      Benny and Shrimp, by Katarina Mazetti An unforgettable book about a romance between a reserved librarian and a really reserved farmer. It’s a tough call to pick just one romance for your tiny house, but this one is a strong contender. If anyone knows when .   It started in a cemetery, where they begrudgingly share a bench. "Shrimp," the childless young widow and librarian with a sharp intellect and a home so tidy that her jam jars are in alphabetical order, meets Benny, the gentle, overworked milk farmer who fears becoming the village's Old Bachelor.

    Benny is tending his mother’s monstrously ornate grave in a Swedish cemetery; Desirée is sitting beside her husband’s tastefully understated slab. Thus begins a hopelessly incompatible relationship between a dairy farmer who favors women in lipstick and high heels, and a pale (hence the nickname Shrimp) devotee of opera and aromatherapy. Benny & Shrimp () About book: Don't be deterred by the title, this is chick lit for grown ups, it is about modern passion backed against the harsh reality of day to day life. Have you ever imagined a passion developing between a farmer, bound to his farm by his 24 cows and a librarian?
