This is such a charming romance with some bittersweet moments that added some emotion.
When Laurie spots Jack one day, she “feels” something. I’ve known people who have experienced similar instant connections, but who’s to say if there is anything to it. Laurie spends the next year “watching out” for this mystery man that rocked her world.
I loved all the characters, the humor and the overall journey between two people that seemed to be meant for each other.
A touch of serendipity and a fairytale-esque plot made this one the perfect little story of love, friendship, hope, and missed opportunities.
If you’re looking for a touching romance with a definite “sparkle” factor, this one is it!
Thanks to my friend Jennifer and the publisher for my copy to read with my book buddies.
A love story about what happens after you meet, or rather, don’t meet the one.
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.
