My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

A wonderful and perfect title for this book and I have to say I expected something else, but I am really happy with what the story turned out to be.

The story follows Hayley Walker and her daughter Angel, who go to New York to see Hayley’s brother Dean. Hayley needs a new and fresh start and she wants to fulfil her daughter’s Christmas wish: to meet her dad.

That wish is not easy to fulfil, especially when it’s really hard to track her dad down. Hayley fights for it though and with a little help she finds him. Angel meets her dad…

Throughout this journey Hayley meets billionaire Oliver Drummond. They have a special connection from the start, but he is carrying around some issues himself, about his family and about his health. Can Hayley crack that shell?!

I loved how the story was very well structured and all the characters had their own space to share their story. We got to know Hayley and Oliver really well and Angel was just so special and adorable. The relation between mother and daughter came across really well and in a very beautiful way.

Oliver def added in another spark, he is sexy and successful, but is also surrounded by some mystery, which made the storyline more exciting.

I loved following the characters around and the setting is just wonderful, I mean New York City during Christmas time, what do you want more?!

A festive, adorable and cute story, beautifully written and perfect for Christmas time!

Hayley: Jaimie Alexander

Angel: Kristina Pakarina
