The Honey-Don’t List

Gallery: S. & S. Mar. 2020. 320p. ISBN 9781982145217. $28. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
Carey Douglas has worked alongside Melissa and Rusty Tripp for years, starting as a teenager in their brick-and-mortar store, Comb + Honey, and continuing as Melissa’s assistant as they built their television empire. She works constantly, but Carey has a condition that affects her hands and her insurance is too good to give up. James McCann, meanwhile, was promised a job as a structural engineer but functions as Rusty’s assistant. He hates fetching coffee and managing schedules, but his last job was at a firm plagued by high-profile scandals, and he wouldn’t be employable elsewhere. Melissa and Rusty are about to go on a West Coast tour to celebrate their highly anticipated new guide to making marriage work. Unfortunately, they can’t stand each other, and with a new Netflix series about to drop and so much riding on the success of the book, the company’s publicist insists that Carey and James travel with the Tripps and keep them in line.
VERDICT The author duo’s many fans will enjoy this charming romance. [see the Q&A, p. 71.]
