The magical heart-warming love story everyone is talk about this winter

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


'The sweetest love story . . . you're going to love it!' Marian Keyes'

Prepare to be swept away by the magical, heart-warming love story that everyone's talking about this Christmas

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 snowy December 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 their Christmas party a year later, 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?

Following Laurie, Sarah and Jack through ten years of love, heartbreak and friendship, One Day in December is an uplifting, heart-warming and immensely moving love story that you'll want to escape into forever, for fans of Jojo Moyes, Lucy Diamond and Nicholas Sparks.

From Publishers Weekly

02 July 2018 – Silver's lovely debut follows two young Londoners after a missed connection alters the course of their lives. Laurie, newly out of university, spots Jack while on the bus one December afternoon. Seated in the bus shelter along the sidewalk, Jack gazes back at Laurie and something electric happens. Over the next year, Laurie contemplates the moment, searching for Jack in vain until he shows up at her door for a holiday party as her friend's boyfriend. Laurie doesn't mention anything, and neither does Jack. Silver, who is keenly aware of her influences (there is an immediate reference to the film Love Actually, and Laurie has a self-described love of Nora Ephron), divvies up chapters between Laurie and Jack. The story follows them through awkward dinners, double dates, and birthday celebrations that are full of highly flirtatious scenes where the two attempt to keep their mutual affection hidden. As they age, flaws also slowly rise to the surface, such as Jack's cruel streak and Laurie's problematic consumption of alcohol. Silver's propulsive narrative is enjoyable, and the mix of tension and affection between Jack and Laurie is charming, addictive, and effective. Readers who like quirky love stories will be satisfied by this cinematic novel.

One Day in December

Brilliant!!! I loved this book.

Wonderful and lovely in every way.

I loved everything about One Day In December. It’s a beautifully written page turner of a love story. The characters are likeable and real and you root for them from the beginning to the end. It makes you think about life and the little choices we make every day and how hugely they could impact our paths. It makes you think about second chances and how nothing is absolutely final. It makes you think about friendship and love and how powerful a guiding light they can be. Wonderful and lovely in every way.

One day in December

Absolutely brilliant! The ultimate love story that feels like a thriller! Was so disappointed to finish it. Don’t usually read love stories but was totally captivated by the smooth writing and wonderful story. Can’t wait for this authors next masterpiece.
