One Summer in Paris By Sarah Morgan

One Summer in Paris By Sarah Morgan

paris

One charming bookshop, two unlikely friends, and a summer in Paris that will change their lives forever…

Grace can’t believe it when her husband of twenty-five years announces he doesn’t want to join her on their anniversary trip to Paris – instead, he wants a divorce. Reeling from the shock, Grace makes the bold decision to go on this holiday of a lifetime alone.

Audrey leaves behind heartache of her own when she arrives in Paris. A job in a bookshop is her ticket to freedom, but with no knowledge of the French language, her summer adventure seems doomed to fail. Until she meets Grace, and everything changes…

Living in neighbouring apartments above the bookshop, Grace and Audrey form an unlikely friendship. They came to Paris to find themselves, but finding each other might be the best thing that’s ever happened to them.

My Thoughts:

I could not wait to dive straight into the latest book by Sarah Morgan, her books just seem to keep getting better and better. The characters are always relatable characters so you will always find something in common with one of them. I love the setting in Paris you really feel as though you are there. I just didn’t want the story to end.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.

The Bookshop Detective By Jan Ellis

The Bookshop Detective By Jan Ellis

When a ghost ship is spotted on the horizon one spring evening, bookseller Eleanor Mace decides to investigate the myths and legends of Combemouth, the Devon seaside town where she runs The Reading Room.

As Eleanor digs deeper into the town s history, she becomes intrigued by a Victorian crime report that seems to have unexpected links to the present day. A celebrity book launch, an exploding dress and some salsa-dancing pensioners make this a mystery with a difference.

My Thoughts:

After reading Jan’s previous novel A Summer of Surprises I was looking forward to catching up with Eleanor and finding out what is happening with her now. I loved getting back to the bookshop it is my favourite place and this one has a beautiful setting next to the sea what more could you want? The town’s people and the mystery really had me gripped and I couldn’t put it down. Another little treasure from a fabulously talented author.

Everyone has a story . . . but will they get the happy ending they deserve?

Emilia has just returned to her idyllic Cotswold hometown to rescue the family business. Nightingale Books is a dream come true for book-lovers, but the best stories aren’t just within the pages of the books she sells – Emilia’s customers have their own tales to tell.

There’s the lady of the manor who is hiding a secret close to her heart; the single dad looking for books to share with his son but who isn’t quite what he seems; and the desperately shy chef trying to find the courage to talk to her crush . . .

And as for Emilia’s story, can she keep the promise she made to her father and save Nightingale Books?

My Thoughts:

What a superb read. Veronica Henry is one of my favourite authors and when I saw this book out I knew I had to read it. You get to meet some interesting characters along the way in this book and learn a little about each one of them. This is a friendly and affectionately tale of everyday life in the Cotswold Village of Peasbrook, I couldn’t put the book down it gripped me right from the start. Veronica Henry has written a brilliant book here and I think it has to be one of my favourites of hers.

The Little Bookshop of Lonely Hearts By Annie Darling

the lonley bookshop

Once upon a time in a crumbling bookshop, Posy Morland hid in the pages of 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 attentions of Lavinia’s grandson, Sebastian, AKA The Rudest Man In London™.

Posy has six months to transform Bookends into the shop of her dreams but as Posy and her friends fight to save the bookshop, she’s drawn into a battle of wills with Sebastian, about whom she’s started to have some rather feverish fantasies…

My Thoughts:

I was given a copy of this book for an honest review. This is a new series of books by Annie Darling set in a bookshop. I thought I was going to really enjoy this book but I didn’t as much as I would of liked to. I found it quite heavy going and a bit predictable. Some parts of this book became quite repetitive which I didn’t like. It is a light hearted read.

An Unexpected Affair By Jan Ellis

An Unexpected Affair By Jan Ellis

After her divorce, Eleanor decides it is time to begin again.
She leaves behind her busy London life, and moves to a quiet seaside town in Devon.

There she opens up a bookshop, The Reading Room, on the local highstreet – and makes a roaring success of it.

But can Eleanor make a success of her love life as well?

There is no shortage of men. But when Eleanor thinks back over her life and loves, she remembers a passionate love affair in France in her twenties. And when her sister suggests they take a trip down memory lane and holiday there, will Eleanor take her up on her offer – and if she does, will she discover what happened to her great love Christophe?

Does Eleanor’s heart belong in France?

Or is there something, or someone, she’s been missing in Devon?

My Thoughts:

This is Jan’s first novel and I really enjoyed it. I love the fact that your drawn straight away into Eleanor’s West Country Bookshop world, brimming to the rafters with some very exciting and interesting people. In this story you get drawn into Eleanor’s life which goes from past to present which I found easy to keep up with unlike in other novels where it can become confusing. There are some romantic parts in this book but also some humour. I love the way Jan writes with such passion and look forward to reading her books in the future.

I’ll Take New York By Miranda Dickenson

I’ll Take New York By Miranda Dickenson

Not out till the 4th December 2014

 

Have you ever given up on love?

When her boyfriend lets her down one time too many, Brooklyn bookstore owner Bea James makes a decision – never again! No more men, no more heartbreak, and no more pain.

Psychiatrist Jake Steinmann is making a new start too, leaving his broken marriage behind in San Francisco. From no on there’ll just be one love in his life: New York.

At a party Bea and Jake’s paths cross. United by being the only two singletons there, they make a pact: no more relationships….

But the city has other plans…

My Thoughts:

I loved this book, I have only ever read one of Miranda’s books before and quite liked it. I know it is predictable what is going to happen early on in this book but Miranda has written it well so that it didn’t really bother me.I think the main character Bea is lovely, i mean who wouldn’t fall for Jake he sounds utterly gorgeous and a decent kind of guy. I love the way Bea and her Gran write letters or emails to each other and that it is written in a different font, it somehow makes it extra special. Bit of a shame the plot was predictable but I totally loved it no matter. The cover is gorgeous too, it is a must if you like chick-lit.
