500 Miles from You

Jenny Colgan. Morrow, $16.99 trade paper (432p) ISBN 978-0-06-291124-7
Strangers trade lives in this endearing romance from Colgan (The Bookshop on the Shore), which will remind rom-com aficionados of the film The Holiday. London nurse Lissa Westcott witnesses a teenage boy getting run over by a car and is part of the failed effort to save his life. After the tragedy, she suffers from PTSD, leading her superiors to arrange for her to swap jobs with a nurse in the quiet town of Kirrinfief, Scotland, as a break from stressful London life. Meanwhile, nurse Cormac MacPherson travels from Kirrinfief to cover Lissa’s patients in London. As both adjust to the charms and quirks of life in a small town and big city, they exchange notes on patients via email. Soon their correspondence becomes more personal than professional as they forge a powerful bond. Their long-distance relationship is sweet but slow as the medical drama and contrasting settings take center stage, but their eventual face-to-face meeting is worth the wait. This cute, cozy story will draw readers in. Agent: Deborah Schneider, ICM. (June)
