The Novel Bookstore by Laurence Cosse

A Novel Bookstore was so completely amazing and fantastic, I can’t even begin to describe… Okay I’ll try.

So at the beginning, it’s a little crazy because these 3 completely unrelated people have some weird stuff happen to them and I was all like WHUH? but then, it all started to come together and the whole thing just took off. The three people are actually all members of a secret committee. But no one knows how the attackers know that they are on this committee. So the people in charge of the committee go to the police and then the whole story comes out. And it’s a doozy.

These two dreamers decided to open their dream bookstore, with only their favorite kinds of books in it. Only novels. Only good novels. Now, let’s stop right there for a second. What would your dream bookstore have in it? Well, for one, mine would have more than just novels, because I like non-fiction, too, but hey. Whatevs. I thought about this while I was reading this book and I realized that any bookstore can be my dream bookstore. If it has books in it that I dislike, I ignore them. It’s like they aren’t there. I only pick up the ones I’m interested in. As far as I’m concerned the store only has “good books”. And if it doesn’t have what I’m looking for, I’m sure they will order it, just like the store in the book.

Anyway, back to the book. Luckily, one of the dreamers in the book comes equipped with a large inheritance she is willing to spend on opening the store. This being France, the store is a HYOOGE success. But within 6 months, someone is raining on their parade. Who? Why? What the Heck?

Being a French novel, it isn’t all sunshine and roses all the way through, but it is a fantastic book and I absolutely LURVED it!!
