The Twelve Dates of Christmas by Jenny Bayliss
Happy November, friends! I am so excited to officially kick off the holiday season with The Twelve Dates of Christmas by Jenny Bayliss. We screened so many books for November’s pick and I’ve got to be honest with you, this one just captured everything I wanted in our first holiday book of the season! I hope you love this one just as much as I did!
Kate Turner has all but given up on finding love in her sleepy small town of Blexford, England. But then an opportunity arises when a dating service offers “The Twelve Dates of Christmas,” promising to set you up with 12 different dates in the weeks leading up to Christmas. Surely, one of those 12 could work for Kate. Or maybe what she’s been looking for has been there all along.
