Bookends - Jane Green
I bought this after reading another Jane Green book, as I liked her style and now I have read quite a few of her books. After reading the description of this online I thought that this would be a book that I would enjoy and yes it isn't the best book that I have ever read or that, but it is good and kept me turning the pages.
The book is about a woman called Cath. Cath works at a top London advertising agency. Cath wants to leave the career that she has worked at for the last good few years and open up her very own Bookshop. Cath's friend Lucy also wants a change in scenery and Lucy wants to open up her own Cafe. The 2 woman decide to take both their dreams and turn it into 1 place, so they open up Bookends - a Book cafe. Sounds interesting. So come in, enjoy a Coffee and and read a bit.
Cath and Lucy's husband John met each other at Uni, and have still kept in touch (but obviously Lucy and Cath work together in their book cafe.
I like the story as it doesn't focus on the normal early 20's woman as the characters are in their 30's. IT tells a story of people who are doing alright, but who are longing for a change and although often some people don't have the guts for a change these 2 ladies take the big step in order to change their lives. But do things go to plan? Well no in a way. Someone tyrbs up out of the blue that cath and John knew from Uni and this person caused trouble back when they were in Uni. Will time have changed this person or will they be as much trouble as they were before? Unfortunately you will just have to read and find out.
I found this book a little slow to start and I wondered if this would be any good, but about 50 or so pages in then I got a bit more into it and I enjoyed the read.
A good read and if you are a fan of Jane green's work then you should like this. Not a new story concept or anything but still a good book and the type of book that I like to read.
