The highly anticipated new thriller in Caroline Kepnesâ€™s hit You series, now a blockbuster Netflix showâ€”a compulsively readable trip into the deviant mind of the uniquely antisocial, savvy bookseller . . . Joe Goldberg.
â€śFiendish, fast-paced, and very funny.â€ťâ€”Paula Hawkins, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Girl on the Train
ONE OF THE MOST ANTICIPATED BOOKS OF THE YEARâ€”Cosmopolitan, PopSugar, Literary Hub
Joe is done with the cities. Heâ€™s done with the muck and the posers, done with Love. Now, heâ€™s saying hello to nature, to simple pleasures on a cozy island in the Pacific Northwest. For the first time in a long time, he can just breathe.
He gets a job at the local libraryâ€”he does know a thing or two about booksâ€”and thatâ€™s where he meets her: Mary Kay DiMarco. Librarian. Joe wonâ€™t meddle, he will not obsess. Heâ€™ll win her the old-fashioned way . . . by providing a shoulder to cry on, a helping hand. Over time, theyâ€™ll both heal their wounds and begin their happily ever after in this sleepy town.
The trouble is . . . Mary Kay already has a life. Sheâ€™s a mother. Sheâ€™s a friend. Sheâ€™s . . . busy.
True love can only triumph if both people are willing to make room for the real thing. Joe cleared his decks. Heâ€™s ready. And hopefully, with his encouragement and undying support, Mary Kay will do the right thing and make room for him.
