I’m back! It’s a Christmas miracle! Slight exaggeration but it was cold during my tour. How did I manage? You’ll have to stay tuned for my full tour post to find out. Right now I want to tell you about the latest book I read, A New York Christmas by Anne Perry.
This book tells the tale about a young woman, named Jemima who accompanies her friend Delphinia all the way from London to New York City. The year is 1904, so they obviously needed a boat. Delphinia, who comes from a wealthy family, is naturally, set to marry a very wealthy man. Two wealthy families joining will be a grand affair in New York City.
Delphinia’s mother, Maria, left her as a child and Jemima is aware of this but doesn’t know the full story. Some speak very ill of Maria, others more understanding, but most don’t speak of her at all. The groom’s brother suspects that Maria could show up at the wedding and cause a huge scandal. He wants to stop this from happening and enlists Jemima’s help. The ever-caring friend, Jemima gets swept up in the search for Maria. Jemima gets in deep and things go a little cray cray. What did she get herself into?
First of all, keep in mind that this book is short, so everything happens very fast. The story and characters seem like they could have been more developed, but you have to take the book for what it is meant to be, which is a light, fun, & easy read. The first turn of events caught me a little off guard, but that made me more invested in the book.
If you know me, you know I need a little bit of a love story in my books and thankfully this book delivered on that aspect.
If you need a quick, easy, and enjoyable book, then this book is for you!
Ya know what else is cool? It’s set during Christmas-time in New York City, so you know what that means…here’s my sneak peek into my not-so-solo-this-time tour in the city!
Just a little tease I know! Hopefully, the full tour post will be on time for Christmas! Someone call Santa for me because I need his help! If he can deliver all those toys in one night, then surely I can deliver my next blog post before Christmas? How many nights do I have? 🤔
I will do it! Thank you all for continuing to read. I appreciate you more than you know! I hope you are enjoying the holiday season. Whatever you celebrate, Happy Holidays to you and your family! ❤️
