I borrowed Christmas in London by Preethi Venugopala from the Kindle Unlimited library. It is a beautifully written book.
Raina is in London as part of an on-site project. She has a bucket list of things to do before she leaves London. One of them is to enjoy a Christmas in London. And she is about to tick that off her list as well because she is the maid of honour at the Christmas Eve wedding of her colleague. A Christmas themed wedding.
Nathan, the best man at the wedding, is intrigued by the pretty Indian girl and is delighted when he recognises her as his long-lost childhood friend.
Will Nathan be able to fulfil the promise he made to Raina years ago?
Can they fight the incredible attraction they feel for each other?
Or will his painful past come in the way of their love?
Do they need a Christmas miracle?
Eight year old best friends Raina and Nathan, whose mothers are best friends too, are separated by a twist of fate. But that is after Nathan promises Raina a ‘Christmas in London’ and tells her to write to Santa.
Twenty six year old Raina Joseph is in London on an off-site project when her friend, Diana, wants her to become her maid of Honour for a Christmas themed wedding on Christmas Eve. And Raina is absolutely smitten by the best man and Diana teases her about the Best man and the maid of Honour falling for each other.
And when Raina is introduced to Nate, the best man, he turns out to be Nathan, her twin, and how can she be attracted to him, her Siamese twin?
And his father’s death when he was eight, has made Nathan wary of love, seeing what love has done to his mother.
I absolutely loved the story, and finished it in one sitting.
The story has been written in first person from the point opf view of the character whose name is the name of the chapter.
The characters are likable and the descriptions have been detailed beautifully.
It is an ideal story to read on cold wintery nights, the story keeps you warm.
