Waiting for Tom Hanks

Publication Date: 

#OMPReads is beloved by both Amanda and Anna - WAITING FOR TOM HANKS by Kerry Winfrey! "IT'S SO CUTE I'M GONNA DIE.
Guys. If you love the pilot of The Mindy Project (Mindy drunk on a bicycle bellowing "I'M SANDRA BULLOCK!" after her ex's wedding, young Mindy obsessing over romcoms)-- this is a whole book of that. I adored it, top to toe. Also, Drew is an excellent love interest and I can't WAIT FOR THE COMPANION ABOUT ANNIE'S BFF CHLOE."

A rom-com-obsessed romantic waiting for her perfect leading man learns that life doesn’t always go according to a script in this delightfully charming and funny novel.

Annie Cassidy dreams of being the next Nora Ephron. She spends her days writing screenplays, rewatching Sleepless in Seattle, and waiting for her movie-perfect meet-cute. If she could just find her own Tom Hanks—a man who’s sweet, sensitive, and possibly owns a houseboat—her problems would disappear and her life would be perfect. But Tom Hanks is nowhere in sight.

When a movie starts filming in her neighborhood and Annie gets a job on set, it seems like a sign. Then Annie meets the lead actor, Drew Danforth, a cocky prankster who couldn’t be less like Tom Hanks if he tried. Their meet-cute is more of a meet-fail, but soon Annie finds herself sharing some classic rom-com moments with Drew. Her Tom Hanks can’t be an actor who’s leaving town in a matter of days...can he?
