Overview

FROM THE #1 BESTSELLING AUTHOR IN HUMOR, TOP 10 IN WOMEN'S FICTION

What if his proposal had an expiration date?

Hannah's in a bit of a pickle. In twelve days she flies from Hong Kong to the US with Sam, where he's finally going to meet her parents... and ask to marry her.

Since overcoming a rather rocky patch in their relationship (which was totally his fault), he really is a new man, and they're completely in love. The problem is, she feels panicky every time she contemplates matrimony. Which is perfectly normal, isn't it? Isn't it?! She has no idea but she's got to find out before he pops the question... because she's not 100% sure she's going to say yes. Which will make for a very uncomfortable family holiday. He's got to ask her before they go. So Operation Proposal begins.

As time ticks down to their flight, Hannah realizes that her own secrets are threatening their future. Before she can be happy with Sam, she's got a lot to learn about herself in the twelve days to Christmas.

This is a novella of 120 pages in paperback and was originally published as The Twelve Days to Christmas.

Editorial Reviews

A Novel Review - Chick lit Reviewer
The Twelve Days to Christmas read just like a Debbie Macomber story. Easy and so entertaining. Any romantic at heart should read this and the other books in this series, although this one could be read as a stand alone also. I loved this book and will definitely be reading the rest of her books.

    A wonderfully delightful novella with a great cast of characters

    A wonderfully delightful novella with a great cast of characters!  I enjoyed being on the journey with Hannah while she discovered what she really wanted and how sometimes life works out just the way it was meant to!  Pick up this Christmas novella and enjoy a quick, fun read! 4.5 stars!

    This book was the third in the series and I recommend them all b

    This book was the third in the series and I recommend them all but if you haven't read the others, you will still be able to catch up. It has kept up the momentum throughout the series, which is exciting. It was also just nice to catch up with characters I know, and who have remained consistent in personality throughout the series, especially during holiday time.
    It is funny right from the start.
    The main character remains someone I can relate to and I think a lot of people will relate to her. She is flawed but likable.
    If you like "Friends" the television show, you will like this.
    I like the clever way the chapters are set up.
    I feel like I was able to know Hong Kong a little more, so that makes it interesting.
    I really got teared up at the ending - it moved me. I also feel satisfied and happy in how the series ended - loved the ending, and it surprised me in a good way (NOT predictable!).

    The secondI finished Misfortune Cookie, I bought this. I don't usually read series books in a row, but I just HAD to know what happened.  This was a fun, smart read. I loved learning about life in Hong Kong and seeing Hannah, the main character, grow over three books.  I could have done without the epilogue, but no big deal.  Wholly satisfied with how Gorman tied it all up. I also liked this final book in the series was novella-length, so there was no need to fill it with superfluous plot points that often happens in series books.

    A wonderful holiday novella that will you get you in the mood to find the person you love and tell them why you are glad they are the one by your side through the holiday season. Sam is a young woman from the United States who has lived in London and now currently resides in Hong Kong - she moved there for a boy (that part of the story hit close to home!). She is getting back together with the guy she moved for and is trying to decide if this is the relationship that can last a lifetime.

    Ok ending to a sweet 3 book series

    I wanted to know what happened to Hannah and Sam as I have been following them since "Single in the City". I loved the first book, second one was okay... And the ending let me know what happened but I didn't like it. Hannah's character became REALLY annoying in the last two books. She should have been like she was in the first one.
