When I began reviewing for My Weekly. a few months ago I little realised just how many wonderful books I’d have the privilege of reading. The latest of those books is The Book Share by Phaedra Patrick.
Published by Harper Collins’ imprint HQ today, 31st March 2022, The Book Share is available for purchase through the links here.
The Book Share
It’s never too late to start a new chapter…
The utterly charming and feel-good new novel from the bestselling author of The Secrets of Sunshine and The Library of Lost and Found.
Liv Green loves losing herself in a good book. But her everyday reality is less romantic, cleaning houses for people who barely give her the time of day. So when she lands a job housekeeping for her personal hero and mega-bestselling author Essie Starling, she can’t believe her luck.
When Essie dies unexpectedly, Liv is left with a life-changing last wish: to complete Essie’s final novel. To do so, change-averse Liv will have to step away from the fictitious worlds in her head, and into Essie’s shoes. As she begins to write, she uncovers a surprising connection between the two women – and a secret that will change Liv’s life forever…
Brimming with joy and packed with a sparkling cast of characters, The Book Share is a moving reminder that it’s never too late to re-write your own story – perfect for fans of All the Lonely People and The Authenticity Project.
My Review of The Book Share
My full review of The Book Share can be found on the My Weekly website here.
However, here I can say that The Book Share is warm hearted, engaging and thoroughly entertaining with a wonderful insight into a writer’s life and a hint of mystery that hooks the reader completely. I really enjoyed it.
