Who said that only real heroes could be found in fiction?

Sarah Smith had an addiction – she was addicted to romance novels. The meet-cute, the passion, the drama and the gorgeous men! Now this wouldn't have been such an issue if she hadn't been the owner of the only bookshop in Ashford, Connecticut.

Ever since her close friend Lil, from The Gingerbread Café, had become engaged she had been yearning for a little love to turn up in her life. Except Sarah knew a good man was hard to find – especially in a tiny town like Ashford. That was until New York journalist, Ridge Warner stepped into her bookshop…

Love could be just around the corner for Sarah, but will she be able to truly believe that happy-ever-after can happen in real-life too!

From the brilliant author of The Gingerbread Café trilogy don't miss this linked novella to get a sneak-peek at how Damon and Lil are getting on before the next book in the series - Coming October 2014!

Here's what

Fans are saying


This is a novella book lovers will undoubtedly fall in love with, just like I did.

It was easy to warm to Sarah, because I could recognise myself in her. I’d do anything to be the owner of an amazing book shop like the one described in this story; it sounds like such a wonderful place, heaven on earth for book lovers!

Rebecca Raisin’s descriptive writing style really made it easy for me to imagine everything in my head; not just the book shop, but the entire village and the cast of amazing characters. I loved Sarah’s friends, such as her best friend Missy, who runs the beauty salon in town, and CeeCee and Lils from the Gingerbread Cafe, and there’s also the handsome stranger, Ridge; I could completely understand why Sarah was swept off her feet by him!

Overall, ‘The Bookshop on the Corner’ is a simply charming, wonderful, quick read; a story which any chick lit/romance/book fan will certainly enjoy.



Well, this is the 2nd time this year I have been sucked into the picture perfect Ashford. The quaint town where not only can you find Lil and CeeCee at the Gingerbread Cafe. Supplying the delicious, sweet treats that had me practically drooling on to my iPad last time. Now we get to lose ourselves in Sarah Smiths bookstore. Chocolate and books are pretty much up the top of my favourite things list, so I'm now in my element moving on to Sarah's story.

Stepping in to the Bookstore is like stepping through the wardrobe and finding Narnia beyond the coats. It's another world within the walls of Sarah's Bookstore. Nothing like any Bookstores you find today when trawling shops. These are the magical gems that pop up once in a blue moon. All of the books in Sarah's store say so much. Not only do they tell their tales, they also talk of the people who once owned them. Sarah has an amazing way of knowing so much about a book, she can picture it's life before it was sitting on her shelf.

Just reading about this amazing bookstore with it's perfect setting and timeless inhabitants, would of been enough to keep me going for the entire story, but it's made all the more enticing in the form of Ridge. Just like the most coveted of book heroes. He's gorgeous, charming and incredibly interested in Sarah.

I absolutely love how when I read Rebecca's books, I seem to lose time. Her books are such a delightful, easy read. I get absorbed in to the book and when I look I'm almost finished. I do find myself never wanting them to end, and wish they were longer.

The characters and settings are truly addictive. If it's not chocolate and sweet treats it's books. How could anybody not become glued to the pages.

It's made more perfect by seeing some familiar faces from the previous books. The lovely Lil and CeeCee from the Gingerbread Cafe, with their wit and yummy treats to keep the light hearted atmosphere going. Also someone we get to see more of is Sarah's best friend, bubbly hairstylist Missy. A loyal and sweet friend who joins the others in wanting Sarah to find her Happy Ever After.
