My Review:

This story is probably one of the best RomComs in the World, IMHO! It is a heartwarming story filled with great characters, romance and laughter – I really didn’t want to put it down!

Jen Attison was responsible for bringing up her younger sister, Lydia, including making life-changing decisions about her treatment, after she was seriously injured in a tragic accident will killed their parents. Jen has always like life to be organised and safe since the accident. She has a job she finds boring, a boyfriend who epitomises safe and he plans for them to get married soon.

Lydia is secretly rebellious – a real dare-devil determined to make the most of life despite being an amputee. I have to say I really admired Lydia for her determination and bravery- she’s an inspirational young lady! Lydia doesn’t like the idea of Jen marrying Robert and makes plans to take Jen to Denmark for her hen party. Jen is a talented brewer, winning prizes in local contests and having her own, small brewery in their back garden. A holiday in Denmark and the opportunity to visit brewers there is a dream come true for Jen. What she didn’t anticipate was falling into a canal there and being rescued by a handsome, attractive man who is anything but boring! Should she keep to the safe, secure way or take a chance for once?

This is a lovely story of sibling relationships, daring to dream and taking chances as well of romance. The characters are easy to relate to and I particularly liked how they developed through the story. There are plenty of surprises in store for readers as the twists and turns of this story keep you guessing. There are plenty of laugh out loud moments with more serious ones interspersed as Jen has choices to make that will affect the rest of her life but there’s also a revelation to be made that could scupper all her dreams…..

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story and have no hesitation in highly recommending it. I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.

Synopsis:

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…
