Kelly | 802 comments In The Little Paris Bookshop, Jean owns a boat that has been turned into a bookstore. He is excellent on judging what type of books will make his customers feel better and solve their problems. However, he is not good at doing this for himself. He has not moved on from when a women he loved left him 21 years earlier. He also had not looked at a letter she sent him afterwards; this note was recently rediscovered and Jean finally reads it. Afterwards he is suddenly motivated to find closure regarding this past relationship and takes off in the boat to do this. A young author, Max, comes with him and a few other unique characters join them along the way.

What I enjoyed most about The Little Paris Bookstore was how the author, Nina Rogers, relayed people's feelings. Rogers beautifully describes guilt, loneliness and loss. She understands some characters' time needed to move on; and we see their transitions and how they develops bonds. And I especially liked the importance of books and that references to them were included throughout the story.

We had the same opinion at our bookclub.
