Given a backroom computer job when the beloved Birmingham library she works in turns into a downsized retail complex, Nina misses her old role terribly - dealing with people, greeting her regulars, making sure everyone gets the right books for their needs. Then a new business nobody else wants catches her eye: owning a tiny little bookshop bus up in the Scottish Highlands.

I loved this book, it's such a fun silly romp. Jenny Colgan at her best. Such a lovely feel good book. The characters were all charming, sweet and well written.
