I’m Jim McKeown, welcome to Likely Stories, a weekly review of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and biographies.
Once again, I found myself in the web of one of my favorite genres: novels set in and around a bookstore. If you think these are all copy-cat stories, you are in for a surprise. So far, all that I have read have a variety of situations, characters, and love. According to the biography in the paperback copy, Victoria Henry worked as a scriptwriter before turning to fiction. She lives with her family in North Devon, England. Her novel, How to find Love in a Bookshop is a wonderful story.
