“One of my favorite authors.”—Colleen Hoover

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.

    I loved this book so much! If I could just sit down and ignore my real life responsibilities, I could’ve gobbled it up in one sitting. Bringing Gilmore Girls vibes and a really fun take on enemies-to-lovers. The chemistry between our main characters is nearly instant. Very witty, fun, and enjoyable read.

    I turned the last page and my heart was so, so full. Profound, funny, sad at times and entirely lovable from start to finish.

    She does it again. This book feels like this deep longing, it is everything that I love about reading. The relationships in this book are so beautiful and deep. If I could rate this 10 out of 5 I would.
