The Little Bookshop of Lonely Hearts by Annie Darling
A delightful new series set in a quaint old bookshop, for fans of Lucy Diamond and Jenny Colgan. Where happy ever after is only a page away…
Once upon a time in a crumbling bookshop, Posy Morland hid in the pages of 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 attentions of Lavinia’s grandson, Sebastian, AKA The Rudest Man In London™.
Posy has six months to transform Bookends into the shop of her dreams but as Posy and her friends fight to save the bookshop, she’s drawn into a battle of wills with Sebastian, about whom she’s started to have some rather feverish fantasies…
I simply adored the banter between Posy and Sebastian! He's not your typical hero/hunk in that, to me, he came across as a bit of a dandy, but the aww factor is there all the same, and that's what we read romcoms for, right?
Loved the bookshop, the other characters, the plot - all of it. When I got to the end, I had the warm fuzzies for the rest of the day - just what I needed!
