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…
I recently finished reading Kiley Dunbar’s The Borrow a Bookshop Holiday, and I must say, it was an absolute delight! The characters are so well-developed, and the story is beautifully crafted. I found myself completely immersed in the world of the bookshop and the town it’s located in. The romance between the main characters is sweet and heartwarming without being overly cheesy. I appreciated the emphasis on family and community throughout the novel. Overall, I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a cozy and uplifting read.
