Book Review and Giveaway - Miracle on 5th Avenue by Sarah Morgan

Book Synopsis
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?

My Review

Miracle on 5th Avenue is the third book in Sarah Morgan's From Manhattan With Love series.  This is a delightful series of contemporary romances with a light, upbeat tone.

 

Miracle on 5th Avenue begins when Eva Jordan gets a chance to housesit a beautiful Manhattan penthouse.  She does not realize that the penthouse's owner, Lucas Blade, is still in the penthouse. 

 

Eva is very likable and upbeat.  She is a positive person who enjoys life. Lucas is a blocked crime writer who is grieving his wife's death, and his grief makes him angry.  They seem so different, but from their great first meeting, I enjoyed their interactions.

 

The characters are well developed.  I love the dialogue in Sarah Morgan's novels.  She is a master at moving plot along with clever dialogue!

 

I recommend this entire series, but Miracle on 5th Avenue would also work fine as a standalone read.  This book is fresh and fun and full of good humor and charm.  It captures New York City at Christmas time, and is a throughly enjoyable holiday read.
