Fun story with an irresistible protagonist, told from the point of view of a lady who falls in love with him, and suffused with a love of books and reading. The sequel, The Haunted Bookshop, is better still. Read full review

What a cute, funny little love story. I loved Helen and Roger and I'm very excited to find out that this is a sort of prequel and I get to read more about them. Read full review
