Baby It's Cold Outside (Michael Joseph, 2021) introduces us to Norah who is battling alone, yet again, through the bustling December crowds outside Fortnum & Mason, she hears the first notes of a busker's song that transports her back to the most romantic week of her life. Laughing under an Italian sky, knowing they had to part, Andrew made her a promise: If they are both single on Christmas Eve in ten years' time, they will meet under the clock on Grafton Street, Dublin. Norah has no idea if Andrew will remember, but she has nothing to lose. So that's where she decides to go. To Dublin. To that clock. Hoping for a Christmas miracle with Andrew. But it wouldn't be Christmas without a few surprises . . .
