Book Review / I'll Take New York by Miranda Dickinson **A Christmas Must Read**

The author of the Sunday Times bestselling Take a Look at Me Now, returns to New York with her most heart-warming, romantic story yet.

Have you ever given up on love?

When her boyfriend lets her down for the last time, Brooklyn bookshop owner Bea James makes a decision – no more. No more men, no more heartbreak, and no more pain.

Psychiatrist Jake Steinmann is making a new start too, leaving his broken marriage behind in San Francisco. From now on there'll just be one love in his life: New York.

At a party where they seem to be the only two singletons, Bea and Jake meet, and decide there’s just one thing for it. They will make a pact: no more relationships.

But the city has other plans . . .

 My Review
What I loved about this story...
EVERYTHING!!!   Words cannot truly describe how much I loved this book.  Miranda Dickinson is now firmly placed in my list of authors I love.  Although this book was 495 pages long, I read this in one sitting (albeit a few bathroom breaks in between and a very awkward lunch 'break' whilst reading!).  You have two main characters in this story - Bea James who has broken up with her boyfriend of five years and Jake Steinmann who has split from his wife of ten years and is having to move back to his home, New York, to forget about her.  Both characters meet at an engagement party held for some friends and make a pact that there will be no more relationships.  As the spend more time together as friends, maybe magic might happen in the end.  With a few twists and turns in both of their paths, I enjoyed following their story right until the very last page.  

If there is one book you read at Christmas, make it this one.  You won't forget it!
