What Are You Reading?
I'm a fourth of a way into Jenny Colgan's latest novel, The Bookshop on the Shore. It's set in the Scottish Highlands where Colgan took us for The Bookshop on the Corner. Single mother Zoe O'Connell is desperate to escape London where her rent is going up. She has a four-year-old who has never spoken. She accepts two jobs on the shores of Loch Ness. She's going to help Nina with her book van during the day, and she's an au pair at night. She and her son, Hari, have a place to stay, where she's going to take care of three young monsters whose mother disappeared. She's nanny #7.
I hope you've enjoyed a book or two this week. What are you reading, or what did you read this week?
