Hello Bookworms, and welcome to another post from The Paperback Princess! I hope you all had a wonderful week! I am very sorry that this post is a day late. I’ve been having a rough time, but I promise I am here to stay! Today I will be doing a book review of a novel I just recently finished. So let’s get right into it!
Genre: Fiction, Romance
Number of Pages: 352
My Rating : 10/10
“There’s a book for everyone, even if they don’t think there is. A book that reaches in and grabs your soul.”
Set in Peasebrook, England this novel is full of love, books, a lovely set of characters from the employees to the loyal customers of Nightingale Books, and so much more. To me this book really spoke to me. It made me want to open my own little bookshop and have the magic that brings books and people together. If you love books and bookstores, I would definitely recommend reading this novel. I don’t think you’ll regret it.
Here is the synopsis from Goodreads: The enchanting story of a bookshop, its grieving owner, a supportive literary community, and the extraordinary power of books to heal the heart.
Nightingale Books, nestled on the main street in an idyllic little village, is a dream come true for book lovers–a cozy haven and welcoming getaway for the literary-minded locals. But owner Emilia Nightingale is struggling to keep the shop open after her beloved father’s death, and the temptation to sell is getting stronger. The property developers are circling, yet Emilia’s loyal customers have become like family, and she can’t imagine breaking the promise she made to her father to keep the store alive.
There’s Sarah, owner of the stately Peasebrook Manor, who has used the bookshop as an escape in the past few years, but it now seems there’s a very specific reason for all those frequent visits. Next is roguish Jackson, who, after making a complete mess of his marriage, now looks to Emilia for advice on books for the son he misses so much. And the forever shy Thomasina, who runs a pop-up restaurant for two in her tiny cottage–she has a crush on a man she met in the cookbook section, but can hardly dream of working up the courage to admit her true feelings.
Enter the world of Nightingale Books for a serving of romance, long-held secrets, and unexpected hopes for the future–and not just within the pages on the shelves. How to Find Love in a Bookshop is the delightful story of Emilia, the unforgettable cast of customers whose lives she has touched, and the books they all cherish.
And that’s it for this post! Seriously, go read that novel. It’s the best. Let me know in the comments what some of your favorite books are! I’d love to hear from you all 🙂 Join me next week for another post from the Paperback Princess! Happy Reading, Bookworms!
