Recently I pulled this book out of the huge stack on my desk and started to read. 
I had heard many things about it but you know how it is, there are so many good 
books out there to read! I am so glad that I didn't wait another day - it was wonderful!

Mr. A.J. Fikry is sad, he has unexpectedly lost the love of his life, his wife, to 
a strange accident. He has withdrawn from the daily life of his bookstore - the only 
bookstore on Alice Island. As his life continues to go downhill, he receives his annual
visit from the Knightley Press rep, but this time it is someone new. Amelia shows up 
tries to talk him into buying her new set of books. To say the least, it does not go well. 

With the help of Amelia, his sister-in-law, the Chief of Police and other Island natives, 
AJ starts to change his life around. The appearance of a baby girl who is left in his 
store, changes everything. He finds the love he has been missing all along. This story 
was terrific and don't miss this book! You will love it!
