The Bookshop on the Corner

I don’t normally do this, but on this occasion, I feel that I have to.  Rebecca Raisin, author of the Bookshop on the Corner (A Gingerbread Café story) has written my life story and she hasn’t even met me yet.


Who said that only real heroes could be found in fiction?

Sarah Smith had an addiction – she was addicted to romance novels. The meet-cute, the passion, the drama and the gorgeous men! Now this wouldn’t have been such an issue if she hadn’t been the owner of the only bookshop in Ashford, Connecticut.

Ever since her close friend Lil, from The Gingerbread Café, had become engaged she had been yearning for a little love to turn up in her life. Except Sarah knew a good man was hard to find – especially in a tiny town like Ashford. That was until New York journalist, Ridge Warner stepped into her bookshop…

Love could be just around the corner for Sarah, but will she be able to truly believe that happy-ever-after can happen in real-life too!



To me this was an amazingly feel good book. A nice quick read that you wont want to put it down. I know I didn’t, until it was completely finished.  It gave me tears within the first two chapters and full on belly laughs in other chapters.  If ever your felt like one of the characters in a book, to me, Sarah Smith is that character.  To own my own second-hand bookshop with a lovely little seating area where you can have a read and maybe a coffee with a cookie or a cupcake, is but a dream. 

I would highly recommended this book, to anyone who loves the feel of books, the smell of books and the heroes that you find in them. Sometimes, if you believe hard enough, they even come true.  It is a book that you will want to read over and over again. 

All three books in the series were published by Carina.

Check out her other two books in the series:

Christmas at the Gingerbread Café (Book 1)

Chocolate Dreams at the Gingerbread Café (Book 2)
