This modern day story of suspense reads like a fairy tale. Jeremy Johnson Johnson (his real name) lives in the town of Never Better and helps to run the Two-Book Bookstore, where there are only two titles for sale. The ghost of Joseph Grimm, one half of the Brothers Grimm, is his closest companion and protector. Meanwhile the nefarious Finder of Occasions watches and waits.

It’s February, and time to settle into a good book. This novel, based largely on his letters to his brother Theo, is an intimate view of the complicated and tumultuous life of Vincent Van Gogh. It was so captivating, that when the end drew near I put it down and walked away, unable to bear the thought of finishing it.
