The Twelve Dates of Christmas
Books | Fiction / Romance / Romantic Comedy
'Tis the season for finding romance in this hilarious and uplifting holiday readWhen it comes to relationships, thirty-four-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 twelve 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. . . .

"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.<br/><br/>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.<br/><br/>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."
