ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: One December
Author: Kyle Hunter
Publisher: Monceau Publishing
Release Date: February 10, 2018
Genre: Christian Fiction, Contemporary Romance
Nikki has loved Mike for as long as she can remember (as early as age seven!) Mike has his own past hurts to resolve, having lost both parents in an accident when he was fourteen. He’s tried to escape those painful memories by leaving New York and starting a new life on the West Coast. New facts indicate, years later, that his parents’ deaths might not have been an accident.
At Christmas Mike comes back to New York for the first time in three years. He and Nikki rekindle the friendship they had as children and share their newfound faith. Under a Christmas moon romantic sparks fly . . . but their mutual attraction takes an unexpected detour.
Nikki is devastated, believing her one chance for a relationship with Mike is over. She impulsively takes a one-year teaching opportunity in Paris, so that she can face her own fears and get over Mike.
If Mike and Nikki run away, how can they find each other again?

IN MY OPINION…
As someone who dreams of traveling but has not had the means or opportunity, I live vicariously through characters in books. In One December, Kyle Hunter gives readers a peek into living in Paris through Nikki’s experience teaching there for a year.
But this book is so much more than that. It’s a story about finding yourself, about placing your life and your dreams in God’s hands no matter how difficult, and about growing up.
Yes, Nikki’s initial reasons for taking the teaching position in Paris include getting over her broken heart but the character growth she experiences while in France are exponentially far beyond that. And while it’s different than Nikki’s, Mike’s growth in releasing the questions and hurts of his past are just as relevant.
Hunter does a stupendous job in letting readers experience the sights, sounds, joys, annoyances, and tastes of Paris (and a few other countries in addition). If you’re looking for a story that allows you to escape to a different place for a short length of time, One December is a book not to miss.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I write inspirational romance novels and women’s fiction with a twist: My characters sometimes go places. This led me to create the Love on the Move collection of novels. Readers can take a trip with them and experience their journeys. They can see how the characters’ lives unfold as they make decisions to trust God (or not) in their next steps, learning about themselves and their faith, and finding love along the way!
I currently live in North Carolina but spent over a decade in France (where some of my books take place.) I also write non-fiction and teach French. In my free time, I enjoy doing pottery and salsa dancing.
