Probably the Best Kiss in the World by Pernille Hughes

Today I am so excited to be sharing with you my review of this fantastic, romantic and fun read from Pernille Hughes as part of the blog tour. Thank you to Rachel's Random Resources for inviting me to take part and for my copy of the book in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. 

Book description
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…

My Review
Jen likes her life to be as planned as possible and Jen lives her life by her spreadsheets and apps. of which she has many. She likes her life this way and is not keen on any surprises along the way. Her life has been like the since the death of her parents and she became the guardian for her sister, Lydia. 
Jen's other passion in life is brewing her own real ales. She has a real knack for it and is often winning awards for her own signature blends. 
All this starts to change however as her boyfriend, Robert has big plans for them both when her proposes to Jen. His plans do not seem to include what Jen wants at all but is he the stability that Jen needs to complete her life.
Jen's friends decide to surprise her with a hen do to Copenhagen and its there that disaster strikes and Jen ends up being fished out of the canal there by a very handsome stranger. They spend the evening together, enjoying the sites of Copenhagen over a meal and there is definitely a spark between the two of them. This is something that Jen is determined to get out of her head as she is meant to to be marrying Robert. But is marrying him the best thing for Jen as he wants to make her change or should she follow her heart and see where her life will take her. This is definitely something she cannot decide by creating a spreadsheet. 

This is a fantastic read that really keeps you absorbed from the first page of to the last. 
I really liked the character of Jen. You do get a great understanding of why Jen feels she needs to keep her life so organised using spreadsheets and apps. She feels in full control of her life this way and is not keen to deviate from it at all. This is why Roberts surprise really confuses her especially when all her friends think he's "boring" and that she needs to live a little. I really like all of the Jen's friends and her sister Lydia. It's clear they all love and adore Jen and they only wants what's best for their friend.  Reading the book is obvious that her passion for brewing is what drives her and it is great to see her change and  develop as the story progresses.  Pernille obviously took plenty of time to research this part of the story line and her description of the real ales sound delicious. 
 I really enjoy the writing style of Pernille Hughes. its fun and really refreshing to read. I thoroughly enjoyed reading her debut novel Sweatpants at Tiffanies and was really looking forward to reading this and I was not disappointed.
