Publisher's Summary

Where happy ever after is only a page away...A delightful new series set in a quaint old bookshop, for fans of Lucy Diamond and Jenny Colgan. Once upon a time in a crumbling London bookshop, Posy Morland spent her life lost in the pages of her favourite romantic novels. So when Bookend's eccentric owner, Lavinia, dies and leaves the shop to Posy, she must put down her books and join the real world. Because Posy hasn't just inherited an ailing business, but also the unwelcome attentions of Lavinia's grandson, Sebastian, AKA The Rudest Man In London™.

Posy has a cunning plan and six months to transform Bookends into the bookshop of her dreams - if only Sebastian would leave her alone to get on with it. As Posy and her friends fight to save their beloved bookshop, Posy's drawn into a battle of wills with Sebastian, about whom she's started to have some rather feverish fantasies...Like her favourite romantic heroines, will she get her happy ever after too?

IRRITATING

This is one of the very few Audible books that I have not finished.
Hardly any story line(s). The touching/looking at breasts was constantly thrown in it seemed, without any relevance.
the narrator has a pleasant voice and is doing ok.

Dreadful

The whole thing was like listening to a cat on a hot tin roof with totally unconvincing plot. Sorry, I did not enjoy this story at all.

Listened to it at every spare moment!

Might not be for everyone as the plot is not too deep but I really enjoyed this. Parts had me laughing out loud and totally emotional. Loved it. Just what I needed.
