SYNOPSIS

Laurie is pretty sure love at first sight doesn’t exist anywhere but the movies. But then, through a misted-up bus window one snowy December day, she sees a man who she knows instantly is the one. Their eyes meet, there’s a moment of pure magic…and then her bus drives away.

Certain they’re fated to find each other again, Laurie spends a year scanning every bus stop and cafe in London for him. But she doesn’t find him, not when it matters anyway. Instead they “reunite” at a Christmas party, when her best friend Sarah giddily introduces her new boyfriend to Laurie. It’s Jack, the man from the bus. It would be.

What follows for Laurie, Sarah and Jack is ten years of friendship, heartbreak, missed opportunities, roads not taken, and destinies reconsidered. One Day in December is a joyous, heartwarming and immensely moving love story to escape into and a reminder that fate takes inexplicable turns along the route to happiness.

 

 

MY THOUGHTS

Do you ever get that feeling of “I am totally there with these characters” when reading a book? That is just the best feeling! With One Day In December I honestly felt as though I was roommates with the characters myself. What a great chick-lit book! I can totally see this becoming a movie.
With nods to some of our favourite 2000s tv shows and movies this book really captures life for the 20-28 year olds out there right now. I loved how the author really shows you the struggle when people make decisions in life and how convoluted it can get. I loved all the characters and really enjoyed the ups and downs of their relationships. What a great read!
Pick this one up if you’re looking for a cute winter story about love, friendship and cute British settings!
