Christmas is approaching and the easygoing life in Hallavik is about to enter a new phase for Nina Becker and Johanna Seger.
One of them is now voluntarily divorced and happy to put her life as a married lady of leisure behind her. The other finds herself involuntarily co-habiting and is also told there her workplace will undergo a reorganisation process. Roles are reversed and the two women try to adapt to their new situation.
To celebrate her return to the little town on the west coast of Sweden, Nina decides to throw a glühwein party and a familiar face pops up when she least expects it and Nina doesn't know how to react. He is both pleasant and handsome, but Nina knows all about his secret.
Johanna can't seem to let go of her personal issues, which leads to her celebrating a little bit too much and ends up in an intimate situation with the wrong man.
December Heat is a charming and witty novel about life's ups and downs, and the sequel to Joyous Beauty, the first book in the Hallavik series.

"Couldn't stop reading. Just as delightful as the prequel." - Josefine Sandblom, author "Fantastic, lovely and funny. I give this 5 out of 5." Jennies boklista, Swedish blogger
Author Sara H. Olsson was born in 1979 and is now living with her family in Tångaberg on the west coast of Sweden.
Her entire professional world is linked to books as she is not only an author and literary editor at her firm Manushjälpen, but also running her own publishing house called Bokförlaget SOL.
I write feel-good novels with both humour and a touch of darkness. I want my readers to be able to recognise themselves in my stories and scenarios, and I love to give everyday events an amusing twist. My books are set in a small fictitious town of Hallavik on the west coast of Sweden. I can promise you plenty of clichés and stereotypes, which I hope you will adore just as much as I do!
My family and I live in the beautiful town of Varberg, situated on the west coast of Sweden. I own and run the fast-growing publishing house SOL that brings out entertaining, easy to read novels; perfect for a lazy day in the hammock. When I don't write I love to bake cakes and bread, or go for a brisk walk by the sea with an audio book in my headphones to keep me company.
