The title of the book intrigued me. However after reading the story it wasn't quite right. No matter. The book was a love affair on the joy and passion for books and how they can sometimes change everything .
It has been a while since I've had an opportunity to read a book. The description of this one peaked my interest. I was not disappointed. I absolutely loved this book. I had a hard time putting it down. I loved the choices Nina was faced with and I was on the fence about how they would turn out. I adored Nina's innocent character. I found myself rooting for her and also falling in love with everyone that she fell in love with. This book would appeal to romance readers and booklovers.
I am a miracle worker. Doing what I can to choose love over fear.
Like homemade candy:Unique. The end came when we felt in the middle. Need the next!
Hi all. I'm in my 50's (that's relevant, i think), and I favor fiction. I like the british sensibility, and was introduced to the Forsyte Saga through audible ... loved it! I happen to also like Chinese writers, but they are not well represented yet at audible. Looking to follow readers with similar tastes ...
I like Jenny Colgan's writing style, and that her stories take place outside of London, in interesting settings with local flavor. This one takes place in Scotland, and was charming and genuine, and a bit more mature than her previous. Well worth an Audible credit.
At the beaches at last
I did like listening to British accents, but that's about it. You can predict the outcome of the 37 chapters as early as chapter 6.
Portrays book worms as nerdy losers, too, along with other stereotypes such as strong silent men troubled by their pasts, but with kind hearts
Like THE LTTLE PARIS BOOKSHOP, a wonderful story. A balm for the bibliophile's soul set in the wild, beautiful countryside of Scotland. Sorry to finish it.
I am a librarian working as a state worker by day and a FB stalker at night. I like thrillers, YA and, and just about anything in between.
This book would not rank in my Top 10, but it is a lovely story and I am so glad I listened in.
I loved hearing all about the books, how like me she tries to find the perfect book for everyone. It was nice to read about someone with a passion for books like myself. I could relate to that part. I also loved, without giving too much away, the lover's tree.
My favorite scene was when they found the lover's tree. What a joyful surprise!
I think when we hit the hot bit, I was like, Whoa! Jenny! You are going there! Loved it! What a pleasant surprise.
A delightful beach read.
