Review: The Bookshop on the Corner by Rebecca Raisin

The Bookshop on the Corner (The Bookshop, #1)

Blurb:  Who said that only real heroes could be found in fiction?

Sarah Smith had an addiction – she was addicted to romance novels. The meet-cute, the passion, the drama and the gorgeous men! Now this wouldn’t have been such an issue if she hadn’t been the owner of the only bookshop in Ashford, Connecticut.

Ever since her close friend Lil, from The Gingerbread Café, had become engaged she had been yearning for a little love to turn up in her life. Except Sarah knew a good man was hard to find – especially in a tiny town like Ashford. That was until New York journalist, Ridge Warner stepped into her bookshop…

Love could be just around the corner for Sarah, but will she be able to truly believe that happy-ever-after can happen in real-life too!

My Rating: 5/5

Review:  Having read The Little Bookshop on the Seine (review here) and Christmas at the Gingerbread Cafe and loved them both this seemed like the ideal choice for me when I was experiencing a bit of a reading slump.  Although I knew the characters a little bit from those other books it doesn’t matter if you haven’t read any of these books first as this also works as a stand alone.

This is  a lovely story, my one complaint is that it wasn’t longer! Having said that there is a lot covered here.  Sarah Smith loves her books.  It seems like she spends almost every available minute in her bookshop or, when at home, reading books. Although she spends a lot of time with her books she does have a few friends, one of whom has recently become engaged which gets Sarah to wondering if she could ever have something like that herself.  Into this burgeoning inner turmoil walks Ridge Warner, someone who suddenly irritates but fascinates Sarah in equal measure.  If you want to know what happens next you’ll have to read it for yourself, to say anymore would give too much away and I don’t do spoilers.

This is another excellent story from Rebecca Raisin which is ideal for a lazy afternoon or duvet day with tea or coffee, or even gingerbread coffee if you can get some……….

The book can be bought from Amazon UK now.
