The Book of Love
Author: Phillipa Fioretti
A charming woman obsessed with antique jam recipes, her long time boyfriend who is a bit of a prick, a dashing English born Russian and, at the centre of it all, a rare and ancient book of love. Throw in a loveable dog and an antique bookstore, and you have the plot of The Book of Love.
When charming Lily and her boyfriend Robbie uncover a rare book in their antique bookstore, neither of them realise the trouble it will bring. Robbie hopes to sell the book to the highest bidder, but his plans are slightly foiled when William (the dashing English born Russian) arrives, claiming the book has been stolen from a private collection, and he has been employed to retrieve it. To make matters more complicated, Robbie suddenly disappears – whether he has run off with the book or been kidnapped by the impatient owners of the private collection is any one’s guess. So Lily and William must join together in order to find Robbie…but can they deny the growing chemistry between them?
Although the plot may seem as though it is straight out of the generic romantic comedy generator, The Book of Love is a book that thrives on the stereotypes of this gender. After all, while we may think we know the outcome, isn’t half the fun seeing how our leads get there? The Book of Love is a fun and light-hearted read which will make you giggle, roll your eyes and crave jam, but it will also soften your heart and definitely make you smile.
