Description
A sparkling romantic comedy about one woman’s decision to tinker with the horoscopes of the man of her dreams—with far-reaching consequences“A bright, brilliant, joyful love story.”—Josie Silver, #1 New York Times bestselling author of One Day in December When childhood sweethearts Justine (Sagittarius and serious skeptic) and Nick (Aquarius and true believer) bump into each other as adults, a life-changing love affair seems inevitable. To Justine, anyway. Especially when she learns Nick is an astrological devotee, whose decisions are guided by the stars, and more specifically, by the horoscopes in his favorite magazine. The same magazine Justine happens to write for. As Nick continues to not fall headlong in love with her, Justine decides to take Nick’s horoscope, and Fate itself, into her own hands. But, of course, Nick is not the only Aquarius making important life choices according to what is written in the stars.   Charting the ripple effects of Justine’s astrological meddling, Star-Crossed is a delicious, intelligent, and affecting love story about friendship, chance, and how we all navigate the kinds of choices that are hard to face alone.Praise for Star-Crossed“Swoon-worthy . . . a smart, sweet love story about friendship, destiny, and the power of choice.”Bustle“[A] juicy romance novel.”Good Housekeeping“Enchanting . . . this book will capture your attention and keep you entertained from the first page to the last.”BuzzFeed “This cleverly structured first outing from the pseudonymous Darke will appeal to fans of romantic comedy, astrology, and chaos. Utterly charming and ripe for development as a film.”Booklist “Winning . . . Unpretentious, well-drawn characters and the fresh twist on the childhood sweethearts reunited setup make this perfect for fans of romantic comedies.”Publishers Weekly “Darke creates a world of stargazers whose destinies eventually collide. . . . Funny and enticing.”―Library Journal
