Thank you to Little Brown for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review
This book really did give me warm fuzzy feelings, it is a beautiful story of love and books set in the magical city of Paris.
The Little Paris Bookshop is all about Jean Perdu who runs his charming bookshop or rather literary apothecary from his barge moored upon the Seine. He is a charming, enigmatic gentleman who genuinely cares about others and from his restored barge he meets people from every walk of life.
Through their choice or lack of choice of book he dishes out advice, some asked for, some not! He tries to help them usually in the form of a good book.
He lives in a soulless apartment where a closed off room reminds him painfully of a lost love who fled from his home twenty one years ago, his neighbours are colourful and many but when a new neighbour moves in she stirs up memories of his one true love that he just can't ignore and an attraction towards this woman that he wants to avoid.
Needing change in his life he cast sails with his barge and heads of to find answers to his past and present, of course his getaway does not go entirely smoothly as he gains a unwanted passenger.
This book was a joy to read, it's rich in atmosphere and well as I said it made me feel good, of course some of it is sad but there is something about the way Nina George has written this book which makes it feel like a warm hug if that makes sense!
A great read and one to add to your collection
