The Holiday Bookshop by Lucy Dickens (2022)


Are you looking to start a new chapter?

 Bookseller wanted! (3-month fixed-term contract)
Location: A luxury resort on the tropical island of Bounty Cove Cay.
Skills required: The ideal candidate will have experience in a retail environment, preferably within the book industry.
Desired qualities: This role will appeal to a book lover with an adventurous streak who is looking for an escape from their everyday life.
What to expect: Sun, sea, and a bookshop that is far from thriving. No one said it would be smooth sailing!
Please note: You may fall in love with more than just our island along the way...

One woman. One island. A bookshop in need of revival...

Jenny has never been a risk taker. But when her best friend takes off on an American road trip, Jenny finds herself saying yes to a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of her own and accepts the role of a bookseller in the Maldives.

The island of Bounty Cove Cay is everything she'd hoped for: white sandy beaches, glistening turquoise waters and palm trees bursting with coconuts. But it's not all plain sailing...

The resort bookshop is far from thriving and, in an unexpected twist, management are threatening closure.

Can Jenny throw her rulebook to the wind and turn things around before it's too late? And might she find her own happy ending along the way?

Looking for your next beach read? Look no further! Escape with The Holiday Bookshop, perfect for fans of Jo Thomas, Phillipa Ashley and Jenny Colgan...


I love stories set in bookshops or libraries and The Holiday Bookshop had the added bonus of an exotic location.

The book has two storylines as it follows the paths of two best friends, Marianne and Jenny as they both take a break away from their shared business. Both stories are as equally as engrossing as the other. The book details their personal growth in a charmingly funny and romantic way. It was uplifting and very humorous. The perfect holiday read.

The Holiday Bookshop is out now Amazon
