He doesn't believe in happy endings. She's lost her faith that they exist. But could they find one together? January is a hopeless romantic who likes narrating her life as if she's the heroine in a blockbuster movie. Augustus is a serious literary type who thinks true love is a fairy-tale. January and Augustus are not going to get on. But they actually have more in common than you'd think- They're both broke. They've got crippling writer's block. They need to write bestsellers before the end of the summer. The result? A bet to see who can get their book published first. The catch? They have to swap genres. The risk? In telling each other's stories, their worlds might be changed entirely . . .

Never quite figured out why this novel was called ‘Beach Read’, because for me, it wasn’t a beach read, and it seemed to have to have nothing to do with beaches..

That said, I enjoyed reading it.

The heroine was called January. She thought it had a meaning for her parents, just as they told her about ‘her’ song – the one that was number one in the hit parade when she was born did. Only not so much.

And then here was her father – and his lake house and his mistress.

 A complicated story with high emotions at times and good writing style and believable characters.
