True Love at the Lonely Hearts Bookshop

Annie Darling

I received this book for review from Netgalley.
Verity runs admin for the Lonely Hearts Bookshop. An introvert dreamer with a bad break up behind her she's invented a fake boyfriend to stop the well meaning interventions of her friends into her dating life. Nearly caught out in her lie she relies on the kindness of a stranger to divert her friends. Turns of the stranger thinks the idea of fake dating is a great one and proposes they be each others fake dates for the summer.
Fun book that was total catnip for me. As I've said before the 'fake dating' trope just works for me. The lead character is easy to root for and the world around the leads is well drawn. The only thing that spoils it is just how dumb the lead male is about his 'one true love'. I could get it if she was a decent human but she's just spoilt and awful.

Rating: B
