I had assumed, wrongly, that this was a Christmas-themed romantic comedy.  It's very much a light romance, but it's not Christmas-themed.  I enjoyed it even without the magic of Christmas.  This is a story of friendship that grows, and I liked the pace.  I liked that it's a story of being true to who you are, instead of trying to be someone else.

From the publisher:
Two people. One house. A year that changes everything.  

Twenty-nine-year-old Jess is following her dream and moving to London. It’s December, and she’s taking a room in a crumbling, but grand, Notting Hill house-share with four virtual strangers. On her first night, Jess meets Alex, the guy sharing her floor, at a Christmas dinner hosted by her landlord. They don’t kiss, but as far as Jess is concerned the connection is clear. She starts planning how they will knock down the wall between them to spend more time together.

But when Jess returns from a two-week Christmas holiday, she finds Alex has started dating someone else—beautiful Emma, who lives on the floor above them. Now Jess faces a year of bumping into (hell, sharing a bathroom with) the man of her dreams…and the woman of his.
