Product Description

Who said that only real heroes could be found in fiction?

Sarah Smith had an addiction – she was addicted to romance novels. The meet-cute, the passion, the drama and the gorgeous men! Now this wouldn’t have been such an issue if she hadn’t been the owner of the only bookshop in Ashford, Connecticut.

Ever since her close friend Lil, from The Gingerbread Café, had become engaged she had been yearning for a little love to turn up in her life. Except Sarah knew a good man was hard to find – especially in a tiny town like Ashford. That was until New York journalist, Ridge Warner stepped into her bookshop…

Love could be just around the corner for Sarah, but will she be able to truly believe that happy-ever-after can happen in real-life too!

Thanks to the publisher for providing me with a free copy of this book from NetGalley.

What a cosy read! I'm loving the Gingerbread Cafe series and this third book didn't disappoint. Old favourites Lil and CeeCee appear once again, with glamorous, kindhearted hairdresser Missy. And now we follow the life of Sarah, the unassuming bookshop owner, who loves her small-town existence in Ashford. Whilst wistful about meeting a man to match Harlequin's romantic heroes, she doesn't foresee her future as a singleton bookworm changing - not until hotshot New York journalist Ridge arrives.

Raisin writes with a real warmth that makes this book feel like a cosy reward, after a hard day - a bit like one of the flavoursome, steaming drinks sold by Lil and CeeCee. The writing is beautiful at times, full of appealing imagery. The characters are distinct and ooze compassion and humour.

This story is a real treat for bibliophiles who will enjoy Sarah's descriptions of her wonderful shop and books.

Sarah Smith reminded me a lot of myself. I have always wanted to open a small bookstore and this story has refueled my passion to do so as well as given me a few ideas! I fell in love with the characters and the town and even though it was a short story, I felt the great connections between friends and the welcoming atmosphere when Ridge joined the group. Really made me miss small town life!

I absolutely ADORED this novella and am greatly looking forward to going back and reading the first two Gingerbread Cafe stories! It is not necessary to read the prior books as this one focuses primarily on a different couple's story.

Thank you to Rebecca for such a sweet story and to CarinaUK for publishing!

o work in an industry you love and creating a feel of warmth and relation inthat business is not an easy task to achieve. Sarah managed to do just that.
I loved the way Rebecca Raisin mentioned other characters from 'Christmas at the Gingerbread Cafe' and 'Chocolate Dreams at the Gingerbread Cafe' so I could keep up to date with their lives.
After reading all the novellas in this series I find myself wanting to visit Ashford to see the quaint stores and meet everyone.
The beauty of small towns is how they bond together to ensure all businesses thrive...why do they do's simple really, they're all smart business people who realise they all need each other to survive.
Geralds explanation of his wifes (Gloria) book collection sang to my heart. When Gerald told Sarah Gloria had passed away and he kept reading the last book she read out loud as if she was there with him brought tears to my eyes.
I have to mention here of Mary-Rose and her little shop fitted with home made candles and bath bombs, if it was possible for what you are reading to omit a sence of smell this novella did exactly that.
I loved Ridge's banter with Sarah. Could Ridge be hr dream guy...not if she kept writing a book in her head in the negative he won't be.
When CeeCee told Sarah people had long distance relationships via Spacebook I actually laughed out loud. At one stage I felt as if I was sitting with CeeCee, Missy, Lil and Sarah eating Chocolate Truffels, drinking gingierbread coffee and chatting. I found myself going from laughing to crying to wonder to smiling.
Does Sarah and Ridges relationship last after what she thought Ridge had done. You will have to read 'The Bookshop on the Corner' to find out.

This gorgeous novella had me at the word Bookshop!
Rebecca Raisin has the ability to transport a reader to another place and to immerse them in her plot and the lives of her characters. I’d go as far as stating that her writing has a magical quality and when I’ve read one of her books, I feel like I’m under a very pleasant spell. ;-)
This novella perfectly captures what it is to be an avid reader, to respect and love the written word and to savour the excitement of entering a bookshop and marvelling at the wealth of books that it houses. I empathised completely with the heroine Sarah Smith and know that if I had a bookshop of my own, I would find it hard to be anywhere else, even to the extent of going to work early just to sneak in a read while the town outside lies still and sleeping.
In The Book Shop on the Corner, the reader is taken to Ashford, Connecticut, the site of the other books in the Gingerbread Café series - Christmas at the Gingerbread Café and Chocolate Dreams at the Gingerbread Café. It’s a wonderful place to be.
Sarah Smith is sweet, quiet and lacking in self-confidence. She has a close circle of female friends but she is missing the man to prove to her that the typical Mills and Boon hero does, in fact, exist. She runs a bookshop that I now long to visit, so that I can sit in the reading room and snuggle up in front of the fire with a book and a mug of coffee and just let the world carry on outside.
When New York journalist Ridge Warner stepped into the plot, I just started to drool. Seriously! This man is HOT! There is a fabulously funny scene at a dinner party which I won’t spoil for you, other than to say that it involves Ridge’s man crease and Sarah’s imagination…and her tongue. I was right there with her!
