RachelMcDaniel5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent StoryFebruary 5, 2021RachelMcDanielQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Bookshop by the Sea features one of my favorite tropes- second chance
romance! Aiden and Sophie shared a history, but it didn't end well. So when Aiden returns for Sophie's sister's wedding, it's not rice in the air - but sparks! It was interesting to read about what drove them apart at the start and the obstacles that keep them from being together. They definitely weather storms - both in metaphorically and literally. Umm, a hurricane!
Also I absolutely LOVE when authors tie in characters from previous series and this book features one of my favorite heroes from another story. The author also didn't shy away from faith elements, but introduced them in an organic way that is heart-strengthening.

Jocelyn5 Stars Out Of 5Charming Contemporary RomanceJanuary 27, 2021JocelynQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Denise Hunter writes charming contemporary romance novels. Bookshop by the Sea is one to enjoy.
Aiden moved away after high school for an exciting job opportunity, and Sophie stays to care for her ailing mother and her two siblings. Sophie and her mother plan out the bookshop, and it's Sophie's plan to fulfil that dream. Enter Aiden, back for Sophie's sisters wedding after leaving Piper's Cove seven years prior.
A second chance at love despite wrestling with conflicts and abandonment issues. The characters are well developed and interesting. Although Sophie's siblings are always expecting her to drop everything and fulfil their need. It's a co-dependency that Sophie eventually needs to establish confines as a sister not as a mother. I loved how the community came together to help Sophie in her hour of need, with Aiden missing a very important event to be by her side.
It was a very enjoyable believable story. A heartwarming book by one of my favorite authors.
