It is such a beautiful read and Loveday’s voice is so compelling . . . an exquisite story that I couldn’t put down.
What an absolute stunner of a book. I LOVED it and cried like a motherf***er. If you care about books (or humans) read it!
Loveday is a compelling character, you love her in the way you love a cat who always scratches but you love it anyway . . . this book is quirky, clever and unputdownable. I really enjoyed it.
Burns fiercely with love and hurt. A quirky, rare and beautiful novel, one you’d be delighted to unearth in any bookshop. And Loveday Cardew is a character who leaps from the pages into our hearts.
Loveday is so spiky and likeable. I so loved Archie, Nathan and the book shop and the unfolding mystery.
Loveday is a marvellous character and she captured my heart from the very first page . . . and her bookshop is the bookshop of readers’ dreams.
Beautifully written and atmospheric. Loveday is an endearing heroine, full of attitude and fragility. The haunting story of her past is brilliantly revealed.
