I’m thrilled to be one of the stops on the blog tour for Probably the Best Kiss in the World by Pernille Hughes and sharing my review today. With thanks to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for the invite to join the tour and to the author and publisher for my copy via Netgalley. First things first though let’s take a look at the description for the book…
ABOUT THE BOOK
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…
In Probably the Best Kiss in the World we meet Jen who has been trundling along quite happily in her life all be it in a quiet and sedate kind of way when her life changes after accidentally falling overboard in Copenhagen. In steps her rescuer and life starts to get complicated! As you can imagine from the title there is a kiss and wow and what a kiss! I loved the parts in Copenhagen and that’s simply because it’s the catalyst for where Jen begins to slowly but surely come to life.
Jen is an interesting character she has quite a tragic past and this has affected the way she lives her life and also her relationship with her sister Lydia. Jen is likeable but equally has her flaws which made her a more rounded character. Jen goes on quite a journey and I loved seeing her character blossom, gaining in confidence and start to think about realising her dreams. More importantly you see her relationship with her sister go through some changes that really needed to happen.
Beer is a big theme in this book and I loved all the details especially seeing Jen’s passion for brewing shine through. There is romance but it isn’t the main theme you also get family, friendship and a character that grows as the story progresses.
Probably the Best Kiss in the World is a story that is fun, made me smile and also had a wonderful dash of romance!
