Book Synopsis



An insightful, delightful new novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Beach Read and People We Meet on Vacation.

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

Nora Stephens' life is books--she's read them all--and she is not that type of heroine. Not the plucky one, not the laidback dream girl, and especially not the sweetheart. In fact, the only people Nora is a heroine for are her clients, for whom she lands enormous deals as a cutthroat literary agent, and her beloved little sister Libby.

Which is why she agrees to go to Sunshine Falls, North Carolina for the month of August when Libby begs her for a sisters' trip away--with visions of a small town 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 country doctor or bulging-forearmed bartender, Nora keeps bumping into Charlie Lastra, a bookish brooding editor from back in the city. It would be a meet-cute if not for the fact that they've met many times and it's never been cute.

If Nora knows she's not an ideal heroine, Charlie knows he's nobody's hero, but as they are thrown together again and again--in a series of coincidences no editor worth their salt would allow--what they discover might just unravel the carefully crafted stories they've written about themselves.

"Emily Henry never fails to deliver ... this may just be her best yet."--Taylor Jenkins Reid



Review Quotes




"Book Lovers is a rom-com lover's dream of a book. It is razor-sharp and modern, featuring a fierce heroine who does not apologize for her ambition and heartfelt discussions of grief. Readers know that Emily Henry never fails to deliver great banter and a romance to swoon over but this may just be her best yet. A breath of fresh air."
--Taylor Jenkins Reid, New York Times bestselling author of Malibu Rising

You KNOW I love a book--and a writer--when I bust out my trusty ballpoint and absolutely maul the pages...and that's exactly what I just did to the divine Emily Henry. I could not devour Book Lovers fast enough. Emily Henry is pure delight. I'm utterly enchanted by her wry, self-aware sense of humor, the relish that she brings to every cleverly crafted sentence, and her irrepressible love for love."
--Katherine Center, New York Times bestselling author of Things You Save in a Fire and How to Walk Away

"I would follow Emily Henry anywhere. A small town, a literary enterprise, a bookstore to rescue, and sex in moonlit streams? Yes, please! Book Lovers is sexy, funny, and smart. Another perfectly satisfying read from the unstoppable Emily Henry."
--Emma Straub, New York Times bestselling author of All Adults Here

Emily Henry's books are a gift, the perfect balance between steamy and sweet. The prose is effortless, the characters charming. The only downside is reaching the end.
--V.E. Schwab, New York Times bestselling author The Invisible Life of Addie LaRu

Charming, earnest, and clever, Book Lovers is Schitt's Creek for book nerds. A total delight for anyone who's ever secretly rooted for the career girl in a Hallmark movie. Nobody does it quite like Emily Henry."
--Casey McQuiston, New York Times bestselling author of One Last Stop

I’m really glad I gave this book a chance. I wouldn’t say it was my favorite book but it was such a good read. I loved the romance and the banter between the characters. It felt a little boring at times but overall enjoyable.

Oh my goodness. I absolutely adored this book. I laughed out loud so many times. I loved the banter with Nora & Charlie. Nora's nightmare brain. I loved Libby a breath of fresh air. Their sisterhood. Then there were happy tears and sad tears. The quirky small town and learning more about how a book becomes a book. I wish I could give this book a thousand stars.
