‘You sashay right up to the sexiest, best-looking shoes in the store and say, “you! Come here!” - And that’s exactly what you should be doing with guys! Start dating like you shop!’

This is the sage advice Lovisa gets from her loyal friends when she — once again — complains that her relationship with Adrian has stalled. Adrian being the only reason she even shows up for work. Besides him, there’s the grumpy staff manager, Lukas, an even grumpier store manager.

Lovisa is stuck in a rut and desperate for a change. But when you’re nearing thirty and suspect you have even less talent than Kim Kardashian, it’s easier said than done. And then, there’s Olivia, the big sister that Lovisa has always been so close to, but who now seems to increasingly disappear into her shell; no matter what Lovisa does, she just can’t seem to get to her.

For so long, exactly nothing happened in Lovisa’s life. But, like waiting for the bus, everything seems to happen all at once, and Lovisa is about to find out what really is her perfect fit.

HER PERFECT FIT is laugh-out-loud-funny and doesn’t shy away from the darker aspects of life; a pitch-perfect take on life for the urban twenty-something woman today. And then there’s the love story: a happy ending to rival the well-loved rom-coms of our age, drawing comparisons to Nora Ephron and Dolly Alderton.

‘Books that claim to be funny are not usually my cup of tea — but THIS ONE! I laughed out loud several times. Lovisa is the loveliest character in forever and a day,’ — Mattias Edvardsson, author of A Nearly Normal Family

‘Nuanced chicklit about real people…[I] can’t stop laughing.’ — Barometern

‘I bow down to this very funny and profound chicklit. I can only say one thing: buy it now, or give it to a really bored person or someone in need of immediate guidance.’ — Göteborgs-Posten
