Magic at Macy’s was a quick and enjoyable read and a fun start in kicking off the holiday season!
Yale University freshman Ally Brown is spending her first Thanksgiving away from home. Feeling alone and restless in a deserted dormitory, she sets off on an adventure to tour the amazing holiday window displays along New York City’s Fifth Avenue.
But her plans get sidetracked as she switches from tourist to stalker after spotting her crush, Jack Prescott, who is taking the same train into the city. He’s the handsome Editor in Chief of the Yale Daily News and the man of her dreams—if only she could work up the courage to speak to him.
Certain that it would take a miracle for Jack to notice her, Ally experiences her own “Miracle on 34th Street” when things take an surprisingly romantic turn, thanks to a little Magic at Macy’s.
I love the romantic idea of finding your love in New York at Christmas time!
Ally and Jack were very likable and charming characters in this story. Ally was seemingly shy and insecure, Jack was more the strong and confident type, and they unknowingly shared a mutual attraction to each other. The first part of the novella was told in Ally’s point of view leading up to them being together, and the second part was in Jack’s point of view five years later.
The story was well written and engaging, and I was certainly curious to know where Ally’s journey through the city after Jack would end up. Their meeting at the Macy’s window was quite romantic, but the ending of their encounter at the hotel seemed a bit rushed and didn’t fit well with what I felt I knew of Ally’s character. However Jack’s reflections told more of their story, and his feelings for Ally were absolutely adorable.
The ending was really sweet, and this short novella was a quick and enjoyable read and a fun start in kicking off the holiday season!
