The blurb

 

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…

My review

 

Firstly, I just want to talk about the title! Yes, the title!! To non-Danes this might not mean a lot, but I believe Pernille is doing some word play on the Danish beer giant Carlsberg and their slogan: “PROBABLY THE BEST BEER IN THE WORLD”. I also believe that their logo, a crown, is behind the name of the factitious brew giant “Kronegaard” in the book (krone means crown in Danish). Clever and fun puns, what can I say, I love it!!!

 

 

Now on to what is probably one of the funniest and cutest books I’ve read in a long time!! In true RomCom & ChickLit style the main characters meet under awkward circumstances, and share instant chemistry. What sets this book apart is that it focuses on different love, apart from the obvious romance. There’s the love between Jen and her sister Lydia – who shows us that while love does hurt, it can indeed conquer everything most things.

I think what I like the most, is also why I struggled with the first 30% of the book!! Jen is not just flawed and quirky – she’s obnoxious egocentric. And my personal pet peeve: she’s a cheater. Even when she claims not to think about it, or try to avoid the ugly truth, she cheats on her fiance and avoid dealing with thins like a ninja. But all her annoying ways are redeemed when I realised that she’s created that way on purpose. We’re not talking about an author who doesn’t know what she’s doing, or fails at making an endearing character. It’s all part of her master plan, and it works. I had my doubts, but once I caught on I started to fall in love with all the characters. Flaws and all.

 

The characters are refreshingly new! Jen’s passion and hobby is brewing beers. Yes, a heroine brewster. And her sister is a one legged adrenaline junkie. Needless to say that they’re both rather atypical and that just makes them all the better. As a Dane I’m over the moon that there’s finally a Danish author who uses this for a setting. Admittedly most of the plot takes place in England, but there’s so much Danish stuff in there it made me miss our pastry’s, liquorice, beer and of course my family.

Pernille Hughes is a RomCom author and mum, whose debut novel was SWEATPANTS AT TIFFANIE’S, which is now followed by PROBABLY THE BEST KISS IN THE WORLD. Previously her writing has been printed in The Sunday Times and the fabulous SUNLOUNGER summer anthologies.

Pernille (pronounced Pernilla) studied Film & Literature at uni and took her first job in advertising, having been lured by the temptation of freebies, but left when Status Quo tickets was as good as it got. After a brief spell marketing Natural History films, she switched to working in Children’s television which for a time meant living in actual Teletubbyland, sharing a photocopier with Laa-Laa.

Now, she lives in actual Buckinghamshire, sharing a photocopier with her husband and their four spawn. While the kids are at school she scoffs cake and writes RomCom stories in order to maintain a shred of sanity.
