Title: In A New York Minute
Author: Claudia Carroll
Date: March 26th, 2015
Synopsis (from Goodreads):
Love isn’t always like it is in the movies … or is it?
Amy has moved to the city that never sleeps, and now she’s looking for love.
But after a string of dating disasters it seems that finding Mr. Right isn’t quite as easy as Amy first thought.
Following in the footsteps of her favourite New York movies Amy is determined to have that romantic Manhattan moment. But like all good romances – love often turns up in the most unexpected of places…
A heart-warming, 23 page short story from best-selling author, Claudia Carroll, this is the perfect read for Valentine’s Day.
In A New York Minute is a short story, so I’ll try to make my review as short as it can be.
Claudia Carroll is an author I can’t help but notice on my Goodreads page every once in a while, in a „similar books“ section. As a devoted chick lit reader, browsing books is what I do on regular basis, so it is no surprise that her books cought my attention with their beautiful and sweet covers (all of her covers are gorgeous, that is a fact! Even this one is so astonishing, I could stare at it and forget about time).
The one and main reason why I decided to pick In A New York Minute as my first Claudia Carroll read is that it was short and it was free.
From that, I figured out I can decide whether I should buy some of her already released work.
In 23 pages Claudia Carroll managed to grab my attention, make me appreciate her writing style and won me as a reader.
The story follows woman named Amy who moved to New York and is trying it’s dating scene.
The writer described New York so well that the whole time while reading I had that New York vibe (you know, the one you have when watching Sex and the City).
It would be a shame if I’d talk too much about this story since it is pretty short and giving anything away would be a sin, but I willd tell you that out of all the reads I had last month, In A New York Minute was my favorite.
I liked everything about it and the only thing that I would change is a little detail closer to the end, but even with that it was a great read that I am glad I picked up.
I highly recommend it to every chick lit fan.
It is free and short, so it is a win case.
As for me, I can’t wait to read Carroll’s full lenght novels and it makes me so happy to see that there are a lot of them to choose from.

I’m just sad that it was such a short read for you. 😦 This is why I read series and stuff so that I can get more of these tore and have more time to spend with the characters. But I’m glad you still enjoyed reading it anyway! ❤
Awesome review, lovely! ❤

I also love series because of that same reason. If I get attached to characters, I like to spend as much time as I can with them.
But weirdly, I still prefer standalones over series.
I rarely read short stories or novellas, so it was nice that this one was a win.
Thank you so much for the kind words. 🙂
This sounds really good, but I can’t figure out where to get it! It doesn’t show as available on Amazon or Barnes and Noble. 😦

I got it on Amazon, via Kindle app, and I got it in July, so I think it should be availabe still. Sometimes if you’re browsing trough books there it says it is not available at the moment but you click on the book anyway you can see you can download it.
Give it a try one more time, I think you should be able to download it. I have Amazon US for ebooks, and it worked.
