🎄 The Little Christmas Shop on Nutcracker Lane by Jaimie Admans⁠

👩 Nia Maddison has always believed that wishes come true on Nutcracker Lane. So, working late one night in her own Christmas gift shop on the lane, she decides to crack a nut in the mouth of the Magic Nutcracker that guards the market, wishing for Prince Charming. When, the day after, she stumbles across the gorgeous shop owner James, who looks exactly like Prince Charming, she wonders if her wish came true.⁠

♥️ I liked:⁠
🍫 The Christmas vibe. I really like Christmas, and I totally got Nia and her love for the most magical season of the year. I wish Nutcracker Lane was really to be able to shop in those cute stalls, sipping peppermint hot chocolate. ⁠
🎅 Nia. She is such a great character! She could be Mrs Santa Claus or a younger version of her. Nia spends days and nights creating nutcrackers, has a different Christmas jumper for every day of December and knows every single Christmas film by heart.⁠
❤️ The Wish-Granting. I loved the fact that the owners of the shops in Nutcracker Lane got together to grant the wishes that kids and adults made cracking nuts in the mouth of the Nutcracker. Christmas is full of magic, and they helped to believe in it.⁠
👨 James. He is probably every girl’s dream: handsome, fun, eager to help and very generous. His only fault? He doesn’t like Christmas at all!⁠

🤔 I wasn’t so sure about:⁠
How did Nia not understand that something was coming? How could she not see the twist? I can’t say more, to avoid spoilers, but it was easy to spot since the very beginning of the book.⁠

⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5⁠ A cosy book that will definitely get you into the Christmas spirit. Lovely setting, lovely characters! ⁠
