A wonderful story - Five **
Warm your heart with this perfectly festive romance!
Lucie Quigley hates Christmas. It’s the time of year when everything goes wrong in her life. So this year, when she’s asked to be a bridesmaid at her friend Petra’s Manhattan wedding, she jumps at the invitation to escape the festivities.
Dale Treharne has been best friends with Lucie for as long as he can remember. He’s used to looking out for his oldest friend and when she asks him to be her plus one, he can’t seem to find a reason to refuse. Instead, he sees it as a way to help Lucie get through what is, for her, the most miserable time of the year.
In New York, as the snow starts to fall, Lucie and Dale start to realise that their feelings run deeper than just friendship. But can they overcome their pasts, and make it a very merry Manhattan Christmas?
|What's not to love? Christmas, snow and NYC! And the fact that I love Darcie's books could only ever add up to a successful formula!|
Lucie hate Christmas, with good reason and she escapes to New York to attend the wedding of her friend. She takes her best friend Dale and as the magic of New York works its way into them, they realise their feelings are running deeper. But who will make the first move? And will changing their relationship spoil it?
On the surface, it seems like a typical Christmas romance set in Manhattan. But Lucie is a much deeper character than you would normally find in a book like this and Dale, well he is just about perfect - but in a nice way!
The fact that everyone around them gets the wrong end of the stick and thinks they are a couple adds to the story and makes for some very funny moments!
Lovely festive read - thank you to Canelo & NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Information about the Book
Title: A Very Merry Manhattan Christmas
Author: Darcie Boleyn
Release Date: 7th November 2016
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Darcie Boleyn has a huge heart and is a real softy. She never fails to cry at books and movies, whether the ending is happy or not. Darcie is in possession of an overactive imagination that often keeps her awake at night. Her childhood dream was to become a Jedi but she hasn’t yet found suitable transport to take her to a galaxy far, far away. She also has reservations about how she’d look in a gold bikini, as she rather enjoys red wine, cheese and loves anything with ginger or cherries in it – especially chocolate. Darcie fell in love in New York, got married in the snow, rescues uncoordinated greyhounds and can usually be found reading or typing away on her laptop.
