Description
'Tis the season for finding romance in this hilarious and uplifting holiday readWhen 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. . . .

        Bayliss delivers delightful holiday atmosphere and believable romantic tension in her cute and cozy debut. Kate Turner, a fabric designer and part-time baker, has rediscovered her independence since moving back to her sleepy British hometown of Blexford Village, but lately she’s been warming to the idea of finding a life partner. She signs up for the Twelve Dates of Christmas, a matchmaking program that arranges 12 dates at 12 different locations leading up to the holiday. The resulting (often mismatched) setups become the talk of the town. Even her best friend and old flame, cafe owner Matt Wells, can’t help poking fun at what he calls the “Twelve Dates of Shagmas”—nor can he hide his displeasure when Kate comes back giddy from a promising date. And though Kate is eager to find her soulmate, she can’t stop thinking about her earlier brief, tumultuous time with Matt. But their friendship is finally back in a good place, and Kate is determined to move on—if only someone else would give her the same “sparkle” she feels with him. Bayliss sets a cheerful, wintry scene and populates it with heartfelt characters. By turns tender and hilarious, this adorable rom-com is sure to satisfy.
