The Bookshop on the Corner by Rebecca Raisin
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!
A big thank you to Rebecca for sending me a copy to review whilst on the Gosling Girls tour.
Sarah Smith runs the Bookshop on the Corner, a beautiful place to pilgrimage to, for pre loved books and a quaint room to read them in.
Sarah can often be found lost in the world of fiction and investing her emotions in the heroes of the pages.
But one day the handsome Ridge enters the shop and Sarah starts to wonder, do handsome heroes only happen in books?
I defy any booklover to read this and not instantly relate to Sarah because this incredible novella will speak to every bookworm out there.
Rebecca Raisin has created a captivating novella that will have you longing to visit Ashford and meet the wonderful people who live there.
Because through the pages you don't just meet Sarah, you also meet her wonderful friends Missy, Ceecee and Lil.
The descriptiveness with which the bookshop was described had me longing to run my hands along the shelves and feeling the spines of old books that could share with us many stories.
This is a beautiful story that will have you losing hours, lost in the world of books and words, could there be anything better?
