5 posts | 1 read | 9 to read
"Theres plenty to love in this sparkling Christmas rom-com."Publishers Weekly A magical holiday love story set at the glamorous Plaza Hotel in New York City. Its Christmas week when 26-year-old Sabrina Post knocks on the door of the Vanderbilt suite at the Plaza Hotel in New York City, ready to accept the ghostwriting position for the memoir of Grayson Westcotta famous art dealer. A struggling journalist, Sabrina can't believe her luck: a paycheck and six nights in her own suite at the Plaza. She feels like Eloise, the heroine from her favorite childrens books. To make the job even more exciting, Grayson recounts how he worked as a butler at the Plaza sixty years ago for none other than the author of the Eloise books, Kay Thompson. What promises to be a perfect week is complicated when Sabrina meets Ian Wentworth, a handsome British visitor, at the hotel bar. When Ian assumes Sabrina is another wealthy guest at the hotel, she doesnt correct him a decision she doesnt regret after learning that Ian is a member of the British aristocracy. But, things are not what they seem. The truth is: Ian is not a wealthy lord; hes actually the personal secretary of Lord Spencer Braxton. As the week unfolds, will Sabrina and Ian learn the truth about one another? Filled with the magic that can only be found at the Plaza Hotel during the holidays, and revealing facts about the author of the Eloise books, Anita Hughes's A Magical New York Christmas is both a holiday treat and a heartwarming story that reminds us that falling in love is the greatest miracle of all.

Much of this book is set at the NewYork Plaza Hotel, all dressed up for Christmas.Although I have only visited its lobby,this plush setting did lend its magic to the read. Other streets & neighborhoods are familiar to me, especially when Sabrina shops at an outdoor Christmas bazaar,the last thing my family did in the City in 2019. So this book worked its magic on me- I visited NYC vicariously for Christmas in 2021. Romance,the spirit of giving.

This Christmas romance is set in NYC. Sabrina,a soon to be penniless free lance journalist, has taken a job to ghost write a wealthy elderly man‘s memoirs. It is Christmas week and the Plaza where her boss is staying & has booked a suite for Sabrina too, is dressed up for Christmas, which adds to its otherworldly magic. Sabrina is #enchanted.

Chose this book to begin my 2021 Christmas reading. Usually we take the train to NYC before Christmas, but Covid has gotten in the way- our last visit was 12/21/2019. So I will be visiting the City vicariously while I read. 🚉🏙💖

Am I reading a Christmas book in October? Yes. Is it the most delightful thing I have read in a while with multiple book references in the first chapter? Also yes. I must say one chapter in and I‘m in love.
