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.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "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."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Best friends realize their feelings for each other in this dry romance from Lee (The Dating Dare). Los Angeles attorney Elizabeth Chung heads on a three-week vacation to the sleepy town of Weldon to decompress with her childhood friend, Weldon local Jack Park, after a trial leaves her feeling drained. She rents a room attached to a small bookstore, excited to escape into romance novels and reconnect with Jack. But unbeknownst to Lizzy, Jack has loved her since they were kids, and their sudden proximity makes it harder than ever to hide his true feelings. This doesn't matter for long, as soon Lizzy realizes that her own feelings have also deepened into something more. But with their friendship on the line and the long distance between their two homes, they must decide if it's worth risking what they already have for a chance to build something even better. While Lee admirably immerses her audience in Korean American culture, the cookie-cutter characters and lack of any real conflict results in a predictable romance that falls flat. This one misses the mark. Agent: Sarah Younger, Nancy Yost Literary. (July)"
