Escape to the Scottish Highlands where a tiny bookshop perches on the edge of a loch
Zoe is a single mother, sinking beneath the waves trying to cope by herself in London. Hari, her gorgeous little boy is perfect in every way – except for the fact that he just doesn’t speak, at all. When her landlord raises the rent on her flat, Zoe doesn’t know where to turn.
Then Hari’s aunt suggests Zoe could move to Scotland to help run a bookshop. Going from the lonely city to a small village in the Highlands could be the change Zoe and Hari desperately need.
Faced with an unwelcoming boss, a moody, distant bookseller named Ramsay Urquart, and a band of unruly children, Zoe wonders if she’s made the right decision. But Hari has found his very first real friend, and no one could resist the beauty of the loch glinting in the summer sun. If only Ramsay would just be a little more approachable…
I always find with a Jenny Colgan book that they are pure escapism. All her books tackle relatable issues but they are written sensitively and you don’t feel as though you are alone. I loved how this story came together and in a sense to me came alive. I felt as though I wanted to be there in the thick of it to help Zoe out. Jenny Colgan’s books just keep getting better and better.
