***It's never too late to start a new chapter...
The utterly charming and feel-good new novel from the bestselling author of The Secrets of Sunshine and The Library of Lost and Found.
Liv Green loves losing herself in a good book. But her everyday reality is less romantic, cleaning houses for people who barely give her the time of day. So when she lands a job housekeeping for her personal hero and mega-bestselling author Essie Starling, she can't believe her luck.
When Essie dies unexpectedly, Liv is left with a life-changing last wish: to complete Essie's final novel. To do so, change-averse Liv will have to step away from the fictitious worlds in her head, and into Essie's shoes. As she begins to write, she uncovers a surprising connection between the two women - and a secret that will change Liv's life forever...
Brimming with joy and packed with a sparkling cast of characters, The Book Share is a moving reminder that it's never too late to re-write your own story - perfect for fans of All the Lonely People and The Authenticity Project.
