Sophie is a Sweetheart

The book takes place in Herring Cove, where the main character, Sophie, runs a bookstore. Her parents opened the original bookstore, and it is Sophie’s only piece of them that she has left. Due to a tragedy, Sophie lost both of her parents at a young age. She was then taken in by family members and developed friendships as close as family. Her two best friends, Ginny and Natalie live close by and have created lives for themselves, but still make time for Sophie.

Alexander, the son of a very wealthy family has come to Herring Cove to build a resort. In order to do so, he has to have the community of people who own buildings near the shore, sell their stores in order to build upon them. Many of the people in the community have agreed, due to the amount of compensation being beyond their expectations, but Sophie absolutely refuses. Alexander has no idea who he is up against.

After Alexander has encountered Sophie, something triggers in him that he needs to get to know her more and ends up agreeing to help “freshen” up her bookstore by returning to his love of carpentry. He is torn between honesty with his father, who is breathing down his neck to get this deal done, and his feelings for Sophie.

Sophie and Alexander form an odd friendship/relationship where they both feel a push and pull. When they finally succumb to their feelings, things get even more complicated. Sophie has a difficult time trusting Alexander and Alexander is the most confused he has ever been.

Alexander returns to London, leaving Sophie behind. She can barely pretend to be ok. Her best friends know she is heartbroken. How will they leave it? Will Alexander come back? And if he does, what will it cost him?
