Review: Kiss Me in New York by Catherine Rider

Book Blurb

Does it really take ten steps to mend a broken heart?

Charlotte is a British student, waiting for a flight home after the worst semester of her life. Anthony is a native New Yorker, surprising his girlfriend at the airport after three months apart. Charlotte has just been dumped, and Anthony is about to be dumped, right in the middle of the holiday crowd.

Charlotte’s flight is canceled when a blizzard blows in, and Anthony can’t bear to go home. So, they set out into the city together, clutching a book Charlotte picks up in the airport gift shop: Ten Easy Steps for Getting Over Your Ex. For this one night, they’ll focus on healing their broken hearts ... together.

Step-by-step, the two struggle to put the past behind them. But soon the city and the snow work some magic. Will their shared misery give way to something else before Charlotte leaves New York forever?

For anyone who believes a chance encounter can lead to true love, and anyone who sees the romance in a snowy night.

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

Charlotte is waiting to go home to England for Christmas.  She just broke up with her boyfriend and is really questioning whether to come back to New York at all.  Then her flight gets canceled because of weather.  She has nowhere to go except a lonely hotel room for Christmas Eve.  While waiting in the airport she watches another break up in real time.  She feels his pain. 
Anthony came to surprise his girlfriend when she flew home.  Unfortunately, someone else was also there to meet her.  She chose the other guy.  So, Charlotte and Anthony team up and spend the spare hours she has before she leaves going through the steps of how to get over a break up.  They roam New York trying to complete the steps.

It was an interesting story, A fairytale.  No one would likely do this in real life, but the idea is sweet.  Charlotte is an awesome character.  She is heart broken but doesn’t let people play her for a fool.  Her journey through the story is awesome as she gains confidence in herself.  I also like how she makes a positive impact to those she meets, especially Anthony and his family.  How she handles the situation is miraculous for someone of her age.  The author made the situations believable and the characters real.  It was a fast read full of fun and head shaking moments.  I like the combination of the characters and the storyline idea.  I give it a 5 out of 5.
