VERONICA HENRY How to Find Love in a Bookshop
Author of ultimate holiday read The Beach Hut, Veronica Henry weaves a charming story set in a Cotswold bookshop. Nightingale Books, nestled in Peasebrook, a picture-postcard Cotswold town, is a book lovers’ dream. But owner Emilia Nightingale is struggling to keep the shop open. She is tempted to sell up, but she has made a promise to her father. And for her customers, the shop is a meeting place, a lifeline. Gary, a stable lad for a nearby trainer, buys books to read to Nikki, who is lying in a coma. Betty runs a supper club from her cottage, and has a crush on a man she met and then lost in the cookery section. Mrs Norris repeatedly ‘forgets’ to pay for her books – and Emilia hasn’t the heart to remind her. Then Emilia meets Dexter, a local jack-the-lad, who wants to improve his English, and together they rediscover her favourite authors. How to Find Love in a Bookshop is the delightful story of Emilia’s fight to keep her bookshop alive. • Veronica Henry won the Romantic Novel of the Year Award in 2014 for A Night On the Orient Express, which has sold over 100,000 copies. ‘An exuberant novel of love, lust, hopes and dreams’ Woman & Home on The Beach Hut Veronica Henry lives with her family in a village in north Devon. She writes features and short stories for newspapers and magazines, including the Daily Mail, Woman & Home and Red magazine.
