Publisher's Summary

The enchanting story of a bookshop, its grieving owner, a supportive literary community, and the extraordinary power of books to heal the heart.
Nightingale Books, nestled on the main street in an idyllic little village, is a dream come true for book lovers - a cozy haven and welcoming getaway for the literary-minded locals. But owner Emilia Nightingale is struggling to keep the shop open after her beloved father's death, and the temptation to sell is getting stronger. The property developers are circling, yet Emilia's loyal customers have become like family, and she can't imagine breaking the promise she made to her father to keep the store alive.
There's Sarah, owner of the stately Peasebrook Manor, who has used the bookshop as an escape in the past few years, but it now seems there's a very specific reason for all those frequent visits. Next is roguish Jackson, who, after making a complete mess of his marriage, now looks to Emilia for advice on books for the son he misses so much. And the forever shy Thomasina, who runs a pop-up restaurant for two in her tiny cottage - she has a crush on a man she met in the cookbook section but can hardly dream of working up the courage to admit her true feelings.
Enter the world of Nightingale Books for a serving of romance, long-held secrets, and unexpected hopes for the future - and not just within the pages on the shelves. How to Find Love in a Bookshop is the delightful story of Emilia, the unforgettable cast of customers whose lives she has touched, and the books they all cherish.

Delightful story with well developed characters!

There's a real sense of place in this book - I want to visit Peasebrook and spend time in Nightengale Books. Even though
most of the individuals in the book are likeable, each has his/her own quirks and flaws. I didn't want to stop listening.

Love, Love, Love, this book

This was one of those stories that kept me sitting in my car in the garage listening to more because I didn't want it to stop. I felt good about all the characters and the story. These days as I'm struggling with some of life's "stuff", this book was a welcome reprieve The audio performance soothed me as I listened. The writing transformed me to a place I want to experience. It was like taking a vacation in spirit. The only negative comment I have is that it wasn't long enough.
