I am delighted to share my review today for The Little Bookshop at Herring Cove by Kellie Hailes. I read this book back in April and for some reason I have missed posting my review on here… still, better late than never!
Here is what it is all about…
The start of something wonderful…
Sophie Jones loves her little bookshop at Herring Cove. She’ll never give it up to big property developer, Alexander Fletcher – no matter how handsome he might be…
Yet beneath Alex’s sharp suit and persuasive manner, there’s something about him that makes Sophie want to trust him.
So when he offers to help make her little shop a success again, she wonders whether this could be the start of something wonderful for both Sophie and Alex – together?
Perfect for fans of Caroline Roberts, Cathy Bramley and Heidi Swain.

Alexander Fletcher is the son of a property developer, you know those that come into rundown seaside areas and revamp it into a modern resort. While Herring Cove is a little on the rundown side, it is nothing if it’s not a community. At it’s heart there are still a few shops and a pub, but it is hard for those businesses to keep going.
One of the businesses is the bookshop run by Sophie, while she does like the look of the man that stands before her, she does not fall for his charms and the generous offer he has to buy her business… well she doesn’t fall for him straight away.
Now I have never read anything by this author before and I have to say that my first outing was wonderful. I loved the sound of Herring Cove and I loved the characters in the story. This is a story that oozes heartwarming and feelgood as well as having quite a few sniggery moments, especially as the slight flirty but not supposed to be flirty comment litter this lovely story.
There is a story behind the bookshop and it has ramefications for Sophie and her on the “don’t need a man in my life” outlook. Alexander, well isn’t he a dark horse, and rather handy as well!
This is a lovely one sitting read, it was captivating and light to read but also had a nice feel to it, full of warmth, friends and laughs. Having not read this author before I cannot wait to read the other already published books, The Little Bookshop at Herring Cove is a book I would definitely recommend.
