Blog Tour - A Scandinavian Summer by Helga Jensen

It's my turn on the blog tour for A Scandinavian Summer by Helga Jensen.

It's the right time for love, but is it the wrong place?

After the tragic, premature death of her husband Anthony, Martha has spent all her time focused on her teenage daughter Rosie in their small Welsh village.

But with Rosie leaving the nest, and Martha's own job on the line, it feels that life is passing her by.

Inspired by her love for Scandi-noir dramas, Martha impulsively books a trip to Denmark, determined to push herself out of her comfort zone - even if the thought terrifies her...

Her trip to the tiny island of Fano becomes something much more: in the form of handsome stranger, Lars. Can Martha find love under the Scandinavian skies... but more importantly, can she find herself?

A romantic, warm and uplifting read, guaranteed to leave you smiling. Fans of Jenny Colgan and Kathryn Freeman will adore this feelgood read!

Bless her, Martha is so naïve and innocent, despite her being nearly 50, that I wanted to give her a big hug.

Set primarily in Norway, this is a story of self-discovery and growth, and of the realisation that life doesn't have to stop after the death of a loved one. I adore stories where the main character has a new lease of life in middle age, and this is a particularly sweet one.

The book not only has a wonderful romance, but it also deals with the weighty subjects of loss, betrayal, mental health and empty nesting. And it has a hunky, thoughtful, loving Norwegian guy in it. Enough said!
