There’s nothing so magical as Christmas in New York…

Santa is coming to New York!

Snow is falling, excitement is high and the delicious scent of chocolate drifts along Fifth Avenue the Candied Apple Cafe is ready for Christmas! And no one is busier than publicist Iona Summerlin. With so much to do, she doesn’t have time to think about men, dating, or the fact her last boyfriend ditched her for her brother Relationships are off the menu!

Hotel boss Mads Eriksson is not looking forward to the first Christmas since losing his wife. His six-year-old daughter Sofia has lost her belief in Christmas magic along with her mother, and he has no idea what to do. But an unusually festive business meeting at the Candied Apple and meeting the beautiful Iona starts to defrost Mads’ frozen heart, and suddenly life seems full of light and sparkle again.

If only they dare to believe, maybe all their Christmas dreams will come true!



I have been lucky enough to visit New York on several occasions but top of my holiday wish list is to see New York at Christmas and this book has made me even more desperate to get there!!

I loved the whole book from the cover to the last page.  The story was well planned and really well executed – I loved the characters, they made the book come to life for me, it was an excellent read.  The atmosphere created was great and I love reading about places that I have visited as being able to envisage where they are and to feel that I have visited the places in the books or could have walked the same streets as the characters.

A magical read – made me feel all warm and festive – 5 stars!!
