Review: One Day in December by Josie Silver

What is happening to me?!?!

A five star romance!?!

My brain is melting… my heart is full… I feel like the Grinch at the very end of the movie. I cannot even believe how much I love this book!

This was such a sweet story with some crazy frustrating back and forths, but omg does it tug at the heartstrings and you root for these two to get together and scream at the missed chances, wrong decisions, and opportunities for love. In one moment of snowy, glittery magic, Laurie and Jack fell in love… or did they? It was literally, one moment, one glance – her on a bus looking out the window, his sitting at a bus stop looking in – one day in December. And Laurie spends the entire next year trying to find her “bus boy”. But then someone else finds him first.

Laurie and Jack just might be destined to be together. What follows is years and years of missed opportunities, wrong paths and wrong turns, big loves and even bigger obstacles, and a whole bunch of super sweet moments that would make any heart flutter… I loved this story, from the very first page to the very last page. I will be SO MAD if someone does not grab this sweet story and make it into the most epic romance movie ever, because this would totally knock The Notebook off it pedestal.

There’s something insanely magical about this book, and even the biggest grinch with the darkest heart, could not help but fall in love with this gorgeous tale of falling in love.

About the book (from Amazon)

Two people. Ten chances. One unforgettable love story.

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.
