It’s my ultimate dream, to run my own bookshop. So when Emilia’s father dies and she returns home to the Cotswolds to take over the running of his little bookshop, and she can’t decide whether she should keep it running or not, I was screaming at the book for her to make the right decision!
I adored Emilia, as soon as I started reading I felt like she could be one of my best friends, she’s going through such a tough time that I just wanted to give her a hug.
But I would have enjoyed the book much more if it had focused more closely on Emilia, but there were a few other storylines intermingled into Emilia’s – some of which were closely related, some not so much. For me personally, there was just a bit too much going on, which is why I couldn’t give the book five out of five.
I could tell that I hadn’t loved the book as I didn’t feel that urge to keep picking it up and reading it like I do when I truly love a book. I just wasn’t engrossed in it like I have been with my favourite books in the past.
