"Cozy historical romance"

Tradgedy and illness have left Captain Stone Hawke with no where to go when he is discharged from the British Army. At the insistence of a friend he heads to America to recuperate before making a new start, though reluctant to accept charity he is to stay at the home of the wealthy Carringtons of New York City. Here Stone finds himself facing a new battle with Clara Carrington whose stubborn optimism and independence just might overcome even his ill temper and melancholy.

If you like historical romance A 5th AVENUE AFFAIR is an ideal read for a rainy afternoon and I enjoyed my trip into New York City of 1895. While as a whole the book is well written, I felt that some of the phrases used by the characters seemed too modern and found that it occasionaly drew me from the story. Overall the characters were sympathetic and the story itself entertaining, even though many of the problems the hero and heroine faced could have been easily overcome if both had been a little less stubborn.
