"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. But as the summer stretches on, January discovers a gaping plot hole in the story she's been telling herself about her own life, and begins to wonder what other things she might have gotten wrong, including her ideas about the man next door"--… (més)

January Andrews was not in a good place; she had lost her father and found out he was cheating on her mum, she had broken up with her long-term boyfriend so she had nowhere to live, she had a deadline for her next book which she hadn't started yet because she had writer's block and she was flat broke. So she had come to North Bear Shores because she had inherited the house that her dad shared with his mistress - then she discovered that her next door neighbour was her college nemesis who had criticised her writing style for always having happy endings, competed with her over every grade and was also a published author.

So she and Gus made a deal; he would try to write a rom-com book with a happy ending and she would try to write a grim-dark book full of Meaning and whoever sold their book first would win. As part of the deal, they also threw in weekly 'lessons' for their respective styles of writing - and along the way ... well, you can guess what happens. Fortunately (for me, anyway), Emily Henry is into happy endings.

I'll just mention a couple of points on names in the book; I kept confusing Pete (who was a woman whose real name was nothing like 'Pete') with Gus initially, especially in one scene where he was the only male in a roomful of women. And it only took me more than half the book to twig that both the main characters were named for months of the year (January & August) 🤦‍♀️

This was fun to read. Somehow, I also felt it had a bit more substance than other romance books I've read recently (granted, romance isn't my preferred genre though).

At the end of Beach Read, Emily Henry wrote a section she called “Reader's Guide: Behind the Book.” In it, she said if she's describing this book to someone who is not a writer she says it's about “a disillusioned romance author and a literary fiction writer who make a deal to swap genres for the summer.” She then says if she's talking to a writer she says it's a book “about writer's block.” I didn't find the writer's block discussions and the pressure from her agent to be particularly interesting. However, the concept of the difficulties with writing the two different genres was fascinating. I believe it is the best part of this book.

The basic storyline of Beach Read is that a woman, January Andrews, who just lost her father discovers that he had a second life with a mistress with whom he shared a house on Lake Michigan. January's father has left the house to her. She goes to this beach house to find a place where she can concentrate on her writing. She is being pressured by her agent to produce a book over the summer and she is having trouble getting started.

January did not know about her father's affair but learns that her mother knew everything. Every time she asks her mother about the affair her mother says, “I don't want to talk about it.” So January is shocked and confused by her father's death, his affair, the way her mother allowed their life to go on without any changes, and how she has now inherited a place she didn't even know existed. Combine all this with the fact that January ends up living next door to Augustus Everett, someone she knew in college, which is, of course, a setup for romance.

The book is a fun read as the two writers get to know each other and rehash their feelings about misunderstandings they had years ago. It's also a serious book about dealing with tragedy and with disappointment in people you love. ( )

This was a very sweet, second chance romance. I like that Henry's plots tend to lightly trip over tropes without diving in all the way. For example, there were a few opportunities for the miscommunication trope to be used, but instead the MCs actually had the conversation - if a few days later. It's a portrayal of healthy relationships that I enjoy and find refreshing in the genre. I also like the lack of true villains; they are just complex people who made mistakes.

And yes, Chapter 25: The Letters made me bawl. ( )
