Book Review: "Book Lovers" by Emily Henry

They always were helping others—at the expense of themselves.

Good lord, I loved this book. This is a terrific rom-com but like all of Emily Henry’s books there’s so much more to it, as two people realize they don’t have to sacrifice their own happiness to be someone’s hero.

Nora is a literary agent extraordinaire. She fights for her clients and puts work above everything—except her sister, Libby. For as long as she can remember, she’s taken care of Libby, dropping everything to ensure her happiness and safety, even now that they’re adults.

That is why she agrees to accompany her sister on a month-long jaunt to the small town of Sunshine Falls, North Carolina—the setting of one of Nora’s client’s most-famous books and a favorite of Libby’s. Libby has prepared a checklist of adventures they’re going to have and things she wants her sister to do, to transform her life of all work and no play.

But the town isn’t quite what Nora—who loves living in NYC—pictured. And instead of embarking on a relationship with a local farmer or carpenter, she is inexplicably drawn to Charlie Lastra, an editor from New York, who seems to be hanging around in Sunshine Falls, too. Charlie is sarcastic, hard-to-please, and Nora can’t seem to get him out of her system, especially when they start working together on her client’s book.

But everyone has issues they’re dealing with and secrets they’re keeping close to themselves. Will Nora be willing to risk it all for Charlie, or will her happiness take a back seat again? Will Charlie let his guard down for Nora? And what hurdles stand in their way?

This was just excellent.
