If you’re a fan of a bookish kind of read, A Bookshop Christmas, by Rachel Burton is a cute pick for the holiday season.
After Megan loses her husband, she moves from London to NYC and works in her parent’s old bookshop. Not ready to move on from the loss, the grieving widow keeps to herself and her close circle of family and friends. When she unexpectedly runs into Xander Stone (a prize winning author), she realizes she might be ready to take a new step forward.
I really wanted a holiday romance when I picked this one up. What I got was a lot different than what I expected. The romance was definitely there, but the Christmas was lacking. The holiday was really more of just a backdrop to the story itself. This story has more of a bookish feel than it does Christmas, so if that’s your jam you might really love this one.
This was a super sweet, clean romance. A slow burn with no steaminess, but a lot of emotion. For the most part, the characters were likable. I didn’t really have any emotional investment in neither the plot nor the characters, but enjoyed the story overall. I wish it it would’ve been more of a “holiday” book, but that’s my fault for not doing the research. A really cute story for what it is!
3 out of 5 stars.
