Wish Upon a Strawberry Shortcake - Parker. J. Cole

Official Blurb:

For five dreary years Artemis Hamilton has lived with the results of his own selfish greed. He’d hurt the only woman he could ever love and ended up alone. Now, Just before Christmas she contacts him with devastating news. All he’s ever wanted was a second chance to make her his. Will wishing on a strawberry shortcake bring him the luck he needs to see his Christmas wish come true? Or is it too little, too late for his own happy ending?

My Thoughts:

This was an entertaining and enthralling short story about second chances.
It is one long chapter, and we are only in the mind of the main protagonist, Artemis Hamilton. When Art gets a call one evening to meet his ex, he drops everything and goes to her. He has always regretted their past and wishes he could make amends.
There is a very well-developed and intricate back story given, and the book certainly doesn’t feel as if it is only 46 pages. It felt like a full-blown novel; I was very impressed.
When I first chose the book, I thought it was going to be silly because of the title. However, it is actually a sad and sweet romance.
It did take a bizarre turn towards the end, and yes, I suppose it as a bit daft and far-fetched, but by then, I was invested in the story and went with it.
It is a very lighthearted and enjoyable quick read. Very festive and I’m glad I took a chance on it from Booksprout. I recommend to anyone who wants something effortless and light to read.
