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?
Miracle on 5th Avenue by Sarah Morgan
It’s the time of year to start gathering those Christmas Miracle-Sweet Romance tales that could melt the heart of the Grinch. Sweet as sugar plums, spicy as a fresh cinnamon stick, Miracle on 5th Avenue by Sarah Morgan is a frothy delight, as heart-warming as fresh cocoa after a day spent sledding, as frustrating as a package wrapped a little too well to be investigated without detection and a great way to get those Holiday Spirits ramped up!
Two people, one a dark and brooding author who has lost his words, one a ray of pure sunshine that almost sparkles, play the game of love, winner take all.
Let the Holiday games begin as Eva, a glass-half-full kind of girl and Lucas, a glass half-empty kind of guy become the stars in one grandmother’s attempts at playing Cupid.
Hard as Eva tries to bring joy into Lucas’ life, he resists until he discovers she is his muse and his writing gets back on track. Shiny and bright Eva knows pain, she’s faced it, but unlike Lucas who chooses to let it consume him, Eva holds nothing back, not boundaries, filters or her love of life! Can she break through the barriers Lucas has erected around his heart? If not, can she walk away with a smile for what might have been?
Sweet, humorous, and fun, from start to finish, once again we discover that all you need is love. Don’t examine it, don’t tear it apart looking for flaws, embrace it and trust that true love will never let you down. I could almost hear the sleigh bells jingling and see the snow falling in this delightful and upbeat tale sure to make you smile! (Could someone grab the Mistletoe, please?)
I received an ARC edition from Harlequin in exchange for my honest review.
