'A romantic book-filled treat' Heidi Swain, author of The Secret Seaside Escape

The Borrow-a-Bookshop Bookshop Cafe 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 cafe.

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

Apply to: The Borrow-a-Bookshop Bookshop Cafe, 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...

The perfect cosy, romantic read for any bookworm! Fans of Jenny Colgan, Cressida McLaughlin and Philippa Ashley will love this feelgood romcom.
