January 2016 Featured Book: One Wish in Manhattan by Mandy Baggot

One Wish in ManhattenIt’s not often that I find a book I am willing to recommend to others as a must read. But for those moments when I do, I really want to go out of my way to recommend them to fellow bookworms who may be in need of something new to read. My choices always come those books that receive four or five stars from the month prior. This is the first time, I’ve allowed you, the readers of these books to actually vote on which one should be featured. Well the results are in and you guys clearly love Mandy Baggot’s One Wish in Manhattan.

I found this book on Netgalley and thought the cover was adorable. I’ve been trying to branch out from my standard paranormal or crime mystery books. Now, for the most part, I still don’t read descriptions. I don’t know what it is but I feel like it ruins part of the book for me. And when I read books like this, I’m glad I don’t. I am not a big fan of romances in general and it’s books like this that make me feel differently about that. It’s fluffy, with the right mix of humor and romance. So to me, this book was a home run. I was rooting for the two main characters to make it work and I really enjoyed the idea of a book about a single mother. As a single mother, myself, I could relate to all of the concerns and fears that Hayley is experiencing. Even if our circumstances are different, there’s no worst fear than the idea you may let your child down.

To read more on my thoughts of One Wish in Manhattan, you can view my review:

This book is a great holiday romance that is guaranteed to leave you smiling and crying at the end. Most importantly, the true love story is that of a mother and her daughter. But the book is more than a romance, it’s a story of acceptance and moving forward after allowing yourself to be held back for so long. It’s inspiring, especially when it’s well known that the holidays tend to be the hardest time of year for most people…. Read More
