Goodreads:  "What if his proposal had an expiration date?"

Hannah’s in a bit of a pickle. In twelve days she flies from Hong Kong to the US with Sam, where he’s finally going to meet her parents… and ask to marry her.

Since overcoming a rather rocky patch in their relationship (which was totally his fault), he really is a new man, and they’re completely in love. The problem is, she feels panicky every time she contemplates matrimony. Which is perfectly normal, isn’t it? Isn’t it?! She has no idea but she’s got to find out before he pops the question... because she’s not 100% sure she’s going to say yes. Which will make for a very uncomfortable family holiday. He’s got to ask her before they go. So Operation Proposal begins. 

As time ticks down to their flight, Hannah realizes that her own secrets are threatening their future. Before she can be happy with Sam, she’s got a lot to learn about herself in the twelve days to Christmas.

Kritters Thoughts:  A wonderful holiday novella that will you get you in the mood to find the person you love and tell them why you are glad they are the one by your side through the holiday season.  Sam is a young woman from the United States who has lived in London and now currently resides in Hong Kong - she moved there for a boy (that part of the story hit close to home!).  She is getting back together with the guy she moved for and is trying to decide if this is the relationship that can last a lifetime.  

I especially liked this book because it hit on the topic of women changing themselves to fit into a relationship - not to hop on a soap box, but I think it is vital from the first date on for women and men to be their true selves, so you know from the beginning if you are compatible   I have had some moments where I tried to change a part of myself to fit with another person - it never works.

I loved how each chapter had a header that gave the reader a glimpse into what was going to happen, but also went along with the overarching theme of twelve days til christmas.  The characters were great, the story was full, but a quick novella and it was a great read to start the holiday season.

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel

  1. I'm so glad you liked the book! Sorry, there's no sequel (it WAS the sequel!) but I've a brand new book coming out in February called Bella Summer Takes a Chance that I think you'll enjoy at least as much :-)
