Looking to stock up on your holiday reads? Here’s one to add to your list!
Blurb: Bookshop owner Sarah Smith has been offered the opportunity to exchange bookshops with her new Parisian friend for 6 months! And saying yes is a no-brainer–after all, what kind of a romantic would turn down a trip to Paris . . . for Christmas?
Even if it does mean leaving the irresistible Ridge Warner behind, Sarah’s sure she’s in for the holiday of a lifetime–complete with all the books she can read!
Imagining days wandering around Shakespeare & Co, munching on croissants, sipping café au laits and watching the snow fall on the Champs-Élysées Sarah boards the plane.
But will her dream of a Parisian Happily-Ever-After come true? Or will Sarah realise that the dream of a Christmas fairytale in the city of love isn’t quite as rosy in reality . . .
This was such a great book to pick up—I mean: Christmas, Paris, bookshop, romance. All the best ingredients for a cute romance book. Sarah and Ridge were adorable, who truly loved each other but had some work some things out in their relationship. It was realistic, and had me daydreaming of Paris.
At first I thought a bit predictable, but after reading it for a bit longer, I realized that it’s not at all. This book is all about a couple who are already together and trying to make a long distance relationship work. They are both desperately in love with each other, but when Sarah is in Paris and only sees Ridge for one day out of 90 days, she starts to question whether their romance will survive the distance. This is all about making your relationship work and about communication. This was a realistic romance book, and I throughly enjoyed every moment of being in that Paris bookshop and wandering Parisian streets (and even going into the Louvre to see Van Gogh’s Starry Night!).
This is the second book in The Bookshop series by Rebecca Raisin (the first being where Sarah and Ridge first meet and fall in love). This was my first book of Rebecca’s and I was not lost at all.
My Rating: 4/5 stars
