Enjoyed this one so much!
It’s so witty and love that she inherited a bookstore from her beloved grandma but she doesn’t really read. It has major sentimental value though.
And Jasper the author who is gorgeous but he’s a romance author. That’s points against him according to Drew.
Drew and Jasper’s romance was so sweet from start as just helping get to know the area to the end with the dual grand gestures.
Her father was trying to get the bookstore out from under her and just seemed like a horrible guy. But through his actions she was able to see what her Grandma had envisioned for her.
The grief of losing her grandma was so real and present and reading the authors note that she had lost her mother while writing. This must have been cathartic, it’s really hard losing someone who is like a parent or is a parent.
❓ Have you ever inherited anything?
I did not buy my grandparents had some saved for my college that helped.

Love isn’t always by the book in this charming romantic comedy about a bookseller discovering how to be the main character in her story.
As a self-proclaimed book hater and a firm believer that the movie is always better, Drew Young didn’t anticipate inheriting her grandma’s bookstore, the Book Nook. She’s in way over her head even before the shop’s resident book club, comprising seven of the naughtiest old ladies ever, begin to do what they do best—meddle.
Bestselling author Jasper Williams is a hopeless romantic. When he meets Drew at his Book Nook signing event, he becomes determined to show her the beauty of reading. He curates a book bucket list in exchange for her help exploring the local Denver scene for his current manuscript. From going river rafting to trying local restaurants, Drew begins to connect with Jasper in a way she only thought happened in fiction.
When messy family ties jeopardize the future of the Book Nook, Drew is caught between a bookshelf and a hard place. She’s reminded that real life isn’t always big dreams and sweeping romance. But Jasper is the plot twist she never saw coming and he’s writing a happily ever after just for them.
