After a couple of really hard reads, A Miracle at Macy’s was just what I needed. A sugary sweet read absolutely perfect for reading at Christmas. The author has a light and amusing way of writing. The Indian Taxi driver-cum-Comedian Vijay was one of my favourite characters really funny!
A Miracle at Macy’s tells the story of Charlotte, a young woman living in New York with a dog she rescued from the streets. While off having a selfie with Santa’s elves her little dog goes missing and Charlotte is left alone in New York desperate to find the dog who she considers to be her only family, other than a distant Aunt who is too busy organising PR events to have time for Charlotte.
Charlotte’s mission to find her pup leads into a City wide hunt as her aunt pulls all the strings she can along with her sexy but uptight assistant. The police jump on board and the pup becomes an online sensation.
The story is a romance with a twist. What I liked was how you sort of thought it was going to be somebody else that Charlotte fell in love with to begin with but then found yourself surprised when it was the polar opposite!
I loved the character development of Charlotte and how she grew as a person not only finding love but finding herself as well. Hudson’s escapades shed light on a dire situation that any dog owner or lover can identify with. There wasn’t a character in the book who I didn’t like in their own way. I fully agree with Charlotte that Hudson had a master plan to bring her out of herself.
I would definitely read other books by this author. A light, fluffy, funny read with enough humour to stop the premise being sad. A true Rom Com with a few great twists well done!
