Monsieur Perdu can prescribe the perfect book for a broken heart. But can he fix his own?

Monsieur Perdu calls himself a literary apothecary. From his floating bookstore in a barge on the Seine, he prescribes novels for the hardships of life. Using his intuitive feel for the exact book a reader needs, Perdu mends broken hearts and souls. The only person he can’t seem to heal through literature is himself; he’s still haunted by heartbreak after his great love disappeared. She left him with only a letter, which he has never opened.

After Perdu is finally tempted to read the letter, he hauls anchor and departs on a mission to the south of France, hoping to make peace with his loss and discover the end of the story. Joined by a bestselling but blocked author and a lovelorn Italian chef, Perdu travels down the river, dispensing his wisdom and his books, showing that the literary world can take the human soul on a journey to heal itself.

Internationally bestselling and filled with warmth and adventure, The Little Paris Bookshop is a love letter to reading, meant for anyone who believes in the power of stories on people’s lives.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Enchanting and moving…Rarely have I read such a beautiful book!”

    Tina magazine (Germany)

  • “The settings are ideal for a summer-romance read…Who can resist floating on a barge through France surrounded by books, wine, love, and great conversation?”

    Christian Science Monitor

  • “Nina George tells us clever things about love, about reading that ‘puts a bounce in your step,’ about tango in Provence, and about truly good food…One of those books that gets you thinking about whom you need to give it to as a gift even while you’re still reading it, because it makes you happy and should be part of any well-stocked apothecary.”

    Hamburger Morgenpost (Hamburg)

  • “Warmhearted…A charming novel that believes in the healing properties of fiction, romance, and a summer in the south of France.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Narrator Steve West carries listeners along on a literary adventure down France’s rivers…West wisely reserves his French accent for the dialogue, immersing listeners in the setting without overwhelming them. His quiet, gentle performance fits the mood of this charming, contemplative story, which is perfect for book lovers. Although the majority of the audiobook is read by West, Emma Bering and Cassandra Campbell have small parts that enhance the listening experience.”


  • "The Little Paris Bookshop is an enchantment. Set in a floating barge along the Seine, this love letter to books—and to the complicated, sometimes broken people who are healed by them—is the next best thing to booking a trip to France.”

    Sarah Pekkanen, author of Catching Air

  • “Simultaneously heartbreaking and heartwarming, Nina George’s impressionistic prose takes the reader on a journey not just through the glories of France and the wonders of books, but through the encyclopedic panoply of human emotions. The Little Paris Bookshop is a book whose palette, textures, and aromas will draw you in and cradle you in the redemptive power of love.”

    Charlie Lovett, author of The Bookman’s Tale

  • A New York Times Bestseller
  • A June 2015 LibraryReads Pick
