Love at First Book
Love at First Book | Jenn McKinlay
8 posts | 4 read | 4 to read
When a librarian moves to a quaint Irish village where her favorite novelist lives, the last thing she expects is to fall for the author's prickly son... until their story becomes one for the books, from the New York Times bestselling author of Summer Reading. Emily Allen, a librarian on Martha's Vineyard, has always dreamed of a life of travel and adventure. So when her favorite author, Siobhan Riordan, offers her a job in the Emerald Isle, Emily jumps at the opportunity. After all, Siobhan's novels got Em through some of the darkest days of her existence. Helping Siobhan write the final book in her acclaimed series--after a ten-year hiatus due to a scorching case of writer's block--is a dream come true for Emily. If only she didn't have to deal with Siobhan's son, Kieran Murphy. He manages Siobhan's bookstore, and the grouchy bookworm clearly doesn't want Em around. Emily persists, and spending her days bantering with the annoyingly handsome mercurial Irishman only makes her fall more deeply in love with the new life she's built - and for the man who seems to soften toward her with every quip she throws at him. But when she discovers the reason for Kieran's initial resistance, Em finds herself torn between helping Siobhan find closure with her series and her now undeniable feelings for Kier. As Siobhan's novel progresses, Emily will have to decide if she's truly ready to turn a new page and figure out what lies in the next chapter.

Final book of May - a sweet little romance. It‘s set in Ireland so a lot of charm is in the atmosphere of the book. The romance is a bit of a slow burn, mature content while there, is modest compared to most of the mainstream reads. I felt that romance was secondary to the heroine‘s personal journey. I enjoyed it, but it could be a little bit faster paced.

KadaGul This sounds like “99% Mine”! I loved every minute of it 📖😍🥰 2mo

I loved this one. I stayed up way too late to finish it last night. It did have a bit more spice than I was expecting. (Again, I'm blaming the cover art.) This was also VERY emotional. I legit SOBBED at one point. And may have cried more than once. I loved everything about it, though, and highly recommend. It was this book lovers' dream. Oh, and there is a recipe for Irish whiskey shortbread in the back. (Thank you 🇮🇪 for speaking up for 🇵🇸!!)

I'm on pango books now. Well, as a buyer. This makes 7 apps or online sources I use for thrifting books: Ebay, etsy, thriftbooks, AbeBooks, poshmark, TikTok and now pangobooks. (Always check any individual sellers reviews to avoid a bad transaction.) This doesn't include the secondhand book places I visit locally as well. I definitely have a problem. I love the bookmark this seller included! Where do you like getting your second hand books?

I have been reading Jenn McKinlay‘s cozies for years, and this is my first time reading a book of hers that isn‘t a cozy mystery. This story had me from the start. I love books about Ireland, so I was excited from the first page, and this did not disappoint. The storyline was so much fun, the live hate relationship between the MC and the FMC was done so well, so of course they would end up together. ⬇️⬇️⬇️

BarkingMadRead Working through their own personal issues, plus the issues they have which other was such a wild ride. Grab some tissues and a blanket and settle in, because you will not want to put this down! 🍀🍀🍀🍀🍀 3mo

Another win for Jenn McKinlay! Love at First Book is a delightful romance. I loved Kier & Em. It explores authors, writing, and books set in a small Irish town with characters that will pull at your heart strings! I found myself loving these characters, laughing and crying tears with them. This story is so tender hearted, a perfect curl up in a favorite chair with a cozy blanket & a favorite drink.

Book 70/100 of the year.
