Title: New Year at the Ritz
Author: Nikki Moore
Pages: 40 pages
The second short story in the fun & flirty #LoveLondon series from exciting new chick lit author Nikki Moore!
New Year, New Love… or Old Love, New Start?
Everyone keeps telling Frankie Taylor that a new year is a time for new beginnings. She’s not so sure. Single for a year, she’s been more than happy on her own, thanks very much!
At least, that’s what she thinks until she receives a note on New Year’s Eve inviting her to follow the clues, and her heart, across Knightsbridge.
But who’s behind the romantic adventure? Old flame Christian who she loved for years and was always there for her, or new admirer and work colleague Zack, who has the habit of turning up in all sorts of unexpected places?
There’s only one way she’s going to find out…
I loved the first story in the #LoveLondon series – Skating at Somerset House – yet for some silly reason it has taken me a long time to read the second instalment – New Year at the Ritz. Now I have read it I feel pretty darn foolish that I didn’t pick it up earlier. Silly Bentley.
The story follows Frankie Taylor, a single girl who is still grieving over the death of her mother and is just trying to survive her busy (and expensive) London life. Working in a department store and coming home to a dingy flat occupy her days. However, on New Year’s Eve she follows a series of romantic clues which lead her to London’s fanciest hotel – The Ritz.
I don’t know how Nikki Moore does it but she manages to inject glamour, mystery, romance, heartache and a plethora of other emotional things into her short stories which make them a delight to read. Whilst I loved Skating at Somerset House, I have to say I bloody loved New Year’s at the Ritz. It was such a page turner!
Well done Nikki Moore. I cannot wait to read the next instalment of the #LoveLondon series – Valentines on Primrose Hill.
