Birdy just got her dream job.

The problem is, it's not hers.

Warning- this is not your typical rom com.

Have you ever imagined running away from your life?

Well Birdy Finch didn't just imagine it. She did it. Which might've been an error.

And the life she's run into? Her best friend, Heather's.

The only problem is, she hasn't told Heather.

Actually there are a few other problems...

Can Birdy carry off a summer pretending to be her best friend (who incidentally is a world-class wine expert)?

And can she stop herself from falling for the first man she's ever actually liked (but who thinks she's someone else)?

Lizzy Dent (mis)spent her early twenties working in Scotland in hospitality, in a hotel not unlike the one in this novel. She somehow ended up in a glamorous job travelling the world creating content for various TV companies, including MTV, Channel 4, Cartoon Network, the BBC and ITV. But she always knew that writing was the thing she wanted to do, if only she could find the confidence. After publishing three young adult novels, she decided to write a novel that reflected the real women she knew, who don't always know where they're going in life, but who always have fun doing it. The Summer Job is that novel.

Reviews for The Summer Job

Engaging, heartwarming and SO MUCH FUN. I bloody loved it -- MARIAN KEYES Fresh, funny and filled with delicious food and wine. It made me long for a summer in Scotland with Birdy and all the team at Loch Dorn -- BETH O'LEARY What a welcome escape; it's witty and funny and it packs an emotional punch too. Loved it, I'm in the queue for more Lizzy -- JOSIE SILVER Fresh, funny and oh so relatable - the perfect tonic -- ABBIE GREAVES Fun with a capital F . . . If you've ever felt you're getting left behind in life, or don't have everything worked out quite yet, this is the book for you -- SOPHIE COUSENS I fell for Birdy on the very first page and inhaled the rest of her story . . . A brilliantly original plot paired with fabulously funny writing - a pure joy to read! -- HELLY ACTON It's really great - so gossipy, warm and funny -- BETH MORREY One of the funniest and sexiest books of the year. As soon as I finished it, I wanted to read it again. Do not miss this one! -- EMILY HENRY
