Monsieur Perdu can prescribe the perfect book for a broken heart. But can he fix his own?

Monsieur Perdu calls himself a literary apothecary. From his floating bookstore in a barge on the Seine, he prescribes novels for the hardships of life. Using his intuitive feel for the exact book a reader needs, Perdu mends broken hearts and souls. The only person he can't seem to heal through literature is himself; he's still haunted by heartbreak after his great love disappeared. She left him with only a letter, which he has never opened.

After Perdu is finally tempted to read the letter, he hauls anchor and departs on a mission to the south of France, hoping to make peace with his loss and discover the end of the story. Joined by a bestselling but blocked author and a lovelorn Italian chef, Perdu travels along the country's rivers, dispensing his wisdom and his books, showing that the literary world can take the human soul on a journey to heal itself.

Internationally bestselling and filled with warmth and adventure, The Little Paris Bookshop is a love letter to books, meant for anyone who believes in the power of stories to shape people's lives.

Review:

New York Times Bestseller
A LibraryReads Favorite of the Favorites
An Indie Bestseller of 2015

"If you're looking to be charmed right out of your own life for a few hours, sit down with this wise and winsome novel...Everything happens just as you want it to... from poignant moments to crystalline insights in exactly the right measure."--Oprah.com

"The settings are ideal for a summer-romance read...Who can resist floating on a barge through France surrounded by books, wine, love, and great conversation?"--Christian Science Monitor

"[A] bona fide international hit."--New York Times Book Review

"A story that reflects all the romance and sweetness of Paris itself." --San Francisco Book Review

"George's exquisite, multilayered love story enchanted Europe for more than a year, and the U.S. publication of this flawless translation will allow gob-smacked book lovers here to struggle with the age-old dilemma: to race through each page to see what happens next or savor each deliciously enticing phrase. Do both; if ever a book was meant to be read over and over, this gem is it."--Library Journal (starred review)

"Warmhearted...A charming novel that believes in the healing properties of fiction, romance, and a summer in the south of France."--Kirkus

"A beautiful story of grief, companionship, forgiveness and building a life worth living. A vulnerable, relatable tale of great love and loss, missed opportunities and moving on, The Little Paris Bookshop is, like the books its main characters recommends, medicine for the wounded soul."--Bookpage

"Engaging... [George's] sumptuous descriptions of both food and literature will leave readers unsure whether to run to the nearest library or the nearest bistro."--Publishers Weekly

"There's a special category of books that appeal most strongly to people who just plain love to read. Not thrillers, or mysteries, or traditional romances, they are instead love letters to books themselves and to the power and delight of the written word and of stories...Now joining the ranks of those books you just have to give to the bibliophiles in your life is The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George...The Little Paris Bookshop is the kind of book that readers might not know they needed or wanted until they picked it up -- meaning that George herself is doing exactly the same kind of work as Jean Perdu on his floating literary apothecary."--Bookreporter.com

"Nina George's enchanting The Little Paris Bookshop deals with the nature of grief and the power of friendship, love and truth...George is a lyrical writer whose beautiful, sensory language and imagery enhance this adventurous, moving narrative."--Shelf Awareness

"Uplifting... An international best seller, this one will make you happy."--The Independent

"The Little Paris Bookshop is an enchantment. Set in a floating barge along the Seine, this love letter to books - and to the complicated, sometimes broken people who are healed by them - is the next best thing to booking a trip to France."--Sarah Pekkanen, author of Catching Air

"Simultaneously heartbreaking and heartwarming, Nina George's impressionistic prose takes the reader on a journey not just through the glories of France and the wonders of books, but through the encyclopedic panoply of human emotions. The Little Paris Bookshop is a book whose palette, textures, and aromas will draw you in and cradle you in the redemptive power of love."--Charlie Lovett, author of The Bookman's Tale

"Nina George tells us clever things about love, about reading that 'puts a bounce in your step, ' about tango in Provence, and about truly good food. . . . One of those books that gets you thinking about whom you need to give it to as a gift even while you're still reading it, because it makes you happy and should be part of any well-stocked apothecary." --Hamburger Morgenpost (Germany)

"Enchanting and moving ... Rarely have I read such a beautiful book!"--Tina magazine (Germany)

Book Description:
