MY REVIEW OF “THE COPENHAGEN AFFAIR” by AMULYA MALLADI
Kudos to  Amulya Malladi, author of “The Copenhagen Affair” for the gorgeous vivid descriptions of the breathtaking landscapes, museums, restaurants, and scenery in Copenhagen. I wish a could book a flight and head there now. The genres for the novel are Fiction and Women’s Fiction.
The author describes her characters as complicated and complex, and colorful. Sanya has always been the perfect daughter, mother and wife, as well as highly efficient, but not recognized for her achievements at her office for many years. Finally, when she is told that she will be partner after too many years, Sanya has a nervous breakdown. Harry, her husband decides to take Sanya to Copenhagen while he is negotiating a major business deal. Harry feels the change of scenery will do Sanya good.
Sanya is most comfortable lying under her blankets, but slowly emerges and meets some colorful characters in Copenhagen.  Sanya seems to be attracted to Anders Ravn, the man who owns the company her husband  wants to acquire. There is something dark and flawed in him that intrigues her.  Sanya calls herself “the old Sanya” and “the new Sanya” after her breakdown.
I appreciate that the author writes about important subjects such as depression, marriage, family, love, betrayal , loyalty, friendship and hope.   Sanya questions herself and her role and her husband’s role in their marriage. This is a story of finding oneself and having the courage to break through the darkness.
I enjoyed this emotional, and thought-provoking story and would highly recommend it. I received an Advanced Reading Copy for my honest review. I look forward to reading more of Amulya Malladi’s novels.

4.03  ·  Rating details ·  29 Ratings  ·  22 Reviews
Set in the capital city of the world’s happiest country, a comedy of manners about depression, the pressures of marriage, and the possibility of falling in love again, from the bestselling author of A House for Happy Mothers.

Sanya was always the perfect wife, but after a breakdown at her office, it’s her husband Harry’s turn to step up. His proposal? A temporary move to Copenhagen, Denmark’s capital city. He needs to be there to close a business deal and figures the change of scenery will do her good. Soon Sanya goes from hiding under her duvet to hiding in plain sight—a dark-skinned Indian American in a city of blondes.

Within Copenhagen’s glamorous high society, one man stands out—not only because of his intriguing scar but because he seesSanya in a way Harry hasn’t for years. Anders Ravn owns the company Harry wants to acquire, and soon Sanya begins to fall for him. As allegations of white-collar crime arise, she learns of Harry’s infidelity, and having an affair with Anders seems ever more tempting. Surrounded by old money, smoked fish on dark breads, and way too many bicycles, Sanya slowly moves from breakdown to breakthrough, but where will she end up—and with whom? (less)
