Since we visited the enchanted Croswald earlier, 
it only makes sense to visit the Cotswolds of England!


The enchanting story of a book shop, its grieving owner, a supportive literary community, and the extraordinary power of books to heal the heart

How to Find Love in a Bookshop cover

Synopsis:

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 book shop 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

 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.

Review:

what do you do when your dreams seem totally dashed? Why pick yourself up, thanks to friends you had no idea you had, and make NEW dreams come true! This is a lovely Sumemrtime read, full of  hope, love, forgiveness and dreams. You'll find yourself enchanted with all the characters, and feel like you are there at the bookshop itself. When tragedy strikes, you;ll catch your rbeath and scream "Noooo!", and when an unlikely discovery is made, you'll root for everyone involved! The characters will stay wil you long after you finish reading, making wish for a sequel, but knowing that one novel is enough-you don't want the magic ruined! Consider this book the magic book of the Summer for adults, and don't miss it!
