Review of One Wish in Manhattan by Mandy Baggot - Five *


Christmas: it’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… 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'm a great fan of Mandy and read this in the heat of a Cyprus beach! And loved it ;)

Hayley is desperate to fulfil her daughter, Angel's wish to find her father. So they fly to New York to search for him. They stay with her brother and Hayley meets his boss, Oliver Drummond. 

The sparks fly between Hayley and Oliver, which adds to the confusion when he eventually tracks down Angel's father.

I loved Oliver - he was such a warm - and frightened - character. His panic attacks and heart worries really helped to drive the story. The panic attacks are so well described, I felt so sorry for him!

I'm a real fan of New York and enjoy most books set there, but this one is right at the top of the Empire State!

I received an ARC for the publisher Bookouture and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
