“Literary agent Nora is tired of always playing the ambitious big-city ice queen whose boyfriends leave her for new lives (and new relationships) in small-town America. That’s why, when Nora’s sister insists on taking her on a trip to a little town that’s straight out of one of her authors’ novels, and imposes a list of romance tropes to experience, Nora is doubtful she can find her happily-ever-after. Cue Charlie, an editor and Nora’s nemesis from New York, who mysteriously shows up in town and slowly reveals that there’s a lot more to him than his surly exterior. Will Nora finally break out of her doomed pattern and find true love? Henry (Beach ReadPeople We Meet on Vacation) has written another sweet and swoon-worthy novel with plenty of witty dialogue, an evocative setting, and strong characters. VERDICT Truly a book for book lovers and a romance for romance lovers, this novel will delight Henry’s fans, as well as readers of smart, sexy, and funny romances with emotional depth and storylines featuring family dynamics.”—Reviewed by Migdalia Jimenez
