How to Find Love in a Bookshop - Veronica Henry,Julia Barrie,Orion Publishing Group

When her beloved father dies, Emilia Nightingale inherits Nightingale Books, a much loved bookshop, nestled in the Cotswold town of Peasebrook. There she makes new friends, unwittingly helping them with more than book choices. But when a situation arises that threatens the bookshop, can Emilia keep her promise to her dying father, and keep Nightingale Books open?

 

The thing I find about bookshops is how inviting they are. There is the anticipation of finding a new book to fall in love with, of new worlds to explore and often times the shop seems to radiate the comfort and warmth the books themselves can bring. Nightingale Books sounds like the ideal place to lose a few hours, wandering the shops and browsing the shelves, chatting to like-minded book lovers. Lots of people dream of owning their own book shop, I’m one of them, and to my minds eye, Nightingale Books is how I’d picture my bookshop.

 

The story itself is warm and comforting, easy to get wrapped up in. It’s the kind of book to curl up with on a rainy winter evening, or to read whilst lying in the sun. It is filled with a cast of characters that all add layers to the story. Emilia is a lovely character, depicted as kind, considerate and understandably conflicted by her desire to keep the bookshop and the struggle she finds herself in. Julius, Emilia’s father is also a wonderful character, depicted as he is in a few explanatory chapters and through the memory of the other characters. The bookshop itself is a character, and rightly so. It is the linchpin, where the inhabitants of Peasebrook meet, chat and discover new books, and perhaps new people, to fall in love with. There are some characters I would have liked to find out more about as there felt the potential to find out more about them for example Thomasina, the excruciatingly shy chef and Marlowe, the violinist, friend of Julius whose appearances seemed to just scratch the surface of his character.

 

There were parts of the story that could be considered predictable, the trial and tribulation that would lead to the conclusion but I found comfort in those, enjoying the journey the story took me on. The story was told with the right pace, with a variety of different characters to provide entertainment and lots of separate story strands that were brought together by the bookshop.

 

This book exudes the sentiments of a good bookshop I mentioned above, it is warm, inviting and fun. It is a story about love, literature and the celebration of stories and what’s not to love about that?

 

This is the first book by Veronica Henry I have read but I shall certainly be reading more from her in the future.

We Just Clicked: Can you ever find true love in the digital age? - Sophie Childs

#WeJustClicked  Available 2/4/16  4 Stars @SoVainBooks Sophie Childs

This was such a fun book to read. Absolutely nothing but fiction, but fun and entertaining. The mother in here is a hoot, so is the girlfriend especially when she's talking about all the pictures she gets from the love interests on the dating site. I'm sitting here laughing about it as I'm typing the review.

If your interested in just kicking back and laughing and being entertained, this book will do it for you.

Thanks So Vain Books for approving my request and Net Galley for providing the free e-galley in exchange for an honest review.

5 Stars:

One my favourite books I've ever read!

Tyson is the typical Aussie football (and prefect book boyfriend). While taking a break he meets a crying Katie his world is upended and he doesn't even shy away from the tears that stream down her face.

Despite reservations and distance, Tyson pursues Katie with the same vigour and persistence that have made him the hottest thing in football.

Tyson's relationship with his grandmother is adorable and just makes him even a little more perfect, if that is at all possible

The perfect summer beach read for those wanting a little bit of romantic innocence

Synopsis

Can their new love survive the scrutiny of the public eye? 

After his father’s heart attack, Australian Football League player Tyson Gaspaldi takes his parents on holiday to a small place at the New South Wales coast. 

One morning, following a surfing session, he comes across a crying woman on the beach. Everything about her intrigues him, and he can’t walk away. She’s not only sexy and humble, but, as he soon finds out, vulnerable as well. 

It’s only been a few months since Katie Cassidy lost her sister in a car accident. 

Still overwhelmed by the loss, a chance encounter on the beach with an attractive stranger awakens unexpected emotions inside her. She’s instantly drawn to his caring nature, but also his looks. 

However, Tyson’s past quickly catches up with them, causing Katie’s childhood demons to return, and the road to romance becomes anything but smooth.


My Thoughts - Story
What a cute and sweet read that I devoured in a matter of hours! I wasn’t just interested in the storyline but also the descriptions of Australia, and now I want to go on a trip there to see the sites myself.

 

 

Ms. Blobel did a wonderful job of developing her characters but…sorry…Katie started to irritate me with her jumping to conclusions and not trusting Tyson.

 

Other than that…I thoroughly enjoyed this story and got so wrapped up in the romance!
