My Thoughts 

Magically charming and laugh out loud funny in a do over and over and over again (and again) Christmas day. 

Oh my gosh. This story, from the beginning, grabbed tight and held me, enthralled, in its cozy embrace. Gwen, her family, Dev - I loved these characters and I loved Gwen’s journey throughout this to find her own happiness. 

Utter enjoyment from this title, an absolute recommendation.

”I’ll read anything she writes” EMILY HENRY

Can a little Christmas magic mend a broken heart?

”Sparkles with wit and warmth . . . I’ll read anything Lindsey writes, but this one might just be my new favourite of her novels”—BETH O’LEARY, author of The Flatshare

“Absolutely screamingly hilarious, full of Christmas-y sparkle and a lovely boy-next-door romance, but with some serious depth to bring you all the feels.”—LIZZY DENT, author of The Summer Job

”Reading this book felt like opening a box of Quality Streets, getting out the Christmas edition of the Radio Times, then popping on a Santa Hat”—SOPHIE COUSENS, author of This Time Next Year

Newly single lawyer Gwen Baker is hoping that a family Christmas—countryside, a mountain of food and festive films—will salve the sting of her career hanging by a thread and her heart being trampled on. Because everyone else has their life sorted: even Dev, her boy-next-door crush, is now a tall, dark and handsome stranger with a fiancée. She can’t help wishing her future was clearer.

Then Gwen wakes up to discover it’s Christmas day all over again. Like Groundhog Day but with eggnog. And family arguments. On repeat.

As she figures out how to escape her own particular Christmas hell, Dev is the one bright spot. He might be all grown-up but underneath he’s just as kind and funny as she remembers.

Maybe, just maybe, her heart can be mended after all.

But how do you fall in love with someone who can’t remember you from one day to the next?
