It will take a Christmas miracle for two very different souls to find each other in this perfectly festive fairy tale of New York!
Hopeless romantic Eva Jordan loves everything about Christmas. She might be spending the holidays alone this year, but when she’s given an opportunity to house-sit a spectacular penthouse on Fifth Avenue, she leaps at the chance. What better place to celebrate than in snow-kissed Manhattan? What she didn’t expect was to find the penthouse still occupied by its gorgeous—and mysterious—owner.
Bestselling crime writer Lucas Blade is having the nightmare before Christmas. With a deadline and the anniversary of his wife’s death looming, he’s isolated himself in his penthouse with only his grief for company. He wants no interruptions, no decorations and he certainly doesn’t appreciate being distracted by his beautiful, bubbly new housekeeper. But when the blizzard of the century leaves Eva snowbound in his apartment, Lucas starts to open up to the magic she brings…This Christmas, is Lucas finally ready to trust that happily-ever-afters do exist?
In my opinion, this is the perfect romance set around Christmas time. Two souls, both lost in their own way, eventually find each other. This story definitely made me feel all fuzzy and warm inside!
I loved both the main characters and although they were so very different from each other, they were just perfect together. I loved Eva best though! She was so cute and warm, but tough at the same time! She knew how to bring out the best in Lucas and I loved her for that. Okay, to be totally honest: I wanted to be part of their relationship 😂
This story was set in New York and I absolutely love Christmas stories set there. New York is this superbig city, but around Christmas time it just feels (looks to me, because I’ve never been there myself, but oh well) so intimate and cosy. If I’m every going to visit New York, it will be during this time of year and Miracle on 5th Avenue made this feeling even stronger.
Miracle on 5th Avenue is part of a series called “From Manhattan with Love” and I can’t wait to read the rest of this series, but also the other books written by Sarah Morgan!
