June Andersen is professionally successful, but her personal life is
marred by unhappiness. Unexpectedly, she is called to settle her
great-aunt Ruby’s estate and determine the fate of Bluebird Books, the
children’s bookstore Ruby founded in the 1940s. Amidst the store’s
papers, June stumbles upon letters between her great-aunt and the late
Margaret Wise Brown—and steps into the pages of American literature.
This was my first time reading this author. I heard about her quite a lot and was wondering if I might like her books. It turned out no. I was aware that this book is a romantic story and I did not expect it to be very intellectual read, but it turned out to be just rubbish. I have read a lot of love romance and this one was not a good one. Every character was as flat as paper, and predictable as a 5 o'clock tea. I cannot find any positive scene in the book: Seattle seemed like a village with three houses, the main love interest too perfect and eager to marry after 2 days, even the situation with a cancer and hospital seems so forced, just to paint the book less pink. I forced myself to finish it and was skipping especially boring passages. I will not venture to read another book by this author.
