It’s not quite the enviable existence her readers would believe it to be. So, when Isobel finds herself in London for a full week before Christmas, she hopes to catch up with a few friends, have a much-needed break from her overbearing boss, and lay down plans for the new year. But life doesn’t work out like that.
On her first night in town, Isobel trips into a gutter when a stranger, charging down the icy pavement, slips and crashes into her.
Muttering his apologies, the mysterious and slightly breathless man, Tom, helps Isobel up, but quickly rushes off into the night, leaving her wondering who it is she just met.
She doesn’t have to wait long.
The next morning, her boss asks her for one last favour, and fate sends her barrelling back into Tom’s path.
Sparks fly, setting off a week of fun and frivolity as Tom – desperate to make up for his rudeness – offers to show Isobel all the best places in London.
As they visit markets and shopping centres, Liberty’s and snow-covered pubs, Isobel finds herself falling for Tom as much as she falls for the twinkling city.
But hanging over their heads is the prospect that Isobel is due back in Australia for a family Christmas.
With travels taking her away so often, she’s promised she’ll be there.
So, what happens at the end of the week?
Well, you’ll have to read to find out.
One Week ‘Til Christmas is the perfect Christmas book, combining joyful festive charm with plucky humour and distinctive characters.
A heart-warming and uplifting tale from a fresh upcoming author, this charming read is guaranteed to put a smile on your face on a cold winter night.
