Summary

It's autumn in Yulethorpe, and everyone is gloomy. It's cold and 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 three a.m. learn to appreciate the slower, happier, hygge things in life - naps, candles, good friends, and maybe even falling in love?

Enjoyed every minute!

The reader makes this charming book even more delightful. I could listen to her read forever.
Perfect book to listen to on a cozy fall weekend. I wanted to move to the village and become friends with them all!

A True Hygge Holiday!!

Review title describes how I felt while reading it! I can’t think of a book I’ve enjoyed any more than this in recent years! So very descriptive, I felt like I was there with Clara! Would be thrilled if there is going to be a sequel!! ☺️

Great weekend listen

So maybe this isn’t classic literature, but it is perfectly delightful for a relaxing read over the weekend. I enjoyed it, and have tried to make my own home more hygge as a result.
