Book Lovers by Emily Henry

This month’s LJ Ross Book Club selection is Emily Henry’s witty romance, Book Lovers, which tells the tale of cutthroat literary agent, Nora, and book editor, Charlie – rivals who are thrown together in a small American town for one long summer. A classic enemies-to-lovers tale, this contemporary romance is a cut above the rest, with layers of satire directed towards the very genre itself.  

LJ’s Thoughts:

‘As a change from my usual preference for crime fiction or American noir, this was such a lovely, light-hearted read. There were laugh-out-loud moments throughout, and a palpable tension between the characters that felt believable and drove the story onward, carrying the reader along with its pacy dialogue. I found myself rooting for the characters and, after all, who doesn’t like a happy ending? I’d recommend this book to anyone who’s looking for a bit of light relief!’
