A Christmas Wish (A Manhattan Dream) by Engy Neville – Review by Robin Rankin

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A Christmas Wish by Engy Neville was a sweet story with real life moments thrown in just to hook you a little more.

Amy was a little too hippie for me. What kind of person willing gives up coffee? Someone obviously not in their right mind. But seriously, Amy moves across the country and fully embraced the out with the old, in with the new mentality which I applaud except for the coffee. The new includes a new job (her dream job), new friends and a man. She is totally in love with her New York life including the winters (again questioning her sanity) and all that comes with them.

This is the first time I’ve read anything by Ms. Neville and I did enjoy it. I will keep my eye out for her in the future.

A Christmas Wish by Engy Neville is the second book in the Manhattan Dream series. The story is about Amy McKinsey and her life in New York. She has moved from LA to start a new job, has met a dreamy guy, and is enjoying life. The story reminded me of a Hallmark movie because everything was very upbeat and happy to the point of being a bit unrealistic. As I got further in things started to not be so perfect and happy. Amy is dealt with some problems and has to decide how to handle them. She grows as a woman and a character. I was glad to see her progress as a person and come into herself. Overall this was an enjoyable read and I will keep an eye out for more from this author in the future.

A Christmas Wish by Engy Neville, A Manhattan Dream
5-stars

This was a sweet romance novel that featured drama and tragedy. There was amazing character development with the main character Amy. She was wonderful. I loved following her story as she met and began a romance with the gorgeous Richie as well as watch her progress in her career. I would not have had the guts to move across the country like she did for her dream job. I felt that by doing so she demonstrated great courage and focus. The character Sarah was not one of my favorite people toward the beginning of this novel she completely surprised me later on. This was such a wonderful read!

Engy Neville is a new author to me and I could not have picked a better story than A Christmas Wish. Neville has written characters like they could really be the people in my town. The story line is a great make me feel good story. She keeps it moving and shows that wishes just may come true. I have always wished upon the first star I see every night. This story just gave me more reasons to wish upon a star and to remember that I can make my own little magic myself if I just believe.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A CHRISTMAS WISH is (obviously) a holiday story filled with dreams and wishes.

The story starts at The Hamptons with a fun-filled vacation and ends in the cold Manhattan winter. The times in between Summer and Winter allowed for the characters to work out some stuff and have a few “adventures” along the way.

I always feel bad when a book just isn’t my cup of tea and this is one of them. I never connected with any of the characters and felt like situations were written to make what could have been a lovely short story into a full length novel. There were so many cliches that I found myself wanting to roll my eyes often.

Here is what I did like about the book:

The meet cute – I enjoyed the fact that the female protagonist could experience such joy
Friendships – Every female should have a friend who always has her back
Amy’s love of her job – I wish everyone got as much joy out of their job as she did at the beginning of the story
Closed door sexy times – It was refreshing not to have a front row seat for every encounter

I always appreciate the fact that an author works so hard to bring their words to the page. Just because this book wasn’t for me, doesn’t mean it’s not the perfect book for you.

A Christmas Wish
By Engy Neville

A Christmas Wish by Engy Neville is the first book I have read by this author, and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with the way the book turned out. This book centers around Amy and Richie. Although I enjoyed the book, I really did have a hard time coming close to liking Amy, Ritchie however was a different story, I took to his character straight away. This book will have you hooked in no time I am sure, in some place if you are liking me you will be eager to turn the page just to see what is going on. I am also hoping Abby’s story gets written, kinda liked her character to. Thank you Engy for a wonderful book.

4 Stars

This is my first book by this author and I really enjoyed it. I loved the writing and the style of writing and the way it flowed. I read it in 2 sittings and really want to look at what else this author has available.

The only problem I had with the whole book was the character of Amy…I just could not connect with her no matter how hard I tried, and that is not the authors fault that is all on me. I didn’t hate her I just never could find a way to understand her. On the other hand Richie was amazing and he is what had me hooked on this story, and the ending was perfect. I also loved the little bit of Christmas I was able to hang on to for just a bit longer this year.

I can not wait to look at what else this author has available because as I said the writing style was spot on for me.

A Christmas Wish (A Manhattan Dream) by Engy Neville is a great book about discovering who you are and what you are capable of.
This book i found to be a great easy read, one you could sink into and lose yourself in easily for a few hours. The characters were interesting and easy to get along with, although not overly complex. However that is exactly what I wanted from a book when I picked this up. The story was well paced and kept its momentum to the end. This was an overall enjoyable book and I would definitely read more by this author.

This is the first book I have read from this author and it was a joy to read. I absolutely love Christmas stories and this talented author exceeded my expectations. This book is part of A Manhattan Wish series. It can be read as a stand alone just like I did. This story drew me in on the first page. It only took a few hours to devour this incredible book.

Amy McKinsey is living her dream life in her favorite city Manhattan. She works for one of the top fashion magazines out there. Amy goes on a trip and she meets a very beautiful man. She can’t get Richie out of her mind. Amy and Richie gets to know each other and they become the perfect couple. Christmas is fastly approaching and she can’t wait. She feels like this is going to be the best Christmas she has ever had. Amy has the dream job and the perfect man. Then everything starts to in unravel. Richie has to take over the family business and they hardly see each other. Her job is now a battle because her old boss joins the team. Amy is at her wits end. What else could go wrong? Will Amy be able to find happiness in her life or will her life continue to unravel?

I absolutely loved this book. The storyline has it all romance, drama, and finding yourself. You will fall in love these characters. Amy is a sweetheart that can bring some spunk. She knows what she wants and she wants the happily ever after. Richie is very charming. He is head over heels for Amy but he also has a job to do. This story will put you in a joyful mood. The ending was perfect and I can’t wait to see what this author will write next.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A Christmas wish is a great read. A journey through life as Amy. Amy has a rough past but her future is looking good. I feel like a lot of us can relate to Amy, Although I have to admit I wish I had friends like she does. When Richie Comes along everything seems to fall into place with Amy. Although at first I was kind of suspicious of him he turned out to be one of my favorite characters of all time. From beginning to end this book will keep you reading and wanting more. I would love to learn more about Richie’s sister Abby and her new beau. This is my first book that I have read by Engy Neville and I would read more books by her. Its worth the read you wont be disappointed.
