We Met in December by Rosie Curtis

We Met in December: A Novel by [Curtis, Rosie]Cover on the left is for the UK. Cover on the right for the US.

Do you enjoy seasonal romances in which the right people end up together but it takes them a little while to do so? Have you enjoyed books by Shari Low or Josie Silver? If yes, or you would just like to relax with a nice read and a cup of hot chocolate, give this one a try.

The novel is about four friends who share a flat in London and those around them. One of the roommates is Jess who is thrilled to have gotten a job in London. Another is Alex who left a career in law for what he knows is a more meaningful nursing degree. They are surrounded by friends, family and relationships. The story mostly is about them in sections that are told by each. The other housemates include Becky who owns the house and is a lawyer, Emma who is a friend with benefits, and Rob a chef. London also feels like a character in the novel with descriptions of many places and neighborhoods.

This is not a deep novel but it is an easy and satisfying read. Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.
