Summary

Cosy up with a mug of hot chocolate for some festive sparkle from best seller Jessica Redland.

Everyone is getting into the festive spirit on Castle Street - snow is falling, fairy lights are glistening and Christmas shopping is underway.

But for Tara Porter, owner of thriving cafe The Chocolate Pot, this is the most difficult time of the year. From the outside, Tara is a successful businesswoman and pillar of the community. Behind closed doors, she is lonely. 

With a lifetime of secrets weighing on her shoulders, she has retreated from all friends, family and romance, and shut her real self away from the world. After all, if you don't let them in, they can't hurt you. She's learnt that the hard way.

But as the weight of her past becomes heavier and an unexpected new neighbour moves onto the street - threatening the future of her cafe - Tara begins to realise that maybe it's time to finally let people back in and confront her history. It could just change her life forever.

Starry Skies Over the Chocolate Pot Café was originally released as Christmas at the Chocolate Pot Café. Now re-released with a new title and new cover, this version has been freshly edited and features several new chapters.

Heavenly!

such a pretty story. For me, there aren't enough superlatives to explain how good the narrator was.

Feel good story

Lovely, gentle story, perfect for fending off the post Christmas blues- it’s a wintry story but not overly festive, so just right for January xx
