Format: Paperback
Romily Parker meets a gorgeous stranger on the last Saturday before Christmas after embarrassingly telling her best friend she is in love with him. The stranger kisses her and tells her she is beautiful then disappears. Romily is on a mission to find him. Her best friend Wren, Auntie Mags and Uncle Dudley help her find him but do they succeed?
I loved this book from the gorgeous Christmas cover until the end. I think although the first few chapters are set around the Christmas period it's a book that can be read any time of the year, I found it funny; I loved the song titles after each chapter number. I couldn't put it down; I wanted to see what would happen at the end. I want to adopt Auntie Mags and Uncle Dudley as my own Auntie and Uncle. I would definitely recommend this book; it's the best book so far by this Author.

Somehow, I have managed to not yet read a Miranda Dickinson novel, despite her having released 2 gorgeous books over the past few years. Now I've started my own site, I decided it was time to finally read one of Miranda's books and eagerly decided to read her new book, It Started With A Kiss. Firstly, I have to comment on the cover - gorgeous much?! The pink and wintery scene work perfectly together, and it's definitely one of my favourite book covers of the year. I've read such positive things about Miranda's earlier books that I had a feeling I was going to like this one, but I didn't just like it... I loved it and here's why!

This book follows the character of Romily Parker on her quest to find her "phantom kisser" who unexpectedly kissed her in a local Christmas market. Romily has no idea who the man is, but after a disastrous heart-to-heart with her best friend Charlie, she decides she needs to do something positive with her life and sets about looking for PK (phantom kisser!).Romily is a lovely character, if a little bit barmy with her obsession with PK at first. However, I found her really warm and likeable, and despite the trouble she's having with best friend Charlie over her surprise confession, she's funny and a great lead character for the book. Her relationship with best friend Wren was hilarious, and it was a lovely friendshup to read about. Wren was a source of a lot of the comedy within the book, and she was just great for some funny one liners!

The other characters in the book were mainly made up of the band members - Charlie, Romily's best friend, Tom, Jack and manager D'wayne. They are all really likeable male characters, quite unusual in chick lit I must say, and they all play their part in the story.

It Started With A Kiss was a brilliant read. I mean, seriously. Amazing. It's like an amazing chick-flick wrapped up in a book, if that even makes sense. It's the type of book you imagine Richard Curtis making into a film (it would be an awesome film and I'm not just being hyperbolic because I love Miranda). Who doesn't dream of meeting the man of their dreams one day? Who doesn't like the idea of being so sure of a man - despite just seeing him for all of a couple of minutes - that you'd spend the next year of your life determined to find him? It's so magical and romantic and heart-warming and if anyone else can make a plot like that work (because it is a bit more `out there' than your usual Chick Lit novels) then Miranda Dickinson can because she's just a natural storyteller. Romily's quest is one you can get behind; her unwavering belief that this year will be the year her life changes is unshakeable and easy to get on board with.

The novel isn't just about Romily's search for the mystery man who kissed her at a Christmas stall, it also focuses a lot on Romily's hobbie as a singer in a wedding band. Miranda Dickinson is part of a band herself - a wedding band, if I'm not mistaken - so she's rather aptly placed to write about a wedding singer/band and I thoroughly enjoyed that part of the novel. I loved hearing about the different weddings Romily and her band attended. From straight-forward weddings to weddings featuring bunny ears to weddings with medieval costumes... There are plenty of different weddings featured throughout the book and they're all very different and all very enjoyable. It's such a fun aspect to the book and Miranda has put her own experiences to brilliant use.

The characters in It Started With A Kiss are excellent.

It started with a kiss follows Romily's quest to find her mystery man who kissed her just before Christmas. With no leads to go on not even his name Romily sets herself a year to find him with the help of her quirky family and friends.

The first thing which stands out for me in this book is the descriptive writing that Miranda Dickinson uses to set the scene straight from the start of the book. I felt as though I was there in the Christmas market with Romily which helps the storyline feel more real.

The book starts off at such a fast pace and throws us straight into a gripping storyline. By the end of the first chapter I loved the character of Romily she is so easy to connect to and you find your heart going out to her.
This book has a real mixture of content including Christmas, romance, music and suspense which means there is something for everyone in this book. I really couldn't predict what I thought the ending was going to be in this book and this is what made it such a page turner.
