My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“How do you celebrate Christmas with no place to stay, no food and no presents?”

We meet Carrie Collins and Jude Shaw who first appeared in last year’s Christmas book “Spirits of Christmas” this book continues with their story but is just as good as a stand a lone read. It’s just before Christmas and Jude and Carrie are at JFK airport checking in for a flight home after the band Jude plays in has just been on tour. 17 gigs in 21 days. My Whyte is at the front of the queue a desperate man, his wife has gone into early labour and he is desperate to get on a flight to London to be with her, but all flights are full in the holiday rush.

Jude looks down at his own baby daughter Maya and remembers how if felt to be rushing to the hospital to be there for the birth and he offers to give up his seat on the plane. The airline arrange for Jude and his family to fly home the next day and Mr Whyte offers them his hotel suite for the night in exchange. This looks like the easiest option until a snowstorm comes and New York is shut down leaving Jude and his family stranded with no where to go on Christmas eve.

Read the tale of kindness and Christmas cheer which will leave you all warm and fuzzy.

Fairy Tale in New York


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.

    • Thanks for sharing, Judith! I hope you enjoy my little fairy tale if you get a chance to grab a copy. Meanwhile, all the best for a wonderful Christmas season to you. XX


  1. Hi Rosie, thank you so much for hosting Fairy Tale here today–and for your lovely review. It makes my day to hear that you enjoyed the story so much. 😀

    Thank you also for all your support through the year, it makes such a difference. Here’s wishing you a great Christmas and a wonderful and successful 2015. Do stay in touch, and shout if I can ever do anything for you.

    Rock on!


    • Hi! Well, I’m biased, of course, but I think it is. I wanted all-out festive fun and feel good factor! Hope you enjoy if you pick up a copy. Let me know what you think! X


      • I would never pick up a book, especially these days, without leavng a review. The problem is keeping up with the reading of so many fantastic books. I want to devour ALL of the books I come across. <33 ❤ ❤


  2. Sounds like a really good one. Is there any link with the famous, marvellous, song by the Pogues and Kirsty McColl? Linking it in tweets wd give you more publicity


    • Well spotted! There is indeed. It’s one of Carries (main character’s) favourite songs and it is instrumental (pun intended) in moving the plot forward at an early critical juncture. There are more song linkages in the books as the chapter titles were all inspired by classic Christmas rock tunes… wonder if you can work out my playlist from there, LOL!

      Do you think linking it in tweets would enhance the publicity? I’ll certainly give it a go! Great suggestion, thank you! 🙂


      • Yes, I’m sure it would at Christmas time, esp as that song always gets airplay on radio and TV. BTW Nicky I bought it, looking forward to reading it sounds excellent. I’ll watch out for your tweets and RT. Well done for having such a good idea.


      • Thank you so much!! I really hope you enjoy and would love to hear what you think. I am tweeting like mad… well, as much as I think is reasonable without annoying folks. LOL! However… I’ve been advised not to go crazy on making an explicit link with The Pogues as some might take a dim view of that. It’s a minefield out there. So I’m letting the title speak for itself, for now. No need to risk a lawsuit just yet! 🙂 XX


    • Thank you so much for your comment. I hope you’ll get a chance to try it and see what you think–I’d love to hear your thoughts. Meanwhile, enjoy the festive season and have fabulous Christmas. 🙂 XX


  3. Bit late posting here as my internet connection went into meltdown yesterday thanks to Cyber Monday 😦 Anyhoo, many congrats to Nicky on completing another of her great novels. This one sounds like a winner, too and will be winging its way to my creaking kindle.
