The Little Shop of Happy-Ever-After by Jenny Colgan.

Given a back-room computer job when the beloved Birmingham library she works in turns into a downsized retail complex, Nina misses her old role terribly – dealing with people, greeting her regulars, making sure everyone gets the right books for their needs. Then a new business nobody else wants catches her eye: owning a tiny little bookshop bus up in the Scottish highlands. No computers. Shortages. Out all hours in the freezing cold; driving with a tiny stock of books… not to mention how the little community is going to take to her, particularly when she stalls the bus on a level crossing…

I didn’t like this book …… I LOVED IT !

This book was amazing , I could totally relate to Nina, being the bookworm that I am. The part about how her brothers used to tease Nina for reading so much, that was me being teased by my sisters when I was younger and they still don’t understand my love of reading to this day, although I do think they would understand if they read this book.

This book was so easy to get into and the storyline flowed so well, I found myself envying Nina when she started the book van, I would love to do something like this ….. Maybe one day I will. This book is about following your dreams and your heart.

The characters in this book were really well written and easy to remember who was who. I especially liked the reference about a woman who ran a bakery from a van at the beginning (Polly!).All the settings in this book were well described so that I could envision them.

Wel done Jenny on another excellent book, I hope to read more about Nina in a sequel ?
