Publisher's Summary

What if you got exactly what you wanted this Christmas? Find out why you should be careful what you wish for in best-seller Chrissie Manby's (Getting Over Mr Right, Seven Sunny Days) exclusive Christmas novella.
It’s the 1st of December and Milly Arnold is facing a miserable Noel. Newly single, the last thing she wants to do is join her settled sister and her young family for the first of their traditions: the writing of the Christmas lists. However Milly’s nephews have other ideas and insist she write a list of her own (with illustrations to help Father Christmas decipher her terrible handwriting). Milly duly makes a request for a bunch of roses, some chocolate and a new pair of shoes. She doesn’t expect to get any of it. However, that very day, a box of chocolates appears, swiftly followed by the roses. And when Milly wins a voucher to buy a pair of shoes, she begins to wonder if there’s something in this Christmas cosmic ordering after all. She quickly amends her first letter. However, as Christmas gets closer and the items she requested appear in increasingly unexpected ways, Milly starts to worry that Santa might be taking her list just a little too literally.

lovely light hearted story

What did you like most about The Christmas List?

I absolutely loved listening to how milly wrote her Christmas lists and sent them up the chimney and it goes to show if you do wish for something you might receive it in an unexpected way

What does Rebecca Courtney bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I loved how she had read with expression and made me feel like I wanted to be read to again rather than being annoyed at the fact someone is reading the story
