Review: Fairy Tale in New York – 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 now available in Kindle and paperback editions from all Amazon domains, including: |

This book is the perfect Christmas novella for me! I loved everything about it, especially the message that carried throughout this whole novella – acts of kindness from random people do still exist.

Fairy Tale in New York follows the same characters as Spirits of Christmas. This time, however, Jude, Carrie and their little daughter Maya find themselves in New York over Christmas and get to experience the most beautiful, tear-jerking and romantic moments with each other. Although Jude and Carrie were the main heroes in Nicky’s previous novella, Fairy Tale in New York can easily be read as a standalone.

Fairy Tale is New York is a perfect read for when you need a little pick-me-up moment. I had a huge smile plastered on my face when I reached the last page. Yes, admittedly there are a few stereotypical moments in this book, but this is exactly what I need and expect from a Christmas novel/novella.
