One Christmas Wish

Today we have a special edition of Book Spotlight for Christmas! I'm featuring Mandy Baggot's book One Wish In Manhattan! 

The temperature is dropping, snow is on its way and Hayley Walker is heading for New York with one wish … to start over.

With her daughter Angel, Hayley is ready for adventure. But there’s more to New York than twinkly lights and breathtaking skyscrapers. Angel has her own Christmas wish – to find her real dad.

While Hayley tries to fulfil her daughter’s wish, she crosses paths with billionaire
Oliver Drummond. Restless and bored with fast living, there’s something intriguing about him that has Hayley hooked.

Can Hayley dare to think her own dreams might come true – could A New York Christmas turn into a New York Forever?

Travel to the Big Apple this Christmas and join Hayley and Oliver as they realise life isn’t just about filling the minutes … it’s about making every moment count.

I've been a fan of Mandy Baggot books for a long time, but this is her first Christmas book, so I was super excited to read it! She did not disappoint. One Wish in Manhattan was a lovely festive story about a mom and her daughter who are determined to have a special holiday in New York, her daughter Angel's special Christmas wish. Facing the new year with no job and being a single mom is stressful on Hayley, but she takes Angel to New York anyway, determined to find Angel's real dad. Upon arriving in New York she meets Oliver Drummond, a billionaire who hides secrets about his family's past, and lives in constant fear of it. (I found this part to be a bit repetitive, but not enough to ruin the story for me). Because of this family issue he pushes everyone away from him and doesn't want to have any close relationships. He figures what's the point if the family curse falls to him, (which he later decides to get tested for). Hayley, however, is different and Oliver finds himself falling for her. I don't want to spoil the end, but it's heartwarming and leaves you filled with the Christmas spirit. Oliver and Hayley are shining examples of why sometimes we all need a little bit of Christmas magic from the big man above.

I give One Wish in Manhattan 5 cups of cheerful Christmas coffee!
