Review by Booklist Reviews

Kate follows her lush and suspenseful historical tale, The Orphan's Song (2019), with a charming, witty tale set in the publishing world. New Yorker Lanie Bloom is the newly minted editorial director at Peony Press. For years, she's had a warm virtual relationship with Peony's star author, Noa Callaway, whose books have sold millions of copies. Discovering that Noa is actually Noah Ross feels like a gross betrayal of their relationship. Noah is suffering from writer's block and has missed the deadline for his latest book by months. Passionate about her city, Lanie comes up with a list of 50 of its hidden treasures and urges Noah to explore them with her with the hope of clearing whatever is holding him back. As they spend time together, Lanie realizes that her fiancé, who wants her to give up her career and change her ways, really should become her ex, and that she is falling in love with Noah, who thinks she is wonderful at everything. Among this love story's many charms is one of the most romantic proposals in the rom-com genre. Copyright 2022 Booklist Reviews.

Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

Kate (The Orphan's Song) delivers a delightful rom-com that begs to be devoured in one sitting. Lanie Bloom comes from a family of doctors and always intended to follow in their footsteps—until she fell in love with romance novels in college. Lanie ditched pre-med to pursue a career in New York City publishing, eventually becoming the editor of one of romance's biggest names, Noa Callaway. Though she's never met the mysterious author in person, they've worked together via email for years, and Lanie's always been a fan, even creating a list of aspirational qualities for her perfect partner based on one of Noa's first books. When Noa admits to writer's block, Lanie's job rides on getting the next bestseller produced, and she'll stop at nothing to generate inspiration—leading to their first IRL meeting and a reveal that shakes Lanie to her core. Most readers won't be surprised to discover the reason Noa is so reclusive, but this doesn't take away from enjoying the slow burning central relationship. Kate surrounds both Noa and Lanie with well-drawn friends and family who add welcome backstory and create a sense that these are two people with full lives outside of each other meeting in the middle. The result is both smart and adorable. Agent: Laura Rennert, Andrea Brown Literary. (Mar.) Copyright 2022 Publishers Weekly.
