In small-town Connecticut, Sarah Smith’s bookshop is struggling. As quiet and peaceful as Ashford is, her business has become a little too quiet. Despite her wonderful group of friends, Sarah feels stuck, and her mostly long-distance relationship with freelance journalist Ridge has become increasingly distant as he is constantly called away on stories. When offered the chance for a bookshop exchange with her friend Sophie, Sarah has no trouble saying yes. The best part – it’s in Paris.
Sarah heads to the City of Love full of dreams of exploring hidden avenues, popping into cafés, and taking in the sights between shifts at a gorgeous historical bookshop. However, she quickly realizes she is in for more culture shock than she anticipated. Overwhelmed by the bustle of the shop, the magnitude of responsibilities, and her lack of experience as an authority figure, Sarah struggles to keep the shop and her staff under control – all while adjusting to big city life. However, Sarah is determined to make the most of her Parisian adventure.
Rebecca Raisin is the author of multiple novels, including the Little Paris series and the Gingerbread Café trilogy. The Little Bookshop on the Seine delivers a story rich with the romance of Paris and the love of books and wraps it all together with the magic of Christmas.
