Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"Jayci Lee's romcom Booked on a Feeling features an overachieving lawyer. A failing bookstore. A childhood friend. And the chance of a lifetime... Lizzy "Overachiever" Chung, Esq. has her life mapped out neatly: * Become a lawyer. Check. * Join a prestigious law firm. Check. * Make partner. In progress. If all goes to plan, she will check off that last box in a couple years, make her parents proud, and live a successful, fulfilled life in L.A. What was not in her plans was passing out from a panic attack during a pivotal moment in her career. A few deep breaths and a four hour drive later, Lizzy is in Weldon for three weeks to shed the burnout and figure out what went wrong. And what better place to recharge than the small California town where she spent her childhood summers with her best friend, Jack Park. Jack Park didn't expect to see Lizzy back in Weldon, but now he's got three weeks to spend with the girl of his dreams. Except she doesn't know of his decades-long crush on her--and he intends to keep it that way. She's a high-powered attorney who lives in L.A. and he's a bookkeeper at his family's brewery who never left his hometown. He can't risk their friendship on a long shot. Can he? When Lizzy decides that the local bookstore needs a little revamp, of course, Jack is going to help her bring it back to life. But the more time they spend together, the harder it becomes to ignore there might be more than just friendship among the dusty shelves and books... Sometimes the path to the rest of your life has been in front of you all along"-- Provided by publisher.

    Korean American Lee delivers another fluffy rom-com, following The Dating Dare (2021), one that, unfortunately, presents a shallow depiction of anxiety disorders. Overachiever Lizzy Chung is very close to making partner at her downtown L.A. law firm, but panic attacks are preventing her from reveling in the rewards of her hard work. As the bookkeeper for his family's business, Jack Park could not be more proud of his childhood best friend, whom he's been crushing on secretly for decades, but hasn't pursued because he's stuck in the "friend zone." After collapsing in court, Lizzy decides to take a three-week leave of absence to visit Jack in Weldon, California, giving Jack a chance to turn their friendship into love. She rents a room attached to a musty old bookstore that she breathes new life into while reassessing what makes her happy. Lee's novel shines brightest when she's describing the sights, smells, and flavors of Korean culture and cuisine; if only she injected that same descriptive zest into her characters and their predicaments. Fans will want this for sure. Copyright 2022 Booklist Reviews.

Author Notes

JAYCI LEE writes poignant, sexy, and laugh-out-loud romance every free second she can scavenge and is semi-retired from her fifteen-year career as a defense litigator. She loves food, wine, and travelling and incidentally, so do her characters in books like The Dating Dare and A Sweet Mess. Jayci lives in sunny California with her tall-dark-and-handsome husband, two amazing boys with boundless energy, and a fluffy rescue whose cuteness is a major distraction.
