How to Find Love in a Bookshop | Veronica Henry
The enchanting story of a bookshop, its grieving owner, a supportive literary community, and the extraordinary power of books to heal the heart Nightingale Books, nestled on the main street in an idyllic little village, is a dream come true for book loversa cozy haven and welcoming getaway for the literary-minded locals. But owner Emilia Nightingale is struggling to keep the shop open after her beloved fathers death, and the temptation to sell is getting stronger. The property developers are circling, yet Emilia's loyal customers have become like family, and she can't imagine breaking the promise she made to her father to keep the store alive. There's Sarah, owner of the stately Peasebrook Manor, who has used the bookshop as an escape in the past few years, but it now seems theres a very specific reason for all those frequent visits. Next is roguish Jackson, who, after making a complete mess of his marriage, now looks to Emilia for advice on books for the son he misses so much. And the forever shy Thomasina, who runs a pop-up restaurant for two in her tiny cottageshe has a crush on a man she met in the cookbook section, but can hardly dream of working up the courage to admit her true feelings. Enter the world of Nightingale Books for a serving of romance, long-held secrets, and unexpected hopes for the futureand not just within the pages on the shelves. How to Find Love in a Bookshop is the delightful story of Emilia, the unforgettable cast of customers whose lives she has touched, and the books they all cherish.

2.5 ⭐️ for my March #doublespin…this was cute, some Love, Actually vibes. I felt there were a few too many characters to keep track of. 🤷🏻‍♀️

I loved this beautiful, gentle story. It‘s an easy read, in the best sense. A beautiful setting, relatable characters, and various plot lines that all come together in the bookshop. It was just the book I needed to read.

I finished the book I had just started when my #swoonathon swap package came, so I‘m just now starting this, and realized I had missed this oh, so appropriate bookmark! Thanks again, @MoonWitch94 😘

Thank you so much @MoonWitch94 for this incredibly generous #swoonathon box! I can‘t wait to read all of these. I love all the “goodies” and the candy made it to South Florida without melting. I hope you‘re applying self-care to yourself, too. Glad it finally made it, and I hope things are going better for you.

Thank you for the very generous #swoonathon swap package @Ddzmini ! All the Hawaiian items like the postcards and bookmarks make me want to go even more now! The other bookmarks are so pretty and delicate! I've never tried that Toblerone flavor and the books look interesting! @MidnightBookGirl @kimmypete1

You know those books where you finish and you‘re just sad because you want to stay with the characters, the setting, the story? This was one of those for me! I stumbled upon it in my local library while looking for books by an author with same last name, and I am so glad I did! It was just lovely.

As they came into Peasebrook, Marlowe stopped the car just on the hump of the bridge, and Emilia looked at Nightingale Books, the light from the windows still glowing inside, the roof already covered in white, and in her mind she said Merry Christmas, Dad, and then the car rumbled down the other side of the bridge and up the high street into the oncoming snow.

This was charming! I liked all the characters (except one or two side characters we're not supposed to like) and I was so in need of a book with multiple happy endings so this really filled the bill!

EvieBee I adore this book. So uplifting! 7mo

Another book chosen for a book challenge, the How To category! I loved all of the characters and how they were woven around each other. I‘ve dreamed of owning a bookshop and this book made me want it even more. Book #60 in 2021

EvieBee I adored this when I first read it. And such a great ending, too! 7mo

This is a sweet, simple book. It can be a bit cheesy, but it will soothe your soul. Grab this book if you like romance novels, books about books, and/or need an easy, predictable read.

🏔This picture. Jackson Hole, WY. My Ultimate Happy Place.
🏔My Dad‘s favorite place on earth. The first real mountains I ever saw. It‘s hard to be there without him, but I feel him so strongly there. My Aunt lives there, too.
🏔 The background is Jackson Hole. I can‘t take credit for the photo, though. (No idea who took it).

2️⃣ My Mom for sure 📚
3️⃣ I get to be in charge of cultivating the talent, confidence, and passion my students have for theatre. I get to be my favorite teachers! Such a trip!

There were so many little stories all woven around this quaint little bookstore. I really enjoyed reading how the shop owner touched so many lives in community.

Finished! A really enjoyable book. It‘s not literary fiction and it doesn‘t need to be. The strands were perhaps a bit *too* neatly wrapped up in the end, and the Alice strand was . . . 🤔, but all in all it was just what I needed. Now I need to choose to finish the Peter May (love his books) or pick another from one of my stacks. Maybe the Wallis.

Still really enjoying this book. Many threads, and while I‘m reasonably sure we‘ll have a happy ending, the characters are appealing and the setting is lovely. A bookshop in the Cotswolds? I mean. Having a cup of tea and watching some classic tennis. Vamos Rafa! #QuarantineReads

A book about bookshops. How could I NOT read it?!??? I started it today; on page 70 already. I took a break as I didn‘t want to read it *too* quickly. It‘s lovely so far.

An enjoyable read about:
🔹books
🔹saving a bookstore
🔹a community of book lovers
🔹the bonds a shared love of books creates

Emilia wants to save her father‘s bookshop, but it‘s hemorrhaging money. Friends, customers, and the town pull together to save the store. A loving tribute to the power of books and a shared love of reading. There‘s a book for everyone, you just have to find it.

Emilia inherits her father‘s bookstore after his death and struggles to deal with her grief while keeping the bookstore open. It becomes the heart of the community and everyone who meets there gets a happy ending.

If you enjoy books about books/bookstores, check out this little gem. Utterly sweet and charming.

The first 2 chapters drew me in and I loved the story. There were about 6 character POV told and my favorite character was Julius. This is a nice light read.
