Christmas at The Candied Apple Café
Christmas at the Candied Apple Café
There’s nothing so magical as Christmas in New York…
Santa is coming to New York!
Snow is falling, excitement is high and the delicious scent of chocolate drifts along Fifth Avenue – the Candied Apple Café is ready for Christmas! And no one is busier than publicist Iona Summerlin. With so much to do, she doesn’t have time to think about men, dating, or the fact her last boyfriend ditched her for her brother… Relationships are off the menu!
Hotel boss Mads Eriksson is not looking forward to the first Christmas since losing his wife. His six-year-old daughter Sofia has lost her belief in Christmas magic along with her mother, and he has no idea what to do. But an unusually festive business meeting at the Candied Apple – and meeting the beautiful Iona – starts to defrost Mads’ frozen heart, and suddenly life seems full of light and sparkle again.
If only they dare to believe, maybe all their Christmas dreams will come true!

Christmas Q&A for Boon’s Bookcase
1. What is your favourite holiday hostessing tip?
My best hostessing tip is to find easy to make recipes that are easy to replenish and serve. I tend to make too much food when I know people are coming over but I’d hate for anyone to go hungry. I always have a crudité tray with dips on it and I have a chaffing dish that I make queso salsa in and set out with tortilla chips. Here is the recipe for my queso:
1 pound cheddar cheese, cubed
1/2 cup milk, or as needed
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
2 (4 ounce) jars of salsa
Place cheese, milk, and butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. Cook until cheese has melted, stirring frequently. Stir in salsa. Add more milk if dip is too thick. Heat through and serve immediately.
2. What is your favourite way to relax over the holidays?
I always plan one night for just my husband and I where we just listen to our Christmas playlist, drink Bailey’s and have the Christmas tree lights on. We have a quiet night watching the tree and talking.
3. What is your favourite Christmas tradition?
I think it would have to be Christmas Eve. My husband, kids and I always make a seafood dinner that usually includes salmon with a tomato and onion salsa or sometimes handmade lobster ravioli. Then we watch Home Alone on TV and drink hot chocolate before we all head outside to check and see if we can spot Rudolph-The-Red-Nosed-Reindeer in the sky leading Santa’s sleigh before the kids hang their stockings and head up to bed.
