Review of A Miracle at Macy's by Lynn Marie Hulsman - Five *


One lost dog. Two lonely hearts. A Manhattan Christmas full of magic.
Shy homebody Charlotte is planning her usual quiet Christmas celebration: Turkey for two for her and her beloved pet dog Hudson. Only, this year, little Hudson decides to take matters into his own paws and give his favourite human a holiday adventure she’ll never forget.
When Hudson runs away the week before Christmas, Charlotte is devastated. She’d rescued him from the trash years before and gave him a place in her home – and her heart. But with the help of uptight Englishman Henry, Charlotte ends up on a magical treasure hunt around Manhattan to find her furry, four-legged bestie.
Spotted in Central Park as one of Santa's Little Helpers, or last seen in the arms of a supermodel in Times Square, Hudson leads Charlotte and Henry on a very merry dance around the Big Apple, where love, (or should that be Christmas?!) actually is all around.


Wow!! What a wonderful book! It's got everything - a cute dog, New York at Christmas, a handsome, withdrawn englishman and an introverted heroine.

I adored the description of Manhattan and I have to say that the city was really one of the major characters. I visited NYC in early December 2013 so it was all very familiar and I really felt as if I was there again!

Hudson was an amazing little dog and I loved the way Lynn Marie featured him in all the tourist places.

Watching Charlotte move out of her comfort zone in an attempt to find her lost dog and the way her relationship developed with Henry was lovely to see. Her aunt drove me mad, but I think she was supposed to!

There is only one word that sums up this fabulous book: Believe!!!
