A Novel Bookstore

by Laurence Cosse

Rated PG

A delightful twist on a murder mystery, A Novel Bookstore follows two characters who come up with the fanciful idea to open a bookstore that sells only "good" literature. As the public, the press, and especially the  authoring world take issue with what constitutes a worthy novel, strange things begin to happen, like a host of similar bookstores suddenly opening up on the same street.

People do get hurt or die in this novel, but the violence is extremely mild and the murder itself is really only alluded to. This was a really fun read and would be great for a book club.
