The heartwarming new holiday read from the bestselling author of A Mistletoe Miracle
Sometimes the one thing you’re looking for is right in front of you…
Stephen is on a very personal mission to find his father as per the wishes in their mother’s will. But he has no idea where to start, not that he’s going to tell anyone that… When Noelle, native New Yorker, daughter of a detective and desperate for a distraction from the novel she’s been struggling to write, offers to help, it feels like the perfect solution.
Except the last time she spoke to Stephen he thought they’d be seeing the New Year in together and instead she stood him up and sold him out! Stephen’s big enough and been around the block enough times to understand that all is fair in love and war, isn’t he? But when Stephen accepts her offer and they begin their search across the city, it soon becomes clear that the weather isn’t the only thing that’s heating up.
A heartwarming summer romance
I received a copy of this book from Orion Books – Orion Dash via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
This story gets you into the New York vibe from the beginning. Noelle, a cosy crime writer, is struggling with her latest book and could do without family interference, even though she loves them. The descriptions of New York and the family dynamic draw you into the story quickly.
Stephen is fulfilling his mother’s last wish and searching for his estranged father without success.
The chemistry between the two unlikely lovers is a slow build. This is a vibrant story full of laughter, poignancy and romance. The well-described New York setting adds an extra level of interest to this Summer novel.
