There’s nothing so magical as Christmas in New York…
Santa is coming to New York!
Snow is falling, excitement is high and the delicious scent of chocolate drifts along Fifth Avenue – the Candied Apple Café is ready for Christmas! And no one is busier than publicist Iona Summerlin. With so much to do, she doesn’t have time to think about men, dating, or the fact her last boyfriend ditched her for her brother… Relationships are off the menu!
Hotel boss Mads Eriksson is not looking forward to the first Christmas since losing his wife. His six-year-old daughter Sofia has lost her belief in Christmas magic along with her mother, and he has no idea what to do. But an unusually festive business meeting at the Candied Apple – and meeting the beautiful Iona – starts to defrost Mads’ frozen heart, and suddenly life seems full of light and sparkle again.If only they dare to believe, maybe all their Christmas dreams will come true!
Iona is in a cheerful mood despite the stress of running advertising for her cafe and her ex leaving her for her brother. She wears her heart on her sleeve and she's highly intelligent and sees a great promo when she sees it. When Mads shows up at Iona's shop wanting to discuss a business proposition she's not sure she can stay away. Mads' is determined never to love again so he'll never be crushed again. He was a sexy, sweet leading man but he drove me nuts at times.
Christmas at the Candied Apple Cafe is a solid story with a well written romance. though I felt the story slow at times. I did enjoy thoroughly the Christmas joy and events throughout the story along with Mads' daughter Sofia.
