The Description

Christmas Cookies: 1 of 52
Publication Date: November 9, 2021

Modern-day witch Cassie Moore’s cozy life turns upside down when her friend foresees the wrecking ball that threatens to destroy Cassie’s home and workplace. But Cassie isn’t giving up without a fight. She casts a well-intended spell meant to save her apartment and her job. But magic is unpredictable, especially when her friend casts a little charm of her own that has Cassie lusting after the man she desperately wants to despise.

Jack Quinn has had his eyes on Lakeside Books for years, and he couldn’t be happier the owner is finally ready to sell. He has big plans for the cozy waterfront property, but he didn’t expect to care about the store or its employees. And he never imagined he’d be drawn to a certain brown-eyed saleswoman.

Almost as if by magic.



The Review

Merry Little Wishing Spritz by Cherie Colyer is part of the Christmas Cookies series. Stories are penned by different authors in various locations and include different genres. They are short books and quick reads. Merry Little Wishing Spritz is the second one I’ve read, and I look forward to reading more. Ms. Colyer is a new-to-me author.

Merry Little Wishing Spritz is Cassie’s story and has a lot of magic since it has a paranormal bent. Cassie works in a bookstore that’s being sold so the building can be razed and an inn built in its place. 

Cassie runs into Jack at the grocery store and doesn’t realize the importance he may play in her life. There’s a definite attraction, although Cassie tries to ignore any pulls she might have to a mortal. She’s a witch and uses her magic and powers throughout the story.  

The story has a nice flow with wonderful characters, a captivating Christmas atmosphere to get me in the spirit, and some secrets that play out nicely. Different storylines are woven together well, and all seem to have the bookstore at its core. 

There’s love in the air, especially with strategically placed mistletoe. With a happily ever after and nice closure, but I’d love to meet up with these characters again. I love how whimsical the cover is with details pertinent to the story. It’s colorful and fits the Christmas vibe of the book.

Merry Little Wishing Spritz is a magical short holiday read with charming characters and a lovely ambiance that will leave you wanting more—in all the best ways!

JoAnne enjoys reading, traveling, spending time with her family, and extended family as well as with friends. She enjoys cooking and rarely uses a recipe the way it was intended but instead uses them and cooking shows to give her new ideas and suggestions. JoAnne has a huge bucket list of places she'd like to visit but has been lucky enough to travel to England, Italy, the Caribbean, Mexico, Canada, and many states in the U.S. including Hawaii, California, Nevada, Arizona, and Maine among others. Some of JoAnne's favorite genres include contemporary romance, chick-lit, romantic suspense, and historical romances including regency and those set in the west. JoAnne is on several author's street teams and enjoys interacting with many of them on Facebook as well as reading their newsletters. She has been lucky enough to meet some of her favorite authors among them Susan Mallery, Debbie Macomber, Nora Roberts, Meg Tilly, Beatriz Williams, and Marie Bostwick. JoAnne took a road trip with her sister in the fall of 2019 and visited Nora Roberts' bookstore in Boonsboro, Maryland for an authors' signing. She hopes to do more of this in the future. JoAnne leaves reviews for all books she reads on Goodreads and her reviews can be found at JoAnne currently reviews for - and which is on hiatus. Previously she reviewed for which has since closed.
