'Prolific, entertaining and charming, Rachael Johns is arguably the best romantic writer in Australia.' The Australian

Named after a famous fictional character, librarian Bridget Jones was raised on a remote cattle station, with only her mother's romance novels for company. Now living alone in Fremantle, Bridget is a hopeless romantic. She also believes that anyone who doesn't like reading just hasn't met the right book yet, and that connecting books to their readers is her superpower. If only her love life was that easy.

When handsome Italian barista Fabio progresses from flirting with love hearts on her coffee foam to joining the book club she runs at her library, Bridget prays her romance 'curse' won't ruin things. But it's the attention of her cranky neighbour Sully that seems to be the major obstacle in her life. Why is he going to so much effort to get under her skin?

With the help of her close friends and the colourful characters who frequent her library, Bridget decides to put both men to the test by finding just the right books to capture their very different hearts. She soon discovers that not all romances start with a meet-cute, but they might just end in happily ever after...

Written by Australia's most beloved romance writer, The Other Bridget is a delightfully uplifting book about books, and a gorgeous celebration of the power and pleasure of romance novels throughout the ages.

'The Other Bridget has everything a booklover could want in a great read. Our protagonist is a delight. Tick. She works with books. Tick. There's an all-star supporting cast. Tick. The two love interests are perfectly cast and the chemistry sizzles. Tick-tick. But also, this exceptional story has so much heart, humour and intelligence. I often laughed out loud and, yes, I even got teary. It delivers. The Other Bridget is Rachael at the top of her game. The writing sings. It's a superb celebration of libraries, friendship and books. It will be difficult to top this for a feelgood read this year.' Better Reading
