When radio host Lucy Fairweather gets suspended after her drunken exploits are manipulated in a video that goes viral, her friend Skye offers her a trip to Finland to help her brother in law Tommi with his new resort Wild Zone.
❤️ What I liked about Meet Me Under the Northern Lights by Emily Kerr
❄️ The setting. Snow, log cabins, huskies, northern lights… is there anything more perfect in the lead up to Christmas? I confess Northern Europe has been on my To-Go list for a long time now, and this book made me want to go there even more!
👭 Friendship. Skye may be too good to be true, but she is always there for Lucy, especially when she is vulnerable and needs it the most.
💌 Not just romance. This book is not all about love and friendship, no. The author touches on some serious topics, like sexism, mental health and addiction.
I wasn’t so sure about
The characters. Don’t get me wrong, all the characters are likeable, but I think they are stereotyped. Skye is the perfect best friend, Tom is the handsome lone-wolf, Lucy’s producer is mean and sexist. I just think they are all a bit one-dimensional.
To the score
⭐⭐⭐ 3/5 A cosy and easy to read wintery romance. One word of warning, don’t read it with your phone or laptop too close to you: this book can cause an uncontrollable need to buy a flight to Finland! As always, thank you #netgalley and #onemorechapterhc.
