Morgan Rogers‘ #ownvoices, coming-of-age debut is a fresh spin on an endearing trope. In Honey Girl [Feb. 23, Park Row] meet Grace Porter, a no-nonsense young woman who celebrates the completion of her Ph.D … with a drunken wedding in Vegas, followed by a summer away in NYC throwing caution to the wind with the beautiful, creative wife she barely knows. The love for the book is through the roof, with Oprah Mag calling the book “a soul-stirring rom-com in reverse.”

I’m telling everyone I know about it, especially librarians. It’s a true gem, and stands out even amidst what has been a truly excellent year for romance novels…. Can’t believe it’s a debut.“
