Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for One Week ’til Christmas by Belinda Missen. Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources for my stop on the tour! Check out my review and let me know what you think
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?
For fans of Josie Silver, Lucy Diamond and Marian Keyes, this is one Christmas romance you don’t want to miss!
One Week Til Christmas is a lighthearted romantic comedy with a magically Christmas feel. My first Belinda Missen book, and I’m a fan of her writing. Charming with a festive and clean romantic feel.
The story is told in first person through Isobel’s point of view. She was a cute lead character. She loves her job, she’s smart and friendly. I enjoyed reading her thoughts and feelings as they were realistic and relatable. The romance was sweet. I enjoyed that it grew from a friendship to love over time, however, because the book is short, it did have a bit of an unrealistically quick insta-love feeling. But that didn’t sway me too much. I just enjoyed the health relationship.
One Week Til Christmas is a magical, cute, cozy romance. I enjoyed the writing, the setting and the characters. This definitely put me in a Christmas mood.
Author and sometimes foodie, Belinda is a ridiculous romantic who met her husband after being set up by a friend two states away.
Residing in country Victoria, surrounded by books, cat-fur, and half-eaten cake, Belinda divides her days between writing rom-coms, baking, and indulging her love of comic books.
