Flora Fielding is at rock bottom. She has just turned thirty, has the relocation clients from hell on her back and, when her live-in boyfriend dumps her during a holiday to San Francisco leaving her without a home to return to, she decides to track down her cousin Bella, who emigrated there a couple of years previously, in the hope of some home-grown tea and sympathy. As a nurse in a San Francisco hospital, Bella is a shining example of successful womanhood. But when she arrives at Bella's apartment, Flora is shocked to find the reality is rather different. Instead of gliding around a hospital, Bella is eking out a living as the lead singer in an Abba tribute band. It's not exactly ER, is it? To try to reclaim their lives, Flora, Bella and Bella's GBF Toby, agree to do one thing that frightens them. For Bella this involves trying to make a career out of her music (as well as facing up to some serious issues at the hospital where she works); for Toby it is overcoming his fear of relationships; and for Flora it's a question of learning that one's true home does not necessarily involve bricks and mortar - a journey that throws her into the path of quirky social-network designer Josh, a man who not only has her reassessing her feelings for her ex, but makes her realise there is a whole lot of life out there she has been missing out on. Things seem to be on the up - until Bella is rushed into hospital with an ectopic pregnancy and an unwanted visitor turns up just as Flora and Josh are about to share an intimate moment... And just like that they're right back where they started. Author Biography Allie Spencer is the author of three novels- Tug of Love, which won the Romantic Novelists' Association New Writers' Scheme prize for the best debut of 2009 and was shortlisted for the 2010 Melissa Nathan Award for Comedy Romance, The Not-So-Secret Diary of a City Girl and Summer Loving.

Generic Used Book Descriptions:

Good: These books have been read, but are still clean and possibly with minimal staining. Some slight yellowing may be present on the pages, and this may be covered in clear plastic seal eg Duraseal. Cover should be without holes/tears, but may show signs of wear around the edges, and spine may be creased. No pages should be missing.

We strive to reduce unnecessary landfill by taking used books, second-hand books, paperback books, hardback books, pre-loved books, great reads and recycled books and then redistributing them throughout New Zealand, Australia and the rest of the world. Readers can connect online with book titles, helping them find new homes, and support reusing and re-loving books that are affordable. At Bookworms you’ll find cheap books, hidden gems and even some lost treasures. We have a passion for sustainability, being eco-friendly, eco-conscious and we aim to incorporate that into all that we do.

At Bookworms we keep things simple. So we charge one fee no matter the size of your order.

$5.00 - Any non-rural address New Zealand wide.
$9.00 - Any rural address New Zealand wide

Free Shipping

To qualify for free shipping if you are sending your order to a New Zealand postal address (rural or non-rural), your total order value must be over $30. You should see this as a shipping option at checkout.


Order before 5pm on a business day and we'll have the courier ordered for the following business days. This should have your order on your doorstep within 3 working days (allow slightly longer for Rural)


We track all our orders, so if you are wondering where your order is either get in touch with us, or check the tracking link in the email you will receive after the courier has been booked. If you are having trouble with shipping, please get in touch and we can follow this up with the courier.

Overseas Shipping

While we can ship overseas, in the current climate (COVID-19) the cost of sending internationally has doubled (& for some countries even tripled) and The Bookworms Team have had to price shipping outside of New Zealand accordingly. We have faith the world will return to some semblance of normal and we can go back to being a more reasonable part of the global economy. The flat fee still applies for overseas orders.

Australia - $20
Rest of the world - $40

Because we are primarily dealing with second-hand products of varying conditions, The Bookworms Team does its very best to describe the condition of its products as accurately as possible. Our approach on this is that we don't want our customers to have any surprises when they receive their order. We'd hate for you to be waiting for a book and then it turns up in an unexpected condition. 

However we know that it can happen, the quality of the product delivered may not be what you expected, maybe we missed the mark when describing the product condition. Whatever happens, please get in touch with us to explain the issue and we will do our best to help out.

Depending on the situation, some ways we can help are:

  1. Provide a full refund of the price of the product.
  2. Refund a portion of the price of the product to match its condition.
  3. Source another copy of the product to meet your expectations.

In all situations we will abide by The Consumer Guarantees Act and The Fair Trading Act, but at the end of the day getting a book to right place with the right person is the aim of this game. We also reserve the right to request you to return the product at our expense, but this will not always be required, if it can still be used. 

The first step is contacting us if you would like to discuss the quality of the product you've received. We also love to hear from you with any positive feedback so we can make sure we keep doing the good stuff too.
