Hidden in this rom-com worthy love-story is an even more compelling story about growing up and the unexpected things that happen in life. The multiyear timeline keeps the book moving at a fast, never boring pace. I enjoyed every predictable page and recommend this book to anyone looking for a fun romance served with a side of real-life messiness.

This book blazed into the angst at 12% and nearly crippled my desire to pick it back up. I wasn't in the mood to handle the distress it was making me feel, so I switched to the audio to get me through the worst of it. It was smooth-sailing from that point on. In fact, the pacing, longer timeline, and overall story made it hard to put down. To my delight, this piece of romantic women's fiction ended up being a fun and satisfying read.

I'm not into romance but this was cute!

Despite the hype, I didn't love this. It had a very predictable and gullible story line.

This has a Netflix/Amazon/Hulu or HBO series written all over it! One of my favorites books of last year, it's easy to read and full of great characterization written with such warmth and caring details. It really is one of those wonderful rom-com stories that echoes some of the great British rom-coms of the last decade. Although the ending is predictable, it's a really wonderful ending that makes you happy inside. However, the rest of the book is not predictable! It has some good surprises along the way. I loved this book and it's wonderful for anyone who wants a light, romantic, modern read.

If you mashed up Bridget Jones, Love Actually and One Day, this is it’s lovely love child that I couldn’t put down once I started reading. The end is a bit too sweet but I'd expect nothing less from this romance.

A wonderful, character-driven missed connection story about love, friendship, and growing up. Totally charming!

This is an epic tale of three friends and you will fall in love with all of them. Josie Silver's skilfull character-building makes them your friends, too. Two sets of eyes meet through a bus window. The rest of the story will surprise you and make you break out the tissues. Real life is lived in this bittersweet romance and you will be sorry to bid these characters farewell. If you are looking for a new book to read this December, this is it. This edition ready-made for book groups. Discussion questions and an interview with the author already included.

A wonderful read for a day in December when you are looking to feel warmed by romance!

I always wondered if love at first sight was possible, then I read One Day in December by Josie Silver. I was rooting for Laurie after she spotted "the one" from her bus window and spent the next year looking for him. This romance was really hard to put down! --Chris
