So Peter and Ainsley are going to have some major explaining to do if they think Santa 🎅 is going to be visiting this year!! 😂 I mean these two are like crazy means crazier!!

The Christmas Bookshop by Jenny Colgan

 Perfect for the holidays! A brand-new heartwarming Christmas novel from the beloved New York Times bestselling author of The Bookshop on the Corner and Christmas at the Island Hotel.  

Laid off from her department store job, Carmen has perilously little cash and few options. The prospect of spending Christmas with her perfect sister Sofia, in Sofia’s perfect house with her perfect children and her perfectly ordered yuppie life does not appeal.

Frankly, Sofia doesn’t exactly want her prickly sister Carmen there either. But Sofia has yet another baby on the way, a mother desperate to see her daughters get along, and a client who needs help revitalizing his shabby old bookshop. So Carmen moves in and takes the job. 

Thrown rather suddenly into the inner workings of Mr. McCredie’s ancient bookshop on the picturesque streets of historic Edinburgh, Carmen is intrigued despite herself. The store is dusty and disorganized but undeniably charming. Can she breathe some new life into it in time for Christmas shopping? What will happen when a famous and charismatic author takes a sudden interest in the bookshop—and Carmen?  And will the Christmas spirit be enough to help heal her fractured family?

My Thoughts 

I can't think of a better way to get into the Christmas spirit than with this book! This book was like a warm cup of cocoa on a cold day! It just gave me that fuzzy feeling that I can't get enough of during the holidays.

A bookstore, a story of starting over? Umm yes please! If that wasn't enough- let's throw in a good boy- bad boy love triangle! Sign this girl up! 

When Carmen finds herself with no job, no man and no plan...Well she decides she has nothing to lose by moving in with her very pregnant sister and helping her out. Little does she realize that it will lead to her trying to save a lovely but rundown bookshop.

I absolutely loved the dynamics at play between the characters! Filled full of some of my favorite things...books, Christmas and a little drama! What was not to love? Will Carmen save the day? Will she choose naughty or nice? My lips are sealed!

Huge shoutout to my Partner Bibliolifestyle and William Morrow for my gifted copy!
