Blog Tour: A Very Manhattan Christmas by Darcie Boleyn

I am very excited today to be a part of the blog tour for A Very Manhattan Christmas by Darcie Boleyn. I recently returned from a trip to New York and so today I am going to be sharing what I would do with a Christmas in Manhattan. Please keep scrolling down to find out more information about this fabulous book and this wonderful author and don't forget to keep following the tour for more content, reviews and author spotlights!

I was lucky enough to be in Manhattan in the run up to Christmas 9 years ago now. It is so magical at Christmas time, just thinking about it now gets me so excited. It definitely gave me some things that I want to do, should I have the opportunity to go back again. 

In the run up to Christmas I would definitely take a day to do the Christmas windows properly. There are tours that you can take where you get to sit on a warm bus and look at the windows, but I would definitely sack that off in favour of getting all cosy in my jacket, grabbing a Starbucks red cup drink and walking along 5th avenue, Madison Avenue and Broadway to see the Christmas displays in my own time whilst enjoying a warming drink and perhaps a black and white cookie or two.

When I was in New York this time, the Ice rink at Rockefeller Plaza and the Walman skating rink in Central Park had just opened and this is something else that would definitely be on my list. The idea of skating under the shadow of 30 Rock and its magnificent Christmas tree with some friends or a significant other just fills me with joy and so this is something else I would do, perhaps even as a birthday treat!

On Christmas day itself I think it would be amazing to get all wrapped up and go for one of those Christmas day walks. Hopefully there would be light snow falling and people would be out in the city enjoying similar walks. Maybe a Starbucks drink would be involved again, but just being able to walk in the city with slightly less traffic and everyone in a slightly better mood would be amazing and would definitely help all the food I'd eaten go down just a littler easier!

I know this isn't strictly Christmas, but it is still the festive period, I would love to see in the New Year in Times Square. Just being there is like being in a different world where you don't know whether it's day or night and so I think it would be truly magical to end the festive season with a whole bunch of other people celebrating the new Year with a bang!

And now here's everything you need to know about A Very Manhattan Christmas by Darcie Boleyn:

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?

Author Information

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.
