Meg Cabot, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Princess Diaries, returns to Little Bridge Island with a new story about an author with a case of writer’s block and an arrogant novelist who have to set aside their differences as they get through a weekend long book festival that just might change everything – including their feelings for each other.
Welcome to Little Bridge, one of the most beautiful islands in the Florida Keys, home to sandy white beaches, salt-rimmed margaritas and sizzling romance . . .
Jo Wright always swore she’d never step foot on Little Bridge Island – not as long as her nemesis, bestselling author Will Price, is living there. Then Jo’s given an offer she can’t refuse: an all-expenses paid trip to speak and sign at the island’s first ever book festival. And when she finds out Will won’t even be on the island, there’s no reason to refuse.
But when she arrives on Little Bridge, Jo is in for a shock: Will is not only at the book festival, but seems genuinely sorry for his past actions – and more than willing not only to make amends, but prove to Jo that he’s a changed man.
Things seem to be looking up – until disaster strikes, causing Jo to wonder: do any of us ever really know anyone?
Will their prayers be answered at the most wonderful time of the year?

Hey guys, you might know me already from one of my social media channels where I talk about the highs and lows of living with Tourette’s Syndrome. I’ve loved sharing those times with you and – as there are lots of things I can’t fit into a 60 second video – I’ve decided to write a book! It’s the full story of how I came to be diagnosed and how having Tourette’s has changed my life. Writing it has given me an opportunity to talk about things I haven’t felt ready to share before – for some reason it’s easier to put down private things in written words than in a video!
I talk about the many other illnesses I’ve been through and the dreams that it’s affected – about my school days, relationships and my very lowest points – but I also talk about what I’ve managed to achieve in spite of all the obstacles. I hope it’ll make you laugh and make you think, and empower you to realise that no matter what you’re facing in life, there are always ways to deal with the challenges.
It’s also so important to me that people understand what life is like with a disability, so we can be compassionate towards each other. I’ve bared my soul in this book to hopefully help others to do this. I’m so excited (and just a little bit nervous) for you to read it!
