Are you someone who won’t read a love story because you are not a “romance novel reader”? If so, you might end up missing a very sweet love story that I came across recently.
Don’t worry, I won’t try to convince you to read a trashy romance novel with Fabio on the cover…does Fabio even still do covers? Yes, I am totally dating myself.
I recommend this love story for people who don’t normally read romance novels…

I don’t remember who recommended this book to me but I would like to thank them! One Day in December is such a heart warming love story that I could not put down. Not only is this a romantic love story but it’s also a story about true friendship. I adored every character in the book and felt heartbroken to leave them when the book ended. This is one of those books that gives you a “book hangover”. Seriously, you will need to give yourself time to “recover” before reading another one!
An excerpt from the back cover:
“Two people. Ten chances. One unforgettable love story.
Laurie is pretty sure love at first sight doesn’t exist anywhere outside of 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 – Jack, the man from the bus – to Laurie.
What follows for Laurie, Sarah and Jack is ten years of friendship, heartbreak,roads not taken, and destinies reconsidered. One Day in December is a joyous, heartwarming and immensely moving love story, and a reminder that fate takes inexplicable turns along the route to happiness.”
Doesn’t A Day in December sound like something you would love reading? If you want to get engrossed in a charming love story, definitely add this one to your list. Not surprisingly, Reese Witherspoon recommended it as well!
In addition to A Day in December, I recently read (and loved) Before We Were Strangers. It would almost qualify as a “non-romance novel” love story but it did have a few very passionate scenes… Not that Fabio would be on the cover or anything, though. As I remember, I spent several late nights reading this one as well. What fun to get caught up in an emotional story that brought back memories of being young and in love!
