The Bookshop on the Corner

Summary: Nina Redmond 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.

 

Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

When Rhiannon at Ivory Owl Reviews sent me a link to this book in a message- with the question of “What do you think about this for the next Book Talk With R & T?” I didn’t hesitate to say “YES!” after reading the description and gazing at the cover. A literary matchmaker? Someone who gets utterly lost in books? YES. YES. YES. A thousand times YES!

Once I began reading, the pages just flew by. Nina was a treat. A little naive-ish at times, but I really enjoyed her character!

Things I Liked:

The cover. Naturally.

The setting. Reading how Jenny described the area, the food, etc- I could see it all. I like that!

Nina. Her growth as a character was wonderful.

 

Bottom line: Spend a day or 2 (or heck a week!) with The Bookshop on the Corner. You won’t be sorry!
