Blog Tour: The Bookshop on the Corner by Rebecca Rasin

Today I am part of the blog tour for The Bookshop on the Corner by Rebecca Raisin


Who said that only real heroes could be found in fiction?
Sarah Smith had an addiction – she was addicted to romance novels. The meet-cute, the passion, the drama and the gorgeous men! Now this wouldn’t have been such an issue if she hadn’t been the owner of the only bookshop in Ashford, Connecticut.
Ever since her close friend Lil, from The Gingerbread CafĂ©, had become engaged she had been yearning for a little love to turn up in her life. Except Sarah knew a good man was hard to find – especially in a tiny town like Ashford. That was until New York journalist, Ridge Warner stepped into her bookshop…
Love could be just around the corner for Sarah, but will she be able to truly believe that happy-ever-after can happen in real-life too!


Being an avid reader and book lover, the title of this book instantly caught my attention. Definitely a title that I think will capture all book lovers interest.

The Bookshop on the Corner tells the story of Sarah who runs a bookshop in a small Kent village. She is a serious bookworm and loves getting lost in romance novels. She's quite happy with her lot in life and having the same routine everyday, but the only romance she is getting is in the fictional world. Then Ridge walks into her little bookshop as if he is straight from one of her treasured romance novels...

The Bookshop on the Corner is the third book in the Gingerbread Cafe series, but you do not need to read the first two to enjoy this one.

This was a nice, quick read that I found easy to lose myself in. Sarah is a very relatable character with her love of books and introversion. She also lives in a really lovely village with some really lovely quaint little shops and a close-knit community- sounded like my ideal type of heaven. 

I would have liked to have read more about Sarah and Ridge. It just felt like their courtship happened a bit too quickly. Although I liked how this was a shorter book than ones that I have read recently and was just what I needed, I would have liked this one to be longer as I felt like a lot more could have happened to make it better and would have developed the story a bit more. This is just my opinion though, it is still a nice read, maybe if I had read the first two books it would have given the book a bit more grounding for me.

Overall if you are looking for a light-hearted, quick and easy read, The Bookshop on the Corner is a lovely read.


The Bookshop on the Corner is available from Amazon UK
