She strives to climb her career ladder, hoping for a promotion, but there are always problems along the way or in this case, her Ex Josh. Kate is forced by her boss Megan to make a paid press trip to Copenhagen with six journalists who could not be more different.

She wants to introduce her to the Danish way of life, and Kate senses the chance to prove to ex-Josh and the management that she is more talented and accepts the short-term offer. Above all, Kate is under pressure of time not only to prepare a presentation for Lars Wilders, but also to prepare all six journalists for this trip and, if possible, to take something positive with them.

After five pledges, Kate still has to convince the renowned journalist Benedict Johnson, popularly known as Ben. But he does not care about lifestyle and hygge, and certainly not about sponsored PR trips. At this point, it gets heated between Kate and Ben and the two fiercely fight each other especially when Ben is urged by his boss to take the trip unintentionally. Kate now has five days to convince all journalists, including Ben that Hygge is more than a lifestyle and also five days to not fall in love with the bastard. Chaos breaks out on the way to Copenhagen, and the story gets very adventurous.

What makes The Little Café in Copenhagen special and an interesting read is the incredibly good and easy to read writing style, the great humor, the dialogues, the lightness, the friendliness, the warmth and the charm of Copenhagen. The book inspires the reader and the Danish culture, and the sights are beautifully described.

It is a beautiful, and light read that leaves a positive feeling and makes you feel comfortable reading transporting you to explore Denmark’s small cafes and taste the pastries. The author, Julie Caplin, manages visually and emotionally to totally collect the reader and positively infect the flair of a country. The protagonists are all beautifully crafted, and you’ll love to hate some like the bosses and Josh, which was probably intended by the author.

She had the perfect life, had a loving man, a successful career with one of the best magazines and was living the dream. But in the blink of an eye, everything turned upside down for her, deeply betrayed and learned of the betrayal most awfully. So when an opportunity presents, one that’s right up her career’s alley she takes it without a second thought.
