The Little Paris Bookshop: A Novel by Nina George

First Book of the Year!

    My friend Kelli read this on an eight-hour flight home and she texts me saying I would love it and she is so right. This author is new to me and after this I am a big fan! Monsieur Perdu owns a floating bookstore aboard a barge located on the Seine. With his bookstore he can prescribe just the perfect book to dispel someone’s fears, problems, and social anxieties. That is with one exception himself. Twenty-one years earlier the love of his life left him and left him only a letter, which he never read because he came across it twenty-one years later and has lived with his heartbreak ever since. He finally reads the long-lost letter and sets sail for the south of France with a young, famous author on board, who is hiding from his fame and looking for inspiration for his next book. Then once on their travels they pick up an Italian chef. The journey these men partake in is described as both internal and external experience, sometimes together, sometimes apart. Believe me you will be touched by their journey.

    This novel is enchanting, warm, and filled with memorable characters. There are so many beautiful literary quotes in this book anyone who loves to read will be delighted by it, not to mention the wonderful quotes about the power of reading. Further the French countryside is alive and beautiful as rendered by George. She is a wonderful wordsmith. I can see why my friend read this in eight hours it draws you in and holds you there and the pictures that are drawn with this tale will stay with me for a lifetime. Highly recommended and will read again.

Genuine Fraud
Genuine Fraud I confess. I’m one of those people. I judge a book by it’s cover. Well, in a good way of course! If the cover appeals to me then I will read the blurb and see if the story appeals as well. That was the case with Genuine Fra...
