Book Review: The Little Bookshop on the Seine By Rebecca Seine


Bookshop owner Sarah Smith has been offered the opportunity to exchange bookshops with her new Parisian friend for 6 months! And saying yes is a no-brainer – after all, what kind of a romantic would turn down a trip to Paris? Even if it does mean leaving the irresistible Ridge Warner behind, Sarah’s sure she’s in for the holiday of a lifetime – complete with all the books she can read!

Picturing days wandering around Shakespeare & Co, munching on croissants, sipping café au laits and people-watching on the Champs-Elysees Sarah boards the plane. But will her dream of a Parisian Happily-Ever-After come true? Or will Sarah realise that the dream isn’t quite as rosy in reality…


Loved this one.

Sadly I had to read this one as a PDF so it took me forever. I feel as if the format you are reading on really makes an impact on your reading. I would have enjoyed this novel a lot more in a different format.

This was a cute read that captures my attention from the beginning and with the fantastic and romantic location of Paris. Struggling shop owner Sarah has the opportunity to swap with her friend in Paris. So they do exactly that.

To be honest throughout the novel I did not think Ridge and Sarah’s relationship would last but they proved me wrong.

I really enjoyed the description elements of the city however I did think it was a bit stereotypical presuming all French people are rude because the ones that worked in the shop in Paris where portrayed that way.

Apart from that, this was an enjoyable read with charming characters, a love of books and romance with the beautiful location of Paris.

4/5 Stars
