Recensioner

Almost the exact same book as The Bookshop on the Corner that I recently read. Cute premise but ultimately unsatisfying. Characters were nice but if the author wanted to turn it into a romance give me some romance! I think the minor characters were more interesting than the main characters. It's not terrible but like the 2 star rating "just ok"

A sweet book about small town America, letters, books and love. I might have rated this a bit higher but it took me awhile to get through it which made it seem a little disjointed.

Sara is from Sweden and has been writing letters to Amy in Broken Wheel Iowa for a while now. They share a love of books and reading. When Sara decides to visit Amy, she arrives to find that Amy has passed away! But the townspeople in this small town know all about Sara coming to visit and are very welcoming to this (their only) tourist! They invite her to stay and won’t even let her pay for anything. It gets to a point where Sara is bored and decides to open a bookstore (which is not allowed on her visa, but she is not being paid, either; she just wants something to do).

I listened to the audio and this was ok. Pretty slow moving and I did lose focus at points so didn’t fully follow some of the townspeople’s activities and even missed who some of the people were. The book references were fun, and it’s a cute story.

Sara began a friendship with Amy discussing and trading books through letters. When Amy invites Sara to come to Broken Wheel, Iowa, from Sweden, for a holiday, Sara agrees. However, when Sara arrives, she finds that Amy has died. The town, however, has been instructed by Amy to welcome Sara and treat her kindly. Sara feels like she knows the town and the people through Amy's letters. The townspeople also seem to know Sara.
Sara tries to fit in, and eventually decides to open a bookstore in the vacant town. As her visitor visa is going to expire, the town comes up with a scheme to allow her to stay.
Sweet, heartwarming.
