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 housesit 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?
Book Rating: 9/10
Captivating, heartwarming, and undeniably romantic!
This story is set in the majestic New York City in wintertime and takes us into the lives of two main characters; Eva, a young woman who is relentlessly optimistic and ready for love; and Lucas, a cynic who prefers to remain isolated and lonely rather than risk his heart once again.
The prose is clear and well turned. The main characters are driven, endearing, and genuinely charming. And the plot sweeps you away into a smart, modern fairytale complete with a beautiful, strong princess, a handsome, stubborn prince, riches, secrets, loss, heartbreak, and of course true love.
What more can I say? Overall this is a fabulous, festive, happy ever after that you won’t want to end.
