Review: Fairy Tale in New York by Nicky Wells


Title: Fairy Tale in New York

Author: Nicky Wells

Publication Date: November 10, 2014



New York. A restaurant near Park Avenue. It’s early evening, and dusk is falling. So is the snow. Jude and Carrie are only killing time while they wait for their flight to London. They don’t know yet that their life will never be the same.

When rock star Jude gets stranded in New York with his family on Christmas Eve, he has no idea that he is setting in motion a chain of events that will turn their Christmas into the most magical one yet…

No good deed goes unpunished, or so it seems to Jude and Carrie on the morning of the twenty-fourth of December. The previous day, they gave up their London-bound flights to someone in crisis. And now, a spectacular whiteout is grounding all planes, and Jude, Carrie, and baby Maya are stuck far from home.

Tired, hungry, and just a little panicked, Jude loads his family into a cab and returns to their hotel. But there’s no room at the inn, and not even a platinum credit card will make a difference. Snow is falling heavily, and the family is facing a very bleak night indeed.

How do you celebrate Christmas with no place to stay, no food, and no presents? Join Jude, Carrie, Maya and a cast of colourful characters in this fairy tale story of Yuletide in New York.

Rachel’s 4.5 Star Review

Oh, this book was wonderfully uplifting, just how a Christmas novella should be! It was so hard to put down and deal with ‘real life’ while this sweet fairy tale romance was keeping me captivated.

This is the stand-alone sequel to the awesome Spirits of Christmas that released last year. Where last year’s was a rock ‘n’ roll take on the Christmas Carol, this book carries on with the Christmas theme with a very British take on ‘no room at the inn’ but set in New York and I LOVED it!

Jake Shaw is an up and coming rock star in the band The Blood Roses. He has a fantastic, supportive girlfriend, Carrie Collins and the cutest daughter ever, little baby Maya. The couple are so very much in love and having their daughter has completed them. When they find themselves stranded in New York and faced figuratively with road block after road block they do the very British thing and make the most of it. We meet some kind hearted citizens and come across some wonderful acts of kindness that really will make you smile. We are treated to such a sweet, uplifting few days in New York that will make you want to do someone a good turn and it will definitely put you in the mood for some good will and Christmas cheer!

If you fancy a quick Christmas read then you can’t go wrong with this one!
