Description

'Tis the season for finding romance in this hilarious and uplifting holiday listen.

When it comes to relationships, 34-year-old Kate Turner is ready to say "Bah, humbug". The sleepy town of Blexford, England, isn't exactly brimming with prospects, and anyway, Kate's found fulfillment in her career as a designer and in her delicious side job baking for her old friend Matt's neighborhood café. But then her best friend signs her up for a dating agency that promises to help singles find love before the holidays. Twenty-three days until Christmas. Twelve dates with 12 different men. The odds must finally be in her favor...right?

Yet with each new date more disastrous than the one before - and the whole town keeping tabs on her misadventures - Kate must remind herself that sometimes love, like mistletoe, shows up where it's least expected. And maybe, just maybe, it's been right under her nose all along....

This audiobook includes a PDF of recipes.

Fluff, but enjoyable fluff.

This book gives the same kind of vibe as watching a hallmark movie, but with better dialogue and a slightly more interesting plot. It’s a great cozy book for the winter season and has gotten me even more excited for Christmas, which was my goal in downloading it.

If you’re looking for something lighthearted & festive with a happy ending, this is it!

Romantic Christmas Fun

My cousin recommended this book to me as I had said I was looking for something light and fun to read over the holidays. This book delivered just that.

There was just the right balance of wonderful, expressive narration, descriptive detail and playful story.

Highly recommend this Christmas Treat!

Predictable

This was a light listen, but oh so very predictable. The concept of the 12 dates was cute. The writing was okay, I don't know that I would have liked it as much without the narration though. The narrator was great. I don't mind books that are predictable but even this was too predictable for me.

LOVED the story-didn’t love the profanity

Such a cute story, but I’m not a fan of profanity. Four F words and other profanity throughout. If that doesn’t bother you than you’ll love the book!! The narrator was AMAZING. Her voice was like silk as she described things. She would make a potato sound like the most beautiful thing ever haha!

Predictable yet fun and witty

While I didn't love this book it was still a fun, easy and enjoyable read. I loved the festive side of course all the snow and Kate with her baking and John with his coffee shop. Also all the date activities brought out the Merry Christmas of the story. The main character Kate was relatable and very likable. She tried to turn any situation fun with had me guffawing. The gingerbread house that's all I'm going to say HAHA.

Although I did wanted to judge Kate for being too picky but when it got down to it you should be picky about finding a partner to spend your life with. Also to me is wasn't realistic for every date to be hot and have a nice job. But the best thing of all was there was no cheese. Even if it helps me get past the corny-ness I do dislike rolling my eyes at romance dialog and lucky this was kept light and fun.

The worst part to me though was knowing who she would end up with from the very beginning. And that made the ending not very spectacular either. A lot of things were too predictable. Still though Kate carried this story with her quick wit and fun banter. Also Elizabeth Knowelden did a great job narrating. It made the story even more fun.

A cute Christmas romance

This book is adorable. I thought the concept of the twelve dates was original and fun. A bit predictable, but I enjoyed all the characters. And I love a good English Christmas romance! The narrator was so pleasant to listen to. I would love to read a sequel!

Perfect Christmas MOOD!!

I enjoyed this audiobook so much, and it sets the perfect mood for the holidays. I will re-listen to this while baking, crafting & wrapping, because this story inspires one to get lost in all things Christmas. I laughed and smiled at the story, and didn't even care if it was a bit predictable (which I had read in some other reviews). It was still completely delightful and the narrator was EXCELLENT - & perfect for this story. I highly recommend this light-hearted, festive listen!

2.5 Stars

This book had some good parts, but it didn’t really do it for me. I really enjoyed the premise of the dates and going to each date but everything else was a bit boring. There was also a lot of stuff with the landscape and her designing that felt like unnecessary filler. Also, I started to get annoyed by how many times we had to hear about that darn hill her car couldn't drive up in the snow and listening to the times she walked the hill in a blizzard.

The relationship between Kate and Matt didn’t work for me at all. I never felt anything beyond a basic friendship with their chemistry. Also, the way he treated her each time he was upset or uncertain was toxic. I would never enter a relationship with anyone who behaved that way, and she should have cut ties with him. I'm also disappointed that since I didn't feel romantic chemistry between them, it didn't make me all happy and giddy to see them end up together. I felt absolutely nothing for them.

The writing bothered me at times. There was a bit too much he said/she said. At one point, I about died when I heard, ""Kate," Matt said. "Matt," Kate said."

It was fun to see all of the different date ideas and the dates she was paired with.

The narration was good.

perfect holiday book

Whimsical with delicious treats, fairy lights, English holiday markets, fun date ideas and some love twists. One of the best Christmas books I've read in a long time. I will be listening to this again next year!

Such a Joy!

I absolutely loved this book. There were moments when I was literally laughing out loud. Kate is so well written I couldn’t help but root for her. It was the perfect holiday listen. I would highly recommend this book and have already been telling friends and family to give it a try. Can’t wait to hear more from this author.

Perfect Christmastime Read

This was the perfect Christmas romance book! It doesn’t get better than an English countryside in a small quaint village, a bakery, Christmastime and love! The author used such incredible language to describe the setting, fabric artwork, and pastries. It was so easy to visualize and even taste exactly what she was describing. The author also never uses the same words or phrases over and again which a lot of them often do. So glad I stumbled across this book!

Great little holiday book

Really enjoyed this book- sweet little story, enjoyed the writing and the dynamic of the main character and friends and family in her quaint village. Fun story sharing some of the successes and fails people sometimes meet when dating in these modern times. As a few people mentioned, it is predictable- but well done and comforting story. Laughed out loud more than a few times. Hope to read more from the author.

Adorable holiday romance

I loved this adorable Christmas romance. The story was a bit predictable, but that’s exactly what I want in a holiday story. It was like an audible lifetime Christmas movie. Highly recommend!
