Two book lovers. Two broken hearts. One fresh chapter?


Still grieving the death of her best friend, Erin knows she needs to start living – but has no idea how.

Then she loses her favourite book, a heavily annotated copy of To Kill A Mockingbird containing her friend’s last gift.


When James finds Erin’s note-filled book in his local community bookshelf, it sparks a life-changing conversation. He writes his own message for her to find, inviting her to meet him in the margins of Great Expectations. As the book exchange continues, they both begin to open up . . . and perhaps fall in love.


But Erin and James have a shared history that neither of them has guessed. How will Erin react when she discovers that the other writer isn’t a stranger at all – but the person she swore she’d never forgive?

Funny, heartwarming and romantic, THE BOOK SWAP is story of second chances and new beginnings. It is also a heartfelt love letter to books and the power of reading.

Tessa Bickers studied journalism at Bournemouth university, and went on to co-present a breakfast radio show in the South West. Moving into celebrity news, she interviewed some of the biggest names in show business, including Leonardo DiCaprio and the cast of Sex and the City.

Tessa started her creative career as a singer-songwriter and, after a few failed X Factor auditions, she went on to perform at Glastonbury Festival and Secret Garden Party with her band Tess and the Tellers. These days she has replaced her guitar with a keyboard, and songs for books.

THE BOOK SWAP is her debut novel, publishing in 2024.
