It took me the entire span of the book, but in the end I really ended up liking it. I’m finding that I have now read quite a few books that have a very similar theme. Small town, parent death, leaving behind a bookstore or restaurant to an estranged daughter or niece who is financially struggling and debates on whether to sell the place to a local real estate antagonist or to revamp the business into something sustainable. This book was complicated by many different love stories that all revolved or resolved in the bookshop but I did find so many characters and stories too be confusing until 3/4 of the way through to keep everyone straight. This is a real feel good read, nothing groundbreaking in this book but it’s an entertaining read.
