One Week ‘Til Christmas by Belinda Missen @rararesources @belinda_missen @HQDigitalUK

Book Description:

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!

My Thoughts:

This is a relatively short read but definitely a good one to read as we head into the coldest months of the year.

The story is set as it states in the title, in the one week in the run up to Christmas. In a way it was lovely for Isobel to literally bump into someone she is very much attracted to. As she isn’t going to be in the UK for long though, I did fear whether there could be any real happy ending for her and Tom.

Isobel and Tom are lovely characters whose blossoming relationship grabs the readers attention. You can’t help but get caught up in the festive spirit and the romance. I read the book in two sittings as I was desperate to know how things were going to end. If you want to know whether Tom and Isobel get their happy ever after, well you will have to read it for yourself.

One Week ‘Til Christmas is guaranteed to get you in the festive mood. What I really enjoyed is that the romance isn’t over the top. It’s believable and has you feeling that warm glow that only a book in this genre can do. A fab, fun and festive read with an added bit of sparkle.

My thanks to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources, NetGalley and HQ Digital for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
