Review: One Wish in Manhattan by Mandy Baggot

One Wish in ManhattanIt’s the most wonderful time of the year… to fall in love
The temperature is dropping, snow is on its way and Hayley Walker is heading for New York with one wish on her mind…to start over.

With her nine year-old daughter Angel, Hayley is ready for an adventure. From hot chocolates and horse-drawn carriage rides in Central Park, to ice-skating at the Rockefeller Centre, and Christmas shopping on 5th Avenue – they soon fall in love with the city that never sleeps.

But there’s more to New York than the bright twinkly lights and breathtaking skyscrapers. Angel has a Christmas wish of her own – to find her real dad.

While Hayley tries to fufil 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.

Determined to make her daughter’s dream come true, can Hayley dare to think her own dreams might turn into reality – 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 both realise that life isn’t just about filling the minutes…it’s about making every moment count.

Shona's review 5 of 5 stars

This was a 'must read because Mandy Baggot has written it' book,  I'll be honest I didn't read the blurb, Mandy has never let me down with one of her books yet and I had no reason to expect her to this time... Until I was reading and then Oliver Drummond appeared... the billionaire love interest. I am SO over those millionaire business men books that for a brief moment I wanted to curl up in a corner and cry whilst throwing death glares at my kindle. And then I remembered... Mandy has never let me down. And she didn't this time either.

Oliver may be a billionaire business man but he is incredibly likeable, sure he's a little prickly at work but he soon lets down his defences and its not long before we see his softer side. Hayley... I loved Hayley, so many billionaire books portray the female as submissive to the male lead and Hayley was anything but. This girl was not intimidated by him at all. 

I don't even have the words to describe this book... Whilst there is an element of sadness woven throughout the story, this book is also incredibly uplifting, reminding us to life live to the fullest, to enjoy it as much as we can with those that mean the most to us.
