Product Description

Nina Redmond is a librarian with a gift for finding the perfect book for her readers. But can she write her own happy-ever-after? In this valentine to readers, librarians, and book-lovers the world over, the New York Times-bestselling author of Little Beach Street Bakery returns with a funny, moving new novel for fans of Nina George’s The Little Paris Bookshop.

 

Nina 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.

5Charmed, As Usual
By Book Babe
Love me some Jenny! Read through this in just a few short days! I have read much of her stuff and can honestly say that she has just improved as a writer. Her earlier stuff is good, but a little longer to devout time to. But all her new stuff, Sweet Shop and Chocolate Shop and all that good English charm stuff is addicting. This one was great because it centers around one of my favs: BOOKS! A dream come true story. Colgan is a must have to my library!

5A book about books is lovely.
By Barbara
I'm not at all a romance reader and was surprised when this took that turn. I was hooked by the author's version of a foreword, which described me perfectly. Then the main character leaves the city for Scotland countryside to open a mobile book shop. A dream come true for me and I loved all the references to books and stories and what they can mean to us. The romance was predictable, yet the story kept me interested. Lovely, light reading that I really enjoyed.
