Loveday Cardew prefers books to people. If you look carefully, you might glimpse the first lines of the novels she loves most tattooed on her skin. But there are some things Loveday will never, ever show you.

Into her hiding place—the bookstore where she works - come a poet, a lover, and three suspicious deliveries.

Someone has found out about her mysterious past. Will Loveday survive her own heartbreaking secrets?

The Lost for Words Bookshop is a compelling, irresistible, and heart-rending novel, perfect for fans of The Storied Life of AJ Fikryand The Little Paris Bookshop.

  1. When we are on the road, I like finding new ones to stop at. Mystery to Me in Madison WI has turned out to be a favorite stop.

  2. I love shopping at small, family owned bookstores. They are so personal and have a homey feel. There’s one I love in particular and it’s called Northshire

  3. I enjoy exploring bookstores more than any other type of shopping since they are special havens for me. In Asheville there was a beauty and a cafe with books lining the walls. So welcoming and cozy.

  4. I live in a small town so we don't have a bookstore. I buy my books from Amazon. If I do see a bookstore I always go in and check it out.
