Best-selling author Henry (Beach Read) is back with an exciting new novel that readers will devour. Literary agent Nora Stephens is intense and demanding but adored by the authors she represents. Nora eats, drinks, and breathes books, and expects others to follow suit. When her pregnant sister convinces her to spend the summer in Sunshine Falls, the small-town setting of her favorite romance novel, Nora can’t say refuse. What she doesn’t know is that cocky Charlie Lastra, a New York editor, will also be in Sunshine Falls. Charlie and Nora find themselves repeatedly thrown together, whether looking for the town’s only Wi-Fi signal, ordering drinks to appease the scary bartender, or discussing Bigfoot erotica. The two thought that enemies-to-lovers was just a romance trope, but they soon see this trope playing out in real life. The audio is brilliantly narrated by Julie Whelan, who infuses her signature humor into Henry’s characters. Whelan’s perfectly timed delivery adds both a comedic and an emotional flair.
VERDICT Fans of small-town romances, realistically flawed characters, and witty humor will be enchanted and may rate this as Henry’s best novel to date.
