She's going to write her own happy ending. English professor Athena Murphy is an authority on the novels of the Brontë sisters. But as they say in academia, publish or perish. To save her job, Athena decides to write a biography of C.L. Garland, the author heating up bestseller lists with spicy retellings of classic literature. Tracking down the reclusive writer and uncovering her secret identity, though, means Athena must return to her small midwestern hometown where Garland--and her ex-boyfriend, Thorne Kent--live. Seeing Thorne again reminds Athena that real life never lives up to fiction. He was the Heathcliff to her Catherine, the Mr. Rochester to her Jane. Not only did their college breakup shatter that illusion, but they also broke each other's hearts again a second time. Now she has to see him nearly every...single...day. The only solution is to find C.L. Garland as quickly as possible, write the book, and get the heck out of town. As her deadline looms and the list of potential C.L. Garlands dwindles, Athena and Thorne bicker and banter their way back to friendship. Could it really be true that the third time's a charm? Athena and Thorne have a love story only a Brontë could write, and the chance for their own happily-ever-after, but first, they'll need to forgive the mistakes of the past.… (més)

I received a copy of this book for free from Books Forward for promotional purposes.

I was very excited to read this book because I love the premise (I love books about books/literature and I love the Brontes). Unfortunately, it did not live up to my expectations.

My main critique is that the book is too long. The book is roughly 370 pages (not including title pages, acknowledgments, etc.), but could have been whittled down to around 300. The book is very light on events that drive the plot forward. After the main character, Athena, moves back to her hometown to work on her book, not much really happens until the end. As for the romance aspect, there weren’t many fun rom-com moments to keep the book interesting.

The mystery surrounding the identity of C.L. Garland (the subject of her book) was also not very exciting. I was expecting there to be a lot of crazy hijinks from Athena while she tries to uncover the truth, but those moments were also very limited.

I did like some things about the book. I liked the small town vibes, especially with Athena working at the cafe. It felt very cozy. The townspeople made great supporting characters and added some humor to the story. I also enjoyed the literary references made throughout the book and the Bronte quotes that headlined every chapter.

Overall, the book didn’t work for me. However, it might work for you if you want a second chance romance with some literary references and cozy vibes. ( )

This was certainly a light and easy to read book. Athena is a college professor and she has reached the point in her career where she needs to publish a book. She decides that her best course of action is to write a book outing the mysterious author of sexy mash up books of regency authors.

This author just happens to live in her old home town. So does her lost love. He runs a diner where Athena ends up getting a job so she can grill the local townspeople about the mysterious author. While in town she also deals with family issues and her love life.

I wanted to like this book. It was an easy, breezy book to read. The problem was the premise. It was tissue paper thin and it blew apart about a third of the way into the book. The characters are certainly likeable but I just couldn’t find the idea of Athena writing this book to save her career plausible. ( )
