'Tis the season for finding romance in this hilarious and uplifting holiday read

When it comes to relationships, thirty-four-year-old Kate Turner is ready to say "Bah, humbug." The sleepy town of Blexford, England, isn't exactly brimming with prospects, and anyway, Kate's found fulfillment in her career as a designer, and in her delicious side job baking for her old friend Matt's neighborhood café. But then her best friend signs her up for a dating agency that promises to help singles find love before the holidays. Twenty-three days until Christmas. Twelve dates with twelve different men. The odds must finally be in her favor . . . right?

Yet with each new date more disastrous than the one before--and the whole town keeping tabs on her misadventures--Kate must remind herself that sometimes love, like mistletoe, shows up where it's least expected. And maybe, just maybe, it's been right under her nose all along. . . .

I liked this book, a lot. I was casting actors for the movie! Make a great Hallmark Christmas movie.

It’s the book equivalent of the movie, ‘The Holiday’- that cozy English cottage, village and lifestyle. So real you feel like you are there living it. Loved it.

A holiday romcom with quaint English village appeal. Kate Turner decides to sign up for a package deal that gives her the opportunity to go on a date (arranged and supervised by agency personnel) with twelve different eligible men. What can go wrong? Kate's best friend Matt can think of a few things. Her other bestie Laura fully supports the plan. The rest of the village has a grand time treating it like a spectator sport. Kate is now the village version of "The Bachelorette." Along the way she might discover that her best chance for happily ever after has been right under her nose the whole time. Lest you fear for Kate and this onslaught of strange men, the book does a good job maintaining safe boundaries and even ejects abhorrent suitors from the dating package deal. It was an entertaining read with yummy food descriptions (except for mince pie -- yuk), a picturesque holiday setting, healthy helpings of humor, and artistic appreciation of nature.
