**I received a free kindle copy from the HQ Digital publishing company via NetGalley in exchange for a review.

I can’t argue it was an unforgettable romance because it was. I envy those who get to travel internationally for any reason. London would be a magical place to spend the holidays. At least it was for Isobel and Tom Bracken. She was from Melbourne Australia, where there was no winter fun like in England. They went ice skating, took pictures with Santa but I wasn’t in love with them and the reading process was gruelling. It felt like 10 days of hell tbh. Their relationship from the start to the end could not have been any slower. I know in real life it is probably best to even take it slower but this isn’t real life. My reading experience was laborious as the story couldn’t keep my attention because I kept dozing off. I agonized and persevered inducing headaches just to finish this book. All I can say is this book wasn’t for me. I think contemporary anything bores me to tears.

Goodreads Summary

Two people. One chance meeting. Seven days to Christmas.
Isobel Bennett is waiting for the number 11 bus when a man quite literally falls into her lap. Snow is falling, Christmas lights are twinkling, and a gorgeous man with dark brown hair has just slipped on ice and is now pressed against Isobel.
Isobel knows she’s not imagining the chemistry between them. But then his ride arrives and, embarrassed, he beats a hasty retreat, murmuring apologies – and Isobel realizes only too late that she didn’t manage to catch his name…

When she runs into him again the next morning, she decides it’s fate.

It’s a second chance for Isobel and Tom – but there’s only one week until she’s leaving London for good. Seven days of enjoying all the festive delights the city has to offer: ice-skating at Somerset House, mulled wine on the Southbank, Christmas shopping at Liberty.

There’s magic in the air and mistletoe in the trees – but what will happen when the week is over?

Living an ART filled life...“Creativity is a God-given ability to take something ordinary and make it into something special. It is an openness to doing old things new ways…The creative spirit is part of our heritage as children of the One who created all things. And nurturing our creativity is part of our responsibility as stewards of God’s good gifts.” - Emilie Barnes, The Spirit of Loveline
