I really enjoyed this, despite the few issues I had with the heroine, and the numerous typos. But what's a Christmas story without a little magic. ;) . Loved Rosa and all of the supporting characters, even the "bad" guys were entertaining. It was a classic Christmas love story, albeit one with time travel.

FINAL DECISION: This was an enjoyable story that felt "old fashioned" in a good way - perhaps classic is a good word. The time jump to the 1940s and getting a mix of modern and history was a fun read. The story made me happy and is a definite feel good holiday story.

THE STORY: Madison Simcoe finds herself living an unfulfilling life and she's had enough of the harassment she has had to deal with at work. She decides to visit Macy's during the Christmas season and finds herself in transported

Madison is disenchanted with her job and the sexual harassment she faces on a daily basis. The holiday lights and gaiety add to her loneliness and she decides to drown her sorrows in the ritz and glamour of Macy’s.

The moment she enters through the revolving glass doors, she realizes something has changed; people are dressed in clothing from another era, but she assumes she’s stumbled into an expensive ad campaign.

Boy, was she wrong.

This is an excellent book with an unusual setting in the time-travel genre. I loved the romance and heat between the hero and heroine, and the glimpse into the 1947 retail trade! I remember New York City in the 1950s so some of the things the author described seemed quite familiar. I found the book to be compelling reading. this is a great example of a holiday romance!
I saw Sylvester Stallone in Macy’s Herald Square 30 years ago, but I tend to shop online nowadays.

It's been awhile since I've read a brand new Anne Stuart. I always enjoy her writing style and her heroes. This story felt more like her early stuff as opposed to the men who kill and women who love them novels. I enjoyed the story and felt that it was a nice touch for Christmas. I don't generally like super fluffy Christmas stories so this one had the right amount of angst.
