She'll risk everything for her own Christmas miracle...
Determined to conquer a lifetime of shyness, Harriet Knight challenges herself to do one thing a day in December that scares her, including celebrating Christmas without her family. But when dog-walker Harriet meets her newest client, exuberant spaniel Madi, she adds an extra challenge to her list - dealing with Madi's temporary dog-sitter, gruff doctor Ethan Black, and their very unexpected chemistry. Ethan thought he was used to chaos, until he met Madi - how can one tiny dog cause such mayhem? To Ethan, the solution is simple - he will pay Harriet to share his New York apartment and provide 24-hour care. But there's nothing simple about how Harriet makes him feel. Ethan's kisses make Harriet shine brighter than the stars over moonlit Manhattan. But when his dog-sitting duties are over, and Harriet returns to her own home, will she dare to take the biggest challenge of all - letting Ethan know he has her heart for life, not just for Christmas?

I give it - 5/5
My review - Oh another wonderful book from Sarah Morgan. This is part of a little series, From Manhattan With Love, as this one is following Harriet who is the twin sister of Fliss from Holiday In The Hamptons and their brother Daniel from New York, Actually. I've only read New York, Actually and I'm so sad I haven't picked up Holiday In The Hamptons yet! I adore Sarah's books and this one is definitely one of my favourites and possibly my favourite series since there is a theme of dogs.
Harriet is a dog walker. She has recently started living by herself and is feeling a little lonely. After growing up with two protective siblings, and when she was younger she use to get bullied for her stutter, something she has under control now but has knocked her self-esteem. Then we meet Ethan. They meet one night in the hospital where Ethan works after Harriet has a terrible first date and jumping out the window and hurts her ankle. There is an instant attraction but, they don't think they are going to see each other again.
Until Ethan has to mind his sisters dog Madi. He knows nothing about dogs and only knows that Madi has a dog walker who comes twice a day and it turns out to be Harriet. After a few incidents and a few arguments. Ethan finds himself inviting Harriet to stay with him to help take care of Madi before his sisters come back. With an instant attraction, can they keep their hands of each other or, will they give into the temptation and let each other know how much they both care about each other?
I just adored it. I love the writing and the family relationship in this book. The book is full of love and drama. It is just so wonderful. It made me feel so cosy as I read it with a hot chocolate and it has gotten me so excited for Christmas. I just adore a Christmas love story and I can't recommend this enough.
