I loved walking through the streets of Paris with Nikki as she spends a year teaching English there. It was a delight to learn that the author had lived in Paris for thirteen years. She takes readers virtually to special places in this romantic city. They experience the sights, sounds, and tastes of France. It was fun to learn the author currently teaches French classes in North Carolina since Nikki was a language teacher too.

This story was powerful and insightful about relationships and boundar

As someone who dreams of traveling but has not had the means or opportunity, I live vicariously through characters in books. In One December, Kyle Hunter gives readers a peek into living in Paris through Nikki’s experience teaching there for a year.

But this book is so much more than that. It’s a story about finding yourself, about placing your life and your dreams in God’s hands no matter how difficult, and about growing up.

Mike and Nikki, childhood friends. He 7 years older than her, but that never mattered to Nikki; Mike has always been her dream.

It is Christmas time in Adam’s Bridge. Nikki is all grown, with a college education, teaching high school English and French at her old high school in Adam’s Bridge. She is content; well, as content as she can be for she has not been able to fully release her feelings for Mike. Feelings everyone thinks was just a childhood crush. As the hustle a

Kyle Hunter’s One December takes the reader on a romantic adventure to Paris, with a story of best friends who miss the mark a few times while growing into the perfect pair! I loved the victory Nikki claims over her lifetime of dependency on a loving, but too controlling, father. Mike’s recognition of his own need for growth was equally satisfying. I really enjoyed the details Kyle captured of Nikki’s life in Paris which made me feel all the romance and old-world charm of the most romantic city ...more

I enjoyed Nikki and Mike's story tremendously! It explored some fun things, like a childhood crush that lasted through the years and living abroad. While I have always thought that living abroad would be a lot of fun, it was interesting to read about Nikki's move to France and put things in a slightly different perspective.
This is an enjoyable book to pick up, I highly recommend it and look forward to reading more by Kyle!

Get ready to roam the streets of Paris as you head through an adventure of a lifetime and living through Nikki as she decides to taking a teaching position in Paris. She decides that this will help her get over heartbreak, but will it really? But while in Paris, she learns a lot more than getting over Mike and as for him, the reader sees growth, both spiritual and emotional. One December is a beautiful story that captures beautiful emotion and the love every woman desires of her heavenly father. ...more

I love to read and write stories about strong women who still have flaws, but are ready to pursue their dreams, even if it takes them out of their comfort zone . . . or their country.
I write inspirational romance novels and women’s fiction with a twist: My characters sometimes go places. This led me to create the Love on the Move collection of novels. Readers can take a trip with them and experi
