Books. Love. Friendship. Second chances. All can be found at the Printed Letter Bookshop in the small, charming town of Winsome. One of Madeline Cullen's happiest childhood memories is of working with her Aunt Maddie in the quaint and cozy Printed Letter Bookshop. But by the time Madeline inherits the shop nearly twenty years later, family troubles and her own bitter losses have hardened Madeline's heart toward her once-treasured aunt--and the now struggling bookshop left in her care. While Madeline intends to sell the shop as quickly as possible, the Printed Letter's two employees have other ideas. Reeling from a recent divorce, Janet finds sanctuary within the books and within the decadent window displays she creates. Claire, though quieter than the acerbic Janet, feels equally drawn to the daily rhythms of the shop and its loyal clientele, finding a renewed purpose within its walls. When Madeline's professional life falls apart, and a handsome gardener upends all her preconceived notions, she questions her plans and her heart. Has she been too quick to dismiss her aunt's beloved shop? And even if she has, the women's best combined efforts may be too little, too late. This sweet, contemporary read is a standalone novel, though characters in this story will appear in Katherine Reay's forthcoming book, Of Literature and Lattes. Book length: approximately 95,000 words. Includes discussion questions and a list of books from the author. Praise for The Printed Letter Bookshop: "Powerful, enchanting, and spirited, this novel will delight." --Patti Callahan, bestselling author of Becoming Mrs. Lewis "The Printed Letter Bookshop is a captivating story of good books, a testament to the beauty of new beginnings, and a sweet reminder of the power of friendship." --Rachel McMillan, author of Murder in the City of Liberty… (més)

Young atty. inherits aunt's bookshop Good characters/development. Story line very good. Features 3 women working at store. Happy ending ( )

For the book lovers around here, I think you will love 'The Printed Letter Bookshop' because it is a book about a bookshop, a book about friendships, and a book about giving something to your surroundings.
In addition to the story about the special relationship between bookseller and customer and how bookstores often are the heart of communities, this is a book about second chances and the choices we make based on misconceptions. Katherine Reay’s inimitable style invites us into the story in such a way that we see ourselves reflected in each character. We’re too quick to speak like Madeline, we’re too laid back like Claire, and our first reaction is too often anger, just like Janet. But then, as the layers of our heart are peeled back, we see the growth in each character and long for that transformation in our own lives. Madeline seeks contentment rather than success, Claire finds strength, and Janet learns humility.
Three women with their own hurts and haunts and hopes. Janet was honestly the most surprising to me...she's prickly and hard, but she ended up tugging my heart so strongly. Claire's story is one, I think, that many, many women will relate to. And Madeline was so relatable and so believable.
Looking forward to reading the second installment of the 'Winsome series' and Katherine Reay's backlist. ( )

Charming story of three women finding themselves in a bookshop. ( )

[full review on blog]

This book was a great story of friendship, hope, and forgiveness. Each of the women found themselves in situations of life they never expected to be in, but then you realize that you’re exactly where you’re supposed to be. Even when it’s a storm, you’re growing inside as you learn about yourself and if you have the courage to push through. It was just a very uplifting book and I really enjoyed the characters and community that Reay created.

I also enjoyed Reay’s use of perspective in each character’s points of view, and especially how they were even called out within the characters’ narrations. It was something that didn’t actually register with me until I flipped to the discussion questions in back, and then I was more aware of how each woman’s story was told. The interesting thing is that by the end, they all tell the story in first-person present-tense to signify that they’re living in the moment, and I honestly think that was very clever of the author.

A final note on this book is that it is classified as a Christian Fiction book, but don’t let that keep you away from reading it. It’s not going to preach at you, but it does teach of forgiveness and does include some Bible references that are left in Aunt Maddie’s letters to Madeline, Janet, and Claire. Honestly, it’s such a good book and I’d hate to see anyone turn away from it because of its genre placement.

Overall, I really enjoyed this one and I also might want to open a bookshop of my own someday! ( )

What better setting can there be for a book lover than a book that takes place in a bookstore? Printed Letter Bookshop is about a niece that inherits her aunts bookstore after she passes away, but she has not had any contact with her aunt in years. Madeline gives up her corporate career as an attorney to take on this struggling bookshop that her aunt and the community loved so much. Not only does Madeline inherit the adorable bookstore, but she also inherits the complex lives of the employees who work in it. I enjoyed getting to know the characters and their quirks and struggles. Dialogue was fabulous and I appreciated the author delving into the issues of family dynamics, family secrets, forgiveness, reconciliation, finding your purpose, etc. This was the first book I read by Katherine Reay, but it will definitely not be the last.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Net Galley. The opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own. ( )
