Review of By the Book


This was a loose retelling of Beauty and the Beast and I think it worked really well. Izzy is an overworked editorial assistant tasked with getting celebrity Beau Towers to reluctantly write his memoir. I really liked both characters and their chemistry was great. I enjoyed how we slowly got to learn more about Beau’s life and why he is hesitant about writing his book. It was also fun to get a look at what an editor does. This was definitely an entertaining romcom from this prolific and exceptional author.
