    Un~put~downable

    Loved this stand alone novel! written with Jenny,s unique style. Being Scottish, I found this very amusing and relateable, falling in love with all of the characters. I really hope we might catch up with them all again sometime

    Good story

    Well, its not the 1st time I have picked up a book because the word bookshop featured in the title....this however had very little to do with bookshops. Nevertheless it was a good story about Zoe starting a new life in Scotland as a nanny to 3 difficult children with her young son. It was an amusing read at times with a hint of mystery, which made the book more interesting. I did feel the ending was a big let down...it was way too neat, predictable and 'fluffy'. Even so, I probably will read more from this author.

    Wonderful book - I didn't want it to end!

    Oh I do love a Jenny Colgan book, and the minute I started this I knew it was going to be as lovely as all her other books. Her characters are just so interesting, and we get to revisit the Scottish Highlands from one of her other books, 'The Little Shop of Happy Ever After' (or 'The Bookstore on the Corner' depending on what country you're in - dual titles being something that really irritates me so hopefully it won't happen with this book!). Zoe is a single Mum to Hari and struggling to make ends meet in London when her (sort of) sister-in-law (Hari's father's sister) throws her a lifeline, telling her of a job in the Highlands of Scotland, looking after some children part-time and running a book van for her friend who is pregnant and finding it too hard right now. So Zoe decides she has nothing to lose and both her and Hari travel to Scotland. But the children she is looking after are a complete nightmare, excluded from school and doing exactly what they want to do, and Nina (book van owner) isn't really that friendly to Zoe as she's finding it hard to give up the van because of her pregnancy. I felt so sorry for Zoe, she was really having a hard time and thrown in at the deep end on both jobs. But she eventually starts to win the children around, and cheer up their (pretty useless to be honest) father too, and brighten up their beautiful manor house on the edge of a loch. It sounded a fabulous location, if a bit chilly! There were a few harder-hitting issues going on too, Hari was four but not talking (very funny bit about this late in the book), and one of the nightmare children definitely had some psychotic issues, very sad as she was only nine, but as it turned out probably inherited from her Mother. One of those stories that I wanted to keep reading, but didn't want to finish. Jenny Colgan is definitely an automatic buy for me, her stories are just so fabulous! Wonderful book.
