A Very Merry Manhattan Christmas by Darcie Boleyn

Has the perfect man been there all along?

Lucie Quigley hates Christmas. So when she’s asked to be a bridesmaid at her friend Petra‘s Manhattan wedding, she jumps at the chance to escape the festivities at home. Her best friend Dale Treharne jumps at the chance to be her plus-one, seeing it as a way to help Lucie get through the most miserable time of the year.

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

It was a real page-turner.’ Lozza’s Book Corner


About Darcie Boleyn (A pseudonym used by Rachel Griffiths)

Darcie Boleyn has a huge heart and is a real softy. She never fails to cry in books and movies, whether the ending is happy. 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, and cheese and loves anything with ginger or cherries in it – especially chocolate. Darcie fell in love in New York, got married in the snow, rescued uncoordinated greyhounds and can usually be found reading or typing away on her laptop.
