A Few Months Following The Events Of The Only One, Piper Vaughn Is Living In London With Her Boyfriend, Richard Spencer Despite The Adjustment Period, Their Love Has Not Wavered, And The Pair Are Happily Settled Into Their Life Together Things Couldn T Be Better, Until A Discussion One Evening Leads To A Decision About Where Their Relationship Is Heading, And Opens The Door To A New Career Path For Piper, Culminating In A Christmas They Ll Never Forget In what I would call a sequel ish, Christmas with the Only One allows us to revisit Richard and Piper, the titular couple from Mary Head s debut novel The Only One And the trip is short and sweet, which is perfectly fitting in the tone set by the first book.If you re picking up this book or even the first one expecting the typical overwrought drama we so often find in the romance genre, you re going to be disappointed There are no love triangles here, no unnecessary obstacles that pop up threatening to break up Richard and Piper If that s your thing, look elsewhere.All you ll find here is a continuation of the story involving two people who love each other deeply, and how that love affects everything they do The specter of Richard possibly missing Christmas with Piper because of a project, the evolution of Piper s photography, how those two plot points merge together at the end it s a tone perfectly in line with the original.There is nothing overly grand about this book or the love story it contains which is what makes it grand So many in this genre are overblown and overdone and just so needlessly bombastic that Christmas with the Only One s subdued, quiet take on the love between two people is as refreshing as it is entertaining.Yes, this is a Christmas story, but it s also a continuation of a love story that I enjoyed the first time around Genre fans would do well to pick this one up as well as the first The Only One and even if the romance genre does nothing for you, try it You might be surprised.
