Hello lovely bookworms! Today I am delighted to be on the tour for Wish Upon a Christmas Cake by Darcie Boleyn with a guestpost from the lady herself. Isn't that cover gorgeous as well?! I am feeling very Christmassy. Read Darcie's guestpost below and there is also a delightful GIVEAWAY at the end of this post.

Dream Christmas Destination

My dream Christmas destination would have to be one with lots of snow. I’m not a sunbather as I have very pale skin and burn easily, but I do love wrapping up against the cold, especially if I get the chance to ski too!

A few years ago, I went on a skiing holiday to the French location of Chamrousse. We drove there in our big old people carrier and the journey was a long one but it added to our excitement.
After passing through Grenoble, we began an ascent that seemed to take us into another world. We went from watching dark, damp drizzle to seeing large, fluffy snowflakes; it was like being in a full on winter wonderland.

Chamrousse itself is at 1,700m with pistes and trails from 1,420m to 2,250m above sea level. Everything was covered in a thick white blanket of snow and when we parked our vehicle and got out, there was that strange, eerie hush that snow creates in an environment.

The first thing that shocked my senses was exactly how cold it was and it took a while to acclimatise, but once we’d all donned our ski gear, there was no stopping us. We spent an energetic week skiing on the beautiful mountains and breathing in the cold, crisp air. I ate like I’d never be full but at the end of the holiday I felt fit and toned because of all the exercise.

It was February when we went to Chamrousse but I’d love to go there one year for Christmas, to experience a proper white festive season with my husband and children.
Where’s your dream Christmas location?

Darcie Boleyn has a huge heart and is a real softy. She never fails to cry at books and movies, whether the ending is happy or not. Darcie is in possession of an overactive imagination that often keeps her awake at night. Her childhood dream was to become a Jedi but she hasn’t yet found suitable transport to take her to a galaxy far, far away. She also has reservations about how she’d look in a gold bikini, as she rather enjoys red wine, cheese and loves anything with ginger or cherries in it – especially chocolate. Darcie fell in love in New York, got married in the snow, rescues uncoordinated greyhounds and can usually be found reading or typing away on her laptop.
