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 Café, 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!
5 Words: Bookish, sweet, love, reading, friendship.
I freaking loved this. It was an easy and thoroughly enjoyable 5 star read, which I'd recommend to anyone who has ever gotten lost in a book. I've picked out so many lines, so many fantastic, wonderful quotes. I think I probably highlighted half of this. Easily.
“Time cleaning was less time reading, so I usually just did the minimal amount, and left it for another day, a day that would never come.”
I could relate so much to the main character, Sarah. She was wonderful to read. She's exactly the type of character that I think every bookworm would love to read, she's so familiar. And I loved the romance between her and Ridge, although it was a little creepy how he just showed up. And I loved how everything with Sarah related back to the books she loved so much.
This is a happy story of love when you least expect it, with a little but of turmoil thrown in for good measure. It's set in a wonderful little town filled with wonderful characters who I want to read more about.
I will absolutely read more of Rebecca Raisin's work. AWESOME. I want to go to Ashford. I'm off to read the Gingerbread Cafe books now!
