Single by Christmas by Rosa Temple
You’ve heard the saying, ‘opposites attract’ haven’t you? Well meet 27 year old Alex Marshall, a party girl with a penchant for free flowing Prosecco, and her devilishly handsome scientist boyfriend, Charlie, who loves jazz and dinner for two.
Alex and Charlie are together for 11 blissful months until Alex goes out of town and does something she will later regret. Was she drunk? You bet. Does she want Charlie to know? Well what do you think?
With the couple about to spend their first Christmas together will Charlie be the forgiving kind or will Alex be Single by Christmas?
This is a feel good, Christmas novel with very few mince pies, not much snow and absolutely no mistletoe – just a couple of best friends, a sociopathic nemesis and a lot of drinking.
My honest thoughts on this book:
Rosa Temple is one of the first authors I had reviewed for my blog. So there will always be a special place in my heart for this author who will without no doubt have a long and fruitful writing career ahead of her.
Single by Christmas is a very apt title for this book because if I were Alex's boyfriend Charlie, I would walk pretty soon into the relationship. I must admit that I did not bond very well with Alex she was literary driving me crazy! Although Alex is a dynamic, caring and fun character, she behaved terribly towards her lovely boyfriend, Charlie. But at the same time, Alex loves to help and is ready to listen to her friend's problems and dilemmas.
I think the first chapter sets the mood of this novel very well and as the book progresses the story of Alex and her boyfriend Charlie is unravelled ribbon by ribbon and deliver to us on a silver platter.
Even though Alex was a tough nut to crack as characters go I loved reading her story and seeing how and if the relationship between Alex and Charlie will survive past the Christmas.
Rosa Temple's writing style is fresh, fast flowing and intriguing! In Single by Christmas, you will find romance, fun and a spark of festiveness. Go and grab a copy of this book to bring the Christmas magic closer.
