scotland comes alive in this story, and the characters are so engaging and really make you care about them. With many interesting personalities, plenty of misunderstandings, and hidden secrets coming to life, STELLA'S CHRISTMAS WISH by Kate Blackadder is a really entertaining read, and I highly recommend it!
