Description

Synopsis: “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.”Reviews: "Once I started Beach Read I legit did not put it down."One of...

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.

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.
