#bookreview One day in December by Josie Silver published by Penguin

Two people.

Ten chances.

One unforgettable love story.

Amazon blurb:

Laurie is pretty sure love at first sight doesn’t exist. After all, life isn’t a scene from the movies, is it?

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.

Laurie thinks she’ll never see the boy from the bus again. But at their Christmas party a year later, her best friend Sarah introduces her to the new love of her life. Who is, of course, the boy from the bus.

Determined to let him go, Laurie gets on with her life. But what if fate has other plans?

My reading experience:

I would like to thank Netgalley and the publishers for my free ARC.

A true love story rich with hope and longing as well as denial and fate.

This story is told by Laurie and Jack and in this way, cuts to the core of their feelings and reasonings and ultimately their actions. Without doubt the book is a slow burn, however it is engaging, satisfying on most levels and fun.

A mixed sense of a great read but wanting a better ending. I recommend.
