My Review: I fully enjoyed this light hearted and love filled book. We follow Luna and her friend Gigi on their travels to Venice. Being a free spirit, raised all over the place in communes etc, Lunas urge to find her roots is strong, in honour of her mother Ruby. Looking to bring the past into the present, she takes a job in the local book store which is stunning and sadly, not bringing in the good money. Giancarlo, the owner is a rather grumpy sort and the store has become a bit of a mess. Luna and Oscar compete for the job. There’s a a lovely spiritual element in the book that spoke to me. I wasn’t quite convinced by the communal living though. A wonderful escape that warms the heart. Recommended. Sorry for the delay in getting this blog out, I had been ill and life took over.

The Little Venice Bookshop

A bundle of mysterious letters. A trip to Venice. A journey she’ll never forget.

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?
