Jen Attison likes her life Just So. But being fished out of a canal in Copenhagen by her knickers is definitely NOT on her to do list.
From cinnamon swirls to a spontaneous night of laughter and fireworks, Jen’s city break with the girls takes a turn for the unexpected because of her gorgeous, mystery rescuer.
Back home, Jen faces a choice. A surprise proposal from her boyfriend, ‘boring’ Robert has offered Jen the safety net she always thought she wanted. But with the memories of her Danish adventure proving hard to forget, maybe it’s time for Jen to stop listening to her head and start following her heart…
I received a copy of this book from Harper Impulse via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
Fun, original, romantic, with so many ‘laugh-out-loud moments this is the ideal book for your holiday.
You escape into Jen and Lydia’s world, which has a wonderful sister dynamic, a whole crew of work colleagues, who are so bizarre, you are smiling before you read about their latest escapade or idea, and a chance of romance for Jen, who likes control and lists, and naively thought her life was all mapped out, much to her younger sister Lydia’s despair.
Jen feels responsible for Lydia’s happiness and all her life choices are driven by this. She doesn’t believe in romance, so what will she do when it unexpectedly finds her and turns her world upside down?
Meeting an attractive stranger in Copenhagen, in the most hilarious and serendipitous of ways, lets Jen experience a lighter side of life and she realises she has choices, her emotional journey is lovely and you want her to realise with a little courage she can make her life full of laughter, passion and romance rather than duty, lists and security.
A lovely romantic comedy, with a uniquely crafted main protagonist, a cast of quirky supporting characters who make this a story worth reading and you learn, probably all there is to know, about craft beer.
