An insightful, delightful new novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Beach Read and People We Meet on Vacation
One summer. Two rivals. A plot twist they didn't see coming...
Nora Stephens' life is books—she’s read them all—and she is not that type of heroine. Not the plucky one, not the laidback dream girl, and especially not the sweetheart. In fact, the only people Nora is a heroine for are her clients, for whom she lands enormous deals as a cutthroat literary agent, and her beloved little sister Libby.
Which is why she agrees to go to Sunshine Falls, North Carolina for the month of August when Libby begs her for a sisters’ trip away—with visions of a small town transformation for Nora, who she’s convinced needs to become the heroine in her own story. But instead of picnics in meadows, or run-ins with a handsome country doctor or bulging-forearmed bartender, Nora keeps bumping into Charlie Lastra, a bookish brooding editor from back in the city. It would be a meet-cute if not for the fact that they’ve met many times and it’s never been cute.
If Nora knows she’s not an ideal heroine, Charlie knows he’s nobody’s hero, but as they are thrown together again and again—in a series of coincidences no editor worth their salt would allow—what they discover might just unravel the carefully crafted stories they’ve written about themselves.

Fully range of emotions - from laughing out loud (a lot) to a few sweet tears, this book is perfect. My only regret is the lack of sleep that I got last night because I didn’t want to put it down.

Obsessed

I have read over 40 rom coms this year and no one comes close to Emily Henry. My favorite book of the year so far is hers (Beach Read), and now this is my second. She writes with such realness and depth, but is also so hilarious! I truly laugh and cry with every book and this one was no different. I love that her books not only bring a full, beautiful romance, but also explore so much each characters inner-workings and take them on a journey of self-exploration and healing. Such an incredible process in all her books, and this one was no different. Couldn’t put it down, but tried to so it wouldn’t be over! So so good! Read it and read her other books!

Emily Henry did it again!
