Lissie and Cormack discover a new depth of feeling…for their profession and for each other. But what will happen when Lissie and Cormack finally meet…?
Author Jenny Colgan returns to the beloved Scottish Highland town of Kirrinfief, which readers first met in The Bookshop on the Shore, and adds a dash of London’s bustling urban landscape.« less
Another great story from Jenny Colgan set in the same small town in Scotland as a couple of others. Loved seeing some of the old characters pop up in this one although this is a stand alone book and not a series. Lissa and Cormac do a job trade. She goes to Scotland from London and he takes her job in London. They exchange emails and text about the job and their patients, fall in love through their emails/texts, and eventually meet at the end. Some ups and downs along the way but sweet book with a teary ending. You are rooting for them both to get together.
