Posted October 6, 2015 by thischickreads in review / 0 Comments

Hi guys,

today we have an extract from Mandy Baggot‘s latest on the blog. ‘One Wish in Manhattan’ was published by Bookouture just 4 days ago and we’ll be reviewing it soon. But safe to say we loved the content as much as we loved the gorgeous cover! Now, few words from Mandy about her latest festive book and an extract from Chapter 1. As always, order links will be bellow so you can grab this fantastic Christmassy read after reading the extract. It’s currently 99p for the kindle so make sure you don’t miss it!

Off to you, Mandy!



Christmas is coming! The tins of Celebrations and Quality Street are in the shops and soon reindeers will swoon from Christmas card shelves and the sound of Michael Buble will be all Spotify users crave.

For me Christmas is all about the food and drink! Pass me the mince pies (icing on top not pastry), hot chocolate, Yule log, pate on crackers and cheese board. Why do we only get the things we really like at Christmas time? I could have pate all year round if I wanted but I don’t! It’s a treat and it doesn’t matter that I start buying it in November and have to constantly restock! It’s Christmas!

Turkey, stuffing, roast potatoes and not forgetting, sprouts (no one really likes them but we have to have them!). Eating until you can’t move and feel sick and then doing it all over again! YAY!

One Wish in Manhattan is my very first full-on Christmas book and I hope it brings some New York magic to your reading lists.




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 breath-taking 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.
