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, 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!

About the author
JAIMIE ADMANS 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.

What can I say... I just loved this beautiful story which shows how important friends are to every one of us!
The story starts with Leo, a man with the world on his shoulders who has found himself at his lowest point in life. He is standing on the edge of the town bridge as he considers jumping off as he feels he cannot go on with life. Luckily he calls a helpline number he found on a leaflet at the side of the bridge, however in his distressed state he calls the local charity shop instead of the 24-hour counselling helpline. I will say no more about the plot - you need to go read it for yourself!
If you enjoy watching It's A Wonderful Life when it comes on TV each year then you will LOVE this book. The author clearly loves the film and has reminded me how good it is that I am planning on a Sunday afternoon cosy on the couch watching it with my little dog by my side.
The author, Jaimie Admans, has given us a gorgeous festive romance whilst dealing with the sensitive issue of depression, loneliness and the feeling of failure that so many people are struggling with but feel they can't talk about. These are generally those around us who appear to be the happiest, most cheerful and easy going which real life has shown us all time and time again.
This book made me laugh (and lots of happy tears) and cry (some sad tears) but the main feeling was of hope, of friendship, of the reminder that we should all be a bit more aware of the people around us. I read this book in one sitting, a wet but bright Saturday afternoon into the evening and once I had finished reading my world felt a much brighter place.
