Book Tour: The Bookshop On The Corner - Rebecca Raisin

Who said that only real heroes could be found in fiction?

Sarah Smith had an addiction – she was addicted to romance novels. The meet-cute, the passion, the drama and the gorgeous men! Now this wouldn’t have been such an issue if she hadn’t been the owner of the only bookshop in Ashford, Connecticut.

Ever since her close friend Lil, from The Gingerbread Café, had become engaged she had been yearning for a little love to turn up in her life. Except Sarah knew a good man was hard to find – especially in a tiny town like Ashford. That was until New York journalist, Ridge Warner stepped into her bookshop…

Love could be just around the corner for Sarah, but will she be able to truly believe that happy-ever-after can happen in real-life too!

My opinion.
What a lovely read. Sarah is such a wonderful MC. It's so nice to read from the book lover's perspective and to recognize some of your own reading habits. I wished the book was a little bit longer, so I would have - I think - connected a bit more to the characters. I felt there was still more to learn about Sarah and Ridge, individual and as a couple. I didn't really "believe" their romance. That probably sounds a bit harsh, but I think I would have enjoyed The Bookshop On The Corner even more with a little extra character- dept. 
That being sad, I'm excited to return to Ashford and get to know Sarah's friends at the Gingerbread café! This is definitely not the last Rebecca Raisin book I'll read.
