The Bookshop of Yesterdays by Amy Meyerson

Books about bookstores are an easy pick for me. They tell a good story but revel in the world of words. This is no exception. Having inherited a bookstore from a long-forgotten uncle, Miranda must jump clue to clue and figure out her real inheritance. Using the themes and passages from a world of fiction, we get to find the pieces with her. Although the ending may have been a little too obviously foreshadowed, it still felt satisfying. The secondary characters of regulars at Prospero Books are all richly drawn and fully engaging. I wish there was more of them. Meyerson has done a fantastic job of making me want to turn the page. Recommended.
