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…
A Gorgeous, Magical Read!
Witty, warm .. and a warning to anyone who thinks of ‘settling’ for safe . . .
Jen Attison is a young woman I can identify with; she has her own way of doing things and is a bit set in her ways. A weekend in Copenhagen has been on her list for a long time but it’s never reached the top – until a surprise is sprung! What she doesn’t realise is that it may well make her re-assess everything which features in her comfortable – but predictable – life.
This is a gorgeous, magical read! With some very clever writing – beginning with the title – it made me smile, giggle and nod my head in understanding all the way through. From Jen’s work to her relationship, and not forgetting her passion, there is tons going on and it’s such wonderful reading! Other characters just add to the fun, each with their own personalities, strengths and foibles and I just cannot fault this one at all. A rom-com is what is promised, and it delivers – big time! This is my first foray into Pernille Hughes’ books, and it has definitely put this author firmly on my radar. Bursting with entertainment value, this is a full five star read!
