We Met in December by Rosie Curtis

What a better way to start December than with a book about it?  Jess is a 29 year old embarking on a change in career and location.  She moves to London, a place she’s always wanted to live, to begin a job in the publishing field.  She leases a room at a bargain rate from a friend in a Notting Hill home which she will share with four others.  The only house rule, however, is that there is to be no couples formed between the housemates.  One of her housemates, Alex, has also made some recent changes in his life having just broken up with his fiancee when he decided to change his career from law to nursing.  The relationship between Jess and Alex truly begins when Alex offers to go on walks with Jess in order to orientate her to London.

The book is written in a dual narrative between Jess and Alex which in my opinion works well. I appreciated the personal growth each of the protagonists went through over the course of the year in which the book was set.  I enjoyed the description of London locations throughout the year which  provided a romantic setting for the book.  I felt engaged throughout the book and finished the last third in one sitting.

Thank you to Edelweiss + and William Morrow for the ARC of this book in exchange for the honest review provided here.

My rating:  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5.
