The Little Shop of Happy Ever After

Cover: 'The Little Shop of Happy Ever After'

Staff Review: "The Little Shop of Happy Ever After" by Jenny Colgan

★★★★★

This lovely, new book by Jenny Colgan had me enchanted from the first page (just as all her others have). Readers meet the timid, but immediately lovable Nina, who's a librarian that suddenly loses her job in Birmingham, England due to a library closure. When her life suddenly shifts beneath her feet, Nina is forced to step outside her comfort zone and make the hidden dream of owning her own little bookstore a reality. When a van in Scotland pops up for sale, Nina can immediately envision her own bookshop bus delivering books to villages that have lost their libraries. This was a wonderful read by an author who's rapidly becoming one of my favorites. Her characters are always so humble, relatable, and extraordinary, and this book was no exception!
