One night will change their lives forever…

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!

My Thoughts
Although at its heart, It's a Wonderful Night is a great festive romance, there are some serious issues behind the story. Mental health, suicidal feelings, depression, town centre decline and its effects on a community are all intrinsic to the story. It makes for a read with a bit of bite and relevance.

I loved the link to the film, It's a Wonderful Life and all the echoes of the small- town story. It is a perfect heart-warming story. Georgia has a heart of gold and manages to get herself into an embarrassing situation as she tries to protect Leo from finding out that it was her who spoke to him on the telephone when he was at his lowest ebb. It has a real feeling of resurgence and hope, just right for this time of the year. It certainly passed my test of a good read- I turned right back to the beginning and wanted to read it again.

In short: Love and friendship blossom even in the direst of circumstances.   
About the Author

Jaimie is a 32-year-old English-sounding Welsh girl with an
awkward-to-spell name. She lives in South Wales and enjoys writing, gardening, watching horror movies, and drinking tea, although she’s seriously considering marrying her coffee machine. She loves autumn and winter, and singing songs from musicals despite the fact she’s got the voice of a dying hyena. She hates spiders, hot weather, and cheese & onion crisps. She spends far too much time on Twitter and owns too many pairs of boots.

She will never have time to read all the books she wants to read.

She is the author of chick-lit romantic comedies The Chateau of Happily Ever Afters, The Little Wedding Island, It’s a Wonderful Night, and Kismetology, and she has also written young-adult romantic comedies Afterlife Academy, Not Pretty Enough, and North Pole Reform School.
