Lucy's Book Club for the Lost and Found by Emma Davies (Tuesday Intros & Teaser Tuesday)

I have a huge weakness for books about the bookish so when I saw Emma Davies' Lucy's Book Club for the Lost and Found on Netgalley my finger couldn't hit the request button fast enough! The cover claims it to be "a heartwarming feel-good romance novel" and they absolutely nailed it for a description. 

The story centers around Lucy and the book club she forms at the library where she works. It's a mixture of people who attend -- elderly widower Oscar, shy computer nerd Callum, single mom Hattie and Lia, whose entire life is centered around caring for her mother with dementia. Each of them, in their own way, is "lost" and Lucy wants to use the book club as a way to help them find what's missing. Of course, she doesn't take into consideration that she needs the same for herself, too. 

Watching the individual stories unfold and how they end up intertwining as a group was an absolute delight at times and absolutely heartbreaking at others. It didn't take long at all for me to care about all of the book club members and that made for a quick and highly recommendable read.  

It's being released this coming Friday, just in time for the post-holiday unwind for those of us here in the States and it's available for pre-order at the oh-so-amazing price of 99 cents so you won't even have to think about it while debating where to do your Black Friday shopping! It will already be waiting on your Kindle!

"First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros" is from the first paragraph or two of a book being read now (or in the future) and is hosted by Bibliophile by the Sea. "Teaser Tuesday" at The Purple Booker asks for a random line or two from anywhere in the book currently being read.

Amazon Description


  1. This TT sounds delightful - as you say... a book about nice bookish people in a library? What's not to like?

  2. This sounds very much like the book club I used to be in before we moved. A real mix of people thrown together over a love of books.
