FICTION / Romance / Romantic Comedy
A literary agent who has always done everything by the book must decide if happily ever after is worth changing her whole life for in this insightful, delightful new novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Beach Read and People We Meet on Vacation.

Nora Stephens has read the books and seen the movies, and she is not that type of heroine. In fact, she’s the other one. The leading man’s cold girlfriend back in the city who he must break free of to pursue his true happiness with a sweet baker or florist…or Christmas tree farmer.



The only people Nora is a heroine for are her author clients, for whom she lands enormous deals as a cutthroat literary agent, and her little sister, Libby, who she practically raised. Nora loves her more than anything in the world, and so when Libby asks her to escape the city for a few weeks to get them both out of their ruts, she agrees.



But Sunshine Falls, North Carolina, is far from the idyllic vacation spot Libby had in mind for their small-town romance bucket list adventure. Especially when, instead of a handsome country doctor or bulging-forearmed bartender, the man Nora keeps bumping into is Charlie Lastra, a bookish, hardheaded, arrogant editor from back in the city. It would be a meet-cute if not for the fact that they’ve met dozens of times and it’s never been cute.



As time passes, though, Nora begins to realize she might have more in common with Charlie—beyond a passion for books—than she’d thought. Nora just wants to do what she’s always done and make the right decisions—about her love life, her job, her sister. What if the right decision for Nora is taking a page out of an entirely different book?

[Book Lovers] is multilayered and the characters’ familial challenges are complex. By both playing to and overtly subverting romance tropes and archetypes like the high-powered big city woman who neglects her family and the life-affirming power of small-town life, this novel delivers an insightful comedic meditation on love, family and going your own way.“—NPR
