Love at First Book by Jenn McKinlay
Discussion Questions:

1. Emily Allen goes to Ireland because she’s always wanted to travel the world and have adventures. Do you want to travel the world? Where would you go?

2. Kieran Murphy doesn’t like change. He even admits to never rearranging his furniture. Do you like change? If you could change anything
about your life right now, what would it be?

3. Siobhan Riordan has a terrible case of writer’s block and hasn’t written in ten years, leaving the final book in her series unfinished. Have you
ever read a series that was left unfinished? How would you feel if your favorite author quit writing?

4. Em has to learn how to drive on the opposite side of the road and gamely rises to the challenge. Have you ever been challenged in such a way? How did it go?

5. Em and Kier have a mutual love of books and quiz each other with literary quotes throughout the book. Did you know most of the quotes? Did any of them surprise you?

6. Em realizes that the village of Finn’s Hollow is where she belongs. She’s happy there. Where is your happy place?

7. Em has a difficult relationship with her mother, but finds a satisfying maternal bond with Siobhan. Do you think the mother–daughter relationship is a difficult one? Do you have other women in your life who have stepped into the role of mom for you?

8. Em is a daydreamer, imagining extraordinary things from the ordinary. Are you a daydreamer? What do you dream about?

9. Kier is charged with making a grand gesture to show Em how much he loves her. What do you think of grand gestures in romance? What do
you think of his?

10. Em and Kier do not experience love at first sight and, in fact, do not get along at all in the beginning. When do you think their feelings change? Do you think they will live happily ever after?
