My Fav quote from the book: “You are braver and more beautiful than Ana, and I hope I am a better man than Vronski.”
The enchanting story of a bookshop, its grieving owner, a supportive literary community, and the extraordinary power of books to heal the heart
Nightingale Books, nestled on the main street in an idyllic little village, is a dream come true for book lovers–a cozy haven and welcoming getaway for the literary-minded locals. But owner Emilia Nightingale is struggling to keep the shop open after her beloved father’s death, and the temptation to sell is getting stronger. The property developers are circling, yet Emilia’s loyal customers have become like family, and she can’t imagine breaking the promise she made to her father to keep the store alive.
There’s Sarah, owner of the stately Peasebrook Manor, who has used the bookshop as an escape in the past few years, but it now seems there’s a very specific reason for all those frequent visits. Next is roguish Jackson, who, after making a complete mess of his marriage, now looks to Emilia for advice on books for the son he misses so much. And the forever shy Thomasina, who runs a pop-up restaurant for two in her tiny cottage–she has a crush on a man she met in the cookbook section, but can hardly dream of working up the courage to admit her true feelings.
Enter the world of Nightingale Books for a serving of romance, long-held secrets, and unexpected hopes for the future–and not just within the pages on the shelves. How to Find Love in a Bookshop is the delightful story of Emilia, the unforgettable cast of customers whose lives she has touched, and the books they all cherish.
A charming story based in a small town, with characters full of love for books, makes leaving down this book before finishing the last chapter almost impossible.
Nightingale books is the name of the bookshop where every customer finds what they truly desire, it might be a book, a friend, or even love. Owning the most popular place in Cotswold doesn’t make Emilia’s life easier. She inherited it from her beloved father and made a promise to him to never close it down. But keeping this promise might be harder than she thought.
|Emilia isn’t the only one struggling with the choices she has to make. Sarah, the owner of the Peasebrook Manor has a special connection with the bookshop, but she can’t share it with anyone because telling the truth might cause a lot of pain for a lot of people.|

Everyone’s life is connected one way or another to Nightingale shop, but is it enough to keep it open?
