Synopsis (from Goodreads): 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?
If you know me or follow my reviews for a while, you probably know, as all the birds on branches do too, that festive stories are my favorite ones.
There’s just something magical about stories that talk about love during Christmas season.
Yet, for an avid reader (as I like to call myself) who’s in love with Christmas stories (especially festive chick lits), it is unforgivable not to read a queen of Christmas chick-lit: Sarah Morgan.
But here I am, writing my first ever review for one of her books (but it definitely won’t be the last, I assure you that!).
My very good friend Ananda from This Chick Reads told me I should try Sarah Morgan, because she is her favorite author, and since we have the similar taste in books, she knew I would like her writing.
As soon as I started reading Miracle on 5th Avenue, I understood why Ananda loves Morgan so much.
The writing style is astonishing and compelling that it easily makes the reader lose the sense of time.
Mark my words!
What will seem like just 20 minutes or reading will probably be 1 hour, because the story is so entertaining, you will not be able to let it go.
Everytime I picked up the book, I had a hard time to part my ways with it (but I had to because, you know, real life and stuff…).
The story follows Eva, a hopeless romantic who always looks at the bright side of life.
When she gets an opportunity to house-sit an apartment of a criminal writer, she can’t pass it.
Only the thing is, Lucas isn’t away from his home as she was told he would be, and we find it out in a pretty interesting and slightly humorous way.
Eva and Lucas couldn’t be more opposite, but yet, they are so right for each other.
In Miracle of 5th Avenue, we get to witness how attraction turns into love slowly but surely.
Incredible descriptions of New York during Christmas Time, loveable side characters you will probably fall in love with, and fairy tale vibes this story will give you are what highlights Miracle on 5th Avenue from other festive pieces of work.
I am so thankful I had an opportunity to read this book, and I am so grateful that Ananda recommended this author to me, because now I want more. I want to read as many books by Sarah Morgan as I can (read: all of them!!).
