A romance writer who no longer believes in love and a literary writer stuck in a rut engage in a summer-long challenge that may just upend everything they believe about happily ever afters.

Augustus Everett is an acclaimed author of literary fiction. January Andrews writes bestselling romance. When she pens a happily ever after, he kills off his entire cast.

They’re polar opposites.

In fact, the only thing they have in common is that for the next three months, they’re living in neighboring beach houses, broke, and bogged down with writer’s block.

Until, one hazy evening, one thing leads to another and they strike a deal designed to force them out of their creative ruts: Augustus will spend the summer writing something happy, and January will pen the next Great American Novel. She’ll take him on field trips worthy of any rom-com montage, and he’ll take her to interview surviving members of a backwoods death cult (obviously). Everyone will finish a book and no one will fall in love. Really.

Story Locale: Michigan

THE PERFECT (YES, REALLY!!) BEACH READ: With a charming lake town setting, family secrets, and delicious romantic tension, this is the ideal summer escape, and the kind of sweet spot elevated romance/women’s fiction that booksellers and readers are asking for

SPARKLING NEW TALENT: Emily has a fresh, smart, effervescent, witty voice, and a gorgeous style that opens the door for a long fiction career ahead. Like her characters, she’s in her late twenties and (perhaps unlike her characters) poised to write a book a year

PERFECT ROM-COM FOR BOOK LOVERS: Emily’s wry observations about the way we all judge books (and genres) by their covers runs as a pointed and funny undercurrent to this satisfying, feel-good story

TWO-BOOK DEAL: We scooped up two books in a preempt just before the Frankfurt Book Fair (rights also sold in Germany, Serbia, Italy, Sweden and the Netherlands)

SIMULTANEOUS UK PUB: We sold rights to Viking UK (the editor of ONE DAY IN DECEMBER), and they will be publishing simultaneously

ADULT DEBUT: Emily Henry has written YA for Razorbill and Katherine Teagan Books

Emily Henry writes stories about love and family for both teens and adults. She studied creative writing at Hope College and the New York Center for Art & Media Studies, and now spends most of her time in Cincinnati, Ohio, and the part of Kentucky just beneath it.

Praise for Beach Read

“This is a touching and heartfelt book about love, betrayal, grief, failure, and learning how to love again. I adored going along on Gus and January’s journey, and I closed this book with a satisfied sigh.”—Jasmine Guillory, New York Times bestselling author of The Proposal

Beach Read is original, sparkling bright, and layered with feeling. Has trying to see the world through your longtime crush/rival’s eyes ever been this potent and poignant? If whipcrack banter and foggy sexual tension is your catnip, you’ll adore this book.”—Sally Thorne, USA Today bestselling author of The Hating Game and 99 Percent Mine
