Harvard Book Store welcomes BETTY CAYOUETTE—author, cinematographer, and creator of the TikTok/Instagram @bettysbooklist, one of the top book recommendation accounts in the world—for a discussion of her debut novel One Last Shot. She will be joined in conversation by JULIA ARGY—Harvard University alumnus and author of The One.

About One Last Shot

From the moment Emerson and Theo met as teenagers, they were inseparable. But just when they finally expressed their feelings to one another, they were torn apart.

Now, supermodel Emerson is nearing her twenty-eighth birthday, and she’s tired of looking for love in all the wrong places. When the calendar reminder for the marriage pact she and Theo made as teens goes off on her phone, she realizes this is it—her chance to rekindle the only romance that ever really made sense. Emerson convinces her grumpy agent to book her as the face of the fashion campaign that Theo, now a fashion photographer, is shooting. The good news: the campaign is being shot in ridiculously romantic Cinque Terre, Italy. The bad news? Theo might not be as happy to see her as she'd hoped.

The two embark on a four-day campaign that tests not only their feelings, but their ability to keep their hands off one another. But as roadblock after roadblock keeps them apart, Emerson starts to wonder: will this photoshoot be the key to getting one last shot at love, or will it be a final goodbye?

Praise for One Last Shot

"A sweet and heartfelt debut romance that has me itching to book a flight to Italy.” —Hannah Grace, author of Icebreaker

"One Last Shot is the ultimate second chance romance. Full of swoon-worthy chemistry and raw emotion, I devoured Emerson and Theo’s love story in a single bite." —Annabel Monaghan, author of Same Time Next Summer

"Deeply romantic, One Last Shot dazzles with second-chance romance so sweeping it’s picture-perfect. A resonant debut and a nuanced portrait of love through the camera lens.” —Emily Wibberley and Austin Siegemund-Broka, authors of The Roughest Draft
