Goodreads Summary: 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 want to squeeze in one more holiday book this winter then I suggest you give Miracle on 5th Avenue a try.
Eva Jordan is a romantic who although is rather happy with the success of her up and coming business she runs with her friends, is actually struggling with the grief of her grandmother's passing. With the holidays approaching she tries to get into the festive spirit. There is also Lucas, a horror fiction author who is having a hard time believing in love after losing his wife three years before. These two are alike and yet completely different. Readers will enjoy watching them go from barely tolerable towards each other to falling in love.
Christmas is present in this novel, but that isn't all what it is all about. It centers on love, friendship, and family. One other big thing I enjoyed was the snowy NY setting. I was immersed in the setting while reading. I could close my eyes and just see the snowy wonderland.
Miracle on 5th Avenue will make you giggle, smile, tear up, and make you just want to smoosh the two main characters faces together. Yeah, I went there.
