The Holiday Bookshop

The perfect, feel-good beach read for summer 2022




The perfect holiday read! Inspired by a true story, THE HOLIDAY BOOKSHOP is a book about a woman takes a temporary job as a bookseller at a resort in the Maldives

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?
