We Met in December is a sweet Christmas rom-com by Rosie Curtis. 


Note: I received a free copy of We Met in December from the publisher, HarperCollins, in exchange for an honest review.

We Met in December by Rosie Curtis is a sweetly romantic comedy from start to finish. It has an authentic feel to it, especially Jess’s voice. Curtis hits precisely the right notes as Jess adjusts to life in a new city, a dream job that at times is overwhelming, and her feelings for Alex. 

However, after spending two weeks away during the Christmas holidays, she returns to find Alex secretly involved with one of their roommates. What follows is a year of buried feelings, self-discovery, and a slow-burn romance that will have you sighing in delight.

What really sells We Met in December, is Curtis’s use of London as a secondary character. She sends Jess and Alex on long walks through London.

During their strolls, as Alex shows Jess around, the two become fast friends. While they do grow closer, they are hiding truths from the other. At times, I wanted to shake them as they talked past each other.

Still, these walks become increasingly more romantic. Not between Alex and Jess, but to the reader.

We Met in December is not without faults. Secondary characters were somewhat flat and lacked the punch needed when either Jess or Alex turned to them. However, Jess’s relationship with her grandmother and mother was beautifully done. 

Told primarily from Jess’s point of view, We Met in December is a charming, relatable holiday read.

We Met in December is coming to a bookstore near you on November 5, 2019.
