”I’ll read anything she writes” EMILY HENRY
Can a little Christmas magic mend a broken heart?
“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
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?

Infusing the romance of the Christmas season with the humor of Groundhog Day and a dash of Bridget Jones's hopelessness, Kelk (On a Night Like This) delivers an utterly adorable rom-com. London lawyer Gwen Baker is newly single and fears she's about to be unemployed when she heads back to her small hometown of Baslow for Christmas. The Bakers have a tradition: whoever finds the sixpence in the Christmas pudding gets to make a wish—and this year, the magic proves all too real as whoever makes the wish leaves Gwen stuck reliving Christmas day. As she repeats the same 24 hours over and over, she searches for a way out of the time loop all while learning valuable lessons about relationships with family, friends, and her childhood crush, Dev. With very British sensibilities and culture, the story is less focused on Gwen's budding relationship with Dev and more on her personal growth journey as she comes to realize that when times get tough she can count on her entire family to put her in her place—and lift her up. It's a delectable, if slightly twee, confection.
