Title: The Little Bookshop of Lonely Hearts
Author: Annie Darling
Blurb: Once upon a time in a crumbling London bookshop, Posy Morland spends her life lost in the pages of her favourite romantic novels.
So when Bookend’s eccentric owner, Lavinia, dies and leaves the shop to Posy, she must put down her books and join the real world. Because Posy hasn’t just inherited an ailing business, but also the unwelcome attentions of Lavinia’s grandson Sebastian, about whom she’s started to have some rather feverish fantasies..
Like her favourite romantic heroines, will she get her happy ever after too?
Review: This is a book that I read a little while ago now but one that has stayed with me it is a wonderful book. The first thing that captured my attention was the title. I love a good story that is based in a book shop. Lonely hearts gathering to find there hero’s or heroine’s in far off lands.
This book has some great characters and the relationship between Posy and Sebastian feels so real and is wonderful to follow throughout the story. Right from the start they have a love hate relationship. Annie creates some real funny laugh out loud moments between the two of them.
Posy is the new owner of Bookends and she has to save it. Sebastian and Posy have different ideas about how it should be saved. I loved reading about it and finding out about how it developed. It is a beautiful setting especially to make your dreams come true and find romance.
I am not going to give anything away about whether the book store is saved or if Posy finds love herself and not just between the page of a book. It is beautiful written and a must read for all book fans. This is a story I will read again and again.
