The Borrow a Bookshop Holiday
About the book...
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…

From the title to the concept, what book lover WOULDN'T be hooked by this one?! Am I right?! I mean, I'm pretty sure we've all dreamed about running our own bookshop at some point or another, if not to help connect readers with fabulous titles, to at that very least indulge in all the back stock ourselves! But I digress...I do believe those dreams never included the running away from something else to reach those dreams aspect of the story, and yet that catalyst is exactly what finds us beside Jude as she tries to make the best of a holiday built for two, all by her lonesome...or not. Yeah, there's definitely a potential meet cute situation going on here that will have our gal preoccupied, but might I give this little piece of sage advice...if SHE was running from something, what makes her think that HE was any different? Will the things they are trying to escape hold them back from finding their own happy-ever-afters? I do believe that the only way to find out would be to crack the virtual spine and see for yourself!
You didn't think I was going to spoil it for you now, did you? Good...because I would never dream of it! When a story is so wrapped around its characters, such as this, it can be hard to talk at length about one without revealing all of the other, but it is just that that also makes it special, makes it shine with its own light and find a welcome home in the hearts of book lovers round the globe. So whether you're twenty or one twenty, give yourself a chance to explore that bookshop dream through the eyes of a soul looking for more than just a few pages of a book, but her very own story that just might be in the making!
