Laurie is pretty sure love at first sight doesn't exist. After all, life isn't a scene from the movies, is it? But then, through a misted-up bus window one freezing day, she sees a man she knows instantly is the one. Their eyes meet, there's a moment of pure magic... and then her bus drives away. Laurie thinks she'll never see the boy from the bus again. But at a party later that year, her best friend Sarah introduces her to the new love of her life. Who is, of course, the boy from the bus. Determined to let him go, Laurie gets on with her life. But what if fate has other plans?


I really liked this book, it kicks off with a chance glance through a bus window and then whizzes forward in time to when things start to get very complicated. It’s proper drama from start to finish, stepping forward in time each year to revisit the characters and where they’re at in their lives. It was well written and engaging, I wanted to know what was going to happen next and loved it. But I guess it wasn’t too Christmassy, only really that first bit. Not a real complaint though.

Rating: 4 / 5
