But that all comes to a grinding halt when she meets his wife Adele.
Beautiful, elegant and sweet, Louise’s new friend seems perfect in every way. As she becomes obsessed by this flawless couple, entangled in the intricate web of their marriage, they each, in turn, reach out to her. But only when she gets to know them both does she begin to see the cracks. Is David really the man she thought she knew?

Lagom is a way of living that promotes harmony. It celebrates fairness, moderation and being satisfied with and taking proper care of what you’ve got, including your well-being, relationships, and possessions. It’s not about having too little or too much but about fully inviting contentment into our lives through making optimal decisions.
Who better than Lola A. Akerstrom to be your lagom guide? Sweden-based Akerstrom is an award-winning writer and photographer, and she offers us a unique vantage point when it comes to adopting elements of a lagom lifestyle.
Full of insights and beautiful photographs taken by Akerstrom herself, this authentic book will help you make small, simple changes to your everyday life - whether it’s your diet, lifestyle, money, work or your home - so you can have a more balanced way of living filled with contentment.
