“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.” – Goodreads

THOUGHTS

Say hello to one of my most anticipated reads of the year, and it did not disappoint. I liked Beach Read, and I LOVED People We Meet on Vacation. This book had me actually laughing out loud throughout. Like for real, I laughed so many times audibly on nearly every page.

Nora and her sister Libby are HILARIOUS. Their relationship reminds me so much of the relationship my youngest sister and I have. We’re the type of people that once we’re together the jokes just start rolling with reckless abandonment for those around us, and if we’re in a situation where we’re not supposed to be laughing, everything becomes insanely funnier (the local theatre show with an 11 year old Old Man Whittaker, anyone?)

Ughhhh, and Nora is a tall MC. 5’10” over here 🙋🏼‍♀️

Charlie doesn’t finish last chapter of a series! Which is literally the reason I kept reading this one so long; I didn’t want it to end.

Ugh, I loved this book so much!
