Book Description

A wonderful warm festive treat from Sunday Times bestseller Trisha Ashley.

The perfect gift isn’t always under the tree…

Single mum Cally’s life is all about her little girl Stella. She’s resigned to the fact that the only romance she’s going to get is from the rom-coms she watches, and with her busy job and her daughter, she doesn’t have time to even think about love.

But life gets very tough when Stella gets sick. Balancing her job as a recipe writer and looking after Stella is all consuming, so when Cally meets handsome baker Jago the last thing she wants to do is fall in love, especially when she’s been badly burned by a Prince Charming from her past.
Can laid-back, charming Jago unlock Cally’s frozen heart and help her find true love and magic under the mistletoe?

Come home for Christmas with this gorgeous read, perfect for fans of Katie Fforde and Jill Mansell.

“Wish Upon a Star” is another novel from Trisha Ashley set in the fictional village of Sticklepond. I was not only looking forward to reading a new Sticklepond book but also catching up with characters featured in previous books. However, this book could be quite easily read as a standalone book as previous characters play no great role in the story –they are just there in the background. The main characters have not featured in any previous Sticklepond book.

Cally is a single mum with a little girl Stella, who has a heart condition. She decides to sell her London flat to help fund life saving treatment in America and moves back home to her mum’s house in Sticklepond. Jago is a single man who, after having won a small amount on the lottery, abandons London and goes into the bakery business with his friend in a town nearby to Sticklepond.

When Cally and Jago meet by chance will their mutual love of baking be enough to melt their hearts after the heartbreak they both have suffered at the hands of previous partners? I decided to read “Wish Upon a Star” as one of my Christmas reads to get me in a festive mood I thought that given the cover there would be a good helping of tinsel and Christmas in the novel but this was not the case so beware if you are looking for a festive read then this may not be the book. However, if you are looking for a really good and heart warming story than this is definitely the book for you. So although this was not the book I thought it was going to be – it did turn out to be a lovely read with touching and moving story (but not overly sentimental). Perfect to curl up with on a cold winters evening – the story will leave you with a lovely warm glow inside you!

Easy reading but not very gripping. Took a long time to get into the story, but if you want to read something thats not too taxing then this is a candidate.

The photo above does not do the book cover any justice.This book is so Christmassy it might have fallen out of Santa's sleigh. Real silver glitter you can touch covers part of the roof and around the window and door, it's so sparkly.
This is the first book I've read by Trisha Ashley and looking through her other books on Amazon I find that this is not the first book that is set in the Lancashire village of Sticklepond and although, like me you don't have to have read any of the other books first I really want to read them and find out how some of the other villagers who are on the peripheral of this book came to be there.
This book is about Cally who has been left pregnant by her cad of a boyfriend who has gone to work in Antarctica telling her if she keeps the baby she's on her own. Cally goes ahead with the pregnancy and Stella is born with a serious heart condition which can only be corrected by an operation in America before her fifth birthday.

Cally has to move back to her Ma's house in Sticklepond and try and raise money to give Stella her life saving operation. She meets Jago who looks like Johnny Depp (which can only be good) and they become friends but when Jago's money grabbing ex girlfriend appears on the scene Cally worries that he will be whisked off back to London again. She decides to put her love life aside and concentrate on Stella who is such a delightful little girl that I found myself willing everything to go well for her.
We are introduced to Cally's mother Martha who is an absent minded artist, there are some lovely moments between her and little three year old Stella.

I started this book as it was recommended to me as a gentle read! Good for insomnia, it is a narrative of a cake loving romantic, very wordy but I stuck with it only to realize this is definitely not my genre of book!!

The first book I listened to on my new BookBeat Audiobooks app was Wish Upon a Star by Trisha Ashley. I chose this book as I have always been a fan of her books, they are lovely happy feel books that you can lose yourself in for a well-earned moment of ‘me time’. Wish Upon a Star tells the story of single mum Cally’s life, and her little girl Stella. Cally is resigned to the fact that the only romance she’s going to get is from the romcoms she watches and with her busy job and her daughter; she doesn’t have time to even think about love. Then Stella gets sick, and Cally is forced to move in with her mother in the remote village of Sticklepond, to save money for Stella’s operation, Cally realises how tough it can be to go it alone. Balancing her job as a recipe writer and looking after Stella is all consuming, so when Cally meets handsome baker Jago the last thing she wants to do is fall in love, especially when she’s been badly burned by a Prince Charming from her past. Can laid-back, charming Jago unlock Cally’s frozen heart and help her find true love and magic under the mistletoe?

I loved this story particularly as it resonated personally with me through a period in my life where I help my poorly teen through a really rough path with his own serious health complications. You can read about our own story on our BellybuttonPanda.co.uk Blog. Cally always treated Stella to a special treat after each hospital appointment, and I do exactly the same with Ryan. We either get fast food, or he gets a voucher to spend on his PC games. Wish Upon a Star also discusses how parenting sick children re-prioritises your outlook on life.
