The Hygge Holiday – by Rosie Blake

Original Cover
My own copy
The blurb:

The perfect recipe for hygge this autumn: make a hot chocolate, draw the curtains, snuggle under a blanket and read your way to happiness!

It's autumn in Yulethorpe and everyone is gloomy. It's cold, drizzly and the skies are permagrey. The last shop on the high street - an adorable little toy shop - has just shut its doors. Everything is going wrong for Yulethorpe this autumn. Until Clara Kristensen arrives.

Clara is on holiday but she can see the potential in the pretty town, so she rolls up her sleeves and sets to work. Things are looking up until Joe comes to Yulethorpe to find out exactly what is going on with his mother's shop. Joe is Very Busy and Important in the City and very sure that Clara is up to no good. Surely no one would work this hard just for the fun of it?
Can a man who answers emails at 3 a. m. learn to appreciate the slower, happier, hygge things in life - naps, candles, good friends and maybe even falling in love?

My Opinion:

I’m a big Rosie blake fan and together with the Hygge title, this book was very intriguing from the start.

I have two Hygge books at home and I have looked at them, but I have not read the whole book. I really loved this book, because it properly introduced me to this lifestyle. I really like the idea behind this book and Rosie Blake did a fabulous job putting this all into one story.

Clara is a very interesting characters and it was great to see what she was able to change. She is Danish (obviously) and on holiday. She sees potential in the little town of Yulethrope and is determined to get to work.

There are also other great characters like Louise, Roz or Joe. Joe is the opposite of Hygge. So of course this get different for him. All the characters are brilliant and a great mixture.

This book is warm-hearted, cosy, sweet and just portrays this journey of people finding happiness. Rosie Blake’s writing is on point, very smooth and clever. It’s full of humour too, some romance of course, so it definitely has all you can ask for in a book.
