Title: The Borrow-A-Bookshop Holiday
Author: Kiley Dunbar
Published: May 5th, 2021
If you’re looking for a delightful book related romance, complete with a wonderful small seaside community setting, lots of great characters and a mystery, grab yourself a copy of this brilliant read!
Life is all changing at once for Jude Crawley, she’s graduated, won an award and then everything crashes at once! She grabs the chance to go to run a seaside bookshop for a fortnight, giving her the chance to reflect on what she wants to do with her life after all the recent changes. She thought she’d be there alone and certainly wasn’t anticipating a stranger, Elliot, turning up to share the same holiday – especially as he’s so attractive but mysterious! Maybe those hopes and dreams will need rewriting, after all!
There are a wide range of fabulous characters, including a gorgeous but independent and grieving Bedlington Terrier. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and there’s a surprise twist in the story towards the end. There’s more than one romance, lots of love, an awesome atmosphere and fun folk in this heartwarming story set in the small community of Clove Lore. I really hope there will be more stories set in this lovely community in future so we can catch up on everyone there again.
Thank you for my copy of this book which I have voluntarily read and honestly reviewed.

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…
