Veronica Henry with Catherine

Veronica Henry is a best-selling novelist who has set her latest story in a bookshop.

"I like to write about places where I would like to be," she says. "And for book lovers there's nothing more pleasurable than going into a bookshop."

In this beautifully packaged book, Veronica tells the story of Emilia, grieving her father's death but also trying to save the failing business he left her. It's a much-loved, but not commercially driven, bookshop in a small market town. As Emilia decides what to do next, she gets to know the local people - how their lives have been touched by the shop, her father's recommendations, and the books they love.

Veronica worked in Foyles bookshop in London as a student, and then moved into the production team for The Archers before writing scripts for popular tv dramas such as 'Heartbeat' and 'Holby City'. She started writing fiction in 2000.

We sipped Prosecco, listened to exquisite music while surrounded by books and were entertained by the popular romantic novelist, Veronica Henry. A perfect evening in Browsers Bookshop.
