Book Overview


#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELER - Get ready to be swept up in a whirlwind romance. It absolutely charmed me.--Reese Witherspoon (A Reese Witherspoon Book Club Pick)

The perfect book to get lost in . . . Josie Silver's characters sneak their way into your heart and stay.--Jill Santopolo, author of The Light We Lost

Two people. Ten chances. One unforgettable love story.

Laurie is pretty sure love at first sight doesn't exist anywhere but 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 to Laurie. It's Jack, the man from the bus. It would be.

What follows for Laurie, Sarah and Jack is ten years of friendship, heartbreak, missed opportunities, roads not taken, and destinies reconsidered. One Day in December is a joyous, heartwarming and immensely moving love story to escape into and a reminder that fate takes inexplicable turns along the route to happiness.

   I love this book!
A great story of true love between best friends. It is a beautiful story about how life can be messy and how things sometimes work out in the end. I love the characters and the story, and I felt like the costumes were realistic, too. Sarah and Laurie are good friends, he said. The author shows the bad side of good people and the struggles that they go through.

   Not what I thought it would be, won't be for everyone but it was a good holiday read
This was not what I expected when I picked it up, Melissa said. It almost had a thriller vibe to it when I thought I might have things figured out by now, like how to tie the knot, change the locks, or even just keep the lights on. This won't be for everyone, and some of it is a bit unrealistic, but it was a fun read for the holidays.

   A happier-ever-after story!
One Day in December by Josie Silver was a great read. What's more, the Harrisons are apparently planning a sequel, "Crackin' the Skye." I deliberately read it in December, because I was planning to do some research. The book tells the story of a decade of friendship, regrets, heartbreak and unrequited love. The way the three main characters switched back and forth between the three main characters was a delight. This is a heartwarming and quick read that makes you smile and cry, Melissa.

   Delightful
I read that some thought it was a chick flick, but I am no chick, and found this to be most delightful. It was a fairly light read, and it tuned out the outside world for me, Mr. D. Rowell said.

   Felt slow and fast at the same time
This book was heartbreaking at the missed opportunities but you are rooting for the characters at different points in their lives for different reasons or things. Some critics say the book is too slow. It was well-paced and kept me guessing where the characters were headed, added Jessica. Some say it's a typical romance novel. You weren't quite sure where you'd find the characters next or what life dilemma they'd be dealing with next. Traditional romance fans who are okay with savoring the romance and letting it build in a time-tested way will find this book to be their go-to. A great deal of work, said Dr. Goin.

   Several notches above your typical romance
I've enjoyed every book, but this was by far the best. It's a story of paths not taken, friends not taken, love and hope, Raymond said. Throughout the book we see the main characters change and grow, span, triumph and screw up. They are faced with choices and dreams that take a long time to realize. But the three best friends are human, likable and very much in demand. I'm looking forward to reading more from him.

   Basic read. Not exciting at all.
This book is extremely basic and hard to finish bc nothing exciting happens. I have never been a fan of reading, but have recently decided to read more often. Before we were yours, where the crawdads sing and the nightingale that was all amazing books. Maybe if I started with this one I would have liked it better.

   So disappointed in Reese
The Swedish girl has a book club, but she has no interest in buying anything. Young adult fiction at a young adult level is at a premium, Raymond said. The plot is absolutely predictable, Crowe said.

   Sorry, but
If you're a Harlequin fan, you might want to check out this book. It was not for me, Mr. Rule told the judge. It's terribly predictable and reads like the soap operas my mom watched in the 1970s, down to what's supposed to be a big plot twist midway through, redone and overdone for years and years, down to the place and time and circumstance. It was a tad disappointing, but I'd have liked to have read this book before I went back to middle school. I was hoping for a light beach read, but the beach deserves better.

   Brilliant storytelling
I've done little else for the last 24 hours aside from reading this book, so I'm still not quite up to speed. I fell completely in love with this story and characters, Morgenthau said. Truly brilliant writing, fantastic dialogue, wonderful complex and endearing characters, and a story that is truly exceptional, said E.R. Aronov, director of music at Carnegie Hall. These characters and their story stole my heart, he said. You tread lightly through life, but you leave deep footprints that are hard for other people to fill, Mrs. Rule told us.
