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?


I love stories set in New York! For this New Yorker, it just gives me a little bit of the reminder of living and working in the bustling New York City, even when it gets "snowed in." Miracle on 5th Avenue is the third full novel of the Manhattan With Love series from Sarah Morgan. I really enjoy Sarah's books, but this time, I mind as well get it out. I think some of the venereal nuances and actual intimacy was a little much. However, that doesn't take too much out of a story I really had fun reading. It's set during Christmas time! And that's New York City during Christmas - from snow to the lovely high rises, and the friendliness of New Yorkers (yes, you read that right).  

Eva is a dreamer and she's honest to a fault, but that makes her unique and hilarious! As to Lucas, he's a brooder and a writer. That makes for some love from this booknerd already.  It's interesting to see how there two, one anti-holidays and anti-social and the other, a total social butterfly interacts with each other when they are stuck together in a beautiful apartment! Funny, and romantic, Miracle on 5th Avenue will remind you a bit of Breakfast at Tiffany's and that makes it a sweet read. 


For my clean readers, please note this novel contains minor profanity and multiple intimate scenes.
