商品簡介

FROM THE #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF PEOPLE WE MEET ON VACATION AND BOOK LOVERS!

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.


  專寫愛情爛漫,天真美好的羅曼小說家,遇上純文學的作家。兩位風格迥異的作家從陌生人到朋友,最後走向愛情,都源至一場夏日挑戰賽。


  珍妮艾利(January Andrews)是位羅曼史作家,總是相信真愛與美滿結局。直到她父親過世,她繼承一間海邊度假小屋,同時發現了父親多年來的婚外情。這些秘密衝擊珍妮艾利的三觀,在這樣的矛盾下,她再也寫不出東西。直到她遇見海邊小屋旁的鄰居,奧古斯特(Augustus Everett)。

  奧古斯特正遭逢創作生涯的低潮,寫作面臨瓶頸。一場意外的閒聊,讓他們決定在這個夏天交換工作,換奧古斯特寫一本令人開心的羅曼史、由珍妮艾利創作下一本美國文學巨作。

  於是今年夏天,珍妮艾利必須帶著奧古斯特去海邊看夕陽、尋找羅曼史靈感,而奧古斯特必須和珍妮艾利一起去作訪問、蒐集資料。一切只是為了創作,絕對不會有人愛上對方的…對吧?

Book Lovers

"One of my favorite authors."--Colleen Hoover

An insightful, delightful, instant #1 New York Times bestseller from the author of Beach Read and People We Meet on Vacation.

Named a Most Anticipated Book of 2022 by Oprah Daily ∙ Today ∙ ParadeMarie Claire ∙ Bustle ∙ PopSugar ∙ Katie Couric Media ∙ Book Bub ∙ SheReads ∙ Medium ∙ The Washington Post ∙ and more!

One summer. Two rivals. A plot twist they didn’t see coming...

Nora Stephens' life is books--she's read them all--and she is not that type of heroine. Not the plucky one, not the laidback dream girl, and especially not the sweetheart. In fact, the only people Nora is a heroine for are her clients, for whom she lands enormous deals as a cutthroat literary agent, and her beloved little sister Libby.

Which is why she agrees to go to Sunshine Falls, North Carolina for the month of August when Libby begs her for a sisters' trip away--with visions of a small town transformation for Nora, who she's convinced needs to become the heroine in her own story. But instead of picnics in meadows, or run-ins with a handsome country doctor or bulging-forearmed bartender, Nora keeps bumping into Charlie Lastra, a bookish brooding editor from back in the city. It would be a meet-cute if not for the fact that they've met many times and it's never been cute.

If Nora knows she's not an ideal heroine, Charlie knows he's nobody's hero, but as they are thrown together again and again--in a series of coincidences no editor worth their salt would allow--what they discover might just unravel the carefully crafted stories they've written about themselves.

People We Meet on Vacation

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Book Lovers and Beach Read comes a sparkling novel that will leave you with the warm, hazy afterglow usually reserved for the best vacations.

Two best friends. Ten summer trips. One last chance to fall in love.

Poppy and Alex. Alex and Poppy. They have nothing in common. She's a wild child; he wears khakis. She has insatiable wanderlust; he prefers to stay home with a book. And somehow, ever since a fateful car share home from college many years ago, they are the very best of friends. For most of the year they live far apart--she's in New York City, and he's in their small hometown--but every summer, for a decade, they have taken one glorious week of vacation together.

Until two years ago, when they ruined everything. They haven't spoken since.

Poppy has everything she should want, but she's stuck in a rut. When someone asks when she was last truly happy, she knows, without a doubt, it was on that ill-fated, final trip with Alex. And so, she decides to convince her best friend to take one more vacation together--lay everything on the table, make it all right. Miraculously, he agrees.

Now she has a week to fix everything. If only she can get around the one big truth that has always stood quietly in the middle of their seemingly perfect relationship. What could possibly go wrong?

中文內容簡介

 

  兩位「好朋友」,10趟夏日旅程,最後一次面對彼此真正感受的機會⋯
  就如《當哈利遇上莎莉》般,帶你進入一段溫馨的愛情之旅
 
  Poppy跟Alex兩個人,說真的,從裡到外找不出任何共通點。一個總是喜歡把自己打扮得花花綠綠,一個全年就是101件的卡其褲加T恤穿搭;一個老愛在外頭趴趴走,一個寧願宅在家裡靜靜看完一本書。但偏偏就是這樣的兩個人,在一趟從大學回俄亥俄州的共乘後,意外地變成彼此最好的朋友,還立下了每年夏日都一定要空出時間來旅行的約定。儘管出社會後,Poppy跑到了紐約當旅遊類的網紅寫手,而Alex留在俄亥俄當平凡的高中老師,十年來,每個夏日之旅都絕對不會落下,直到那次的爭吵⋯
 
  兩年過去,兩個人完全斷絕聯繫,Poppy開始對於眼前這個所謂「人生勝利組」的人生提不起任何興趣。有人問了她一個直擊心靈深處的問題:「你最近一次感受到真正快樂,是什麼時候?」
 
  她一直都知道答案是什麼。拿起手機,再次聯繫Alex。這次不能再讓這位「最好的朋友」淡出自己的人生了,必須好好正視橫擺在兩人關係中間的那個「事實」,絕對不能出錯⋯
