Written by Belinda Missen
Two people. One chance meeting. Seven days to Christmas.
Isobel Bennett is waiting for the number 11 bus when a man quite literally falls into her lap. Snow is falling, Christmas lights are twinkling, and a gorgeous man with dark brown hair has just slipped on ice and is now pressed against Isobel.
Isobel knows she’s not imagining the chemistry between them. But then his ride arrives and, embarrassed, he beats a hasty retreat, murmuring apologies – and Isobel realises only too late that she didn’t manage to catch his name…
When she runs into him again the next morning, she decides it’s fate.
It’s a second chance for Isobel and Tom – but there’s only one week until she’s leaving London for good. Seven days of enjoying all the festive delights the city has to offer: ice-skating at Somerset House, mulled wine on the Southbank, Christmas shopping at Liberty.
There’s magic in the air and mistletoe in the trees – but what will happen when the week is over?
For fans of Josie Silver, Lucy Diamond and Marian Keyes, this is one Christmas romance you don’t want to miss!
Delightful Festive Novel!
A lovely light Christmas read which will have you smiling and laughing all the way through whilst trying to work out what happens next.
Isabel Bennett is innocently waiting for a bus when she finds herself catapulted into the road as a very attractive man flattens her – and not very gracefully either! As she gathers herself enough to catch her bus, she finds herself wishing she had the presence of mind to find out his name at the very least. When she bumps into him the next day – not literally this time – she decides that perhaps fate is on her side after all! With Christmas closing in, and her flight home getting closer, can these two get their act together?
A delightful novel, and perfect to read at this time of year with all the festive touches which heighten your senses and get you in the mood for Christmas! Along with a hint of romance, there is plenty going on throughout this book and it is packed with sightseeing trips around London which, as a non-Londoner, I found very interesting! This is an easy novel to read, and I found myself racing through it with the many descriptions of festive fare tickling my taste buds. A very lovely read, well worth four stars.
My thanks to publisher HQ Digital for my copy via NetGalley and to Rachel’s Random Resources for my place on this tour; as always, this review is entirely honest and the opinions are all my own.
