From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of I Owe You One, an utterly delightful novel about a woman who ditches her dating app for a writer’s retreat in Italy—only to find that real love comes with its own filters.

Ava thinks love should be found in the real world. She believes in feelings, not algorithms. Following a breakup, she puts love on hold and escapes to a remote writers' retreat in coastal Italy. At the retreat, no one uses real names or any personal information. When they're joined by a few members of the canceled martial arts retreat next door, Ava--now "Aria"--meets a man who seems too good to be true.

So what if his name isn't really Dutch? The two embark on a baggage-free, whirlwind love affair, and things seem to be perfect. But then their real identities—Ava and Matt—must return to London. There they discover just how different their personal worlds are. As one mishap follows another, it seems while they love each other, they just can’t love each other’s lives. Can they reconcile their differences to find one life together?

Sophie Kinsella is the author of the bestselling Shopaholic series, as well as the novels Can You Keep a Secret?, The Undomestic Goddess, Remember Me?, Twenties Girl, I've Got Your Number, Wedding Night, My Not So Perfect Life, Surprise Me, and I Owe You One. She lives in London.

Elin Hilderbrand spent her first summer on Nantucket Island in 1993 and has lived there year-round for 26 years. She’s the mother of three, an enthusiastic at-home cook, a six-year breast cancer survivor, and the author of 26 novels including Summer of ’6928 Summers and Troubles In Paradise.

28 Summers is her 25th novel. It explores the agony and romance of a one-weekend-per-year affair and the dramatic ways this relationship complicates and enriches their lives, and the lives of the people they love.
