If anyone knows how to write a beautiful cosy Christmas novel it’s Jenny Colgan, and I was absolutely delighted to get my hands on a paperback copy of her newest release, The Christmas Bookshop, especially since it is has a bookish theme!
I’m planning to pick this one up on the weekend, and will share a review when I’ve read it, but in the mean time here’s the synopsis…
Carmen has always worked in her local department store. So, when the gorgeous old building closes its doors for good, she is more than a little lost.
When her sister, Sofia, mentions an opportunity in Edinburgh – a cute little bookshop, the spare room in her house – Carmen is reluctant, she was never very good at accepting help. But, short on options, she soon finds herself pulling into the snowy city just a month before Christmas.
What Sofia didn’t say is that the shop is on its last legs and that if Carmen can’t help turn things around before Christmas, the owner will be forced to sell. Privately, Sofia is sure it will take more than a miracle to save the store, but maybe this Christmas, Carmen might surprise them all…
I’d love to know whether anyone else has this one on their Christmassy tbr for December – let me know in the comments!!
*Big thanks to Hachette books for sending me this one!*
