Welcome to the little cafe in Copenhagen where the smell of cinnamon fills the air and the hot chocolate is as smooth as silk.

Publicist Kate Sinclair’s life in London is everything she thought she wanted: success, glamour and a charming boyfriend. Until that boyfriend goes behind her back and snatches a much sought-after promotion from her.Heartbroken and questioning everything, Kate needs to escape.

Leaving behind rush hour and late nights in the office for a city break in beautiful Copenhagen, Kate discovers how to live life ‘the Danish way’. From candles and cosy nights in to the easy smiles of tall, gorgeous Vikings and eating your body weight in pastries (ok, that’s just her), the city offers her a new perspective.

Can the secrets of hygge and happiness lead her to her own happily-ever-after?
To the outsider Kate's life looks perfect. She works hard, loves her job and her boyfriend, but when he stabs her in the back and steals a promotion from her things start to change and she re-evaluates what's really important.

As always, Ms Caplin's characterisation is great. I loved getting to know the cast of characters and spending time with them. Kate's attempts to organise the journalists on the press trip was much like trying to herd cats, and just as funny. Ben, the hero, was gorgeous and I so wanted to spend time in cafe Varmé with the wise, all-knowing Eva.

I came away from this book with a warm, rosy feeling and finally understood what hygge is all about.  It felt like I had actually visited Copenhagen by the time I'd finished the book, and it is now right at the top of the list of places I want to go.

If you want to lose yourself in a fun, heartwarming read with some sexy sizzle, try this book. You won't be disappointed.

Loved this book and give it 5 stars. I can't wait to read Sophie's story in The Little Paris Patisserie.

Thank you Netgalley and Harper Impulse for giving me the opportunity to read it.
