Boyfriend by Christmas is a hilarious and romantic novel about bad dates, eternal optimism and what it's really like to be alone at the most wonderful time of the year.
It's bad enough to be perpetually single, without also being the dating journalist for a major lifestyle website. And Genie Havisham has just been set her toughest deadline yet: find a boyfriend by Christmas or find a new job.
Determined not to end the year alone and jobless, Genie sets out to find where all the eligible bachelors in London have been hiding, using whatever means possible. 
But among the terrible dates, one night stands and the unexpected return of her 'supposedly reformed' ex-boyfriend, could Genie have overlooked what's been right under her nose all along?


The trip had been part of Jackie’s grand plan.
Jackie and her boyfriend, the perfect Jack with his handsome looks, wealth and charm, would spend one season working in the slopes. A final blow-out before they finally settled down.
Jack and Jackie, Jackie and Jack. Childhood sweethearts, they would escape their small town and experience the romance of La France.
But at the airport, poised to buy their two tickets, Jack shatters her dreams of the perfect Christmas. He’s been seeing someone else. Not just anyone, their lodger.
With her last ounce of resolve, Jackie boards the plane and sets off on an Alpine adventure of her own.
When she’s not cleaning up fondue, carving the early morning snow, or nursing a Genepi-induced hangover, Jackie tortures herself with the smug Facebook updates of Jack and his new girl.
But as Christmas approaches, Jack is given an ultimatum by his father: settle down or lose your inheritance. His best option? Reliable Jackie, with her grand plans for a steady future.
Will Jack be able to win back Jackie, in time for the New Year?
Can Jackie embrace life as a single girl seasonnaire?
And what of the quiet and mysterious Jacques who is always there to pick her up and dust her down? 
It will take a special kind of romance to teach Jackie to let it go...
