What’s it about? What’s the plot of Beach Read?

Beach Read, released in May 2020, is a beachy summer romance set at a lake house in Michigan.

In Beach Read, January Adams is a plucky chick lit writer who moves into a lake house to try to eke out a novel she owes to her publisher. But with her happily-ever-after worldview in question — she recently found out her parent’s happy marriage was a lie and was dumped by a boyfriend who didn’t want to deal with the resulting emotional turmoil — she’s having a hard time writing about romance.

At the lake house, she finds out her neighbor is the handsome but grumpy Augustus “Gus” Everett, a novelist and former college acquaintance slash rival slash crush, who is working on his next book as well.

As they reacquaint themselves, they come up with a bet. January will try to write a serious work of literary fiction, while Gus will attempt to write something happy for once. It’s a plan formulated to get January’s creativity flowing again, with perhaps a bit of romance on the side…
