I’m not a big fiction reader, but I love reading books about books. Most of us have dreamt of moving to a small quaint town and devouring books all day long while lounging on our wrap around porch. This is exactly what Sara from Sweden plans to do when she loses her bookselling job and decides to visit her pen pal Amy in the sleepy town of Broken Wheel, Iowa in Katrina Bivald’s novel, “The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend.”
Sara’s plans of lazy days of reading and catching up with her pen pal our disrupted as soon as she arrives. She soon discovers that small towns carry big drama and she finds herself smack dab in the middle of it all. Not all is as it seems as Sara is hit with more than a few surprises.
An Easy Read
I read this book on a trip to Chicago and Canada and got happily lost in the cast of delightful characters. I also enjoyed the references to other books, from Austen and Bridget Jones that are laced throughout the pages. “The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend,” is an easy, enjoyable read from start to finish. It is the perfect book for book lovers!
