The Bookshop on the Corner by Rebecca Raisin + Giveaway!

Who said that only real heroes could be found in fiction?
Sarah Smith had an addiction – she was addicted to romance novels. The meet-cute, the passion, the drama and the gorgeous men! Now this wouldn’t have been such an issue if she hadn’t been the owner of the only bookshop in Ashford, Connecticut.
Ever since her close friend Lil, from The Gingerbread Café, had become engaged she had been yearning for a little love to turn up in her life. Except Sarah knew a good man was hard to find – especially in a tiny town like Ashford. That was until New York journalist, Ridge Warner stepped into her bookshop…
Love could be just around the corner for Sarah, but will she be able to truly believe that happy-ever-after can happen in real-life too!


Sarah Smith is a friend of Lil, the owner of the Gingerbread Café. She has a bookshop in Ashford. Sarah lives for her romance novels. When she needs some more customers she starts writing a blog and because of it sales start to go up very quickly. Sarah has her wonderful friends Missy, Lil and CeeCee, but something is still missing in her life, love. It might be standing on her doorstep in the form of a journalist named Ridge, but she does need to let him in before anything can happen.
I loved Sarah's Bookshop on the Corner. I could totally picture the place complete with the cozy reading space and all the lovely, fluttering books. Books are meant to be treasured and Sarah's shop brings them wonderful new homes. Sarah is living in her own world, which is filled with romance novels. A lot of book lovers are like her, especially the ones whose whole life evolves around books. That made her very believable and extremely endearing. I love how Rebecca Raisin tells her stories, I could almost see myself walking around in the village and I want to visit the bookshop and the café so badly. The characters are all warm and welcoming. I liked Ridge, the mysterious man who suddenly entered Sarah's life. He's a real romance hero. I appreciated the nice twist at the end as well. Rebecca Raisin's novellas are absolutely fantastic!

 Rebecca Raisin is very generous! She hasn't only given me my copy of the Bookshop on the Corner, she will also give one to a very lucky reader of my blog.

    This sounds like a gorgeous little read. Though I have to say, front covers like this bring out the sourness in me.


  5. I have such a weakness for cute covers
