A Winter's Wish Come True - by Lynsey James

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

Being pregnant with her ex-boyfriend’s baby is the last thing on Cleo Jones’s Christmas wish list. Scott might have been the man of her dreams once upon a time, but things change and now Cleo faces a future as a single mum… Or does she?

Scott won’t let Cleo go through this alone; whatever their differences he’s vowed to be there, from antenatal classes to night feeds and nappy changing. The two agree to bring up their baby as friends – but as Cleo’s bump grows, so do their feelings for each other.

Cleo can’t be sure if it’s her heart of her hormones urging her to give Scott a second chance – but getting back together could be the best Christmas present of all! 
My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review* 

I didn't realise that this book was the sequel to A Season of Hopes and Dreams until I started reading the book. Even then I was not 100% sure, the names sounded so familiar. It was great to be back in Cleo's life again and see what her new challenges were.

Her boyfriend Scott left her to go to Australia, but now he is back and things aren't easy. And the. Out of the blue she finds herself being pregnant with his baby. After that they are on and off and noboday really knows what's going on between them. This was when for me the book got a bit draggy and very predictable. Don't get me wrong I read a lot of chick-lit, but I really started struggling here.

Lynsey has a wonderful writing style. It flows beautifully and she always finds the right words. There were just parts of the storyline I didn't particularly like and some of the characters' decisions didn't make any sense for me. I couldn't really relate to any of them, which is a real pity.

I have read Lynsey James' previous books and I think she is really talented. This book just didn't do it for me.
