Goodreads: 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?
Kritters Thoughts: Another in this magical series set in NYC. This one is set in my favorite time of year to be in NYC - the holidays! Eva has been present in the previous books in this series, but in Miracle on 5th Avenue she takes a starring role. She is the foodie of the bunch and ends up stuck at a reclusive author's home in the middle of a snowstorm and in true romance book fashion they may find love!
I absolutely love this series. It is moving up to be my favorite romance series. I love the characters. I love the business they have created (kind of wish I could work for them!) and I love how unique they are from each other, but you can still see how genuine the friendship is. I am an overall fan of this series and can't wait for each book to come out. I hope there are many to come.
Now specifically this book. I loved Lucas Blade - he was such a great male lead. He added such great ups and downs to the book to make it a great story, but nothing too over the top. He may be my favorite male lead in this series!
I was excited to see on her website that there are already three more books lined up in this series. I will be counting down the days until they arrive.
Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
