Heads up- once you have finished the book, be sure to read the Author‘s Note at the end. It “made” the book for me! This book had more depth than I was expecting. We watch the main character, 50-year-old Sonny, struggle to come to terms with a tragedy from her childhood that has haunted her all her life. It is ultimately a hopeful story, and Sonny is fortunate to have a wonderful mom and friends who help her on her journey. ⬇️

julieclair Sonny is a TV meteorologist, and I really enjoyed learning about her job. I also enjoyed learning about Traverse City, Michigan, where the book is set. Now I want to visit there! It‘s now on its way to you, @Jerdencon ! 😀 #LMPBC Round 16 #GroupW #JumpStart2023 #Booked2023 #ReadTheUSA2023 #Michigan 18h

January is a romance author who doesn‘t believe in the Happily ever after anymore. Not since she found out her dad had a beach-side love nest with his long-time mistress.
When she finds out her college rival, Augustus, a fellow author although he is in the literary genre, rented the house next door, January is forced to face her feelings for him, her father, and her beloved romance genre.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️I first read this in June 2020, and I didn‘t remember liking it,though my first review did give it 4 stars, but on the reread, I‘m not sure what I didn‘t like the first time. I thought it was honest, funny, compelling me to pick it back up. I again loved her portrayal of romance novels helping readers through hard times - I never read romance before spring 2020 & I‘m grateful to the Emily Henrys for giving us these little pockets of joy.

When I went on my beach vacation back in early November, I had packed three Emily Henry books with, but decided to leave behind two of them (I know realize that I should have left two others behind instead). I ended up taking this one along with me and I thoroughly enjoyed the book. I had heard so many good things about the book that I thought it was too overhyped. Boy was I wrong; a very good romance book that didn‘t get cheesy. #12booksof2022

I definitely see why all the hype! The chemistry between the leads is super steamy without being raunchy, & the main character is SO honest & relatable. I kept seeing myself in her even though we‘re nothing alike.

From now on @StayCurious is choosing all of my romance novels! Renee, this is the second romance you picked for me that I loved 💜Looking forward to chatting with you about this one! #LitsyLoveBookBuddy #Pantone2023 #CherryTomato

I only finished this because of an upcoming book discussion…

For a long lasting series, this just wasn‘t for me. The female MC is made to feel stupid - she sometimes says the wrong words - but then at times plays up on this “stupidity.” While cozies are not usually the best written nor have the most original plot lines, this one just seemed way too scattered and chaotic and almost folksy. Not for me, but the chocolate sounds yummy! #192025 #2002
