Publisher's Summary

Nightingale Books, nestled on the high street in the idyllic Cotswold town of Peasebrook, is a dream come true for booklovers. But owner Emilia Nightingale is struggling to keep the shop open. The temptation to sell up is proving enormous - but what about the promise she made to her father? Not to mention the loyalty she owes to her customers.

Sarah Basildon, owner of stately pile Peasebrook Manor, has used the bookshop as an escape from all her problems in the past few years. But is there more to her visits than meets the eye?

Since messing up his marriage, Jackson asks Emilia for advice on books to read to the son he misses so much. But Jackson has a secret and is not all he seems....

And there's Thomasina, painfully shy, who runs a pop-up restaurant from her tiny cottage. She has a huge crush on a man she met and then lost in the cookery section, somewhere between Auguste Escoffier and Marco Pierre White. Can she find the courage to admit her true feelings?

How to Find Love in a Book Shop is the delightful story of Emilia's fight to keep her bookshop alive, the customers whose lives she has touched - and the books they all love.

    "relaxing and comforting"

    This book deals with grief and life. You know where it is going but it is a gentle journey. A perfect Christmas read as it finishes at Christmas time and therefore it would make you feel festive. I have just listened to it in the summer whilst gardening and it was perfect for that too

    Story
    "Even a cynical old b***** like me can enjoy this"

    Do you know it does us all good to listen to book like this now and again. It was the bookshop part of the title that drew me in (as a twice divorced woman it certainly wasn't the love angle). Another reviewer's description of 'brain fluff' is probably right but amongst all the angst novels and dark thrillers this really is a lovely escape. Yes all the people are nice and yes there are lots of happy endings - but tramping with the dogs on the common after a tough day at work isn't it sometimes nice to get a nice warm glow when someone gets her man!

    "Lovely Story, Terrible Narrator"

    Always fab to read a new VH & I enjoyed the story, although didn't feel it was one of her best.

    The narrator was terrible, her voice was all wrong for the characters, most of the female characters sounded the same, so it was often difficult to tell who was talking, if no other indication had been made.

    Story
    "Sweet summer read"

    This book started very well and I thought it was going to have real depth, but after about a third of the way in it descended into a sickly sweet tale of happy ever afters. A nice book if you're after something light and untaxing.
    The performance was good, although the narrator's tone did perhaps increase the sickly factor at no fault of the author.
