Greetings from Båstad (Med hälsning från Båstad)
The day has finally arrived. Linda is leaving her conspiring colleagues behind and moving to London to start a new job at one of Europe's largest lifestyle magazines. She has worked hard to reach this point in her career and even her otherwise hard to impress mother admits to being proud of her. When the job offer is suddenly pulled away at the last minute Linda finds herself without a job in both London and Stockholm. She panics completely and doesn’t tell anyone about what happened, instead she just pretends to move. Only her boyfriend Frank and her best friend Helena gets to know the truth. But where will she go? A small corner of a birthday card turns out to be her savior. Her aunt in Båstad! Alright, it might not be an aunt that she knows and one that her mother stopped communicating with 25 years ago, but on the other hand who would ever think to look for her there? The plan is spotless.
In Båstad the yearly Tennis championship weeks are soon at their doorstep and Linda is dragged into the festivities. But the more she gets to know her aunt and her new found friends she senses that something isn’t what it seems. Why did her mother stop talking to her aunt? And why doesn’t Frank ever call?
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

"This book fascinated me from the first page so that I could not put it away and read without a break to the end..." 5/5
"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
