Giving a present is not always easy. Clover O’Brian knows that only too well: her job consists of helping people in the arduous task of choosing unusual gifts. Christmas is coming, New York is buzzing, and Clover, who has always loved the festive period, savours the atmosphere.
Cade Harrison already has everything in life. A Hollywood actor, he is handsome, rich, famous and popular. Success, however, has its downsides; having just emerged from a disastrous relationship with an actress, he feels a need to hide away in an area unfrequented by stars, in an apartment lent him by a friend, far from prying eyes – especially those of tabloid reporters. But as chance will have it, the apartment in question is right opposite the one occupied by Clover, who until now has seen Hollywood actors only on the big screen. Two quite different lives meet by chance, at the most exhilarating time of year…
I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
Set during the holiday period in New York City this heart-warming tale of love and the Christmas spirit is sure to enchant readers. The characters themselves were lovable and their differences made an interesting reading experience. Clover is a Christmas-a-holic and works as a professional shopper specialising in gifts. This lent itself well to the Christmas season. As the book wound its story the reader was able to delve into the characters, making them fully developed in the mind. The backgrounds of Cade and Clover and family dynamics allowed for a closer relationship between the two characters while giving the reader a greater understanding of their motivations. A romance that warms the heart. This is a book for all those readers out there that love love and especially love Christmas.
Keep Calm and Read On,
