Christmas has never been a happy time for Lucie Quigley and so for the last few years she has had nothing to do with the season of joy. When an invitation to be a bridesmaid at her friends wedding in America lands on her door she snaps it up. The only thing she is missing is a date.
As Lucie’s best friend, Dale Treharne has kept their relationship completely platonic (well except for that one time) so when she asks him to accompany her to New York he can’t say no. The only problem is telling his mum he won’t be home for Christmas. When wires get crossed and fake relationships are made can Lucie and Dale keep being friends or will attraction ruin everything?
Very entertaining story with a Christmas twist. A bit on the ‘When Harry met Sally’ side but different enough to make it it’s own.
Lucie and Dale are great characters and I was cheering for them from the start. The big question is why on Earth they hadn’t got together sooner. Dale is such a calm, gentle guy and keeps Lucie from doing anything stupid, although that doesn’t always stop her but he is there for support when she needs it.
Lucie has had a rough time of it over the years and there are secrets that she is too embarrassed to share, even with Dale, but as with most of us her past has defined who she is now.
A fun, enjoyable Christmas romance with some lovely characters (and some not so nice ones)
