Miracle on 5th Avenue

Eva Jordan is a hopeless romantic, despite several years of lackluster dating experiences. She's thrilled when she is asked to stock the freezer and decorate the penthouse apartment belonging to Lucas Blade, the grandson of Eva's new concierge service client. A huge blizzard is headed for Manhattan, but Eva plans to stay out of the storm, cooking, stringing up Christmas garland and admiring the views of Central Park.

Lucas, a famous mystery author, has hated the holidays since the death of his wife, and told his grandmother that he would be holed up in Vermont to work on his new book. But really, he's hiding in his city apartment, struggling with writer's block. When he ends up snowbound with a beautiful blonde, bags of groceries and an enormous Christmas tree, however, Lucas finds his hermit-like plans changing.

The third in the From Manhattan with Love series by Sarah Morgan, Miracle on 5th Avenue's charmingly happy story can easily be read as a standalone. With funny repartee between the gloomy, crime-obsessed Lucas and the cheerful, can't-sleep-without-a-nightlight Eva, and featuring lots of luscious descriptions of the food Eva prepares, the novel will leave readers laughing and quite hungry. An unsurprisingly sweet denouement and the brisk Manhattan setting make Miracle on 5th Avenue the perfect antidote for winter gloom. It is a lovely romance to curl up with in front of a Christmas tree. Romance readers and Christmas lovers will enjoy this cute story. --Jessica Howard, blogger at Quirky Bookworm
