When quirky bookworm Florence Danver loses her job, she knows it’s time to make some serious changes. Nanna Margot encourages Flo to spend a week at Camp Calla Lily, where she hasn’t been since she lost her parents. Her return is filled with bittersweet memories… until she meets Jo Hadlee.

Soon enough, Flo and fellow dreamer Jo are inseparable as they connect over books and build castles in the air. But when Jo leaves suddenly for his job in London, the fantasy bubble bursts and real-life comes roaring back in.

For Florence to turn her fairy-tale summer into a happily-ever-after, she’ll have to dive head-first into real life and all its chaos.


This book really is a bookworm’s dream romance!

I’ve loved Lucy’s writing since reading her first book How to Bake a New Beginning. She writes with such heart and emotion that I’m incapable of putting her books down once I get started! Her characters are always kind and sweet – the perfect best friend’s on the page.

Florence was a wonderful, quirky, day-dreamy character and the settings Lucy created were a bookworm’s delight, especially the coffee shop! And who wouldn’t want a little hut to sit and read in and a handsome, equally quirky hero, to bring you tea?! Throw in a good amount of romantic tension and you’ve got yourself a great summer read.

This was another fantastic, uplifting and wonderfully dreamy read from Lucy and I can’t wait to see what she brings us next.
