Blog tour: The Little Venice Bookshop

Welcome to the blog tour for The Little Venice Bookshop by Rebecca Raisin!

More about the book…

When Luna loses her beloved mother, she’s bereft: her mother was her only family, and without her Luna feels rootless. Then the chance discovery of a collection of letters in her mother’s belongings sends her on an unexpected journey.

Following a clue in the letters, Luna packs her bags and heads to Venice, to a gorgeous but faded bookshop overlooking the canals, hoping to uncover the truth about her mother’s mysterious past.

Will Luna find the answers she’s looking for – and finally find the place she belongs?

More about the author…

Rebecca Raisin writes heartwarming romance from her home in sunny Perth, Australia. Her heroines tend to be on the quirky side and her books are usually set in exotic locations so her readers can armchair travel any day of the week. The only downfall about writing about gorgeous heroes who have brains as well as brawn, is falling in love with them – just as well they’re fictional. Rebecca aims to write characters you can see yourself being friends with. People with big hearts who care about relationships and believe in true, once in a lifetime love. Her bestselling novel Rosie’s Travelling Tea Shop has been optioned for film with MRC studios and Frolic Media.

My impressions…

Ok, I must admit that it would have been hard for this novel to disappoint me. I am not familiar with this author’s work, but you throw some romance, a bookshop and Venice in a book and I am probably going to love it! And I did! It wasn’t just the list of ‘ingredients’ that made this recipe successful, though, it was also how they were combined. The writing is beautiful, the characters well-developed and there is a lot of depth to what at first might appear to be a light summer read. More, please!

Three words to describe it. Atmospheric. Delightful. Sunny.

Do I like the cover? It is unbelievably cute!

Have I read any other books by the same author? No, but I’m going to change that soon!
