A Scandinavian Summer by Helga Jensen is the perfect book to end the summer reading with. Martha, is a 49-year-old woman who is pretty much at a loss after the death of her husband. Her daughter, Rosie is off the Borneo to work with orangutans. She works at the library which she enjoys but there is something missing from her life.She decides to go to Denmark and rents a small cottage in a quaint village for a month. On the first day there she goes to a local pub for breakfast. She orders an omelet and is told that is only for two. A gentleman, Lars, at another table says that he would share it with her. They get to know each other and find that they want to spend a lot of time together.Martha is reluctant to start a relationship but finds that she can’t resist. Her idyllic month soon is over and she goes back home. There she finds out things about her husband that really upsets her. She starts a blog for grieving people who are in the same situation.I enjoyed the story, read fast and I was with her all the way in her situation, growing and moving on with her life and finding love again. This is the perfect story if you love a romantic comedy style of story. I highly recommend it!
