This is the book for 90s rom-com fans. Of which I am. It celebrates the meet-cute. It celebrates Nora Ephron's writings and spirit. It celebrates Tom Hanks' characters in romantic comedies, not necessarily Tom Hanks the person--although he is worth celebrating. I maay have liked the secondary characters more than I liked the main character, Annie. It's a charming, delightful, summer read. Now, excuse me while I binge watch my favorite rom-coms.

From the publisher:
Annie Cassidy dreams of being the next Nora Ephron. She spends her days writing screenplays, rewatching Sleepless in Seattle, and waiting for her movie-perfect meet-cute. If she could just find her own Tom Hanks—a man who’s sweet, sensitive, and possibly owns a houseboat—her problems would disappear and her life would be perfect. But Tom Hanks is nowhere in sight.

When a movie starts filming in her neighborhood and Annie gets a job on set, it seems like a sign. Then Annie meets the lead actor, Drew Danforth, a cocky prankster who couldn’t be less like Tom Hanks if he tried. Their meet-cute is more of a meet-fail, but soon Annie finds herself sharing some classic rom-com moments with Drew. Her Tom Hanks can’t be an actor who’s leaving town in a matter of days . . . can he?
