    Fantastic read!

    I don't read a lot of contemporary romance, but every now and then, one grabs me and won't let go. This was one of those novels and it was an impulse buy that I am extremely glad I made. I was initially taken by the cover as it sat on the shelf in my local PX. I had time to kill and no book with me, so I picked it up and settled into Starbucks and was immediately lost. In the foreword. Yes, the foreword. It was smart and funny and it set the tone for the whole novel. The novel is set in the United Kingdom, first Britain and then Scotland. I'm from northern New York and living in Hawaii, but I felt like I was transported to the Highlands of Scotland. Colgan's writing is so perfectly descriptive that I saw everything Nina saw. It made me feel as if I were a participant in the story, rather than a far off observer. Nina is a librarian who is forced to find a new way to make a living when her library closes to consolidate with another in a cost-saving measure. She is left not only without a job, but feeling as if the printed word was a dying breed. But it is enough of an impetus to make her throw caution to the wind and follow her dreams of owning her own little bookshop. But, as is the trend in her life presently, none of her plans go through as they were supposed to and her life moves in totally different directions. That theme, the idea of life throwing you a curve, is something I think that all readers can relate to on some level. The idea of having to uproot everything you've known and find a new identity... ideas that are scary for all of us. But that is what Nina does and it's a story that is truly engaging. And the romance... that is something rather new for Nina, something she is not entirely comfortable with. And all of a sudden, there is more than one man in her life. Her former coworker Griffin confesses to his interest in her, which, although she doesn't return it, gives her a spark of confidence. Then there is Marek, the exotic Soviet train worker she meets in the middle of the most unexpected moment. Their romance blossoms, a sweet romance that shows promise. And then there is Lennox, her surly (but gorgeous) landlord with a trainload of baggage of his own. The twists and turns her love story takes are just as engaging as the rest of the story. One of my favorite parts of the book, beyond the overflow of book love, was a subplot involving a teenage girl. That story is poignant and tugs at the heartstrings in so many ways. I think the most eye opening moment for Nina, which really hit me, was a a moment when she is driving down the main street of her new home and sees just about everyone in sight reading. That scene was everything that I believe to be true about books and it was a great bit!

    Delightful!

    Jenny Colgan’s The Bookshop on the Corner was a delightful story of a woman who forges a new life for herself after losing her job. I enjoyed the authors laid back writing style, which made for a quick and entertaining story. This book was host to a cast of wonderful characters. The rural Scotland setting and the culture was beautifully described. Nina’s passion and knowledge of books will be very appealing to readers. I would recommend The Bookshop on the Corner to fans of contemporary fiction. I look forward to reading more from Jenny Colgan in the future. I was sent a copy of The Bookshop on the Corner by Jenny Colgan, from HarperCollins and TLC Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.

    Made me want to run a bookshop in Scotland

    Jenny Colgan is one of those authors that I have been meaning to read for ages. So, I finally decided to check out 'The Bookshop on the Corner" from my local library's overdrive collection. Personally, I thought that idea of a young and almost out of work woman picking up her life to run a mobile bookshop in a village in Scotland sounded like an idyllic read for a bit of nighttime reading. I wasn't wrong. First off, the novel’s setting is perfect. The author’s description of village life in Scotland felt incredibly cosy. By the end of the novel, I wanted to pack up my kindle and head for Kirrinfief. As for the characters, I was instantly drawn into the village life and felt myself becoming attached to the various people that Nina encountered in the community (Including the seemingly grumpy, Lennox). If I had to pick a caveat, it would be that the plot was fairly predictable. Nevertheless, I found myself so wrapped up in the sweetness of the book that the predictability didn’t matter too much to me. If I had to pick a caveat, it would be that the plot was somewhat predictable. Nevertheless, I was so engaged in the sweetness of the book, that the predictability wasn't much of an issue for me. Overall, I loved this book and would recommend it to others who are looking for a gentle book to read. I can't wait to read more from Jenny Colgan.
