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 Bookshop 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.

A charming valentine to lovers, books, and lovers of books. Think of it as a British sequel to “The Storied Life Of A.J. Rivkay.”

Really enjoyed this book. Took a little while to get into it, but was ultimately charmed by a wide cast of characters. Very nicely written, making reading time a sweet escape for anyone who would love to find love in a book shop.

An absolutely fabulous multi-protagonist story with a treasured bookshop as the focal point to their intersecting lives. I grieved, celebrated, and fell in love right along with each character. I will undoubtedly be seeking out more stories from this author.

I had a hard time getting through this book, it seemed to drag on and on and on. However, I was interested in the characters and what happened to them so I continued on and finished the book. I had seen the movie "Love Actually" and understood the many references of similarities in the two stories. I did finish the book and, of course, everyone lived happily ever after!!

This was the perfect, quick, summer read for a plane trip.

"Enchanting" is the perfect description. This book was recommended to me by a librarian friend who lives in Colorado. She wants to live in the bookshop. It is located near Oxford University in England, and I think the story would make a wonderful movie.

The story takes place around a bookshop. That makes this a literary book. Otherwise, sit back and live into this delightful read. Romance, finding happiness, and good endings.

Delightful story of a small town book store and the people who interact in the town. Many find love and friendship. I call it a fantasy but a very sweet one and I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book.

A perfect cozy weekend read. Endearing characters, bookish delights, scrumptious food, and English countryside ambiance. What's not to love?
