Hello everyone and happy 1st day of Blogmas! I’m so excited to kick off an entire month of daily blogging with my stop for the It’s a Wonderful Night blog tour. Today I’m going to be sharing my review as well as how you can win a fun prize pack (UK only, sorry!)!
Alright, let’s get started:
Title: It’s a Wonderful Night by Jaimie Admans
Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Holiday
Published by: HQ Digital (Oct. 5th, 2018)
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 received an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. A huge thank you to the author and Neverland Blog Tours!*
It’s a Wonderful Night is such a sweet, romantic, and festive story! This book pulled me in at chapter one and left me glued to it until the end. It was one of those story that just left me feeling all of the emotions. There were some moments where I was literally laughing out loud and other moments where I found myself tearing up. This novel was so completely well done!
The characters in It’s a Wonderful Night were just so lovely. I absolutely adored them all. I loved seeing Georgia and Leo’s relationship grow, and I loved getting to know them individually.
Another thing that I appreciated about this book was that while it could be considered a romcom, it’s so much deeper than that. It deals with mental illness in an incredibly honest way.
This book is also filled with so many references to It’s a Wonderful Life! Being that I’ve only seen the movie once, years ago, I’m sure I still missed many more of the references. I will say, though, it really made me want to watch the movie now!
Overall, this was such a lovely novel. It’s so charming and heartwarming. Jaimie Admans did such an excellent job balancing the lightheartedness and seriousness of this story. I would definitely recommend It’s a Wonderful Night to anyone looking for a sweet, romantic, and Christmas-y read!

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.
