Hopeless romantic Eva loves everything about Christmas. Even if she is spending it alone housesitting a spectacular Fifth Avenue apartment. What she didn’t expect was to find the penthouse still occupied by its gorgeous–and mysterious–owner.
Bestselling crime writer, and notorious cynic, Lucas Blade has hidden himself away in his penthouse with a deadline looming. But when the blizzard of the century leaves Eva and Lucas snowbound together will Lucas finally see the magic, and happily ever after that Christmas can bring?
I've read a few of Sarah Morgan's books but not in this trilogy. However, the book stands alone and so you can read it without having read the previous books. You can always rely on Sarah for a nice romance and a Christmassy read.
I love that this book has the love interest as Lucas Blade, he was a great character and the fact that he was a crime writer (one of my fav genres) just made it perfect teamed with New York and Christmas! Sarah paints a lovely picture of a snow covered Manhattan with the sparked relationship between Lucas and Eva.
The characters are so well written that I could really visualise them in my minds eye and even begin to second guess how they were about to react. Eva has some great comedic lines which I loved to read.
Every so often it is nice just to escape to another world and Sarah certainly allows you to do that. With trips to Tiffany's, walks down 5th avenue and snow in Central Park. A magical read - especially the Snowflake Ball at the Plaza Hotel.
I'm giving this book 4 out of 5 stars. My thanks go to Negalley for an advance copy of the book to review.
