Publisher's Summary

What do you do when love strikes at the worst possible moment?

Dagny is convinced she’s about to get engaged while on holiday in England. What she doesn’t expect is getting dumped. To make matters worse, it happens on Christmas Eve. 

Allison receives an assignment from her boss that will make Allison’s journalistic career. The investigation will call for one thing: her complete dedication to the story and nothing else. 

The two meet on Christmas Eve night, and while Allison is brimming with joy, Dagny wants nothing to do with anyone. However, what’s worse? Being alone on a holiday or spending it with a stranger neither will probably ever see again? 

There’s one major problem. They just might be perfect for each other despite the terrible timing. 

Is it kismet or a curse? 

Best-selling lesbian fiction author TB Markinson has written a heart-warming romance about letting fate take its course to live life to the fullest. Listen to it today!  

Please note: This story started as a 20K novella that was originally published in a limited-time lesfic box set back in the winter of 2018. Some of the elements of the original idea have remained the same, but the project has expanded to over 65K, making it a full-length novel.

Not so bad

I like sex scenes but not to many I would have liked more story more details of what the MC did in life, not just hints…
For this book Lori Prince saved the day. She was excellent

An unexpected holiday gift....does everybody win?

I was given an Audible code for this audio book and am grateful that I can share this review. I am a serious fan of T.B.Markinson's work. Kismet was an exceptional read. It stirred feelings that surprised me. This such a positive and engaging set of characters and their journey navigating their relationship is so well written. I am not always on board for warm and fuzzy but that is my best and in my opinion a great way to describe this book. I also know that the statement can be misunderstood. The clearest I can be is to say it is like her other books an awesome read and Lori Prince does an outstanding job with the narration. It is a book. I will definitely listen to Kismet again.

Great narration and different story

I enjoyed this one. The story was a little different than the normal formula so that was nice. I loved the characters and the flow of their relationship. Seemed plausible to me the whole way through. Lori was great and I don't know if it's just this book or if I just never noticed it before but Lori sounded a lot like Maggie Gyllenhaal. loved the overall package!

Still Great

The first 2 1/2 hours were incredible. Just great writing and wonderful chemistry between the two main characters. The storyline loses momentum shortly after. Trading a slow pace and flirty dialogue, for two flimsy sub plots. The majority of this book felt convoluted and spacey. Which is a shame, because the beginning had me truly enthralled.

Lies we tell ourselves

In the renditions of what not to do in a relationship. Witty and bantering of two people meeting somewhere they wouldn't be if they had luck? Love the story and some of the funny senerios. The perfect performance by L. Prince to take you away into a life.

omg!

This book was amazing!! Lori Prince is a phenomenal narrator. she is one of my absolute favorite voice actors and that's on that. The performance was stellar! When you read a book, it draws a picture for you, when LP narrates she adds color and life to the drawing. She acts out her characters she doesn't just read to read. Literally takes me away every time. Incredible!!

The story was great! It was low angst which was exactly what I needed. Don't get me wrong it has enough angst to keep the pages turning but it was due to outside forces not our two MCs breaking up at the 90% mark for the usual dramatic effect. I loathe this writing style with an absolute passion. It was good to listen to one that really didn't have that. The story flowed. One of the MCs took so long to figure out things but she got there in the end. She's one of those "too nice people" that you just want to shake. Will you have points of frustration? Yes. Will you want to shake our MC saying "grow a spine"? Yes. Will you reread it because it was an amazing sorry with superb narration? Yes! Do I recommend this book? Lol 100%
