The Illegal Gardener
- The Greek Village Series, Volume 1
- By: Sara Alexi
- Narrated by: Suzanne Heathcote
- Length: 8 hrs and 3 mins
A delightful glimpse into the lives of two very different people who became friends and were both better for it. A rare friendship that changed their lives and may change yours a bit too.
Well meaning but dull and annoying

The Little Paris Bookshop
- By: Nina George
- Narrated by: Ray Sawyer
- Length: 12 hrs and 9 mins
On a beautifully restored barge on the Seine, Jean Perdu runs a bookshop - or, rather, a 'literary apothecary', for this bookseller possesses a rare gift for sensing which books will soothe the troubled souls of his customers. The only person he is unable to cure, it seems, is himself. He has nursed a broken heart ever since the night, twenty-one years ago, when the love of his life fled Paris, leaving behind a handwritten letter that he has never dared read.

Would you listen to The Little Paris Bookshop again? Why?
I really loved this book- very thought provoking! Beautifully descriptive- I feel as if I have been to all the places in the book!
What other book might you compare The Little Paris Bookshop to, and why?
completely different story but the other book I loved this year was the illegal gardener by Sara alexi. Again beautifully written- made me question a lot and so descriptive I felt I was there!!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
yes- most definitely!
