Today’s #BookoutureXmas feature is an excerpt of Mandy Baggot’s One Wish in Manhattan.
Do you have a certain type of book that always draws you in? Usually, a Christmas-themed novel is enough to draw me in, but I also love books where the heroine transplants herself into a new city. In this case, it’s Hayley and her daughter, Angel. Together they navigate the New York waters after travelling from the UK. Told in alternate voices of Hayley and Oliver, readers are suspended into this delightful holiday romance.
Look at that cover – SWOON!
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.
