Nina Redmond is a literary matchmaker. Pairing a reader with that perfect book is her passion and also her job.

Or at least it was. Until yesterday, she was a librarian in the hectic city. But now the job she loved is no more. Determined to make a new life for herself, Nina moves to a sleepy village many miles away. There she buys a van and transforms it into a bookmobile a mobile bookshop that she drives from neighborhood to neighborhood, changing one life after another with the power of storytelling.

From helping her grumpy landlord deliver a lamb, to sharing picnics with a charming train conductor who serenades her with poetry, Nina discovers there s plenty of adventure, magic, and soul in a place that s beginning to feel like home a place where she just might be able to write her own happy ending.
