About the book

What if you couldn’t get away from the one who got away?

Unlucky in love Jess is following her dream and moving to London. It’s December, and she’s taking a room in a crumbling Notting Hill house‐share with four strangers. On her first night Jess meets Alex, the guy sharing her floor. They don’t kiss under the mistletoe, but as far as Jess is concerned, the connection is instant. She lets herself imagine how their relationship will grow over the following year.

But when Jess returns from a Christmas holiday, she finds Alex has started dating someone else – beautiful Emma, who lives on the floor above them. Now Jess faces a year of bumping into (hell, sharing a bathroom with) the man of her dreams… and the woman of his.

Jess is determined to move on and survive the next twelve months… but love has a way of hampering even the best laid plans…

Set over the course of one life‐changing year, this is the most uplifting and moving love story of 2019.

My thoughts 

Firstly, anyone who knows me knows how much I love December.  The whole month of December is Christmas as far as I’m concerned!

If you want to be lit up like Christmas lights in shop windows during the festive period, then look no further;  We Met In December is the book for you!

I felt so good while reading the story of Jess and Alex.  It’s such a sweet story with all of the housemates playing their part.  As with a lot of books, there are characters that grab your heart from the get-go and there are others you might want to shake some sense into – and this is no different.  In my opinion, that is a really good quality about a book which is full of well-rounded characters.

When I finished We Met In December I put it away smiling at the thoughts of Jess and Alex and hoping that there might be a follow up to their relationship some day in the form of another book.  I’m just going to put that out to the universe right now!

Thanks so much Avon for my copy of this book in return for an honest review.
