Book descriptionEveryone has a story . . . but will they get the happy ending they deserve?
Emilia has just returned to her idyllic Cotswold hometown to rescue the family business. Nightingale Books is a dream come true for book-lovers, but the best stories aren't just within the pages of the books she sells - Emilia's customers have their own tales to tell.
There's the lady of the manor who is hiding a secret close to her heart; the single dad looking for books to share with his son but who isn't quite what he seems; and the desperately shy chef trying to find the courage to talk to her crush . . .
And as for Emilia's story, can she keep the promise she made to her father and save Nightingale Books?

This is a new author to me and I really enjoyed this book. I was in the mood for a fun chick-lit type book and who would not want to find love in a bookshop. This book will have you going through many emotions, sadness, happiness, laughter and more. It was nice to learn the stories of patrons of the bookshop and what going to it means to each of them. The contractor made me angry because he wants to close the shop down. The main character has a lot on her shoulders and with the help of each of the patrons makes it through. The author has a nice writing style. After reading this book I want to look for more books by her. This is a great book to read on a cold winter day or a take to the beach story.
