“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.
