Why a Booktrail?

2000s: He doesn’t believe in happy endings. She’s lost her faith that they exist. But could they find one together?

  • ISBN: B0817FNSZ9
  • Genre: Romance

What you need to know before your trail

January is a hopeless romantic who narrates her life like she’s the lead in a blockbuster movie. Gus is a serious literary type who thinks true love is a fairy-tale.

But January and Gus have more in common than you’d think:

They’re both broke. They’ve got crippling writer’s block. And they need to write bestsellers before summer ends.

The result? A bet to swap genres see who gets published first. The risk? In telling each other’s stories, their worlds might be changed entirely…



Travel Guide

Stay a while in Lake Michigan BookTrail style

Well, the  book is set in North Bear Shores which is fictional but it’s on the banks of the famous lake! Two writers head to the beach for rest and relaxation. Time to write their next novels. Well, you would think they would each have enough space and fresh air here!However, one of them has only moved there to get away from life back at home. Things have gone from bad to worse so this beach house retreat is just what she needs…isn’t it?

She’s at the local bookstore when she finds out that her college rival and enemy Gus Everett, also an author is staying next door! Not ideal at all, but the bookshop definitely is and you will fall in love with this one!

“I did what any reasonable adult woman would do when confronted with her college rival turned next-door neighbor. I dove behind the nearest bookshelf.”

Sunny days beside Lake Michigan with a bookshop to visit and two writers in a battle of wills…yes please!
