Feliz Nueva York
by Helen Pilz
Spend Christmas Eve alone or with the man she's had a crush on for months? The choice is tougher than she thinks. Recently relocated from New Mexico to New York City, Rose Moreno has been too busy (and too shy) to reveal her attraction to fellow office worker, Brian Garner. Brian invites Rose to share a taxicab after work on a snowy Christmas Eve. Icy streets and a taxi fender-bender strand Rose and Brian at his apartment. How can a reserved, small town girl ever hope to win the heart of a sophisticated, big city man? She's going to need a Christmas miracle.
This is a sweet little love story. Author Helen Pilz has done a lovely job of developing her characters and background. Their actions show their emotions so well and the plot is quite plausible.
Best of all, after a very satisfying ending, she gives the reader a related recipe for some yummy sounding New Mexican cookies.
This quick read would be a wonderful filler to devour when you don't have time or energy for a longer tale. And afterward you can make the cookies for someone you love. :-)
