Publisher's Summary

Today is the Mondayest Monday ever. Hallie Winstone has been fired – and it wasn’t even her fault! 

Having lost her job and humiliated herself in front of a whole restaurant full of diners, this is absolutely, one hundred percent, the worst day of her life. 

That is until she receives an email announcing that she is the lucky winner of the Once Upon a Page Bookshop! 

Owning a bookshop has always been Hallie’s dream, and when she starts to find secret love letters on the first page of every book, she knows she's stumbled across something special. 

But Hallie’s beloved bookshop is in financial trouble, and with sales dwindling, she can’t help but wonder if she is really cut out to run a business. 

Things start to look up when she meets gorgeous, bookish Dimitri and between them, they post a few of the hidden messages online, reuniting people who thought they were lost forever. 

But maybe it’s time for Hallie to find her own happy-ever-after, too?

And now I want a bookshop

I do love books about books and book people. This one is a bit slow to start, to show you what is unique about it. The foreshadowing is heavy-handed, as is the use of typical romance phrases (yes, look at those strong biceps). However, look past it for a sweet story that will have you looking for love messages in used books and wishing you could win a shop in a raffle, too.

Beautifully written

It started off as any usual romance novel but the plot was definitely unique and well written. I enjoyed listening to this story and imagining the beautiful scenery. Definitely gave me more of a perspective as to why people love books so much.

Author tried too hard.

I had high expectations for this based on the name alone. It started off well and I was convinced I had found my new favourite cozy read with the bonus of lots of bookish talk. However, it became pretty clear about a quarter of the way through or maybe even before that, that this was not going to go the way I expected.

I loved the premise. I mean two bookworms working alongside eachother in a bookshop who fall in love, what's not there to love? But the author just exaggerated everything. Everything felt excessive, forced and after a while irritating— especially the humour.

The romance felt luke walm and extremely juvenile. I had to keep reminding myself I was reading about adults in their 30's and not teenagers. The protagonist was too clumsy and way too negative about herself that it exceeded the thin line of humorous and relatable to annoying and unbelievable.

It had it's good moments which were mainly the bookish talk but everything else just didn't work for me. It could have easily been 100 pages shorter.
