One Perfect Christmas - by Paige Toon

Original Cover
My own copy
The blurb:

 One Perfect Christmas picks up with Alice and Joe one year on…

He's a bigger star than ever, and Alice has managed to maintain her anonymity. But how long can that last? Will this be their first - and last - perfect Christmas? And where is Lukas?

Snuggle up in front of the fire to read this magical wintery short story about what happened next…

My Opinion:

Lukas or Joe? Joe or Lukas?

Well, it’s Joe of course. One year has passed and we’re at Jessie’s and Emily’s wedding. Alice is a bridesmaid and now lives in a big house outside of Cambridge. It’s their house, although Joe is barley there, because he has to work all the time. Alice misses him so much. She can’t wait to see him again and she doesn’t have to... He is there, in the church, she can’t believe it. His piercing green eyes are staring at her. He has a beard, but probably just as a disguise. She can barley concentrate. Finally after the ceremony she falls into his arms. They can’t wait to get back to their house...

What will happen next in their relation ship? Is Alice divorced? What about Lukas?

We can read about how hard it was for Lukas and that he tried to fight for Alice. Alice’s heart was with Joe all the time and even Lukas realised that. However, it is hard for Alice too, with Joe being an actor and famous. When Alice isn’t comfortable with him filming sex scenes all the time, he decides not to do that for a while and he tries to convince her to go public about their relationship. They can’t hide forever.
 What will she decide?
She takes him ponding and kiss passionately. Will someone see? Find out ...

I was so happy to read about the two of them again. They just belong together and their little Christmas is perfect and soooo romantic. 


My possible cast:

Alice: Felicity Jones

I really hope that you see this and reply to me because your review made me want to get my hands on that book even more! ☺️☺️ Thank you Simona! 💜

    1. Hi! I don't have a paperback of this one, it's my iBooks shelf. The paperback of this book doesn't exist. Simona
