Nora Stephens is a high-powered literary agent with platinum blonde hair and a kickass Manhattan apartment. The only thing she loves more than her bestselling client is her little sister Libby, who is very pregnant with her third child. Libby suggests a vacation to the small North Carolina hamlet of her favorite romance novel. Nora, recently left by a beau who falls in love with a girl next door on his travels (again) begrudgingly complies but even in escaping to a small town, she can't avoid her professional nemesis, Charlie. Emily Henry is at her peak with publishing world and romance genre inside jokes. The heart of the story lies in the sweetness of sisterhood and bravery in the face of big change.— Celeste
“This book is perfect. I was so happy to see Emily Henry return to enemies-to-lovers. Dare I say it, Book Lovers is even better than Beach Read! The editor vs agent drama, the small-town checklist, and god, the steamy scenes — read this book!”
— Michelle Stiles, Magers & Quinn Booksellers, Minneapolis, MN
The only people Nora Stephens is a heroine for are her clients, for whom she lands enormous deals as a cutthroat literary agent, and her sister Libby. Which is why she agrees to go to North Carolina when Libby begs her for a sisters' trip away - with visions of a transformation for Nora, who she's convinced needs to become the heroine in her own story. But instead of picnics in meadows, or run-ins with a handsome doctor or bulging-forearmed bartender, Nora keeps bumping into Charlie Lastra, a brooding editor from back in the city. As they are thrown together what they discover might just unravel the carefully crafted stories they've written about themselves.
