Today’s feature is a book that has been languishing on my Kindle since June 2018: The Lost for Words Bookshop, by Stephanie Butland.
A book is a match in the smoking second between strike and flame.
Archie says books are our best lovers and our most provoking friends. He’s right, but I’m right, too. Books can really hurt you.
Teaser: He laughed. ‘No, I can’t go back to work, and neither can the man who hit me. We’ve had our justice.’
Synopsis: Loveday Cardew prefers books to people. If you look carefully, you might glimpse the first lines of the novels she loves most tattooed on her skin. But there are some things Loveday will never, ever show you.
Into her hiding place – the bookstore where she works – come a poet, a lover, and three suspicious deliveries.
Someone has found out about her mysterious past. Will Loveday survive her own heartbreaking secrets?
Would you keep reading? I know that I am intrigued.
