Christmas Review: Christmas Bookshop

Carmen's been working in a department store, but when it closes for good, she has no plans for the future. After much discussion, she goes to live with her sister in Scotland. Her sister finds her a job. Carmen's grateful but she and her sister have never had a great relationship. Her sister's always been the perfect one.

Sofia isn't interested in hosting her younger sister either. Carmen has always been difficult. But she has a client with a bookstore who could use some help. And with another baby on the way and her husband traveling for work, she could use some help too. 
My Thoughts: This started off slow, but I really enjoyed getting to know both sisters. I loved "walking" in Edinburgh, and it made me want to visit. Of course, I loved the moments in the bookstore - from the decor to the events to the inventory. Sofia's children were entertaining and quirky - they made me laugh. The nanny was horrible, and I enjoyed watching her spar with Carmen. The romance plot rounded out the book nicely.
