This book was a surprise favorite!
Both delightfully charming and quirky I couldn't put this one down! Who wouldn't love a book that centers around a bookstore? My guess is no one. That's why it's been a crowd pleaser on the New York Times Bestsellers List.
I happened to pick this selection up at Barnes and Noble's just because and am so glad I did!
Now this is part of the Cobbled Court series. Of course I didn't choose the first in the series. That would be too much like doing the logical thing. Not to worry. The author gives you enough background on the characters so that you can easily pick it up. The main draw for me with this novel is the main character is left an inheritance of a derelict cottage that she transforms into an inn. Delightful!
We all love a good interior design book and there are a plethora(I don't get to use that word much!)of choices out now.
The Bee Cottage Story
How I made a muddle of Things and Decorated My Way Back to Happiness
By Frances Schultz.
I know you all remember Frances and the wonderful column she wrote for House Beautiful back in the day. And even if somehow that doesn't ring a bell I'd bet my bottom dollar that you remember her adorable kitchen.
with all the blue and white
Any who it's a great read. Part gorgeous interiors part memoir.
I've really enjoyed this book
Paige Schnell's interiors are often times hard to describe but undeniably beautiful. Part traditional but on the other hand modern, clean lines but cozy. I have gone over this one with a fine tooth comb!
