A Christmas Wish by Engy Neville

Genre: Adult, Romance
Source: I received a copy to facilitate my review. The opinions expressed here are my own.

Amy McKinsey is living her dream. In Manhattan. Working for one of the most popular lifestyle magazines in the country. Dating the perfect man, Richie Hendricks, III.
Her charmed life couldn’t be better. Christmas was gearing up to be everything she hoped for and more.
Until everything falls apart.
The dream job becomes a battle to the death when her old nemesis—and former boss—joins the team, determined to ruin her. Worse, her perfect man all but disappears when he’s forced to take over the family business.
What else could life possibly throw in her path?
In this touching and inspirational story, Amy must learn that true happiness lies in unexpected places, and only she can forge her own destiny. 

This held a lot more promise than I thought when I first began this book. I don’t read a lot of  romance books because so many of them are too mushy for me. This had that Hallmark feel once I got into it. In the beginning I was frustrated with the main character Amy. She took a giant step and moved from one coast to the other leaving behind a cheating boyfriend and an abusive employer to arrive in New York City and her dream job.  Then when she is asked out by a really dreamy guy she suddenly thinks that she isn’t worthy of someone like Richie.  I figured she would be a lot stronger with her relationship. I do understand the trust issue when your feet have been knocked out from under you.    What kept me reading, especially after her past shows up on her doorstep was the growth that I saw in Amy.  She redeemed herself. The things that irritated me were things that I saw in my own self. It hit too close to home. I realized when faced with a challenge we can move forward if we remember our past to help us become stronger instead of letting it hold us back.  I would definitely recommend this book.
