    Books, food, romance, and Paris whatcan you want from a book This was such a fun story with a slight holiday vibe Rebecca Raisin brought the beauty of Paris to life with her descriptive writing and dazzling storytelling Sarah feels as though she is in a bit of a rut so when her friend Sophie who lives in Paris offers a book shop swap she jumps at the chance The city of lights, holiday time, and a book shop, it s a dream come true But has Sarah bitten offthan she can chew The bo Books, food, romance, and Paris whatcan you want from a book This was such a fun story with a slight holiday vibe Rebecca Raisin brought the beauty of Paris to life with her descriptive writing and dazzling storytelling Sarah feels as though she is in a bit of a rut so when her friend Sophie who lives in Paris offers a book shop swap she jumps at the chance The city of lights, holiday time, and a book shop, it s a dream come true But has Sarah bitten offthan she can chew The bookshop is busier than she expected, the staff is unreliable at best, and her boyfriend seems to be putting his job before traveling to Paris Will Sarah be able to find her inner strength and turn things around Sarah was a great character, but I did want to give the girl a major peptalk This book shop swap was not as advertised Sarah was doing her friend Sophie a favor and Sophie didn t seem to give her the knowledge she needed to be successful in this bustling hostile environment I am not certain if this is a French thing, but I cannot imagine working anywhere especially retail where people popped in and worked when they chose to There was no set schedule Just reading about it stressed me out Fortunately Sarah made some good friends that made this all a littlebearable As the book progressed the magic of Paris inhabited SarahandI loved her character development throughout the story The romance in this story was really in the background, this really wasabout Sarah becoming fierce I was glad of how things ended with Sarah and her boyfriend.Cute story, charming characters, books, and Paris The audiobook was narrated by Sally Scott I am pretty certain that she is British, so I am not certain why she was narrating a book that was primarily told from an American s perspective I mean if I had to speak in a British accent I m sure people would find all kinds of things wrong with it While her French accent I thought was brilliant, her American accent bothered me a bit She dropped her R s that drove me nuts, but did admittedly bother me less as the book went on This book in emojis Big thank you to Harlequin and Harper Audio for my gifted copy of this book All opinions are my own Forof my reviews and bookish thoughts please visit my blog

    Rebecca Raisin is rapidly becoming one of my favorite authors so this post is extra special You may recall that I read, reviewed and LOVED her book, Rosie s Traveling Tea Shop but that is simply my favorite among many of her books that I ve read Now added to that list of faves is Little Bookshop on the Seine I mean, who doesn t love a story set in both Paris and a bookstore Sarah owns her own little bookstore in a small town across the street from her best friend s cafe Readers of Rebec Rebecca Raisin is rapidly becoming one of my favorite authors so this post is extra special You may recall that I read, reviewed and LOVED her book, Rosie s Traveling Tea Shop but that is simply my favorite among many of her books that I ve read Now added to that list of faves is Little Bookshop on the Seine I mean, who doesn t love a story set in both Paris and a bookstore Sarah owns her own little bookstore in a small town across the street from her best friend s cafe Readers of Rebecca Raisin will recognize many of the characters in Little Bookshop, but this is Sarah s story and the first in the Paris series Sarah loves her store, her books arelike family than real people She has a handsome boyfriend who travels all over the world and Sarah is feeling a bit of that wanderlust herself Her life has become a bit too predictable When her online friend in Paris suggests a store swap, Sarah jumps at the chance, not really comprehending what she is getting herself into The fast paced life of a Parisian bookstore is a far cry from her very laid back store in Ashford Will Sarah be able to cut it or will she run back home to the safety of home and her friends I absolutely adored Sarah s story That feeling of restlessness is something of which I am very familiar I wanted her to be stronger, get it together quicker, but as the story unfolds, we are able to see that Sarah is growing and maturing in very wonderful ways This isthan just another cute cosy As with so many of Raisin s books, we see how women can rise to occasion when necessary and that within each of us is a strength we can call upon when needed I highly recommend Little Bookshop on the Seine and, although it takes place around the holidays, it is not a holiday book It is a marvelous introduction to a new series that is sure to be a great one

    Please note that I received this book via NetGalley This did not affect my rating or review.So this was just a so so romance read I usually am all over Christmas romance books, but this one was pretty lackluster The heroine Sarah Smith is a doormat for a good 3 4 of this book And it didn t help that Raisin threw in a side plot dealing with letters that were left behind that added nothing to the story I think the main problem is that the book at first reads as if this is a second book in a Please note that I received this book via NetGalley This did not affect my rating or review.So this was just a so so romance read I usually am all over Christmas romance books, but this one was pretty lackluster The heroine Sarah Smith is a doormat for a good 3 4 of this book And it didn t help that Raisin threw in a side plot dealing with letters that were left behind that added nothing to the story I think the main problem is that the book at first reads as if this is a second book in a romance series We hear very little details about Sarah s romance or her friends in Ashford because the author acts like readers should already know I think that is what ultimately threw me for a loop while reading this Since this is book one in this romance series, it s a shame that there was notbackstory added before moving the setting to Paris The Little Bookshop on the Seine follows bookstore owner Sarah Smith Sarah lives in the town of Ashford and loves her bookstore Business is slow though and now that her roving reporter boyfriend Ridge is dashing about trying to nail news stories, she feels stuck When her friend Sophie asks about switching lives and jobs for six months due to a romance gone wrong, Sarah initially hesitates, but then jumps at the chance Six months to be in Paris and to have romantic days and nights with Ridge is too much to resist Of course nothing goes right, and Sarah wonders if switching her job and life for six months was a bad idea.As I said above, Sarah is a doormat I was hoping that Raisin was going to have some magical realism elements due to at the beginning of the book she mentions how books talk to Sarah and how Sarah is able to pick up what books suit a potential owner We don t unfortunately get a lot of details about her romance with Ridge besides him calling her and trying to talk to her about what underwear is she wearing at any given time I was actually pretty disappointed with this romance, it just didn t seem to bethan them having sex with each other in between times when Ridge was traveling Sarah is also not a great boss The workers at the bookshop she encounters she is scared to really deal with for a long long time in the book Money goes missing along with a rare book and Sarah is scared she s going to cost Sophie her business I just got tired of reading about it again and again Sarah was overworked and tired through most of this book It s broken up here and there by her going out in Paris, but not by much I was pretty disappointed we didn t getscenes of her exploring Paris and all that it had to offer.The secondary characters are barely developed I thought We had a bookshop worker Oceane I think that was her name that seemed way too good to be true And then Sarah had to deal with a nasty one named Beatrice that she is too intimidated by most of the book.Sarah also it seems barely talks to her friends or her mother back home We just have her fretting about Ridge for most of the book when people ask her about where her lover is I am like Liz Lemon, the word lover bums me out.The writing I thought needed to be tightened up A lot The book started to feel very repetitive Also the months seemed to go by too fast and all of a sudden it was Christmas The flow was just up and down I think adding in that side plot of the letters that Sarah found and read with a random author she met added nothing to this book.I already mentioned that this book reads as if it s the second in a romance series, and it does The author acts as if you should know who everyone is and how Sarah met Ridge, etc It got aggravating after a while I felt like I missed a prequel or something When I went investigating I found that the stand alone book about Sarah before this was called The Bookshop on the Corner and is the first book in that series called Bookshop I don t know why Raisin spun off this character from the other series for this new one, but it just doesn t work for me The setting of Paris at times was well done, but this book could have taken place anywhere after a while since most of the book takes place in the bookshop and has Sarah dealing with nasty customers and or workers in the store I needed something uplifting to read about Heck, go explore the countryside, get some wine, something When I getof an experience of Paris by watching the Highlander series, the author has gone way off track The ending just kind of plops down and everyone gets a Happily Ever After
