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 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.

Firstly thank you to Bookouture for my copy of this book via Netgalley. I love  Christmas and it’s my dream to visit New York at Christmas time so this book instantly appealed to me.

Hayley and her daughter Angel are going to visit her brother, Dean in New York for Christmas! I really loved Hayley. She loves her daughter and wants nothing more than for her too be happy. When she hears he daughter’s wish she does everything she can to make it come true. Angel is such a great character. She is smart beyond her years and she made me laugh on so many occasions.

When Hayley meets Oliver Drummond she doesn’t know what to think. Oliver is known for playing the field and he’s just going to distract her from the real reason she came to New York. When the two keep meeting its clear there’s a connection of some kind.

Mandy’s writing is funny and engaging. This story is perfect for the Christmas season. It’s full of hope, love and family.  I can’t wait to pick up another of Mandy’s books in the near future.
