Book Review: Turning Pages

I just finished a wonderful book by Tristi Pinkston 

Turning Pages is a terrific story for anyone who wants to "get away" from reality for a while.

As the dedication says: "To every girl who has ever spent an entire day curled up with a good book."

With interesting characters and touching story of how a girl deals with the death of her father, Turning Pages takes the reader on a journey to another place. You cheer, you cry, you laugh and you cannot put this book down until you find out what happens.

 Some readers might claim it was a modern "Pride and Prejudice" but I didn't think so.  It did remind me of the story somewhat but there are enough details changed that it really isn't the story at all but it's own world of love and librarians.

Turning Pages
by Trista Pinkston

With his pride and her prejudice, what could possibly go wrong?

When the arrogant Blake Hansen steals Addie Preston¹s promotion at the
library, he pretty much rubs her nose in it. But Addie, who dreams of being
a full-fledged librarian, decides to stick it out. She loves surrounding
herself with books and keeping her father¹s memory alive in the building
where they spent so much time together.

Soon, Addie learns that her beloved library will be torn down to make room
for a larger facility, and she has to make a choice. Fight, or let go?
 To complicate things, she finds herself attracted to Blake, who is engaged
to someone else. Will Blake and Addie ever resolve their differences?
