The Last Book Shop – Emma Young

The Last Book Shop – Emma Young

A friend lent this to me – isn’t the cover photo great? I am going to have to visit that book shop – I believe it’s in Fremantle.

Another friend describes books as ‘spacers’ and that was what this one was for me. A nice interlude between more meaty books.

It was set in Perth and it is always nice to read about places you know.

Here’s the blurb …

Cait is a bookshop owner and book nerd whose social life revolves around her mobile bookselling service hand-picking titles for elderly clients, particularly the grandmotherly June. After a tough decade for retail, Book Fiend is the last bookshop in the CBD, and the last independent retailer on a street given over to high-end labels. Profits are small, but clients are loyal. When James breezes into Book Fiend, Cait realises life might hold more than her shop and her cat, but while the new romance distracts her, luxury chain stores are circling Book Fiend’s prime location, and a more personal tragedy is looming.

There is romance and nice bookish talk. If you like books about books and book stores, then this is for you.

Here is the goodreads page where there are a lot of great reviews
