A sweet fun tale with lovable main characters and quirky secondary ones. Reading a book by author Kiley Dunbar after a long time, I liked the sweetness in it. The author knew how to pull her readers by the power of her words
Both Jude and Mike were well developed over the pages, but it was to Jude that my eyes were drawn to. I liked how easily I could connect with her. The writing was clear and easy to read, there was humor and friendship interspersed with real life. That made them genuine.
I adored the way the book captured my heart and gave me a few hours of solace. The pandemic had seen me drift to gentler reads. The book had powerful imagery to pull me deep into its locales. Overall a heartwarming read. I would gladly read every one of this author’s books had I been a romantic reader.

The Borrow-a-Bookshop 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 Borrow-a-Bookshop Bookshop Café, 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…

I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.
