Nightingale Books, nestled on the main street in an idyllic little village, is a dream come true for book lovers -- a cozy haven and welcoming getaway for the literary-minded locals. But owner Emilia Nightingale is struggling to keep the shop open after her beloved father's death, and the temptation to sell is getting stronger. The property developers are circling, yet Emilia's loyal customers have become like family, and she can't imagine breaking the promise she made to her father to keep the store alive. There's Sarah, owner of the stately Peasebrook Manor, who has used the bookshop as an escape in the past few years, but it now seems there's a very specific reason for all those frequent visits. Next is roguish Jackson, who, after making a complete mess of his marriage, now looks to Emilia for advice on books for the son he misses so much. And the forever shy Thomasina, who runs a pop-up restaurant for two in her tiny cottage -- she has a crush on a man she met in the cookbook section, but can hardly dream of working up the courage to admit her true feelings. Enter the world of Nightingale Books for a serving of romance, long-held secrets, and unexpected hopes for the future -- and not just within the pages on the shelves.

An absolutely fabulous multi-protagonist story with a treasured bookshop as the focal point to their intersecting lives. I grieved, celebrated, and fell in love right along with each character. I will undoubtedly be seeking out more stories from this author.

I had a hard time getting through this book, it seemed to drag on and on and on. However, I was interested in the characters and what happened to them so I continued on and finished the book. I had seen the movie "Love Actually" and understood the many references of similarities in the two stories. I did finish the book and, of course, everyone lived happily ever after!!

This was the perfect, quick, summer read for a plane trip.

"Enchanting" is the perfect description. This book was recommended to me by a librarian friend who lives in Colorado. She wants to live in the bookshop. It is located near Oxford University in England, and I think the story would make a wonderful movie.

A really nice story from Veronica Henry... well set in England with lots of interesting characters. Well worth reading!

The story takes place around a bookshop. That makes this a literary book. Otherwise, sit back and live into this delightful read. Romance, finding happiness, and good endings.

Delightful story of a small town book store and the people who interact in the town. Many find love and friendship. I call it a fantasy but a very sweet one and I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book.

A perfect cozy weekend read. Endearing characters, bookish delights, scrumptious food, and English countryside ambiance. What's not to love?

There were lots of characters in this book with intertwined stories--all connected to Nightingale Books. Emilia's father Julius started Nightingale Books shortly after becoming a father and a widower on the same day. When he dies of cancer, Emilia returns home from Hong Kong to continue his work and discovers just how much Julius and the bookstore were impacting their community.

This book reminded me of "Nine Women, One Dress" by Jane Rosen and other chicklit readers who enjoyed that book will love this one.

As a librarian, I especially appreciated the starring role of books and their power to heal, inspire and educate.

A warm hearted book set in the beautiful English countryside. Curl up for a good read!
