Fairy Tale in New York by Nicky Wells
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.

"Fairy Tale in New York is an uplifting, festive, feel good novella that restores faith in hope and humanity. The perfect Christmas read!" ~ Kelly, Perusing Princesses Blog.
Fairy Tale in New York is another compelling and beautifully executed christmastime read by Nicky Wells. We meet Jude and Carrie again in this standalone novella (Jude was first introduced in Spirits of Christmas, although you do not need to read that beforehand as both stories are standalone's).
The synopsis covers this story beautifully, so I won't add anything else in relation to the plot, but I will tell you how this book made me feel, and that was fulfilled. The characters that Jude and Carrie meet along the way is what made this story shine. When you are stranded in thick snow, a foreign country, with a child and no room at the inn, you have no choice but to put your trust in strangers. In today's climate, that is a very hard thing to do but desperate times make for desperate measures. Fairy Tale In New York is about taking that leap of faith and putting your trust in your fellow man in the hope that everything will be okay in the end, and what a beautifully fulfilling and feel-good journey it made.
If you are looking for soul-warming, uplifting, festive read this Christmastime, then you cannot go far wrong with this latest offering by the wonderfully gifted Nicky Wells.
