I'm now onto my second post on the blog tour for The Oddest Little Series by Beth Good and this time it is a review for The Oddest Little Book Shop. First of all though let's take a look at the description for the book...
Escape to the gorgeous seaside resort of Port Pol, where love and laughter overflow in the Cornish sunshine.
'I love Beth Good's quirky style!' - bestselling author, Katie Fforde
After ten long years away, television star Daisy Diamond is finally going home.
She's not back at the gorgeous seaside resort of Port Pol in sunny Cornwall five minutes before she realises the mistake she's made. Her childhood sweetheart Nick Old - affectionately known as 'Devil' - is still living there, running the local bookshop, and he is determined to rekindle their flame.
Daisy is no longer the dewy-eyed romantic of her school days. Her life may not have gone according to plan, but she's not afraid to show Nick how much she's grown since he famously dumped her at the school leavers' disco.
Even if it means bending her heart out of shape a little . . .
A charming summer novella from popular romantic comedy writer Beth Good and another entry in her quirky 'Oddest Little Shop' series.
It's safe to say that I'm really enjoying The Oddest Little series they are perfect for picking up when you don't have much time but still want to read a full story.
In this book we meet Daisy as she returns to her home town of Port Pol and ends up meeting her first love Nick. Let's put it this way there is a lot of history between the pair and a lot of it is unresolved! Nick and Daisy's interactions were fiery and flirty making a very explosive combination. When they first meet again I was so curious as to what had happened in the past and I couldn't wait to see how it would all turn out in the end.
The Oddest Little Book Shop had plenty of drama and was so much fun to read. There was always something happening to keep the momentum of the story going especially as Daisy found herself in plenty of scrapes.
With lost loves, lively personalities including a scary character with a serious anger issue there isn't a dull moment in this book. Of course there has to be bonus points for setting the story in a book shop!
The Oddest Little Book Shop is all about second chances and is fun from start to finish!
Four stars from me!

Born and raised in Essex, England, Beth Good was whisked away to an island tax haven at the age of eleven to attend an exclusive public school and rub shoulders with the rich and famous. Sadly, she never became rich or famous herself, so had to settle for infamy as a writer of dubious novels. She writes under several different names, mainly to avoid confusing her readers - and herself! As Beth Good she writes romantic comedy and feel-good fiction. She also writes thrillers as Jane Holland, historicals as Victoria Lamb and Elizabeth Moss, and feel-good fiction as Hannah Coates.
Beth currently lives in the West Country where she spends a great deal of time thinking romantic thoughts while staring out of her window at sheep. (These two actions are unrelated.)
You can find her most days on Twitter as @BethGoodWriter where she occasionally indulges in pointless banter about chocolate making and the Great British Bake Off. Due to a basic inability to say no, she has too many children and not enough money, which means she needs as many readers as she can get.
