Whisked off to New York with eccentric British aristocrat Georgia Hamilton. Amy experiences a glamorous side of the city that she’s never seen before. Along the way, Georgia initiates her protegee in the arts of old-school elegance.

When Amy Carrell finds herself single in the run up to Christmas. The Dancer from New York answers an advertisement to escort Georgia Hamilton to New York for the festive period. For Amy it’s a chance to visit home but for Georgia it’s the opportunity to lay secrets to rest!
I love Christmas and I often dream of visiting New York, so for me this book was eagerly awaited. But little did I know how much it would lure me in and warm my heart. The friendship that develops between the two women made for one of the most beautiful books I’ve ever read.
It was a wonderful experience to share the present day with them both and step back in time via Georgia’s memories. The memories which were a great insight into who Georgia is and why she required an escort to New York.
The story culminates to an ending I could never have foreseen. I found myself pleased that Amy and Georgia had found themselves brought together. For the difference they made to each other’s lives was immense.
They both had someone to talk to and someone who could listen and not judge.
It was bitter sweet to close this book and leave behind the words of Tasmina Perry.
Before, whenever I heard the term ‘proposal’ I would picture someone proposing.
Now, I will always think of this book. The best proposal that’s ever been in my life, the beautiful book that came wrapped In ribbon and entwined its words around my heart.
