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 book shop 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 Book Shop is the delightful story of Emilia’s fight to keep her book shop alive, the customers whose lives she has touched – and the books they all love.


I am absolutely delighted to be reviewing this book as it celebrates everything booky and this book for me is one of the best for a bookworm. A big thank you to Elaine for sending me a copy .  But also thanks to Veronica for brilliantly writing it .

The words literally are able to encapsulate how we bookworms feel about our love of books .


I whizzed through it as I couldn’t put it down .

The characters all brought their own stories were all very interesting to read ,for me my favourite was Emilia who was a very strong leading female left with some difficult decisions . Should she follow her heart or her head?

The setting was beautiful and you could imagne being there and how the bookshop grew to be a central part of the town .

Each character has their own troubles and past and find comfort some way or another in the book shop .

This celebrates love of books and what joy they bring to us ,whether your a avid reader or a newbie .

Even weeks on from finishing this I feel a love and passion for this book .

This book is about dreams old and new and the beauty of them in whatever form.

A beautiful story and one I will always treasure and it really shows how magical bookshops and books are.
