If you love Hallmark Christmas movies, you’re going to want to read Christmas Charms by Teri Wilson. It’s basically the book baby of It’s a Wonderful Life and Groundhog Day. And be honest…you can’t pass by either of those while channel surfing without stopping to watch for a little while, am I right?
I’m a big fan of author Teri Wilson, so I was excited to get the opportunity to read and review this one before its October 6, 2020 release date — shout out to Hallmark Publishing and NetGalley.
You know I love a second chance romance! So, when I saw this one involved our heroine Ashley heading back home for the holidays and running into high school boyfriend Aidan (who is now a hunky firefighter), I couldn’t resist.
Ashley, of course, does try to resist. She continually tries to leave town to head back to Manhattan only to have her plans foiled over and over again in a way that reminded me of Groundhog Day.
Normally, I’m not a big fan of any sort of magic in my books, but I make an exception at Christmas for Hallmark movies, so I figured why not make an exception for a Hallmark book?
The magic in this book revolves around an antique charm bracelet Ashley is gifted by a stranger on her train ride home. It’s not long before she realizes that each charm on the bracelet represents something she wished for as a child at Christmas…and now each thing is coming true.
I don’t know about you, but I loved charm bracelets when I was a kid, so it brought back some fun memories. And who doesn’t love a little magic and romance at Christmastime?
I sincerely hope Hallmark decides to make Christmas Charms into a movie, because it makes me smile every time I think about it. If you need a cozy little Christmas treat, grab this one and a hot cup of cocoa and snuggle in for a good read!
