My rating: 5 of 5 starsIf you are looking for a sweet, quick fun read – here is the book for you.
Laura Barnard is a favourite author of mine and I was excited when I stumbled across this book.
Florence has had a few dud dates recently, because she has been stood up a few times. She is just about to give up on another no show and head on home when Hugh starts up a conversation over their mutual dating woes. They share the evening together and Hugh enlightens her on a theory he has on relationships. He walks her home but comes back with a very import question. We then follow this couple on their quest over the next twenty or so days till Christmas Eve.
What I loved about this novella was it has romance, humor and it has an authentic feel about it. The couple have a few obstacles to maneuver but Hugh is so endearing and Flo was his perfect offsider. The balanced each other out perfectly. The other characters had great roles and there maybe a story or two with them. Classic Laura Barnard writing so highly recommended this gem.
