The Bookshop on the Corner by Jenny Colgan

ISBN-10: 0062467255

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.

 The Bookshop on the Corner by Jenny Colgan is definitely the author's gift to all of us who have bookish hearts and enjoy reading romance with a bit of drama and a heap of goodness thrown into the mix! 

I found this book to be delightful and I so connected with Nina's love for books.  The story is sweet, refreshing and I truly enjoyed reading it! 

My only disappointment was a very small one ... I felt the ending was a bit too abrupt; I would like to have followed more of the character's lives. Still, that could very well be chalked up to the fact that I just didn't  want the story to end. I am definitely look forward to reading more of Ms. Colgan's books.

4 Stars! 

If you love books, romance, a bit of drama and anything Scotland ~
 The Bookshop on the Corner is most definitely for you! 

Thank you to William Morrow Paperbacks, Harper Collins and Edelweiss for the free gift of this book in exchange for an honest review.
