“Scenes from a Country Bookshop” Review

Hello Friends!

Happy Sunday! I’m very excited today because I have accomplished my goal for Camp NaNoWriMo and I’m two chapters away to finish my novel. I will make a post about it in the future.

Nevertheless, I had to come here and share the final review of a series surrounded by books, and if don’t know what I’m talking about, you can check the others here: “The Book Lovers” Review, “Rules for a Successful Book Club” Review“Natural Born Readers” Review.

Scenes from a Country Bookshop“, written by Victoria Connelly, is a Women’s Fiction novel, the third book in the Book Lovers Series, published on November 6th 2019 by Notting Hill Press.

I want to thank Rachel, at Rachel’s Random Resources, and Victoria Connelly for the eCopy of this book, and for allowing me to join in the fun and being a part of the blog tour with my honest review of the book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

The Book Lovers Series


Scenes from a Country Bookshop CoverJosh Nightingale has always been married to his books. Happy to run his bookshop in the small town of Castle Clare, he’s never really had time for romance and truly believes that he’s never going to fall in love. But, when April Channing opens a new shop opposite his, everything changes.

Sweet and attentive one moment, abrupt and aloof the next, Josh really can’t understand April at all. What exactly is going on? Josh is pretty sure that the answer can’t be found in a book.

My Review

“Scenes from a Country Bookshop” is the forth book in the series and I must say I immediately read it after the third one, I just couldn’t wait to go go back to Castle Clare and follow Victoria Connelly’s amazing world, as well as, of course, the amazing Nightingale family.

This story is about Josh Nightingale and April Channing. Quite an interesting couple that ended up complementing each other well. They were both complex and intriguing characters that I enjoyed knowing more about. Plus, going on the journey to learn all April’s secrets was exciting as well.

P1070883It was fun reading about this family and I’m quite sad that there are no other books to enjoy. As many people may know, if they have read previous reviews, I have a big family, lot’s of cousins and uncles/aunts. Every time I read about the Nightingale family I felt as if I was catching up with my own family. All because I felt connected to them.

Overall, loved it as much as the other novels. It was as unique as the previous ones, it made fascinating with all the revelations and all the little details in the relationships, the characters interactions and the plot.

I do hope it’s not the end of this series, because I would definitely love to go back to this small town and have fun with the Nightingale family again. So, if the synopsis and genre intrigues you, then I have to say to go for it and read the entire series.
