This review is a bit hard for me to write because I’ve actually read this book a couple of months ago, but I didn’t have time to review it… of course I remember it (fortunately it was not that forgettable!), but the feel is somehow not the same as writing my thoughts and sentiments right away.
Let’s try, though!
I got this book from NetGalley and this is my honest and unbiased opinion about it!
I found this book on NetGalley, and I thought it sounded familiar (I probably saw a couple of reviews already), and when I read that there’s a part that takes place in Copenhagen I immediately wanted to read it. Especially since I wanted to read something light anyway. I love to read around the world!
Funny thing is, I expected to like the book because of the travel aspect, and what ended up completely endearing me was the craft beer brewing part. It gave this story a charming, unique atmosphere. Actually, I think this is what saved it from being just like another cliché romcom.
Otherwise the story was a higher level average, with many highs and a couple of ‘oh no, come on that IS a cliché’ moments, but in general I enjoyed it very much! The characters seemed at the beginning a little cardboard, overused ones, but they developed into interesting and lovable individuals, and by the end I felt like I wanted to read about them more! I especially loved Lydia, the sister’s character, she’s really strong and interesting.

That would be here definitely the beer brewing stuff! I’ve never read anything like this and it gave such a unique mood to the whole story. It made me want to go to a pub that sells craft beers, or something the kind…. or brew some myself. (
Well that ain’t ever gonna happen. Probably.)
Fans of romantic comedies who want to get a bit out of the complete clichés and try some new ideas (
beer, for example)!
‘A Moment Like This’ by Kelly Clarkson
I would definitely read another Pernille Hughes book!
So, that’s what I could make from this after ca. 2 months! I hope it still managed to get you into reading the book! Or..have you read it already? What did you think?
Have a great day!
