A grand baronial house on Loch Ness, a quirky small-town bookseller, and a single mom looking for a fresh start all come together in this witty and warm-hearted novel by New York Times bestselling author Jenny Colgan. Desperate to escape from London, single mother Zoe wants to build a new life for herself and her four year old son Hari. She can barely afford the crammed studio apartment on a busy street where shouting football fans keep them awake all night. Hari's dad, Jaz, a charismatic but perpetually broke DJ, is no help at all. But his sister Surinder comes to Zoe's aid, hooking her up with a job as far away from the urban crush as possible: a bookshop on the banks of Loch Ness. And there's a second job to cover housing: Zoe will be an au pair for three children at a genuine castle in the Scottish Highlands.  But while Scotland is everything Zoe dreamed of--clear skies, brisk fresh air, blessed quiet--everything else is a bit of a mess. The Urquart family castle is grand, but crumbling, the childrens' single dad is a wreck, and the kids have been kicked out of school and left to their own devices. Zoe has her work cut out for her, and is determined to rise to the challenge, especially when she sees how happily Hari has taken to their new home. With the help of Nina, the friendly local bookseller, Zoe begins to put down roots in the community. Are books, fresh air, and kindness enough to heal this broken family--and her own...?… (mer)

Desperate to escape from London, single mother Zoe wants to build a new life for herself and her son Hari. She can barely afford the crammed studio apartment on a busy street where honking horns and shouting football fans keep them awake all night. If she doesn’t find a way out soon, Zoe knows it’s just a matter of time before she has a complete meltdown. On a whim, she answers an ad for a nanny job in the Scottish Highlands, which is about as far away from the urban crush of London as possible. It sounds heavenly!

The job description asks for someone capable of caring for three “gifted children”, two of which behave like feral wolverines. The children’s widowed father is a wreck, and the kids run wild in a huge tumbledown castle on the heather-strewn banks of Loch Ness. Still, the peaceful, picturesque location is everything London is not—and Zoe rises to the challenges of the job.

With the help of Nina, the friendly local bookseller, Zoe begins to put down roots in the community. Are books, fresh air, and kindness enough to heal this broken family—and her own…? ( )

This one was an average chick-lit/romance that was only marginally about books, though they sounded like heavenly books in a library out of my dreams. The setting was the same as The Bookshop on the Corner, and a couple of characters from the first book play minor roles in this one, but otherwise the story is completely stand alone.

And it's ok. It's saved from complete mediocrity by a plot twist that was unexpected - at least by me; with my limited backlist of books in this genre, it's probably not hard to surprise me.

It was a diverting read, though not as good as The Book Charmer, whose strong sense of place kept interfering in my mind with the weaker one here; Perhaps I might have enjoyed this one more if it hadn't come on the tails of that more vividly written and charming book. ( )

Zoe is a single mom with a young child who doesn't speak. Needing a new job and a place to stay, she becomes a nanny to three problem children in Scotland. The house is a crumbling mansion, the father is a silent and brooding man, gone much of the time, and the housekeeper, unfriendly. Zoe is nanny number seven. In fact, that is what one of the children calls her. She also has a part time job selling books from a bookmobile. While she wonders what she has gotten herself into, she knows she really has nowhere else to go. This story is marvel in plot as well as character development. The people in the story really do seem like real people, with problems and quirks, likes and dislikes. Zoe must make decisions that will affect them all, often with little knowledge, relying on gut instinct and a lot of hope. Jenny Colgan excels at this type of story, and this one is certainly one of her better tales. ( )

A sequel to The Bookshop on the Corner, this one gets off to a depressing start with Zoe, Jaz, and their baby, Hari.

Though new characters have been added, the basic move-to-Scotland to increase self-confidence for a Happy Ending remains.

Extensive and evocative descriptions of changing weather, seasons, animals, books, and landscapes definitely keep the plot rolling
along until about 3/4 through when Zoe sets rules all around and things romantically begin to fall into place. ( )
