Blog Tour: Review: Fairy Tale in New York

Nicky’s Rock and Roll Xmas Promo Party!!!

20th December 2014! Facebook party!

Fairy Tale in New York by Nicky Wells

New York. A restaurant near Park Avenue. It’s early evening, and dusk is falling. So is the snow. Jude and Carrie are only killing time while they wait for their flight to London. They don’t know yet that their life will never be the same.

When rock star Jude gets stranded in New York with his family on Christmas Eve, he has no idea that he is setting in motion a chain of events that will turn their Christmas into the most magical one yet…

No good deed goes unpunished, or so it seems to Jude and Carrie on the morning of the twenty-fourth of December. The previous day, they gave up their London-bound flights to someone in crisis. And now, a spectacular whiteout is grounding all planes, and Jude, Carrie, and baby Maya are stuck far from home.

Tired, hungry, and just a little panicked, Jude loads his family into a cab and returns to their hotel. But there’s no room at the inn, and not even a platinum credit card will make a difference. Snow is falling heavily, and the family is facing a very bleak night indeed.

How do you celebrate Christmas with no place to stay, no food, and no presents? Join Jude, Carrie, Maya and a cast of colourful characters in this fairy tale story of Yuletide in New York.

Fairy Tale in New York is now available in Kindle and paperback editions from all Amazon domains, including: |

My Thoughts:
Okay, I really really like this novella. I'm pretty much a fan of anything Christmas-y, so this was perfect. I loved the Christmas spirit and the Christmas cheer. I also love the setting. It's set in New York City during the holidays. One day, I want to do that. I think it's nice to have Jude and his family be British people in America. I suppose it's an extremely common scenario, so this is really realistic. I also like the note in the beginning saying the characters will be british no matter what. And they are. I like how they keep their personalities. Can I be more like Jude? I honestly do not know if I would give up my much-needed plane ticket. I suppose the reason was awesome, but still. Jude is just a good guy and he and his family all make pretty good decisions. I like the karma/good deeds going on. Jude does something good and gets something good in return. He also gets to learn more about Christmas and having fun rather than receive gifts.‏

I think this is a really cute short story and it is perfect for Christmas. You definitely need to read this before your holidays.

Rating: 4.5 stars

Spirits Of Christmas by Nicky Wells

Spirits of Christmas: A Rock’n’Roll Christmas Carol

At one time, up-and-coming rock singer Jude had it all: a great band, a platinum record, a loving girlfriend. This Christmas, however, he is well down the road towards spontaneous self-destruction.

Unwitting at first, Jude has progressively alienated his band and driven away the love of his life. Tonight, the night before Christmas Eve, he has broken the final taboo during a disastrous gig. Yet Jude doesn’t see how badly his life has derailed, not until a ghostly procession of legends passes through his bedroom with a series of vivid and powerful wake-up calls.

Will the Spirits help Jude put the friendship, love, and rock music back into his Christmas?

Spirits of Christmas is a modern-day rock’n’roll adaption of Charles Dickens’ classic A Christmas Carol. This novella will enchant romance readers, rock lovers, fans of ghost stories, and everybody who adores the festive season.
