Sunny Review for BEACH READ by Emily Henry

Beach Read by Emily Henry

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.

Christy's Thoughts

Romance, drama, family secrets, and quick-witted dialogue makes Beach Read by Emily Henry a must read for any location.

The concept of two novelists having writer’s block and deciding to switch genres on a bet is unique and clever. When they share their genre specific writing processes with each other, that leads to time spent together, which leads to romance.

I adored January and Gus. They were flawed, complex characters with compelling backstories. As writers they are blocked creatively, but they are also blocked emotionally. The process of moving past these challenges will endear January and Gus to readers.

The dialogue is vibrant, just like you’d expect from two writers who have a shared history. It was a delight to read.
