Ella runs Happily Ever After, a bookshop nestled in the cobbled streets of York.

She’s a wife, a mother and a successful novelist. But something is missing . . .

One day a strange girl comes into Ella’s shop. Bryony is shy and unsure, and Ella feels a strange connection to her.

With the help of one very special book – and a little touch of magic – can these women help each other find the fairy tale endings they’ve been searching for?

My Thoughts:

I was given a copy of this book for an honest review. I love the cover it is simple but pretty and makes you want to delve into the story. I liked the story about Ella and how she copes with being a wife and mother alongside trying to write her book. Then she meets Bryony and feels a connection with her, but what will happen? I found this a nice easy read and it gave me a warm glow inside.

The Little Shop of Happy Ever After By Jenny Colgan

The Little Shop of Happy Ever After By Jenny Colgan

Given a back-room computer job when the beloved Birmingham library she works in turns into a downsized retail complex, Nina misses her old role terribly – dealing with people, greeting her regulars, making sure everyone gets the right books for their needs.

Then a new business nobody else wants catches her eye: owning a tiny little bookshop bus up in the Scottish highlands. No computers. Shortages. Out all hours in the freezing cold; driving with a tiny stock of books… not to mention how the little community is going to take to her, particularly when she stalls the bus on a level crossing…

My Thoughts:

I bought this book as I am a big fan of Jenny Colgan and I also wanted to add it to my collection. I did find it hard to get into the story but once I did I loved it. The way Jenny writes is brilliant, she adds so much description and depth that you almost feel as though you are there amongst these fantastic characters. I loved Nina the main character, she seems to be able to pick a book for someone and know that they will like it. Lovely little story, I look forward to her next book.
