On today’s episode, host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Robin Whitten discuss Beach Read by Emily Henry, which highlights a lot of Julia’s skill with sassy first-person narration. This is a lovely get-away romance that takes place at a little lakeside town in Michigan. The story centers on two writers, January and Gus, who are stuck with writer’s block and bet one another that they can write and sell a book in the other’s genre—rom-com and literary fiction. The witty banter, vulnerability, and chemistry between January and Gus come alive in Julia’s narration.
