Bo’s not really into her marketing job at an IT company but the last thing the twenty-six-year-old needs is being made redundant. With her secret relationship with colleague Ben up in the air, she takes off to her friend’s family holiday home in Denmark to regroup. It’s the middle of winter and there she meets artist Florence, writer Simon and chef Emil, who teaches them all about the cosy art of hygge.
True to its hygge roots, this book has a rather simple storyline. Disillusioned with her life, Bo finds herself falling for the Danish way of life and forges a new outlook for her future. It’s an easy read, perfect if you’re looking to take some time out, curled up under a blanket with a mug of hot cocoa.
