Think Willy Wonka but you win a bookshop instead of a chocolate factory mixed with the mystery of A Series of Unfortunate Events, and you get The Bookshop Girl.
Property Jones and her family own a small cute bookshop and on a whim enter a contest to win the Montgomery Book Emporium. They know books so who better to run the best bookshop in London.
What I liked about it: magic, Property herself, the bookstore cat, lots and lots of vivid book descriptions and the happy ending.
There wasn't anything I didn't like except that I wished it was way longer, but it is right on target for elementary readers.
I see some reviews from 2017, so maybe this was picked up by a new publisher or something, but the book I read will be in stores October 1, 2018
Please note that I received a free advance E ARC of this book from Edelweiss+ without a review requirement or any influence regarding review content should I choose to post a review. Apart from that, I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.
