I enjoyed this so much! It‘s sort of similar to The Language of Flowers, just set in the UK. I really liked getting to know the characters, especially since, in the beginning I didn‘t like them very much. The story is told in past and present by the main character, Loveday. It‘s a coming of age story with a lot of heart.

I probably would have passed this by but for the praise of several fellow booksellers! I‘m glad I gave it a try, listening to the audiobook on Libro.fm with my husband. This was way quirkier and twistier than I expected, and it charmed me! Nina‘s struggle to rise above her own anxiety, trust issues, and introversion really spoke to me and were written really realistically. You‘ll root for Nina till the end!

This book was perfect to loose yourself between the lines. I loved it!

Widowed by suicide, Pen moved to a small RI town to join her aunt in running a bookstore. A PI was killed in the store in the 40s, and his ghost is in residence. Pen investigates mysteries with his help, and the help of friends.

Trippy - Pen converses with the ghost, Jack, in her head. Jack can pull her into dreams of his creation, based on past cases, where they enact scenes. Pen appears to be forming an amorous relationship with a ghost. 🤔

tdrosebud I've really enjoyed this series, though I still need to read this one. Maybe I'll grab it on my way to work this morning... 2d
mabell @tdrosebud This is the first I‘ve read in the series, but it wasn‘t too difficult to get to know the characters and setting. The premise is certainly unique! And this one is a pretty good mystery! I‘m looking forward to seeing how you think it compares to the others in the series! 2d
tdrosebud @mabell This is the 6th in the series, the first 5 are under the name Alice Kimberly. There was a lot of time between the 5th book and this one. The unique premise is what drew me into it too, it's so different from other cozies I've read. 2d

mabell @tdrosebud I was familiar with The name Cleo Coyle, but I didn‘t realize it was a pseudonym for a husband/wife duo. That‘s cool! 14h
mabell @Chrissyreadit Pretty unique 😄 I‘m always intrigued by the interesting storylines originated by cozy mystery authors. I read one which was based on an “emergency” bakery in a old ambulance. Haha. 14h

I've heard such mixed reviews on this book, so I'm excited to see for myself what it's like. 🤓 I feel like Waxman can be overly cheesy to the point of eye rolls, but I tend to like her overall plotlines so it's hard for me to say whether I'm really a fan of her or not. 🤷🏼‍♀️

Hooked_on_books Mixed reviews make a lot of people apprehensive—I love that they make you excited! That‘s really cool. 😎 2d
Rachel.Rencher @Hooked_on_books I have learned that I don't always agree with others' opinions on book... it's best to form ones own anyway 😁 2d

marleed I‘ve never been to Paris but I did convince my son and DIL to visit this shop when they visited in September. They loved it. And they brought me back the Sylvia Beach book! And stamped with proof of where purchased! 2d

The new quarter of Book Riot's MyTBR always sneaks up on me. To be able to leave my bibliologist some feedback, I grabbed this one on audiobook. I didn't love the narrator, and probably would have bailed on print, but I'm glad I kept listening. Finished in 1 work day - this is definitely a booklover's book. I laughed and cried and thoroughly enjoyed the literary references and A.J.'s rants. A nice, lighter read.

MaleficentBookDragon I loved this book so much. We read it for my IRL book club this year. 3d
