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.

Nicky Wells is one of my favorite romance authors, so it’s no surprise that I love to read her stories. This is one that I absolutely could not put down. If you’re looking for a good read this holiday season, try Fairy Tale in New York. You’ll love it!



Wow! Just … my god… I’m a huge fan of Nicky Wells but this I think is my favorite. Just every line is so cute, so perfect, so freaking fairy tale ish. And I’m a horror lover and I had tears in my eyes or I was laughing out loud!

First of all, the characters are just marvelous. I love them. One of the reasons this is able to be a fairy tale is because of their attitudes. Yes, there were times when Carrie broke down crying but they were few and far between. Both she and Jude kept level heads during what could have been a major disaster. I don’t know if Nicky was trying to say anything but what she did say is always look at your glass as half full because you never, and I mean never know what is going to come out of a bad situation!

And this bad situation was funnily something that Jude put them into. I admit I would have wanted to do the same thing. A man’s wife is in labor and he can’t get back to her and here I am with a ticket to the place he wants to go? Yeah… I would give it up, no second thought. Jude has a family though! And it’s Christmas time. No one wants to be away from home on Christmas!

The things that happened to this little family in the two short days that they are in New York are fabulous. It’s really great seeing the love and graciousness that people really do have within them.

The writing was outrageous! Like I said above, I laughed, I cried, I begged for more.

My one and ONLY complaint is that it was too damn short!
