I loved Sarah's Bookshop on the Corner. I could totally picture the place complete with the cozy reading space and all the lovely, fluttering books. Books are meant to be treasured and Sarah's shop brings them wonderful new homes. Sarah is living in her own world, which is filled with romance novels. A lot of book lovers are like her, especially the ones whose whole life evolves around books. That made her very believable and extremely endearing. I love how Rebecca Raisin tells her stories, I could almost see myself walking around in the village and I want to visit the bookshop and the café so badly. The characters are all warm and welcoming. I liked Ridge, the mysterious man who suddenly entered Sarah's life. He's a real romance hero. I appreciated the nice twist at the end as well. Rebecca Raisin's novellas are absolutely fantastic!
Well, this is the 2nd time this year I have been sucked into the picture perfect Ashford. The quaint town where not only can you find Lil and CeeCee at the Gingerbread Cafe. Supplying the delicious, sweet treats that had me practically drooling on to my iPad last time. Now we get to lose ourselves in Sarah Smiths bookstore. Chocolate and books are pretty much up the top of my favourite things list, so I'm now in my element moving on to Sarah's story.
Stepping in to the Bookstore is like stepping through the wardrobe and finding Narnia beyond the coats. It's another world within the walls of Sarah's Bookstore. Nothing like any Bookstores you find today when trawling shops. These are the magical gems that pop up once in a blue moon. All of the books in Sarah's store say so much. Not only do they tell their tales, they also talk of the people who once owned them. Sarah has an amazing way of knowing so much about a book, she can picture it's life before it was sitting on her shelf.
"Maybe a customer would stumble across one of them today, run a hand lovingly across their covers, before selecting a book that caught their attention. Though my theory was books chose us, and not the other way around."
Just reading about this amazing bookstore with it's perfect setting and timeless inhabitants, would of been enough to keep me going for the entire story, but it's made all the more enticing in the form of Ridge. Just like the most coveted of book heroes. He's gorgeous, charming and incredibly interested in Sarah. Sarah has always been content in her life with her books and their dreamy, romance. She didn't want for anything else, when she had her books to keep her company.Read more ›
This is a novella book lovers will undoubtedly fall in love with, just like I did. It was easy to warm to Sarah, because I could recognise myself in her. I’d do anything to be the owner of an amazing book shop like the one described in this story; it sounds like such a wonderful place, heaven on earth for book lovers! Rebecca Raisin’s descriptive writing style really made it easy for me to imagine everything in my head; not just the book shop, but the entire village and the cast of amazing characters. I loved Sarah’s friends, such as her best friend Missy, who runs the beauty salon in town, and CeeCee and Lils from the Gingerbread Cafe, and there’s also the handsome stranger, Ridge; I could completely understand why Sarah was swept off her feet by him!
I’m not familiar with Rebecca Raisins’ other novellas about the Gingerbread Cafe; this didn’t bother me while reading this particular story, so it definitely works as a stand-alone. It did make me curious, though, and I look forward to picking up Rebecca’s other stories in the near future!Read more ›
