”A warm Feel-good novel - like a movie by Nora Ephron." - Damernas värld, Magazine


"Sorrow that turns to joy. A really great Christmas feel-good should have a mix of spiraling love with the same red color as Santa and also a tearing darkness. The same way that Emma does good deeds to count down to the days until Christmas while trying to forget her guilt and sorrow." - Tara Magazine


Reviews on Jenny Fagerlund previous book:


Dream’s Road is a well-written and captivating novel that really moved me. I catch myself thinking about how everything went down for the main character Rebecka every once in a while. It’s a perfect book for those who wants to be inspired to follow your heart and dreams. Once you start reading it’s hard to put the book down. I truly hope there will be a second book soon!

At first I didn’t think this would be a book for me, but WOW was I wrong - I really liked it and it caused a lot of feelings to come up to the surface. The book made me happy, it made my stomach turn, it made me mad and annoyed at the same time that it was so exciting that I just had to continue reading. I love books like this that invites me into the storytelling. A major thanks to Jenny for giving me the opportunity to read this goldpiece. 5 out of 5

"Jenny Fagerlund has written a wonderful story whose writing style immediately inspired me... Every wife and mother who is employed will find a little guide in this book, because we all know how it is to be torn between family and work, and the author manages to reflect that with her writing, without raising the warning finger... A great summer romance, which will remain long in my heart" 5/5
