Review of The Borrow a Bookshop Holiday

This book is a treat for book lovers!

A bittersweet story about heartbreak, betrayal, and finding the strength to form new relationships, it will draw you in and keep you there.

Plenty of bookish conversations, bits of bookish history, a cafe, a bookshop, a grieving pet, inquisitive village folk, and a glorious seaside–there’s much to keep you occupied.

The deep secret didn’t seem so horrific to me, but it explains the cagey behavior of the main characters.

I loved the part where Jude struggles to run the bookshop on her own, but finally masters it.

The author springs a few happy surprises that I absolutely didn’t see coming.

All in all, this is a feel-good book that has helped soothe me during a trying time in my personal life.


The Borrow a Bookshop Holiday Blurb

The Fully Booked Bookshop Café invites literature lovers to run their very own bookshop … for a fortnight.

Spend your days talking books with customers in your own charming bookshop and serving up delicious cream teas in the cosy café.

Bookworms, what are you waiting for? Your holiday is going to be LIT(erary).

Apply to: The Fully Booked Bookshop, Down-a-long, Clove Lore, Devon.

Jude Crawley should be on top of the world. She’s just graduated as a mature student, so can finally go public about her relationship with Philosophy professor, Mack.

Until she sees Mack kissing another girl, and her dreams crumble. And worse, their dream holiday – running a tiny bookshop in the harbour village of Clove Lore for two weeks – is non-refundable.

Throwing caution to the winds, Jude heads down to Devon, eager to immerse herself in literature and heal her broken heart.

But there’s one problem – six foot tall, brooding (but gorgeous) Elliot, who’s also reserved the bookshop holiday for two weeks…

As Jude and Elliot put their differences aside to run the bookshop, it seems that Jude might be falling in love with more than just words. Until she discovers what Elliot is running from – and why he’s hiding out in Clove Lore.

Can Jude find her own happy ending in a tiny, tumbledown bookshop? Or is she about to find out that her bookish holiday might have an unexpected twist in the tale…
