Mallory Stewart is an on - the - rise young editor certain she's about to land a position at one of the "Big Five" publishing houses. All she has to do ro clinch the deal is attend her prospective boss's Christmas Eve party. But Graham Kendall, the charismatic author of a bestselling book on fate, insists her plans are about to be thwarted.
Mallory immediately discounts Dr. Kendall's warnings. Though she edited his book, the industrious Mallory believes in hard work rather than luck or good fortune. When a series of devastating Christmas Eve misadventures conspire against her, Mallory is forced to reexamine everything- her beliefs, her dreams, her own definition of success.
What will Mallory choose? What will she discover- about Graham, about her own destiny, even about...a man's socks? ( Yes, socks.)
I found the story to be very interesting and cute. I love the cover of the book.
I felt the story had some funny parts but I also felt bad for Mallory because things didn't go her way at first. I also hoped things would get better for her in the end.
What did Mallory choose? To find out the answer you need to pick up this book and read it. It is a great holiday read. I couldn't put it down.
Happy Reading Everyone!
Graham Kendall's book is the first book that Bib has had on the best-seller list. He and Mallory have worked hard to make it there. Mallory has worked at keeping their relationship professional even though there is something about Graham that seems to touch a part of her heart.
From the moment Mallory leaves work on Christmas Eve it seems that fate is against her. Or so it seems to Mallory. Through a series of mishaps and disasters Mallory finally sees what has been right in front of her all along.
One Fateful Christmas Eve was a sweet Christmas read and I enjoyed it very much. I loved the lessons that Mallory learned throughout her evening. I enjoyed her eyes slowly being opened to the idea that people are more than what they wear or what their circumstances are. If you are looking for a quick, thought provoking, sweet read for Christmas then definitely check this one out!
