Under New Management

How to Find Love in a Bookshop by Veronica Henry is an enjoyable novel about a young woman named Emilia Nightingale who inherits her father’s bookshop in a quaint English village upon his death. Emilia’s enthusiasm for keeping the store open wains after she discovers it’s precarious financial status. With the aid of a dedicated staff and loyal customers, she forges ahead with plans to revitalize the musty shop.

Unbeknownst to Emilia, there’s a plot afoot hatched by a greedy local real estate developer who wishes to own the car park adjacent to the bookshop also owned by Emilia.

As stated in the novel’s title, there’s a love story and this is a feel good read for book enthusiasts. Its happy ending came as a welcome respite after all the heavy reading I’ve been doing recently. Recommended.


Please note: I received a copy of this novel from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
