The Lost and Found Bookshop

Morrow. Jul. 2020. 368p. ISBN 9780062914095. $27.99. F
After her mother dies in a plane crash, Natalie Harper leaves her predictable job and life in Sonoma Valley to take care of her ailing grandfather and her mother’s San Francisco bookshop. Unfortunately, the building is crumbling, the bills aren’t being paid, the taxes are in arrears, and her grandfather’s health is worse than she knew. However, Natalie feels more alive than she has in years and doesn’t hate her job, so she vows to make it all work out. Wiggs (The Oysterville Sewing Circle) hits another home run with a heady mix of women’s fiction and romance. Her sophisticated prose filled with quaint book and author quotes tells the delightful tale of an accidental, reluctant bookshop owner, her beautiful yet unconventional family, and the historic San Francisco building they’ve lived and worked in for over a century.
VERDICT An unputdownable, true book lover’s book that fans of women’s fiction, slow-burning romance, and the novels of Nora Roberts and Kristin Hannah will love. [See Prepub Alert, 12/16/19.]
