I’m taking part in the cover reveal today for a book described as a ‘captivating, must-read for Autumn 2023’. Thank You For Sharing, the debut novel from Rachel Runya Katz, is due out in September and I think it sounds really interesting, romantic fiction with a bit of a twist. Here’s what the book is about:
She’s hated him since they were teenagers.
He’s missed her just as long.
The last time Daniel Rosenberg and Liyah Cohen-Jackson spoke to each other was as teenagers, sharing a first kiss. But when the path of young love didn’t run smooth, and Liyah found her heart bruised by Daniel, they parted ways for ever… until they are seated together on an aeroplane fourteen years later, butting heads just as badly but consoling themselves that at least they will never have to see each other again.
That is, until Daniel’s marketing firm gets hired by the museum where Liyah works as a junior curator, and they’re forced to work together on a project that will change both of their careers.
With every meeting, the tension (and chemistry) between Daniel and Liyah builds until they’re forced to confront the baggage from their childhood to work together.
Despite themselves, their friendship blooms once again, each of them finding comfort in their shared experience as Jews of colour. And as they try and fail to ignore their growing feelings for one another, Liyah must face the fears that she’s been running from her whole adult life and open her heart to love.
This sizzling, utterly romantic and emotional read will sweep you away in a captivating must-read for autumn 2023. Fans of Mhairi Macfarlane, Emily Henry and Talia Hibbert will love this incredible debut.
Sounds good doesn’t it? And now for the cover!
