They didn’t believe in holiday magic… until it happens to them.
Anna McKinnon is a free spirit. As a bartender in New York City, she answers to no one, keeps what she calls “vampire hours” – and likes it that way. She secretly wishes to find real love, the forever kind her brothers have all found. But love has not only eluded her, it’s burned her badly. Keeping things light is how Anna copes.
David Beren is a high-powered, intense investment banker in the heart of Manhattan. His 80-hour work weeks took over his life long ago, but now, at 35, he’s ready for something more. But what? And then he meets Anna. She’s unexpected – full of light, color, and laughter. Anna knocks him off his game and his feet, and he’s never been happier.
Can total opposites – a feisty, bold girl from Ireland and a quiet, straight-laced Jewish guy from New Jersey – find love at the holidays? With the double whammy of a Hanukkah miracle and some Christmas magic, they just might.
Holidays in Manhattan is book five in the McKinnon Brothers series by Jennifer Gracen. This is Anna McKinnon and David Bergen’s story.
A sweet romance between two totally different people. Anna wants to find true love but has a hard time trusting due to past experiences. David and Anna’s first meeting was hilarious. Even though they are totally opposites they are attracted to each other and seemed drawn to each other. I really loved David’s character and how he treated Anna so well. Will the differences keep them from finding true love? The story was fun and entertaining but would have loved an epilogue.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
Holidays in Manhattan
A wonderful romance story
Oh how I love this couple! Talk about ying and yang... these two are from different worlds but they do make it work for them. And it’s in the little things of day-to-day life that build up into something more. David eventually saw the world through Anna’s eyes and vice versa. Such a sweet story that truly satisfies.
I received an advanced reader copy from the publisher in exchange for my volunteer review.
