'What's the weather going to be like?' she asks Kirsten hopefully, scrolling her cursor over the budget airlines webpage. 'Terrible,' Kirsten replies, 'London is positively Mediterranean by comparison, and of course it's November so it'll be dark seventeen hours a day. But no one goes to Denmark to get a tan. You need a change of scene and to blow away the cobwebs, and trust me, Skagen will do that. Besides, the summerhouse is cosy whatever the weather, and you never know who else will be around.'

The logic appears simple. The Danes are happy. The Danes engage in hygge. Therefore hygge makes them happy. If we 'do' hygge then we'll also be happy. However the Danes also happen to have one of the highest rates of mental illness in Europe. WTF? This book will tell you all you need to know about hygge. But, If you're looking for a hygge self-help book, this book will be no help at all. If you have no concept of what a candle is and are looking for a candle user guide, then you've come to the wrong place. That said, Hygge. Huh? still manages to pack in an impressive 26 separate mentions of the word 'candle'. It's an absolute must for the candle fan in your household! There are also a couple of pathetically rudimentary recipes thrown in for good measure. It's quite simply a book for everyone! Hygge. Huh? is the most important book about hygge you will ever read. Probably.

But she can't. And the damage is done. She's hoping that a summer of free room and board working with her aunt at the Willow Inn will help her forget. Except there's a problem: the resident handyman is none other than Levi Andrews. The handsome quarterback was once her friend-and maybe more-until everything changed in a life-shattering instant. She was hoping to avoid him, possibly forever. Now he's right down the hall and stirring up feelings Pixie thought she'd long buried . . . Levi can't believe he's living with the one person who holds all his painful memories. More than anything he wants to make things right, but a simple "sorry" won't suffice-not when the tragedy that scarred them was his fault.

Yet even though she's so close, Pixie's heart seems more unreachable than ever. Seeing those stunning green eyes again has made one thing perfectly clear-he can't live without her. (70,000 words)
