Publisher Description

“One of my favorite authors.”—Colleen Hoover

An insightful, delightful, instant #1 New York Times bestseller from the 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.

She loves her job and is passionate toward it which makes it difficult for her love life . But then comes in Charlie . From their first meeting , we know that both are headstrong career driven people . I just love all the romance in this book 🦋🦋✨✨🌸”

Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes“If you like Hallmark movies, then you'll definitely enjoy reading this book. As a firstborn, I really reasonated with Nora, especially how protective of Libby she was because I tend to do the same with my siblings. This book is such an easy read and very heatwarming”

Beaming Face with Smiling Eyes“i honestly didn’t really enjoy this one as much i thought :(( but tbh when i read this book, i was in a weird head space, so it probably had to do something with that. i am definitely thinking of re-reading, because i actually really love Emily Henry’s writing and how there’s so much more to her books than just the the romance 🫶🏼🫶🏼”
