Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of One Day in December by Josie Silver, read by Eleanor Tomlinson and Charlie Anson. 

Laurie is pretty sure love at first sight doesn't exist. After all, life isn't a scene from the movies, is it?

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.

Laurie thinks she'll never see the boy from the bus again. But at their Christmas party a year later, her best friend Sarah introduces her to the new love of her life. Who is, of course, the boy from the bus. 

Determined to let him go, Laurie gets on with her life. But what if fate has other plans?

Following Laurie, Sarah and Jack through 10 years of love, heartbreak and friendship, One Day in December is a joyous, heart-warming and immensely moving love story that you'll want to escape into forever.

Wow

I loved this book and could hardly wait for my next chance to listen to more. I'm kind of disappointed that it has come to an end. Will look out for more books like this from Josie Silver

Life can't go on now I've finished the book

I feel lost, like I'm grieving the characters. I fell in love with them and I have never been so devastated for a book to end.

narrator was brilliant and a proper feel good book

the two narrators of this book we're really good, not cheesy and over acted. the storyline despite carrying out over ten years doesn't drag or have dry bits. would definitely recommend.

Loved it!

I was captivated by this book. I was invested from the very beginning and loved how tge story is told. The time jumps are perfectly timed and the characterisation is brilliant. I will miss the characters.

Lovely story, predictable but still loved it

There was something about this story that gripped me, even though it was predictable it still managed to leave me wanting more once I’d finished it.
Finished it in a few days whilst busing it to and from work :)
