Description

In a tiny bookshop in Dubrovnik’s historic Old Town, a book club begins…

Newly arrived on the sun-drenched shores of Croatia, Claire Thomson’s life is about to change forever when she starts working at a local bookshop. With her cousin Vedran, employee Luna and Karmela, a professor, they form an unlikely book club.

But when their first book club pick – an engrossing cosy crime – inspires them to embark upon an investigation that is close to the group’s heart, they quickly learn the value of keeping their new-found friends close as lives and stories begin to entwine…

Brilliant - I loved it! Great story lines, with each character bringing something entirely different and unique to their personal struggles.

Set in Dubrovnik old town with its many historical landmarks, Claire battles against her fear of Covid; her young assistant Luna finds enough confidence to face her sexuality; Karmela forgives herself for deserting her best childhood friends; Vedran learns that his girlfriend planned her disappearance; Ezra the IT geek has a romantic side. Together the group work tirelessly to save the bookshop from closure.

Fun, compulsive and a great read.

My thanks to NetGalley and the publishers One More Chapter for this advance copy.

The Dubrovnik Book Club by Eva Glyn

The Welcoming Bookshop in Dubrovnik launches a book club and brings friendship and support to a group of people - Claire who is struggling in public places after having Long Covid, Luna who fears rejection by her deeply religous parents if she comes out, Karmela who keeps herself aloof after the trauma she experienced in the war, and Vedran whose girlfriend disappeared, placing him under suspicion.

What a lovely book, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Fabulous setting of Dubrovnik - I loved the descriptions of the city, the bookshop, food and history. Great characters and themes associated with each one. And a lovely story. Very VERY highly recommended.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for an ARC of this book.
