Spotlight – A Very Merry Manhattan Christmas by Darcie Boleyn


It’s that time of year again where I search for all the fab Christmas reads to read throughout December in the lead up to Christmas.

When I was asked to be on the blog tour for this Christmas adult fiction contemporary romance I instantly fell in love with it’s gorgeous cover and have added it to my Christmas TBR.

A Very Merry Manhattan Christmas was released on the 7th November 2016 published in e book by Canelo and is set to put anyone in the Christmas spirit.

So today for my stop on the tour I thought I would spotlight this book and it’s wonderful author….

*does a snow angel*


Lucie Quigley hates Christmas. It’s the time of year when everything goes wrong in her life. So this year, when she’s asked to be a bridesmaid at her friend Petra’s Manhattan wedding, she jumps at the invitation to escape the festivities.

Dale Treharne has been best friends with Lucie for as long as he can remember. He’s used to looking out for his oldest friend and when she asks him to be her plus one, he can’t seem to find a reason to refuse. Instead, he sees it as a way to help Lucie get through what is, for her, the most miserable time of the year.

In New York, as the snow starts to fall, Lucie and Dale start to realise that their feelings run deeper than just friendship. But can they overcome their pasts, and make it a very merry Manhattan Christmas?

About Darcie Boleyn


Darcie Boleyn has a huge heart and is a real softy. She never fails to cry at books and movies, whether the ending is happy or not. Darcie is in possession of an overactive imagination that often keeps her awake at night. Her childhood dream was to become a Jedi but she hasn’t yet found suitable transport to take her to a galaxy far, far away. She also has reservations about how she’d look in a gold bikini, as she rather enjoys red wine, cheese and loves anything with ginger or cherries in it – especially chocolate. Darcie fell in love in New York, got married in the snow, rescues uncoordinated greyhounds and can usually be found reading or typing away on her laptop.

You can find out more about Darcie on her website –
