Very Early Bill Evans. Virgo Wayne Shorter. The story is told from both Jack and Laurie's perspectives, starting from the snowy December day they find themselves on opposite sides of a misty bus window, inexplicably drawn to each other. The moment is brief but the bond it forms within them is strong and leaves them both marked. Can they find each other again or was this doomed to be a missed, fleeting moment in both their lives? This is not a typical love story. It unfolds over the course of ten, angst filled years! In the decade following the moment they first laid eyes on each other we follow Laurie and Jack's ups and downs, their heartaches and relationships, misunderstandings and of course their friendship and undeniable connection.
They may have the world's worst timing and a seemingly impossible road to love and happiness together but you can't help but root for them while wondering - will they ever actually get to be together? Do you believe in destiny? That we all have that one perfect match - the person we are meant to be with! One Day in December was charming, complex and romantic. Laurie and Jack are perfectly flawed and the kind of well written characters that feel like friends you want to shake and yell at for not being honest about their feelings.
Every romantic at heart needs this book in their life! View all 56 comments. Oct 10, Debra rated it really liked it Shelves: netgalley. Laurie sees a man outside of her bus window one day.

This book has heart. I like that these people cared deeply for each other and as a reader, I cared about them. I found this book to be addictive. I had to keep reading to find out what was going to happen to these characters. This is a great book to curl up with a blanket with. My only complaint with this book is that I wanted an epilogue. When the book ended, I thought "Come On! I wanted just a little bit more time with these characters. I found this book to be engaging, fun and a very enjoyable read.
It has a little bit of everything: friendship, loss, grief, new beginnings, forgiveness, heartache, and love.

I thoroughly enjoyed this one but it definitely made me feel a little icky and I don't know what to do with that information lmao.
I was rooting for the protagonists but I felt like I shouldn't have been. Also the love interest was kind of a shit for most of this? View all 28 comments.

Instead, wrong matches are made, friendships are put to the test, and the notion of true love is tested. This is the story of Laurie, Sarah, and Jack. Will true love prevail or will one be left heartbrok Heartwarming! Will true love prevail or will one be left heartbroken?
What I liked about One Day in December is that all of the characters are likable. I appreciated that the characters had depth and evolve over the course of the story. Prior to reading this, I was in a bit of a reading slump. Nothing fit or felt quite right until I read One Day in December.
This turned out to be the perfect holiday read as it took away my reading frustrations and brought me into the holiday cheer! View all 55 comments. Nov 19, Christina - Traveling Sister rated it really liked it Shelves: traveling-sisters. It all begins one day in December I know, shocker, you had no idea. As their eyes meet, she feels an instant connection. From now on, if anyone asks me if I've ever fallen in love at first sight, I shall say yes, for one glorious minute on 21 December Even though it was just one fleeting moment between Laurie and Jack AKA "Bus Boy" she spends the next year looking for him everywhere she goes.
She sees him in bars, at bus stops, in shops because she can't even begin to fathom that it wasn't destiny passing her by. Of course, fate had far bigger things planned for Laurie and Jack and they do reconnect. Only this time, it's on the arm of her best friend Sarah. As we receive Jack's point of view, it turns out he actually did recognize Laurie - and he remembers the many times he thought about her after their chance encounter at the bus stop as well. However, nothing in life is ever easy and he genuinely does care for Sarah, so he attempts a friendship with Laurie, despite it's difficulty.
You tread lightly through life, but you leave deep footprints that are hard for other people to fill. There was an immediate cinematic quality to this and I will be truly shocked if it doesn't get made into a movie in the near future. This story follows 10 years between Laurie, Jack and Sarah and their ever changing relationships with one another, along with people they meet along the way.
While it's a fairly traditional romance there was something effortlessly engaging here that keeps the reader attached to not just the story, but the characters as well. Who was St Valentine anyway and what made him such an expert on romance? What's great is that Silver doesn't just rely on angst here, while it's there in spades there's also a levity and humor that carries throughout the story. This isn't just about the dreaded love triangle, betrayal or friendships and relationships lost and found. No, it's about life, about it's triumphs and failures, about success and loss, about growth and learning who we are.
While this ultimately fell just a bit short for me because it was quite predictable, I absolutely loved the story Silver wove and it's a quick, incredibly fun read that I had a really fun time with. I'd suggest this for fans of romance or anyone looking for a quick, fun and cozy winter read! Thank you to the ever amazing Traveling Sisters for facilitating this group read and providing us with physical ARCs!!!

Dec 16, KAS rated it it was amazing. I need to get off this bus. Well folks, it just gets juicier and more captivating with each passing chapter ; Of course, I went in blind!
Of course, it was the best way to go! Of course, I recommend you doing the same! Of course, I am convinced you will love it as much as I did!! I would describe this story as sophisticated chick-lit. It is full of sass, sensuality and surprises. I so loved this was told in dual narrative. I truly enjoyed getting into the heads of the characters. And these characters, the whole lot of them are a jovial, witty bunch.
A bunch I desired to find true happiness. Thank you dearest friend, Jennifer, for gifting me this incredible book!! Honestly it can be read anytime of the year. View all 87 comments.
