Nora Stephens has read the books and seen the movies, and she is not that type of heroine. In fact, she's the other one. The leading man's cold girlfriend back in the city who he must break free of to pursue his true happiness with a sweet baker or florist…or Christmas tree farmer.
The only people Nora is a heroine for are her author clients, for whom she lands enormous deals as a cutthroat literary agent, and her little sister, Libby, who she practically raised. Nora loves her more than anything in the world, and so when Libby asks her to escape the city for a few weeks to get them both out of their ruts, she agrees.
But Sunshine Falls, North Carolina, is far from the idyllic vacation spot Libby had in mind for their small-town romance bucket list adventure. Especially when, instead of a handsome country doctor or bulging-forearmed bartender, the man Nora keeps bumping into is Charlie Lastra, a bookish, hardheaded, arrogant editor from back in the city. It would be a meet-cute if not for the fact that they've met dozens of times and it's never been cute.
As time passes, though, Nora begins to realize she might have more in common with Charlie — beyond a passion for books — than she'd thought. Nora just wants to do what she's always done and make the right decisions — about her love life, her job, her sister. What if the right decision for Nora is taking a page out of an entirely different book? (From Berkley)
