After the hard winter of 1888 ended Alby Boyle’s work as a Nebraska ranch hand, he returned to New York City in search of his long-lost family. His mother and brothers are nowhere to be found, however, and after Alby’s years of absence, Five Corners no longer feels like home. His prospects seem as dim as the nighttime alleys.

When Alby pauses to admire an angel ornament in a department store window’s Christmas display, he meets Xeno Varnham-Summerfield. Wealthy, handsome, and enthusiastic, Xeno brings Alby some temporary cheer. But for Alby to achieve his dreams of love and a real home, well, that may take a bit of holiday magic.

The Christmas Angel Series

In 1750, a master woodcarver poured all his unrequited love, passion, and longing into his masterpiece—a gorgeous Christmas angel for his beloved’s tree. When the man he loved tossed the angel away without a second thought, a miracle happened. The angel was found by another who brought the woodcarver True Love.

Since then, the angel has been passed down, sold, lost and found, but its magic remains. Read the romances inspired by (and perhaps nudged along by) the Christmas angel through the years. Whether it’s 1700s England (Eli Easton's Christmas Angel), the 1880’s New York (Kim Fielding’s Summerfield’s Angel), the turn-of-the-century (Jordan L. Hawk’s Magician’s Angel), World War II (L.A. Witt’s Christmas Homecoming), Vietnam-era (N.R. Walker’s Soldier’s Wish), the 1990’s (Anyta Sunday’s Shrewd Angel), or 2018 (RJ Scott’s Christmas Prince), the Christmas angel has a way of landing on the trees of lonely men who need its blessing for a very Merry Christmas and forever HEA.

4 Stars 

Xeno and Alby meet outside of a department store on Broadway, when Alby, who has returned to New York City from Nebraska to attempt to find and reconnect with his family who he hasn’t seen in 15 years, stops to look at the window display and the beautiful Angel that catches his eye. Xeno saves Alby when he walks out into traffic and is nearly run over and over the course of the next week, the two continue to meet in front of the store. Alby is attracted to Xeno, but what can a poor ranch hand have to offer a wealthy 5th Avenue gentleman?

This was a sweet story. Both Xeno and Alby were likable and as much as Alby tried to convince himself and Xeno that they couldn’t work, they were continually drawn together, especially with a bit of nudging from the magical Christmas Angel.

I loved that even in the late 1800’s, these two men found not only love, but acceptance from those most important to them. This was a well-written and enjoyable story that flowed well. I loved continuing to follow the Christmas Angel across the pond from London to New York and am looking forward to getting to the next book in the series. Very recommendable!
