Book Review: The Hygge Holiday By Rosie Blake


It’s autumn in Yulethorpe and everyone is gloomy. It’s cold, drizzly and the skies are permagrey. The last shop on the high street – an adorable little toy shop – has just shut its doors. Everything is going wrong for Yulethorpe this autumn. Until Clara Kristensen arrives.

Clara is on holiday but she can see the potential in the pretty town, so she rolls up her sleeves and sets to work. Things are looking up until Joe comes to Yulethorpe to find out exactly what is going on with his mother’s shop. Joe is Very Busy and Important in the City and very sure that Clara is up to no good. Surely no one would work this hard just for the fun of it?

Can a man who answers emails at 3 a. m. learn to appreciate the slower, happier, hygge things in life – naps, candles, good friends and maybe even falling in love?


Cute cosy novel! 🍫 ☕️

Clara is the main character who enters this small town village and takes over and improves a little toy store.

Joe, well I did not like him. He’s full of paranoia and was constantly rude and suspicious of Clara’s intentions. To some extent I can understand, but overall his entire attitude was not needed. Clara was only making things more cosy to make Joe relax. But she did not like the lack of control she had over him either. Both characters have their advantages and disadvantages which was written well and was put together. The other side characters such as Gavin and Lauren were very colourful as well.

Overall it was a very cosy read (whatever time of year you read this).

4/5 Stars
