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.

Super fun read

This book is witty, unexpected and very well written. It was such a great find, now I want to read everything else the author has written.

Another Book to Love from Emily Henry

Loved the book!! The set up is so much fun. The way she digs into the RomCom trope of city people is beautiful and insightful. Henry usually hooks me with her wit, then her insights about life and love and books- it feels like having a conversation with your best friend, if your best friend is extremely eloquent.

Obsessed with Emily Henry

I always purchase the book and the audio book so I can listen on my commute and re-read whenever my heart pleases when it comes to EH books. They bring me so much joy. They make me laugh, cry, swoon, and remind me of why books are magic. Thank you for these amazing characters. Thank you for never failing to excite your readers.
