A Novel Love Story

by Ashley Poston
Adult Fiction – Contemporary – Romance
June 25th, 2024

A professor of literature finds herself caught up in a work of fiction…literally.

Eileen Merriweather knows a thing or two about romance.
As a professor of literature, she teaches prestigious courses on history’s greatest romantics, but one week out of the year she abandons her dusty textbooks and makes a pilgrimage to the Hudson Valley with her best friend Pru to meet their Super Smutty Book Club in person, and celebrate the romance series that brought them together—Quixotic Falls. It’s a week of wine and happily-ever-afters.

Or it’s supposed to be.

Pru bails at the last minute, and Elsy winds up lost in Hudson Valley—alone. In a thunderstorm. When she takes shelter in a bookstore, she immediately gets on the bad side of its grumpy (and infuriatingly sexy) owner, and finds herself in a quaint town that feels like it’s right out of a book…

Because it is.

Eloraton can’t be real, and yet… she’s here. The town is everything she imagined from her favorite series, where the candy store’s honey taffy is always sweet, and the local bar’s burgers are always a little burnt, and rain always comes in the afternoon. It’s perfect. A place built on meet-cutes and storybook endings.

Except, there’s something off in Eloraton. Because nothing changes, nothing moves, trapped in the last place the late author of Quixotic Falls left them. Which must be why Elsy is to find an ending to this last story, the one the author never finished.

The only problem? The bookstore owner never wants the story to end, and he might be the one person who can help her imagine this final happily-ever-after.

And maybe find one for herself.

I’ve been adoring Ashley Poston’s brand of quirky magical contemporary romances already, but now a book where a romance reader finds herself inside her favorite book setting? And falls for the grumpy bookstore owner in said fictional town? I mean, How much more perfect can this sound?

Tell Me:
Will you be reading this book?

  3. I haven’t had the best luck with Poston, but this does sound really adorable and perfect for book lovers!
