Merchant of Venice Beach by Celia Bonaduce





The Rollicking Bun-Home of the Epic Scone – is the venter of Suzanna Wolf’s life. Part tea shop, part bookstore, part home, its everything she’s ever wanted right on Venice Beach boardwalk, including partnership with her two best friends Eric and Fernando, but with thirty-three just around the corner, suddenly Suzanna wants something more – something strictly her own. Salsa lessons, especially with a gorgeous instructor, seem like a good start – a harmless secret, and just maybe the start of a fling. But before she knows it, Suzanna is learning steps she never imagined – and dancing her way to confusion.
The Merchant of Venice Beach was a good book. There were parts of it that confused me and parts of it that did not interest me, but at the end the parts that confused me made a little bit more sense. While this book had a lot of real life things in it, I wish that it would have drawn in more with more fantasy.
I liked the part of the book that talked about not judging people before you get to know them because that is very important. I loved the fact that after the earthquake they friends and family became closer after having a falling out. Running the Book Nook was very well explained and shows how hard it can be to run a business and make it successful.
