From the author of the bestselling novel, The Note, comes this beautiful, romantic tale of finding love in the most unexpected places.
Under the midnight sun of Arctic Norway, Cecilie Wiig goes online and stumbles across Hector Herrera in a band fan forum. They start chatting and soon realise they might be more than kindred spirits. But there are two big problems: Hector lives 8,909km away in Mexico. And he's about to get married.
Can Cecilie, who's anchored to two jobs she loves in the library and a cafe full of colourful characters in the town in which she grew up, overcome the hurdles of having fallen for someone she's never met? Will Hector escape his turbulent past and the temptations of his hectic hedonistic life and make a leap of faith to change the path he's on?
Zoe Folbigg's latest novel is a story of two people, living two very different lives, and whether they can cross a gulf, ocean, sea and fjord to give their love a chance.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Whisk yourself off to your fantasy winter (and summer) destinations, with a light and lovely long-distance hook-up. Brit writer Zoe Folbigg takes on the significant culture divides of Norwegian and Mexican life by uniting Cecilie and Hector in a band chatroom and watching as they fall in love despite differing lifestyles and very divergent romantic set-ups. As Hector wonders whether he can really give up on his impending wedding, and Cecilie asks the age-old question on whether it’s a good idea to ditch a job (or in her case, two jobs) you love for a man, the pair come together with heart-warming consequences.
Customer ReviewsSee All
I’ve never written a review for any book, but I just loved this. Her writing style, the sometimes stark way she communicates is just so beautiful. She says it all so perfectly, sometimes without actually saying it at all. I liked The Note a lot, but this is on a different level. Gorgeous book, one I’m gutted to have finished.
Can I give it ‘zero’?
The biggest load of twaddle I have had the misfortune to read in at least a week. If I had paid for it I would have taken it back to the bookshop!
I can’t wait for more by this author- her writing style is second to none ✨
