Scotsman in the Stacks – Published 2022
“Paige wants two things: to land a full time librarian job and find the man of her dreams. On the cusp of thirty, she finds herself suddenly single and working part-time in a Michigan library. A handsome patron with a delicious accent appears at the reference desk, inadvertently sparking an idea that might help her land the promotion she so desperately needs. But that’s not the only thing he sparks.
James is in town from Glasgow, Scotland, on a summer artist residency. Luckily, the trip got him away from the pressure he feels to take over his uncle’s river tour business. He only wanted to clear his head and make his art in peace, but he wasn’t counting on finding an attractive librarian to fill his days.
With only eight weeks before James goes home to Scotland, Paige knows she should protect her heart. After all, she already wasted years with her commitment phobe ex. But the more she gets to know James, the less she can stick to her plan to just be friends. Is she just wasting her time again, or can they bridge the ocean between them to find a happily ever after of their own?” – Goodreads

Another book about books, kind of! This one has a librarian as the MC, and it’s delightful. Paige meets someone very early on in the book, right after breaking up with a long term boyfriend, and everything goes swimmingly.
This isn’t a romance with a lot of drama or miscommunication. Both characters are very honest and open about their feelings. There are some barriers standing in their way, but overall it’s a low-stress, happy read. I really liked it!
