Publisher's Summary

Evvie Drake Starts Over meets Beach Read in this heartwarming and hilarious novel about a divorced romance channel screenwriter whose script about her marriage’s collapse just might help her reclaim her life and find love.

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 too-good-to-work husband leaves her and their two kids, Nora turns her marriage’s collapse into cash and writes the best script of her life. No one is more surprised than her when it’s picked up for the big screen and set to film on location at her 100-year-old home. When former Sexiest Man Alive, Leo Vance, is cast as her ne’er-do-well husband, Nora’s life will never be the same.

The morning after shooting wraps and 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 a week. The extra seven grand would give Nora breathing room, but it’s the need in his eyes that makes her say yes. Seven days: It’s the blink of an eye or an eternity depending on how you look at it. 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.

This is a perfect romantic comedy. I enjoyed every second. Many complain easy reads can be predictable. This one had a twist I didn’t see coming. This book is a fun, uplifting, relatable read! Loved it!

This book really was DELIGHTFUL!

In the words of a fantastic influencer on FB who is called Melissa and has four boys - “Your happy brain cells, your mental health, and your in person friendships will thank you.
On that note, this was absolutely DELIGHTFUL. Check it out!”

It really was, and the narrator was fantastic too. I love it when a recommendation lives up to its expectations.

Enjoyable but forgettable

This was cute, but I probably won't remember the characters next week. I didn't love the narrator. She was monotoned and her voice sounded bored.
