‘Smart, fresh and romantic . . . I loved this book with my whole heart’ BETH O’LEARY

‘Absolutely irresistible – funny, addictive and deliciously romantic’ ROSIE WALSH


Nora’s life is about to get a rewrite . . .

Nora Hamilton knows the formula for love better than anyone. As a romance channel screenwriter, it’s her job. But when her husband leaves her and their two kids, Nora turns the collapse of her marriage into the best script of her life. When it’s picked up for the big screen and set to film on location at her picturesque Hudson Valley home, Nora’s life will never be the same – especially after world-famous Hollywood actor and former ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ Leo Vance is cast as her ex-husband.

The morning after the crew leaves, Nora finds Leo on her porch with a half-empty bottle of tequila and a proposition. He’ll pay a thousand dollars a day to stay for an extra week. Seven days: it’s the blink of an eye or an eternity, depending on how you look at it. It’s enough time to fall in love. Enough time to break your heart . . .

Filled with warmth, wit, and wisdom, Nora Goes Off Script is the best kind of love story – the real kind where love is complicated by work, kids, and the emotional baggage that comes with life.

For Nora and Leo, this kind of love is bigger than the big screen.

Funny and good-hearted - a romance for romantics, a blending of the real and the deliciously unreal
Linda Holmes
This perfectly-scripted love story left me feeling the way all the best romances do: filled with hope and the feeling that true love always wins
Jill Santopolo
I love Nora. I love her voice. I love the romance. I love the pacing. I love that she's a mum. I love it all . . . It's got the vibes of Beach Read by Emily Henry, with the escapist glamour of Hollywood. Absolutely nails the comedy, the romance, and the sparkle. My favourite read of this year, and soon to be yours!

I really liked this book, with Annabel Monaghan managing to bring that feature film feeling to the page . . . the perfect book for those looking for a second chance at love and even those who just love to get swept up in a story
Wryly observed escapism - romantic but never mawkish
Mail on Sunday
For fans of Book Lovers by Emily Henry . . . highlights single motherhood and the ways in which children can both complicate new romance and make it even more heartwarming. It's the feel-good book you didn't realize you needed
