Synopsis

The Little Shop of Happy-Ever-After by Jenny Colgan

Given a back-room computer job when the beloved Birmingham library she works in turns into a downsized retail complex, Nina misses her old role terribly - dealing with people, greeting her regulars, making sure everyone gets the right books for their needs. Then a new business nobody else wants catches her eye: owning a tiny little bookshop bus up in the Scottish highlands. No computers. Shortages. Out all hours in the freezing cold; driving with a tiny stock of books...not to mention how the little community is going to take to her, particularly when she stalls the bus on a level crossing...

Reviews

'This sunny read will make you feel drenched in vitamin D until the real thing comes along... There are lots of books about women moving to the country and starting again, but Colgan's fishing village feels real, the characters are funny and the dilemmas genuine.' Cosmopolitan

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
