"Original, sparkling bright, and layered with feeling..."—Sally Thorne, author of The Hating Game

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.

    Absolutely lovely story, with so much depth. The characters are so wonderful and the story has much more of a backbone than many rom-com books. Truly can’t recommend it enough!
  • So GOOD!!!!

    As a romance, this delivers a delicious and complicated and real relationship. As a book about family and grief this hits on so much truth. As a book about writing, about being a woman and writing, this book spoke directly to my soul. Love love love it.
