Sarah lives in a small town in Connecticut and is struggling to keep her bookshop open. It’s called The Bookshop on the Corner. Her boyfriend is Ridge, a reporter, who is traveling doing freelance work. This means that their time together is minimal. Sophie owns Once Upon a Time bookshop in Paris. It’s located right along the Seine and is in a perfect location. Sarah and Sophie have become friends via a bookshop blog and Skype quite often. So, when Sophie’s heart is broken by her boyfriend, she suggests to Sarah that they exchange working at each other’s bookshops for a period of time as Sophie needs to get away. Living in Paris has always been on Sarah’s bucket list and so she agrees. They will live in each other’s apartments so it all works out perfectly.

When Sarah arrives in Paris, she is thrown right into the bookstore and becomes fascinated with the numerous customers and vast size of the store itself. Excited about being in Paris, she finds herself constantly tied to the store juggling all of the customers and endless duties. She soon discovers that while she is willing to work as many hours as necessary to get the jobs done, her French counterparts work when it pleases them to do so. However, she manages to steal some time away from the store here and there to explore the beautiful city of Paris.

Readers follow Sarah as she meets some of the regulars who come into the bookstore and stay all day. There are writers and painters and poets. The business at the bookstore is enormous with the tourists who line up to buy from the large and varied displays of books. Once Sarah lets her co-workers know she will not tolerate their attitude toward working, they come to respect her more and they become friends.

A charming contemporary romance that sparkles with warmth, wit and magic, The Little Bookshop on the Seine is the latest irresistible page-turner from the fabulous Rebecca Raisin!

Bookshop owner Sarah Smith has spent most of her life hiding from the world and seeking refuge in her favourite romance novels. When she met dashing journalist Ridge Warner, Sarah had soon realised that real life can be as thrilling and exciting as her favourite sweeping romances, however, the shy book lover has been feeling rather forlorn lately. While all of her friends are getting married, having babies and going on wild adventures, she cannot help but feel that she has been left behind. With her boyfriend on the other side of the world chasing the next big scoop and her business going through a slump, Sarah yearns for some excitement. She is tired of life passing her by and of always being on the outside looking in, so when her friend Sophie asks her whether she’d like to swap places with her and spend a couple of months managing her bookshop, Once Upon a Time, in Paris, she jumps at the chance of leaving her small town behind for the bright lights of the French capital.

When she arrives in Paris, Sarah is immediately overwhelmed by the romance and majesty of Paris, but her fantasy of sitting in a cosy cafe by the Seine, drinking red wine and reading her favourite books are soon dashed when she realises that Once Upon a Time is a thriving concern that is always heaving with book lovers, which requires her constant time and attention. Having given her word to Sophie, Sarah is not about to let her down, so she rolls up her sleeves and throws herself body and soul into managing Once Upon a Time to the best of her abilities.

I have to admit it was the beautiful cover, the word bookshop and figuring it was set in paris that I decided to check out this book. The day that I am writing this review its a blizzard out there,I'm stuck home and I wanted a sweet wintry book to read and this book seemed to be it. Its based around christmas time and usually I only read christmas time books strictly during that time I decided to read it anyways.

Now on to the content.

Sarah's booklover and bookshop owner friend who lives in Paris has just offered her a opportunity she just can't refuse. To for a few months switch book shops, where her fried Sophie would run her tiny quiet bookshop for Sophie's shop that has so much to do that'll leave Sarah second guessing everything. Sarah has always lived her life as a sheltered bookworm and it was time for her to come out of her shell and do more for herself and explore. This could be her opportunity to discover more, it'll test everything she knows and its leaves the question is the distance and overall surrounding good for her?

I loved this book, I thought it was sweet and fun to read. I loved seeing Sarah develop as a character learning new things. Seeing how she was handling everything around her from dealing with pain in the butt employees, to things going missing and such. I loved the aspect of the letters and the hopefulness to finding out more about who these people were they are reading about. I thought it was interesting how Sarah was dealing with long distance relationship. There was so much going on with this book that there was never a dull moment. I loved the ending, everything was tied up neatly, it was perfect.

I loved this book, its a holiday read but I would read it at any point and I would recommend you lovely readers to check out this book.
