A special thank you to NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Floating on the Seine is a very special bookshop. Monsieur Jean Perdu is a brokenhearted bookseller that prescribes books to locals and tourists of Paris much like a pharmacist. Perdu is accustomed to his solitary life as he mourns lost love. His feelings are awakened with a new neighbour, equally fragile. To avoid any sort of a relationship with her, he sets sail. I loved the idea, setting, and premise of this book but once the bookshop sets sail, that's when my interest also set sail.
