A shy bookworm enlists her charming neighbor to help her score a date, not knowing he’s the obscure author she’s been corresponding with, in this sparkling and heart-fluttering romance by Kristina Forest.

Shy, bookish, and admittedly awkward, Lily Greene has always felt inadequate compared to the rest of her accomplished family, who strive for Black excellence. She dreams of becoming a children’s books editor, but she’s been frustratingly stuck in the nonfiction division for years without a promotion in sight. Lily finds escapism in her correspondences with her favorite fantasy author, and what begins as two lonely people connecting over email turns into a tentative friendship and possibly something else Lily won’t let herself entertain—until he ghosts her without a word.
 
Months later, Lily is still crushed, but she’s determined to get a hold of her life, starting with finding a date to her sister’s wedding. And the perfect person to help her is Nick Brown, her charming, attractive new neighbor, who she feels drawn to for reasons she can’t explain. But little does she know, Nick is an author—her favorite fantasy author.
 
Nick, who has his reasons for using a pen name and pushing people away, soon realizes that the beautiful, quiet girl from down the hall is the same Lily he fell in love with over email months ago. Unwilling to complicate things even more between them, he agrees to set her up with someone else, though this simple favor between two neighbors is anything but—not when he can't get her off his mind...

Kristina Forest is the author of romance books for both teens and adults, including I Wanna Be Where You Are, which the New York Times called, "a bighearted story," and Now That I've Found You, a BookRiot Best Book of 2020. Her forthcoming novels include Zyla & Kai and The Neighbor Favor. She earned her MFA in creative writing at The New School, and she can often be found rearranging her bookshelf.

Reviews

"I'm swooning for The Neighbor Favor, and not because I'm stuck on a too-hot subway car: because of the heat between Lily and Nick. You'll swoon too for this joyful story and these bookish lovers as they find their way."—Amanda Elliot, author of Sadie on a Plate

“This literary love story is full of delightful surprises, with resonant characters whose perfectly paced professional struggles underline deeply real questions of family and daring to dream. The Neighbor Favor is the perfect celebration of falling in love on and off the page.”—Emily Wibberley and Austin Siegemund-Broka, authors of The Roughest Draft

“Anchored by two endearing leads and a touching plot filled with a wonderful cast of side characters (including a cat with a penchant for trouble), Kristina Forest’s signature style absolutely shines in this one. The Neighbor Favor is as comforting as it is lovely–an admirable example of everything a heartwarming romance can be.”—Claire Kann, author of The Romantic Agenda

"Warm, witty, and deeply romantic. Kristina Forest is a fantastic storyteller, with an eagle-eye for detail and a knack for crafting lovable characters. It's impossible not to smile while reading this book!"—Rachel Lynn Solomon, New York Times bestselling author of Weather Girl

"Forest expertly balances this perfectly matched duo’s emotional connection with their physical chemistry, making them easy to cheer on. This is a winner."—Publishers Weekly, starred review Expand reviews
