Jessie’s Little Bookshop by the Sea – Kirsty Ferry / #Review @kirsty_ferry @ChocLituk

Tempest Sisters #3

Take a trip to the little bookshop by the sea … 
Jessie Tempest has two main interests: reading books and selling books. Her little bookshop in the seaside town of Staithes is a cosy hideaway from the chilly Yorkshire wind, but it’s also Jessie’s sanctuary from the outside world. 
When writer Miles Fareham and his son Elijah arrive to stay in the holiday apartment above the shop, it’s a test for Jessie who has always felt clueless when it comes to kids. But as she learns the story of the single father and the inquisitive eight-year-old, Jessie realises that first impressions aren’t always the right ones – and, of course, you can never judge a book by its cover! 



My review

A story about a bookshop by the sea … This is a must read for a beach loving bookaddict!

This book certainly gives you an appetite for more, much more. It was a rather short one and I really did not want it to end yet! 

It was beautiful to follow the changes in Jessie and Miles and how one’s view on life can make a u-turn. 

Elijah was sooo cute. I wanted to cuddle him too. 

Never say never because when the one comes along, you are lost and the way you pictured your future would be, goes out the window. Cupid knows no mercy 🙂 Once he has you in his sights, you go down and fall deeply in love.

A lovely, heartwarming story. 5 stars.

Thank you, Kirsty Ferry and Choc Lit.
