Recently Pernille Hughes took part in Meet the Author, and I’m delighted to be on the blog tour today for her book Probably the Best Kiss in the World 🙂
Jen Attison likes her life Just So. But being fished out of a canal in Copenhagen by her knickers is definitely NOT on her to do list. From cinnamon swirls to a spontaneous night of laughter and fireworks, Jen’s city break with the girls takes a turn for the unexpected because of her gorgeous, mystery rescuer.
Back home, Jen faces a choice. A surprise proposal from her boyfriend, ‘boring’ Robert has offered Jen the safety net she always thought she wanted. But with the memories of her Danish adventure proving hard to forget, maybe it’s time for Jen to stop listening to her head and start following her heart…

Such a fantastic book!
Jen is living a safe regimented life with her boyfriend Robert…..living by her lists. In a job that she’s ‘ok’ with but really wanting to pursue her hobby of brewing beer! On one of her date nights her boyfriend proposes, and her ‘yes’ is accepted before she’s had a chance to really consider it….or even answer!!
Her brilliant, and slightly wild, sister is not impressed but after some honest conversations, and more than a few heated debates, she agrees to be her on team Jen and arranges an impromptu hen break, in Copenhagen. Jen’s struggling with not being in control and then falls in the canal trying to save her phone….and her many lists and spreadsheets! She’s fished out by a gorgeous, topless man and they end up spending a lovely evening chatting, eating and drinking beer!
After returning home, wedding plans are in full swing but she can’t get her new friend out of her head…..she needs to make a decision! She’s set on marrying Robert….safe and dependable with a ‘plan’ for them for the future….but is it her plan? Is it what she really wants? And ultimately what will she decide?!
I loved this story, and the characters! Jen is brilliant, if a little frustrating to begin with. Her sister is brilliant – you’d have a brilliant night out with her! And Jen’s friends are brilliant and supportive. Robert is…..pretty boring and Yakob is amazing! At times I wanted to kick Jen, but completely routed for her the whole way through!
Pernille has done an excellent job! I felt like I was there with them all the time; like I was a silent friend who was shouting at her and nudging her but not being heard! If you love a rom com then this is for you, and if you’re planning a holiday….laying on a sun lounger with a book then this would be perfect! Highly recommended by me! I look forward to reading more from Pernille.
