Review of The little Bookshop on The Seine by Rebecca Raisin - Four *


Le Vie En Rose
Bookshop owner Sarah Smith has been offered the opportunity to exchange bookshops with her new Parisian friend for 6 months! And saying yes is a no-brainer – after all, what kind of a romantic would turn down a trip to Paris…for Christmas?

Even if it does mean leaving the irresistible Ridge Warner behind, Sarah’s sure she’s in for the holiday of a lifetime – complete with all the books she can read!

Imagining days wandering around Shakespeare & Co, munching on croissants, sipping café au laits and watching the snow fall on the Champs-Élysées Sarah boards the plane.

But will her dream of a Parisian Happily-Ever-After come true? Or will Sarah realise that the dream of a Christmas fairytale in the city of love isn’t quite as rosy in reality…

A deliciously feel-good Christmas romance perfect for fans of Debbie Johnson and Julia Williams


What a lovely book! It's several years since I visited Paris, but it made me want to hop on the next Eurostar!

I love stand alone sequels and this was no exception! After Sarah and Ridge got together in The Bookshop on the Corner, I had assumed that was their HEA and that was that. But no, there was more to come!

Sarah and Sophie swap bookshops and Sarah ends up running a very busy store with staff coming and going all over the place! Money goes missing and profits are down.

I was as nervous and frustrated at Sarah as she muddled her way through. With Ridge becoming increasingly distant, she really was in her own.

She realises she has to change and pulls all the loose threads together. The ending is lovely, and solves a mystery at the same time!

Thank you Rebecca for a real feel-good Christmas tale!
