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.

    By Pizzaisalltheway
    Such a great book. It really made me feel apart of the story and wasn’t your average romance book. Loved the character development & the ending
  • This is romcom perfection

    By Lorela1 0891
    Loved it start to finish. Great back and forth dialogue between all the characters.
  • One of the best

    By italianka
    This was one of the best romance books I’ve read in last few years. It’s smart, funny, with beautifully written characters and it feels like real life.

    It was a little hard for me to get into it at the beginning, but once I got over the small bump it was such a good read. Couldn’t put it down!
  • Finally I know the other side of the small town trope

    By what_it_izzz33
    Loved this book and it’s take on the typical small town tropes. Nora is exactly who and what she wants to be where she wants to be it and is wonderfully unapologetic about it. Charlie is just my fav.
  • So Good!

    By Michellereed8
    Just an overall great read.
  • Absolutely stunning

    By Iamrachelgenevieve
    A beautiful story that explores convoluted family dynamics and the importance of not only going through one’s emotions but truly taking the time to feel said emotions. I don’t have any words other then yes to all of it. Well done Emily Henry!
