Bookshop by the Sea


Denise Hunter writes charming contemporary romance novels. Bookshop by the Sea is one to enjoy.

Aiden moved away after high school for an exciting job opportunity, and Sophie stays to care for her ailing mother and her two siblings. Sophie and her mother plan out the bookshop, and it's Sophie's plan to fulfil that dream. Enter Aiden, back for Sophie's sisters wedding after leaving Piper's Cove seven years prior. 

A second chance at love despite wrestling with conflicts and abandonment issues. The characters are well developed and interesting. Although Sophie's siblings are always expecting her to drop everything and fulfil their need. It's a co-dependency that Sophie eventually needs to establish confines as a sister not as a mother. I loved how the community came together to help Sophie in her hour of need, with Aiden missing a very important event to be by her side.

It was a very enjoyable believable story.  A heartwarming book by one of my favorite authors. 

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher and NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

Sounds like a fun easy ready. I've added it to my summer reading list (I tend to do all my reading during the summer). Thank you for sharing.
