How to find love in a bookshop. By Veronica Henry.
Emilia has just returned to her idyllic Cotswold hometown to rescue the family business. Nightingale Books is a dream come true for book-lovers, but the best stories aren’t just within the pages of the books she sells -Emilia’s customers have their own tales to tell.
There’s the lady of the manor who is hiding a secret close to her heart; the single dad looking for books to share with his son but who isn’t quite what he seems; and the desperately shy chef trying to find the courage to talk to her crush.
As for Emilia’s story can she keep the promise she made to her father and save Nightingale Books?
I chose this book because as well as an appealing cover it’s about a book shop, and book shops are my happy place. I can spend many a contented hour browsing through all of the books.
How to find love in a book shop is a lovely romantic tale, the plot follows a number of characters who are not really happy with their lives as they are. Their stories are so well woven together that it jumps from one to another seamlessly.
I am always completely honest in reviewing a book, so I will say that this book is, in my opinion, quite predictable, but in this case that’s not a bad thing, because it’s one of those books that are perfect for curling up with, it’s comforting, you know where you are with it.
It’s a book I would pick up again, on perhaps, a cold gloomy evening when I need something uplifting and heartwarming.
I’m giving How to find love in a bookshop four out of five stars because it’s charming and uplifting, I might have given it five if it had a less predictable ending. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
