Description

Jake Mistletoe is the North Pole's resident bad boy. Half elf, half human, he is the only child of a single mother who just happens to be Santa's head elf. Fed up with his wild, partying ways and lack of direction, his mother sends him to the real world for a dose of reality.

Lucy Prescott is all alone in this world. Since the death of the grandparents who raised her, she has struggled to keep their Christmas novelty shop running in a dated, dying Christmas-themed tourist town.

When Jake appears in town, magic seems to be in the air. For the first time in ages, life holds excitement, and Lucy finds herself wondering … what if?

A short, sweet confection of a Christmas romance. Jake, son of an elf and a human father, is drifting aimlessly through life in a haze of debauchery. Fed up, his mother sends him to the human world to figure out his priorities and make something of himself. His chance encounter with the owner of a shop in a dying, Christmas-themed tourist town winds up changing him more than he'd ever expected.

Pick this up for light, low-angst, slightly steamy holiday fun!

Many thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review!

Chocolate Chip Christmas Wishes is part of the Christmas Cookies series.
Jake Mistletoe is half human half elf who has really lost his way and his mother knows she has to step in, or he will never figure out what life is all about. She sends him into the real world to help him out.
Lucy Prescott is running a Christmas novelty shop alone since the death of her grandfather.
When Jake shows up the world seems to change not only for him but Lucy as well.
You well need to read this amazing novella to find out what happens for them both.
Thank you NetGalley and The Wild Rose Press, Inc for this book. This is my personal review.

. . .“Welcome to Christmasville where it’s Christmas all year long.”
He turned to her. “Let me guess. I died and this is Hell.”. . .

Jake Mistletoe. the North Pole’s resident bad boy, is half-elf, half-human. As the only child of a single mother, who just happens to be Santa’s head elf, he’s led a spoiled, charmed life as godson to Santa and Mrs. Claus, and has wanted for nothing. Fed up with Jake’s wild, partying ways and lack of direction, his mother sends him to the real world for a dose of reality and to get in touch with his human side.
Lucy Prescott is all alone in this world. She left college and abandoned her dream of running her own business to care for the ailing grandparents who raised her. Since they died, she has struggled to keep their Christmas novelty shop running in a dated, dying Christmas-themed tourist town. But she is running low on hope and it’s hard to feel the holiday spirit when you live it all day, every day.
After Jake appears in the tiny town in Northern New York, magic seems to fill the air. And what’s up with the enticing aroma of chocolate chip cookies that seems to follow everywhere he goes? For the first time in ages, life holds excitement and Lucy finds herself wondering what if?

Our Review: Author Nicole McCaffrey, known for unique settings, enchanting characters and snappy, laugh-out-loud dialogue, does not fail her readers with Chocolate Chip Christmas Wishes, a current release out of the Christmas Cookie series by the Wild Rose Press.
In order to truly enjoy this terrific tale of an elf and a hard-working selfless shop owner, one needs to get ready for one hoot after another. Jake is a darling; Lucy owns a heart as big as all outdoors. Neither is about to give up on their dreams. So take a visit to Christmasville, meet Lucy, Jake and the rest of the gang who inhabit this delightful holiday-themed village, and prepare to have your heart warmed like never before.

On a scale of 1-5, Chocolate Chip Christmas Wishes deserves a 7.

A big thank you to NetGalley and Wild Rose Press for the ARC. I am voluntarily reviewing this book. Well, this is actually a novella, so very quick read, as it is short. Jake Mistletoe is half elf and half human and is bored, and the bad boy. He meets Lucy and sparks fly. This is a cute, funny, romance with a couple of surprises. 3.5 stars

A sweet (pun intended) story with lots of scents involved - mostly cooking of cookies scents - .
Nicely written and amusing - because of the cookies - and all the adventures got up to by the main characters - and I am seriously concerned about the number of authors writing about cakes and cookies - I wonder if they are encouraging or sublimating diabetes and their sweet tooth. I am left drooling over ice-cream eating and ...
Very readable in the genre.

I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher through netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This book is well written and the characters are described well. I really enjoyed this fast paced Christmas Romance story. Lucy and Jake's characters were phenomenal. This story is set in Christmasville, New York. The Christmasville community is tight knit where everyone is family. This ebook is in stores for $2.99 (USD).

Really sweet read! Easy to follow and quick to get through. The story is not super clean from a romance perspective, but I always flip thought all of that and move forward. It is always fun to see where the love will begin and what will happen from it. You will enjoy this easy read filled with twists and turns and of course, a happy ending!

Jake is half elf, half human, and his elf mom is tired of his spoiled attitude. She sends him down to learn how to be human, and he meets Lucy. A cute and fun holiday read, and kept my interest throughout. Recommend this one for an easy holiday romance.

Chocolate Chip Christmas Wishes (Christmas Cookies). By Nicole McCaffrey. 2021. The Wild Rose Press, Inc (ARC eBook).

An entertaining Christmas romance in a small town that has lost its Christmas spirit. Jake and Lucy are wonderful characters with a happily-ever-after that is perfect for the holiday season.

Jake is the son of Santa Claus’ head elf and a human, and he didn’t get his mother’s magic powers? He’s the North Pole’s bad boy, a charming womanizer who loves to party and easily gets into trouble. When he finds himself among the humans, he shows that there’s more depth in him than meets the eye by never hesitating to use the magic snowglobe his mother left him in order to improve the life of the young woman who took him in.

Lucy is a bit desperate because her Christmas novelty shop, which she inherited from her grandparents, is floundering, just like all the village’s shops. In fact, clients are not attracted to a Christmas themed village anymore, and a grouped sell to an estate developer is about to be signed. She is kind hearted, she’s very attached to her shop and to traditions, and she’s wonderstruck when little miracles begin to occur around her.

Of course the story is short, but the author created plausible characters all the same, including in some of her secondary characters, even if other are exaggerated like the hero’s jealous ex. Of course there’s a romance but more serious topic are addressed like the desertification of the villages to the benefit of the big towns, and the consequences of online shopping on small business, even if all this is quite fast because of the format.

But most of all, between the cute little love story, the little “miracles” created by the hero and others nobody knows the origin, and the discovery by Jake of a past his mother hid from him, all of this in a Christmas atmosphere infused of nostalgia, reminded me of a Christmas made-for-tv movie that we watch under a cover with a cup of tea or hot chocolate.

To resume, once again a lucky draw with this novella who ends up being my favorite among the three when it was not my first choice.
