*I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

I have a predilection for romances where the hero and the heroine are neighbors so when I read the synopsis for this book I couldn't resist requesting it on NetGalley.

Carrie McKenzie is an English woman living and working in New York, for a year. She's still feeling the effects of the annus horribilis and not even the fact of being in another continent seems to get her out of the autopilot her life has become...

English Girl in New York: When New York is hit with an early blizzard it brings together two neighbors, and one abandoned baby. This book touched on so many emotions. It had me laughing out loud as many times as it had me crying buckets of tears.

Carrie McKenzie is in New York working and trying to forget her past. The one thing she can’t handle is finding an abandoned baby on the doorstep of her apartment building. Panicked, she knocks on her neighbor’s door for help.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

One of my guiltiest pleasures has always been reading Harlequin Romances. With a Harlequin Romance I know I am going to get a sweet story with a very happy ending. But when that story is also well-written and includes characters that I really grow to care about – Bonus! And that’s exactly how I felt about An English Girl in New York by Scarlet Wilson.

Carrie McKenzie has had a bad year.

No, really. Hers truly was bad, in a very sad, heartbreaking way.

So when her boss offers her the opportunity to spend a year in New York, she takes it. Perhaps what she needs is a change of scenery?

She lives in a cute brownstone and is surrounded, for the most part, by elderly dwellers. Except for that one good looking dude who doesn't give her the time of day.

Thanks to a freak October snowstorm and a baby abandoned on the doorstep, though, Carrie meets this ma

A charming tender story. There is some action but most of the story is about the characters and how they relate to each other. Some tender moments. Some full of humor while some are sad. Clean read.

I like the characters. It would be scary to be stuck inside and not be able to get help for days. Glad when you see people helping each other to get through the tough times.

Did have to look up a few words like annus horribilis. It means a horrible year. The others were English words not America

I am surprised I actually really liked this book. Lately I haven't been enjoying these Harlequin novels but this one was very good. Sure it was predictable but I did enjoy it and I did it all in one evening.

If you are looking for a easy romantic read I recommend this book.

Sad situation brings them together but what better way to get to know your neighbour than babysitting in a snow storm.
