Publisher's Summary

The perfect recipe for hygge: make a hot chocolate, draw the curtains, snuggle under a blanket and read your way to happiness!

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?

This was the BEST book!!!!!

Enjoyed every minute!

The reader makes this charming book even more delightful. I could listen to her read forever.
Perfect book to listen to on a cozy fall weekend. I wanted to move to the village and become friends with them all!

Excessive profanity took the “Hygge’ out of this.

The cover and the name led me to believe this would be a lite, fun, little Christmas story but the excessive use of the F-bomb and other profanity took away my expectations. It could have been better with some editing. Sorry but no hygge here.

My favorite

The Hygge Holiday has brought me intense pleasure in the numerous times I've listened to the audible book. The soft, expressive voice of the narrator is a perfect companion to a story of wonder, optimism and creativity. My last listen will surely not be my last listen. Wish there were more like it. I'm on the lookout.

Sweet and predictable

An entertaining holiday read similar to a Hallmark movie with Hygge lifestyle tips. Enjoyable but I would have rather not have used a $16 credit on it.

Absolutely Wonderful

This book was absolutely the perfect holiday listen! It made me feel so cozy and happy the entire time and I already can’t wait to listen to it again. I highly recommend it! The characters are well developed and I felt as if I was right there along with them!

Loved it!

Great narration for this story. The development of the characters was well paced. The humor behind the travel to Spain was clever and laugh out loud -worthy. A slowly developing romance wrapped in a woman hungry for belonging. Hungry, but not desperate made the story so very sweet.

Perfect Crafting Companion!

Before The Hygge Holiday, I didn't know I needed Crafting Companion to be an Audible category. This book is the perfect listen while crafting or decorating solo, with Clara being the inobtrusive friend who lets you make all the creative decisions while also being brilliant herself at decorating. Made a fun activity even more enjoyable!

Loved the Sweet, Cozy Tale

Loved the simplicity of this book and how it served as a reminder to slow down and "smell the roses" so to speak. Loved it! Will no doubt listen to it again. Narrator did a beautiful job. Enjoyed how the accent made it all the more hygge.

Very average

Very predictable and bland story with an annoying bird character that did nothing but irritate me. I’m usually not so negative and in fact I love hygge but just not this book.

A good story and performance

Enjoyed this the first time round in my kindle library.
A nice feel good story with engaging characters that you can actually care what happens to.
This audiobook version at a very good price as a kindle offer was a good revisit to the story and very well read by Rosie Jones.

Dull

This is basically a Hallmark movie. Watery plot with dull, uninspired characters in implausible scenarios. I found my mind wandering, thinking about work, kids, shopping lists etc etc and needing to backtrack upon realising that I'd zoned out for the last 5 minutes or so.
This is a bottom of the barrel book for me.
Rosie Jones' narration was so-so.
