Having been let go from her retail job, Carmen finds herself in a tight financial spot with limited options. The idea of spending Christmas with her seemingly flawless sister, Sofia, in her immaculate house, surrounded by her ideal children and orderly suburban lifestyle, is far from appealing.
Sofia, on her part, isn't too keen on having her somewhat difficult sister Carmen around either. Yet, with a new baby on the way, a mother eager to see her daughters reconcile, and a client in need of help to rejuvenate his old bookshop, Sofia invites Carmen to stay and work.
Carmen reluctantly finds herself involved in the day-to-day of Mr. McCredie's old bookshop, nestled in the quaint streets of historic Edinburgh. The shop, though cluttered and needing a tidy up, has its own allure. Carmen wonders if she can inject some vitality into it before the Christmas rush. Things take an interesting turn when a renowned, charming author shows an unexpected interest in both the bookshop and Carmen. Amidst these developments, will the holiday season bring some healing to her strained family ties?
1) I’ve read lots of Jenny Colgan’s books because I like her sweet, funny writing style. The Christmas Bookshop is set in an antiquarian bookstore in Edinburgh. Loved the characters in this one, especially the eccentric bookstore owner.— because...cat (@Dorothy14213) September 24, 2023
