Now this, ladies and gentlemen, is what you call chick lit: two polar opposite female protagonists, small picturesque village, atmospheric festive London, deliciously manly men all embroiled in high-emotion dramas.

The writing style is confident and smooth, meaning Meet Me Under The Mistletoe goes down as easily as a hunk of chocolate cake washed down with a cuppa. The plot almost splits into two, telling separate stories, but also cleverly interweaves to keep the basis of the concept together, and you're never given a chance to get bored. It's the perfect stocking filler, and great for relaxing with, so make sure you put it on your Chrimbo list.

If you're looking for an easy and charming read for the Christmas season, look no further - Meet Me Under the Mistletoe, Abby Clements's debut novel, will definitely put you in the Christmas spirit. It's a light and entertaining read that would make a perfect Christmas present or a great read the week before Christmas Day. Even though it's only October and snow, Christmas trees and fairy lights are still nowhere to be seen, Laurie and Rachel's story made me feel like I was sitting in fire-lit living room with the lingering smell of cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg filling the air. On top of a witty storyline, the book has a festive, cheerful atmosphere which I really enjoyed.

While lots books from this genre tend to be quite predictable, I was relieved to find that Meet Me Under the Mistletoe is not one of them. There are so many chick lit books out there (usually about love triangles) where you can figure out the ending before the book has even started but Clements's book was definitely a pleasant surprise. The plot was very well written, full of twists and turns and I seriously couldn't predict what would happen next. The characters are likeable, the plot is original and very enjoyable and I'm not exaggerating when I say I read it in one day. Also, in addition to the fact that the book has a stunning (and very sparkly) cover which I absolutely adore, it also includes two bonus Christmas recipes that are featured in the story. How creative is that?

The book has a third person narrator but it's divided into two parts - one chapter is about Rachel, the next one is about Laurie and so on, which I particularly liked about this book. Laurie is a brilliant character and she even reminded me of myself a little bit.

Meet Me Under the Mistletoe is about two estranged, but once very close, friends who decide to do a house swap near Christmas.

Laurie is a city girl, living in a flat in London with a very successful career that takes up all of her time. She’s trying to recover from a failed romance that didn’t work out because of her extreme dedication to her work. When things at work take a bad turn for her, she feels like everything is falling apart. She desperately wants to run away and hide.

Rachel is a stay-at-home mom who lives in a cottage in Yorkshire with her husband, Aiden, and two children, fifteen year old Milly and her younger brother Zak. She is happy taking care of the kids and the house, cooking and baking, and spending time with her mother-in-law, Bea. When Bea starts having health problems and it looks like she will need to go to the hospital in London, Rachel and the rest of the family want to go with her. Rachel contacts Laurie and Laurie is only too glad to agree to a house swap since it offers her a chance to disappear to a place no one would expect her to go…the country.

Laurie arrives in Yorkshire and quickly realizes adapting to the country life might be harder than she expected. Rachel and her family are overwhelmed by the speed of London. They’re used to the quiet of the country and they find London to be noisy and full of people rushing to get here and there.
Will Laurie survive the country life? Will she ever learn how to use an Aga? Can Rachel hold her family together as her husband becomes more distracted and aloof, and her daughter becomes more and more secretive?
Read the book to find out. I write no spoiler reviews.

I really liked Meet Me Under the Mistletoe.
