THE BOOKSHOP ON THE CORNER
THE BOOKSHOP ON THE CORNERREBECCA RAISIN
Posted: June 24, 2014
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!
From the brilliant author of The Gingerbread Café trilogy don't miss this linked novella to get a sneak-peek at how Damon and Lil are getting on before the next book in the series - Coming October 2014!
This was a very sweet little short
story. The story line is near and dear
to me over the last 5 years or so before getting sick I was a multitasker. Never had time or got enjoyment from reading
could stop or slow my brain enough.
Raising a family and all just never allowed my mind to quiet itself
enough. When I became ill that all
changed it was all I could do but read.
To escape my room, my mind, my illness and my fears that was yet to be
So, reading so many books and talking with authors and reviewing a few
then being asked to do it on a regular basis for one evolved into this. Now the blog.
Here where I am going with all of this…These books do take on a life of
their own in your head. If you knew how
many different readers on my phone I have you would laugh and then how many hundreds
of books I have you would call me crazy.
It kills me when a new author comes out with a book and I don’t get it
for fear I’ll miss out on that gem of a book. Or that book that was so special it haunts you
so you remember bits and pieces of it. I
can honestly say I am not like Sarah Smith from “The Bookshop on the Corner”
who reads books over and over. I do
however keep actual books or series of books to share with family and
girlfriends. Sarah like myself loved a
good romance. Yet, she hid behind it,
out of fear of chancing her heart. So,
she ran her shop and putted along.
After a weekend of a Chocolate Festival in the town of her dearest
friends had put on. Lil the owner of
Gingerbread Café with her assistant and their dearest friend CeeCee the
grandmotherly one of their group and local “Spacebooker”. Then
there is Missy the owner of “The Sassy Salon” and her dearest friend. Why you ask?
They all gather because the sexiest well-built live “Book Boyfriend” to
ever come to life had been to the festival and was asking the girls all kinds
of questions about her and her alone.
Yet, to her, he was Mr. Ridge Warner a journalist from New York. There to do a story on their town of Ashford
and their quiet little shops especially hers.
Could he really be trusted?
He just made her so nervous that she just
started a flirtatious banter with him the minute she opened her mouth to say, “No”
to not using her or the shop in the article.
She wanted people to wander upon the special nook not be force fed it in
an article. See the sparks these two
make in this 5 stars short story.
