A second chance at love…

When globe-trotting Emmy first fell for first-aider William on a freezing New Year’s Eve, she really believed that their love would go the distance.

But when she returns to Australia, her letters start to go unanswered and her emails bounce back unread, Emmy decides it’s time to pick up the pieces of her broken heart and start afresh in London.

So she’s shocked when William walks in on her very first day at her new job! Even worse, he’s hotter than ever. But why did he disappear for so long? What has he been hiding? And could this really be their second chance at falling in love…?

Perfect for fans of Carole Mathews, Mhairi McFarlane and Carrie Hope Fletcher.

Bookstores in Melbourne

Despite living in a tiny country town, I am a Melbourne girl through and through. I went to RMIT university in Bourke Street, and spent more time in bookstores and HMV than classrooms. Along with our famed café culture, we’re also home to an impressive array of bookstores. Here are just some of the places I rummage through whenever I’m in town.


This is my first drop. Yeah, it’s a big chain, but their range is huge. There are books, gifts, and a café, which has been a great place for a book launch on more than one occasion. I’ve spent hours in here with friends, bloggers who became friends, and anyone who happens to visit me.

There’s also a great British food store a few floors above this, too.

The Paperback Bookshop

At the very top end of Bourke Street, the Paperback Bookshop has been open since the 1960s. An independent that has outlived many of the chain stores, they’ve got a massive array of fiction and non-fiction titles and are often open after dark. Pop on in there for something reminiscent of some of the older London stores.


At the heart of our café culture, Readings sits perfectly on Lygon Street, making it an easy choice for my list. A short ride up the Number 8 tram, my Melbourne afternoon usually goes something along the lines of Readings, Seasons Provedore for a big pasta dinner, and Brunetti’s for dessert. Books, pasta, cake – all the good things in life! Recently, Readings has opened a YA branch right next door, which is great to see.

And, if Lygon Street isn’t your scene, Readings has several locations spread across Melbourne – giving you the most of your tourist experience!

City Basement Books

This is where I spent a large chunk of time during school hours. Browsing, buying, making lists of books I’d never get to read. There’s always something for everyone down here. There’s no specialty, it’s just books, books, and more books.

The Bookshop at Queenscliff

No, it’s not in Melbourne. Get in that car and head on down to the coast, where you’ll find this lovely little gem on Hesse Street (where they filmed parts of The Cry, if you’re keen for TV knowledge).

It’s a small shop with a big heart, and their monthly book club means that I get to read outside my comfort zone. I don’t get to book club as often as I’d like (sorry, Mathew and Lisa), but I do hold it dear.

Honorary Mention

State Library of Victoria

You’ll find the State Library of Victoria on Swanston St, directly across from Melbourne Central. It’s one of the most Instagrammed places in Melbourne, and you’ll soon see why when you step into the reading room. It’s domed ceiling and multiple floors, combined with beautifully symmetrical desk spaces make for the most incredible pictures.

If you’re all booked out for the day (say, what?), there’s always an exhibition or two happening if that’s more to your taste.
