Review: "Fairy Tale in New York" by Nicky Wells

Rock star Jude, girlfriend Carrie, and new baby Maya are excited to spend their first ever Christmas together. Waiting in an airport in New York for their flight home, they witness an agitated man desperately trying to get home in time to witness the birth of his weeks-early baby but there is no room left on the flight. Jude graciously gives up his seat on the flight because he knows that if it were him in that position he would hope for the same, and Carrie decides that she is going to stay with him no matter what. Although their first additional night in New York is spent in the luxury of a five-star hotel, a freak snowstorm grounds them indefinitely and suddenly they find that there is no room at the inn.

With no place to stay on Christmas Eve, things are looking grim for Jude and for Carrie but they quickly discover that, thanks to the kindness of strangers, this Christmas might be their best yet.

I thoroughly enjoyed this heartwarming Christmas tale from author Nicky Wells! I could vividly picture Jude and Carrie and baby Maya in New York, away from their families but trying to keep a brave face on. Despite the harshness of the weather depicted the story was cozy and welcoming, and I wished at times that I could jump right in to the story! I loved that the underlying theme was remaining positive even in those times when things just don't go your way.

Reading Fairy Tale in New York certainly put me in the festive spirit! I enjoyed reading this novella as well as the one that comes before it (Spirits of Christmas), and I thank the author for providing me a copy of this novella in exchange for my honest review.
