    Charming Christmas story.

    Feels like Jill Barnett. I love her Christmas stories almost as much as I love her novels. This one doesn't disappoint. Conn is a rugged Irishman, a retired boxer, who runs a gym in a NYC bowery. Eleanor is a lonely spinster who must move into the top floor of the gym when her grandfather dies, she loses her apartment, and this is the only thing she has left. Conn is a big softy and Eleanor takes in all the neighborhood cats. A sweet love story that made me smile at the end.

    enjoyable read

    Interesting handle on the woman being 40 and the man 32. Well done. Jill Barnett does a good job on everything I have read by her.

    This wonderful romance is a love letter to New York City at the turn of the century. All the little details of public transport, the telephone and city living add to the sweet story of ex boxer meets spinster.




    While I do wish the backstory of the hero and the heroine had each been a little richer and the heroine's moment of panic more nuanced, this older woman younger man romance is made up of so many exquisite details of place and character that its sure to become a holiday reread. Falling in love at Christmastime in New York, what could be better?
