Why read it?
2 authors picked One Day in December as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?
I live a very busy life with four children, two dogs, an awesome husband, and a career of my own. If a book doesn’t pull me in right from the start, I tend to give up on it fairly quickly. This book sucks you in right away and keeps you turning the pages with fervor. It’s a complicated story about friendship, romance, and a young woman who thinks she has everything figured out, until she doesn’t, but then she does, and then she doesn’t. You get the gist.
I always scoffed at the notion of love at first sight, but this story just might have made a believer out of me. Laurie falls for Jack in an instant, but their road to a happy ever after is long and twisted, funny and poignant. One chapter could wreck me and the next would have me sighing happily. So much pining…but guaranteed to leave you smiling.
