A beautifully written romantic blockbuster that transports you to the ski slopes of Switzerland with its unparalleled descriptions, with just a hint of romance, serendipity and believing in yourself and what will make you happy.
Oops – Mina’s rather public proposal to Simon goes wrong in the most public way and she is asked to take some leave from work, until ‘Smurfgate’ blows over! It leaves her wary with regards to romance, and uncertain of how much she really does love what she had previously deemed to be the perfect job.
Next thing you know, Mina is on her way to Switzerland, to spend some time with her Aunt, sharing a very nice train journey en route with Luke, her new travelling acquaintance.
Mina is planning a relaxing recuperative 2 week holiday in Switzerland, only to bump into Luke, who is also staying in her Aunt’s chalet (which, by the way, doesn’t seem to be particularly ‘little’. Mina then torments herself with a ‘should I shouldn’t I scenario’ with Luke; he almost seems too good to be true and she doesn’t want to get hurt again.
I won’t spoil the ending – whether Mina gets together with Luke, whether she uproots and leaves her less than perfect job – you will have to read #TheLittleSwissSkiChaletnto find out.
