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.

Shereads’ Most Anticipated Books of Summer 2020

“Reader, I swooned! Beach Read is a breath of fresh air. My heart ached for January, and Gus is to die for - a steamy, smart and perceptive romance. I was engrossed!”—Josie Silver, #1 New York Times bestselling author of One Day in December

“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 long time 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

"Beach Read is exactly the witty, charming, and swoony novel we always want; it also happens to be the unexpected wallop of emotional wisdom and sly social commentary we need right now. I adored it." —Julia Whelan, author of My Oxford Year

"Beach Read by Emily Henry has everything the title promises--a romping plot, family secrets, and the thrill of falling in love, all set on the sweeping shores of eastern Lake Michigan. I cannot wait to read what Henry writes next.” —Amy E. Reichert, author The Coincidence of Coconut Cake and The Optimist’s Guide to Letting Go

“Delightfully romantic and slyly poignant, Beach Read is brimming with crackling banter and engrossing prose. It has every flavor of booklover catnip: rivalry, creative struggle, family secrets, and the sweet head-over-heels tumble into love. Emily Henry's Beach Read is 2020's perfect anywhere read.”—Christina Lauren, New York Times bestselling author of The Unhoneymooners

“If you liked Sally Thorne’s The Hating Game and Linda Holmes’s Evvie Drake Starts Over, you will definitely be into this, which feels like their spawn. (No one asked me to say this, by the way. I’m just high on that happy-sad feeling of finishing a book I enjoyed, that I wish wasn’t over.) Well played.”—Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan, best-selling authors of The Royal We

"Readers are sure to fall hard for this meta, heartfelt take on the romance genre."Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"A heartfelt look at taking second chances, in life and in love."Kirkus Reviews

“This will still sweep readers off their feet. January’s first-person narration is suitably poetic and effervescent, the small-town beach setting is charming, and the romance is achingly swoony.”Booklist
