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?

There is a certain quality to Hallmark Channel movies; they are usually captivating romances with realistic characters that overcome struggles to find happiness.  Miracle on 5th Avenue by Sarah Morgan would make a wonderful Hallmark Channel Christmas movie!

Christmas in New York City can be a magical time, the lights and holiday cheer permeate the city.  But for some this festive atmosphere only serves as a reminder of the happiness they are missing.  Lucas Blade, a best-selling crime writer, is dreading the holidays for this very reason.  A book deadline and the pending anniversary of his wife’s death prompt him to lie to his family about taking a trip to New England and hole up in his Manhattan penthouse.  His lovable grandma hates to see him unhappy and hires Eva Jordan, who has assisted her on many occasions, to surprise Lucas in preparing his penthouse for Christmas and filling his freezer with her amazing dishes.  A building blizzard outside is nothing compared to the shock Eva has that the penthouse not vacant and the surprise Lucas receives, but not in the way his grandmother intended, when a strange women comes waltzing into his home.

I know you might be thinking this sounds like a cheesy canned romance, but it’s really not.  Sarah’s characters are rich and unique, I loved Eva’s optimistic personality and snarky attitude. She is such a wonderful writer, she artfully develops a realistic story line and relationship between Lucas and Eva, that you are quickly engaged in this drama. It’s not love at first sight by any means but the slow awakening of an attraction and friendship.   It’s when they are no longer together that they realize how significant they have become to each other.  But is it too late for love? The Hallmark moment will leave you in smiles!


Miracle on 5th Avenue is a light, easy read that would be great to hole up with on a cold, snowy weekend.
