Veronica Henry: How to Find Love in a Bookshop

But owner Emilia Nightingale is struggling to keep the shop open and the developers are circling. The temptation to sell up is proving enormous – but what about the promise she made to her father? Not to mention her customers, for whom the shop is a comfort, a meeting place, a lifeline.

There's Gary, a stable lad for a nearby trainer, who buys books to read to Nikki, who is lying in a coma. He spends every spare hour at Nikki's bedside, never giving up hope that she will come round.

Betty, who runs a supper club from her tiny cottage, has a huge crush on a man she met and then lost in the cookery section, somewhere Auguste Escoffier and Marco Pierre White.

Veronica Henry: How to Find Love in a Bookshop

Úgy tűnik, az év végén rám jön, hogy olvasnék valami limonádét, pihenésképp. Abszolút nem vagyok ellene az ilyesminek, Sophie Kinsella könyveit például kifejezetten kedvelem, sablonosak és kiszámíthatóak, de viccesek, és bele tudja magát élni az ember a főszereplő helyzetébe, még ha baromi kellemetlen is sokszor.

She tried to empty her mind and focus, so she could identify what she wanted, but it was impossible, because what she wanted was for everything to still be the same, for her father to be here, and for her to be able to drop in whenever she liked; have coffee with him, a meal with him, just a chat with him.

She put her face in her hands. ‘I’m so excited. But I’m scared. I’ve got to make the decision and I don’t know what to do. It would be so easy to walk away and go back to my old life. Or sell up and start a new one. Either of those would be easier!’

(…) I wanted a copy of Alice’s favourite book – I can’t find it anywhere at home. But I thought it would be nice for her to have something to read.’
    ‘Of course. What is it?’
    Sarah gave a smile. ‘_Riders_. Jilly Cooper. Do you have it in stock?’
    ‘Of course! A book shop’s not a book shop without Riders. Especially round here.’ Emilia walked over to the fiction shelves.
