This is a solid example of ‘chick lit’ that can be digested without effort or disappointment.
If you like… librarian/book nerd characters, grumpy leading men, visions of Scotland, chick lit.
I happily listened to The Bookshop on the Corner on audiobook. My commute was too early for talk radio to be on, so I picked this up to keep me awake. It did the job.
This book falls into a category that I consider ‘meh’. The characters are engaging enough that I kept listening, but the storyline didn’t strike me as special. I love a good story revolving around librarians, or bakers, and Jenny Colgan consistently delivers leading ladies I can get behind. Nina, though, she got on my nerves a little bit. Also, I personally am very tired of the grouchy love interest turned brusque but tender. But if that’s your thing this book has plenty of it.
A++ narration though. Great voices for each character.
