One Day in December, two strangers lock eyes at a bust stop. Laurie feels a strong connection and scrambles to connect with the fellow before the bus drives away. She doesn’t make it off the bus. He doesn’t make it on the bus. Laurie is convinced that she’ll see him again – she’ll find her “bus boy”. Months go by with no sign of bus boy, but a year later Laurie finally sees him again. However, it’s not how she dreamed. Instead, Jack – that’s his name – is her best friend, Sarah’s, new boyfriend.

Heartbreaking, right?

We drop-in on Jack and Laurie through ten consecutive Christmases – we follow them as they become friends, as they form new relationships with other people, as they keep their missed connection a secret from those around them, as they travel across continents, and as they navigate heartbreak, betrayal, and bitter disappointments.

If you’re looking for a “holiday-lite” romance to keep you company as the nights grow longer, grab this book. If you like the novels of Jojo Moyes or Emily Giffin, check this one out. And if you watch Love Actually every winter, give One Day in December a read.

Thanks to the publisher for the advance reading copy.
