Book Review: One Day in December, by Josie Silver

One Day in December by Josie Silver book cover and review
Sometimes I don't pay much attention to book blurbs.  I thought, because of the title, that One Day in December was a Christmas romance. It is a really heartwarming and entertaining romance, but not a Christmas book.

One day (in December) Laurie is on a bus and makes eye contact with a cute guy at a bus stop and there is some electricity between them. But the bus drives away. Laurie spends more than a year (along with her roommate Sarah's help) looking for this mystery man. Sarah isn't just a roommate, she and Laurie are best friends and would do anything for each other. Laurie never finds the guy...until...Sarah introduces Laurie to her new boyfriend, who she has fallen head-over-heels for. It's Jack--the guy at the bus stop.

Laurie can't tell Sarah because Sarah is so happy.  Jack doesn't say anything, so Laurie assumes he doesn't remember her. The reader gets Jack's perspective though, so we know he does remember her.

Life goes on for Laurie, Jack, and Sarah.  They are happy, most of the time.  Relationships end and begin. I won't go into details, but I found it difficult to know what to wish for.

One Day in December kept me entertained and it was a quick, cute read. The characters were well described and the situation seemed a bit hopeless. They do get their "happily ever after" though, so we get nice closure.

If you are in the mood for an intriguing romance that is heartfelt and a bit complicated, check out One Day in December.

  1. This sounds like a nice holiday read even though it isn't holiday related. I've been reading some pretty heavy stuff and this might be a nice counter to those.

  2. I don't read a lot of romance, but this sounds super cute. I'll have to check it out.
