5 Easy-to-Read Love Story Books

I love Love. And I love Love Stories in any shape or form: real life, rom coms, tear jerkers, the notebook (it deserves it’s own category) but particularly romance or love-based novels. (FYI this is the first love story 5-to-try of MANY.)

 

1. The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George

What could be more perfect than a love story about BOOKS? Um, nothing is the answer.

Translated from French, The Little Paris Bookshop tells the story of Jean. A broken-hearted Parisian who sets out on a journey to mend himself, taking with him a young novelist searching for a story.

Will this book melt your heart? Oui, oui!

 

 

2. It End With Us by Colleen Hoover

Lily finally has the life she's always wanted. She's moved far away from her hated family home in Maine to live in the city of her dreams: Boston. She owns her own business, has made friends and is starting to fall for a dashing neurosurgeon who appears to be, well, perfect. 

What could possibly go wrong?

Based on the author's own family experiences, It Ends With Us is a story about love, family dysfunction and how history always repeats itself. 

Trust me, you need to read this book. 

 

3. The Girl You Left Behind by Jojo Moyes

I’m a bigger fan of Jojo Moyes less known books than her well-known ones ‒ The Girl You Left Behind is one of them.

Left by her French artist husband Edouard Lefevre to fight at the front during World War I, Sophie has to fight to survive in this new world order. The only thing she has to remember her husband by is the portrait of her that he so carefully painted. 

Almost a century later, the portrait falls into the hands of Liv Halston. Liv was given the portrait by her husband shortly before his sudden death.

A legal battle begins – who is the rightful owner of the painting? Liv won't give in easily – it's all she has left of her husband. 

 

4. The Hypnotist’s Love Story by Liane Moriarty

When Ellen starts dating Patrick, she thinks she may have found the one. He meets all the criteria, he likes her back and doesn’t seem to have any issues. Then she discovers his ex-girlfriend is stalking him ‒ but what could be so bad about that? In fact, it’s kind of exciting.

I loved this easy-to-read love story that flips the normal plot-line on its head.  

P.S. This made me want to go see a hypnotist. Does anyone know one?

 


5. The Dangers of Truffle Hunting by Sunni Overend

Kit Gossard has the ideal life: great job, a successful fiance and devoted family. But it’s all flipped on its head when ruggedly handsome Raph comes to work at her parents vineyard. Raph holds his cards pretty close to his chest, but there is some magnetic about him. Of course, Kit isn’t actually interested, just intrigued…

Chick-lit lovers, you need to read Sunni Overend. (The Aussie author Sunni is my new girl crush.) You'll devour this book ‒ and consider eating truffles more.
