For the book lovers among us is THE NEIGHBOR FAVOR (Trade Paperback Original; February 28, 2023), a heart-fluttering romance starring a Black hero and heroine. Bookish and admittedly awkward Lily has always wanted to be a children’s book editor, but she feels stuck at her job in the nonfiction division with no change in sight. She finds escapism in her correspondence with her favorite fantasy author, until he ghosts her without a word. Months later, she’s trying to move on, starting with finding a date to her sister’s wedding. And the perfect person to help her is Nick, her attractive new neighbor… who just happens to be her favorite fantasy author.
Kristina Forest is a beloved YA author making her adult fiction debut with this book. THE NEIGHBOR FAVOR brings together Black representation, the girl-next-door trope, friends-to-lovers, and the book publishing world to warm the hearts of readers everywhere.
