Georgia Bailey is closing up her little charity shop in Oakbarrow when she gets a mysterious late night call from a stranger, threatening to jump off the town’s bridge.
Something about the man’s voice is faintly familiar but all she can do is stay on the line and, after talking for hours and losing sense of time passing, coax him back from the edge.
The next morning, Georgia walks to work, buys a festive latte from Leo (who she’s had a crush on for months!) at the local coffee shop, and is shocked when she suddenly recognizes the voice from last night…
A heartwarming festive love story that reminds us that even in the darkest of times, hope is always just around the corner!
I’d like to thank Jaimie Admans and Jenny In Neverland for inviting me to take part in this wonderful blog tour.
I could not put it’s A Wonderful Night down. It had all the qualities of an amazing read that I look for. Romance, realism and the wow factor!
It tackles the subject of men’s mental health with compassion, understanding and warmth. This may sound like a strange subject to broach in a Christmas novel, but it works perfectly. This book is definitely not doom and gloom, there’s lots of laugh out loud moments too.
I was hooked from the first chapter when Georgia takes the phone call from a man who is about to jump off a bridge. He’s rang the wrong number from a leaflet he’s found, instead of ringing the counselling helpline he’s rang the local charity shop.
I adored both Georgia and Leo in equal measures. Bernard, the local homeless man is such a great addition to the story, the friendship he has with Georgia and Leo was a joy to watch develop. I really don’t want to give the plot away, I’ll just say this gorgeous book made my heart burst and will stay with me for a very long time.
I’ve never seen the classic Christmas film It’s a wonderful life which is made reference to throughout the story, guess what’s on my list of films to watch this Christmas?!
This is easily one of my favourite reads of 2018, actually I’ll correct that, it’s hands down one of my top three all time favourite reads.
