This is one that both Kate and I have read. And it is one that we both really enjoyed 🙂 If you like all the usual romantic comedy tropes, then this one is for you. It has all the usual fare, plus a sarcastic and cynical take on the exact thing that it is.


Goodreads synopsis:

One summer. Two rivals. A plot twist they didn’t see coming…

Nora is a cut-throat literary agent at the top of her game. Her whole life is books.

Charlie is an editor with a gift for creating bestsellers. And he’s Nora’s work nemesis.

Nora has been through enough break-ups to know she’s the woman men date before they find their happy-ever-after. That’s why Nora’s sister has persuaded her to swap her desk in the city for a month’s holiday in Sunshine Falls, North Carolina. It’s a small town straight out of a romance novel, but instead of meeting sexy lumberjacks, handsome doctors or cute bartenders, Nora keeps bumping into…Charlie.

She’s no heroine. He’s no hero. So can they take a page out of an entirely different book?


OK, let’s start with the fact that Becca hadn’t even finished this book, before she decided to go and buy her own copy! It’s such a fun, easy going book, full of sarcasm, wit and emotion. We loved the characters, especially Libby and Charlie. And the setting was superb.

The book is easy to read and fun, it is relaxing and not demanding. Something that we were looking for and found. The humour is sharp and endearing, and will appeal to everyone.

The storyline was unique and yet familiar, so it was interesting and pulled us in, but we also knew how this was going to end and most of the bumps along the way.

Overall we loved this book. Did you?
