How to Love Your Neighbor

Sophie Sullivan. Griffin, $16.99 trade paper (352p) ISBN 978-1-250-62418-5
Enemies become lovers while remodeling neighboring beachside cottages in this endearing rom-com from Sullivan (Ten Rules for Faking It). Grace Travis and Noah Jansen meet cute on the beach: he sees a clumsy but attractive woman trying to wrangle a pack of leashed dogs, and she sees a Baywatch-esque paddleboarder who makes her heart beat faster. Then they discover that they’re neighbors. Struggling interior design student Grace just moved into the California beach house her grandparents left her and intends to make a home of the fixer-upper. Wealthy businessman Noah is hoping to flip the house next door in his efforts to get out from his father’s shadow. To achieve his vision for the renovation, he needs Grace’s property—but there’s no way she’ll sell. With neither willing to back down, their feud turns into a war. Readers will be charmed by both characters, whose mutual animosity is partially driven by their equally dysfunctional parents. Luckily, they’re surrounded by friends and family who support them along the way. The result is a refreshing romance with a strong sense of setting and a charismatic cast. Readers will fall in love right alongside Grace and Noah. Agent: Frances Black, Literary Counsel. (Jan.)
