I love novels about chance meetings and serendipitous moments, so this one definitely caught my attention.
Always, in December is emotional and exudes a great deal of heart. I was invested in Josie’s life right from the beginning. She was likable and it was so easy to be on her side, hoping for the best for her.
As I mentioned, I love chance encounters, especially those that end up meaning more. Josie and Max had a great, memorable first encounter, which led to a special beginning to their story. Their story wasn’t a smooth one. Oh, no, this story had its share of turbulent, highly emotional times, and I was glued to the pages, experiencing all of their moments right along with them.
I really don’t want to say too much about the storyline for fear of giving too much away. I must admit, though, that I had a certain part of the story figured out pretty early on, but it didn’t take away from my overall enjoyment of the book. Always, in December is beautifully written, emotional, and I felt every part of it right in the pit of my stomach. I was always anxious to find a few peaceful moments to curl up with these characters and lose myself for a little while.
I highly recommend Always, in December to any reader who’s looking for a novel that will make you feel a gamut of emotions, one that will tear you down, build you back up and, in the end, fill you with hope.
