Today is the Mondayest Monday ever. Hallie Winstone has been fired – and it wasn’t even her fault!

Having lost her job and humiliated herself in front of a whole restaurant full of diners, this is absolutely, one hundred percent, the worst day of her life.

That is until she receives an email announcing that she is the lucky winner of the Once Upon a Page Bookshop!

Owning a bookshop has always been Hallie’s dream, and when she starts to find secret love letters on the first pages of every book, she knows she's stumbled across something special.

Things get even better when she meets gorgeous, bookish Dimitri and between them, they post a few of the hidden messages online, reuniting people who thought they were lost forever.

I always say that Jaimie Admans’ stories are like sunshine in book form, and The Little Bookshop of Love Stories is no different. This book is sweet, laugh-out-loud funny, romantic, and just an overall delight. The world feels like it’s going to hell in a handbasket at the moment, and this book was a much-needed escape. I started giggling on the first page, and I had a giant, goofy grin on my face almost the entire time I was reading.

Hallie can’t seem to win; she has terrible luck and she’s clumsy to boot. But her luck changes suddenly when she wins - yes, wins - her favourite local bookshop. The store is in dire need of updating and organizing, and its finances are in pretty rough shape, but Hallie’s book-loving heart is happy, and she’s determined to turn the shop around. I loved Hallie’s perseverance, humour, and creativity. It’s always been a secret dream of mine to own a bookstore, and this book made me feel like I was right there with Hallie, helping her make improvements in the shop and figuring out how to make it succeed.

Then there’s Dimitri...ahh, Dimitri. *heart eyes* Jaimie always writes the best heroes; they’re sweet and swoony and aren’t afraid to show their softer, more vulnerable side, which is such a refreshing change from the oh-so-popular alpha-hole trend. Dimitri was adorable, quirky, and smart, and his sensitivity and kindness made me long to hug him as often as Hallie wanted to. I loved that these two found kindred spirits in each other; they were two misunderstood book lovers who were both clumsy and had bad luck, who found comfort and companionship in each other and lit each other up. Their banter made me giggle and grin, and I swooned so hard as they began falling for each other.

The Little Bookshop of Love Stories
is like a love letter to books. I have no doubt Hallie and Dimitri’s deep love of books will both charm and resonate with fellow book lovers. If you’re looking to get swept up in a magical, whimsical romance, look no further. Be prepared to fall head over heels (or arse over tit!) in love with The Little Bookshop of Love Stories.
