This gentle, intelligent Midwestern tale will captivate fans of Antoine Laurain's The Red Notebook, Nina George's The Little Paris Bookshop, and Gabrielle Zevin's The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry. An ideal book group selection, it reminds us why we are book lovers and why it's nice to read a few happy endings." - Library Journal, starred review
"A manifesto for booksellers, booklovers, and friendship. We should all celebrate these little bookstores, where our souls find home... one of these books you want to live in for a while." - Nina George, New York Times bestselling author of The Little Paris Bookshop
"This classic fish-out-of-water story will steal your heart. It's smart, sweet, absorbing and endearing, just like the town of Broken Wheel. It's a story for everyone who believes in the magic of books to enlighten, heal and restore. A treat for readers everywhere!" - Susan Wiggs, New York Times bestselling author of Starlight on Willow Lake

"Between the book references and the idyllic setting, readers won't want to leave Broken Wheel, either." - Kirkus Reviews
"Swedish author Bivald's debut novel is a delight. Bivald fills the pages with book references, chief among them Austen and Bridget Jones, but it is her characters that will win readers over... As in Austen, love conquers but just who and how will come as a pleasant surprise.
" - Publishers Weekly
"The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend is one of the more surprisingly improbable and delightful books I've read in years.

Quirky, unpredictable, funny, and fresh - a wonderful book." - Nickolas Butler, internationally bestselling author of Shotgun Lovesongs and Beneath the Bonfire
