My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is a book about books. My favorite read.
Nina, simple library mouse, is out of job and is looking for a new place of employment. She loves books, knows everything about books, and collects so many books that she is being threatened to be evicted by her friend/landlord due to the amount of books Nina keeps bringing into the house. During her job search days she comes across an ad in the newspaper: used, big, old school van is being sold in Scotland. Nina gets an idea – she will turn a van into a bookstore on wheels and will become her own boss. And now she is on a mission to make her new dream come true. The idea is to go to Scotland, buy a van and bring it back home. However life is an interesting thing… everything goes opposite to Nina’s plan. Nevertheless, new life in Scotland becomes her very own fairy tale. Nina rents a beautiful barn/cottage to live in, business has a great start, she makes tons of great friends, learns more things about herself and of course Nina finds her very own prince Charming.
I would recommend this book to any booklover. It’s easy to read, great story, has some bitter parts as well. Very well written. I am looking forward to reading more of Jenny Colgan’s books.
