Christmas and a romance. What could be better?
Eva Jordan loves everything about Christmas. Knowing she would probably be spending the season alone, when she’s given the chance to house-sit on Fifth Avenue she jumps at the opportunity. Thinking the penthouse would be empty during her stay she’s surprised to find it still occupied by its owner, bestselling crime writer Lucas Blade. Lucas is having the nightmare before Christmas. With a deadline and the anniversary of his wife’s death looming, he wants no interruptions. But when a blizzard leaves Eva snowbound in his apartment, Lucas starts to open up to the magic she brings.
It doesn’t get much more romantic then being snowed in with a handsome man. Am I right ladies? The slow pacing of the romance between Eva and Lucas made me smile. I appreciate a slow and steady romance where they are friends first. I do not like it when they fall right into bed with each other. Miracle on 5th Avenue was a 4-star read until the end. The ending was too rushed after the slow pace of the rest of the book and that tainted my happy feelings a little bit.
I found myself very curious about the writing process while reading this book. Where do the ideas come from for the next book? Totally not what the book was about but I was very intrigued with Lucas’ character. I really loved Eva! She was spunky but had heart too. Both characters are well written and believable.
This is the third book is Ms. Morgan’s From Manhattan with Love series. I have not read the first two books and had no trouble following the story of Miracle on 5th Avenue. I didn’t feel like I was missing anything by not having read the first two books. While I was not thrilled with the ending of this book, I look forward to checking out more of Sarah Morgan’s works. I’m really interested in reading the previous books in this series.
I received an advanced copy of this book from NetGalley.
