Cover image and synopsis from Goodreads:

Nina Redmond is a literary matchmaker. Pairing a reader with that perfect book is her passion… and also her job. Or at least it was. Until yesterday, she was a librarian in the hectic city. But now the job she loved is no more.

Determined to make a new life for herself, Nina moves to a sleepy village many miles away. There she buys a van and transforms it into a bookmobile—a mobile bookshop that she drives from neighborhood to neighborhood, changing one life after another with the power of storytelling.

From helping her grumpy landlord deliver a lamb, to sharing picnics with a charming train conductor who serenades her with poetry, Nina discovers there’s plenty of adventure, magic, and soul in a place that’s beginning to feel like home… a place where she just might be able to write her own happy ending.

This book was so much fun! Its premise is pretty much my fantasy: moving to rural Scotland to open my own bookshop!

The story and characters were so fun and charming, and I even liked the swoony romance. There were a couple of subplots that felt to me that they were a bit rushed in terms of their resolution, but for the most part I had the biggest smile on my face while I read.

I get so happy reading about people who love books and reading like I do, and this was just such a treat as a bookworm. Recommended!
