Goodreads:  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.

Kritters Thoughts:  Does love at first sight happen?  While riding a bus Laurie spots a guy and she swears she is destined for this guy and she is sure that he spots her too.  He will enter and exit her life over a course of a few years, but the question remains, will they eventually find each other at the right time and fall in love?

What a great story.  I love reading as these two wove in and out of each other's lives and the ups and downs they had, it made the ending (trying not to spoil!) so satisfying.  The timing of them meeting often in December gave it a little something extra and I am so glad I read it in the middle of all my Christmas romance reading.  

If you enjoy those tv shows or movies where it is all a will they, won't they, then this book is right up your alley and you will read this one so fast!  I recommend picking this one up during the holiday season, it is so quick and easy to read during the craziness this season can be.  

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
