Rating: 2 Cups
There is nothing more festive than New York at Christmas. Sam Bennett is enjoying every minute of his time there, while he works a seasonal gig setting up Christmas displays around the city. Any kind of work will help his family’s Colorado ranching operation squeak through another hard winter. When he is offered a side job helping set up a window display, he jumps at the chance.
Nicole Young dreams of being a window dresser for one of the large chain stores in New York. The cutthroat business of window art means long hours in cramped spaces, but Nicole is willing to do whatever it takes. When a cowboy tips the brim of his Stetson to her, she is intrigued. Even if she does not desperately need the help, it will be impossible to resist his offer.
A native New Yorker, Nicole has never met anyone like Sam. He is hardworking, honest and more of a man than anyone she can imagine. As she rediscovers New York Christmas holiday joy with Sam, Nicole begins to wonder if there is any chance for more. In the end, there is only one thing she wants under the tree on Christmas morning.
Ms. Dailey paints a thorough and captivating picture of New York during the holidays, and the fascinating world of window dressing in the big city. While the characters are complex and engaging, the story moves slowly. Readers may find themselves in a hurry to rip open the paper and get to the good stuff.
