In this warm and witty romance from acclaimed author Kate Clayborn, one little word puts one woman’s business—and her heart—in jeopardy…
Meg Mackworth’s hand-lettering skill has made her famous as the Planner of Park Slope, designing beautiful custom journals for New York City’s elite. She has another skill too: reading signs that other people miss. Like the time she sat across from Reid Sutherland and his gorgeous fiancée, and knew their upcoming marriage was doomed to fail. Weaving a secret word into their wedding program was a little unprofessional, but she was sure no one else would spot it. She hadn’t counted on sharp-eyed, pattern-obsessed Reid…
A year later, Reid has tracked Meg down to find out—before he leaves New York for good—how she knew that his meticulously planned future was about to implode. But with a looming deadline, a fractured friendship, and a bad case of creative block, Meg doesn’t have time for Reid’s questions—unless he can help her find her missing inspiration. As they gradually open up to each other about their lives, work, and regrets, both try to ignore the fact that their unlikely connection is growing deeper. But the signs are there—irresistible, indisputable, urging Meg to heed the messages Reid is sending her, before it’s too late…
My first read of the year is DONE and what an amazing way to start the new year! Although the aftermath of the last few chapters of Love Lettering still has me feeling like an emotional, puffy, red-eyed potato, I’m beyond happy I decided to pick this book as my first read of 2020.
Kate Clayborn made me fall in love with her writing style from the very beginning. The way she describes things, specially New York City, is breathtaking and unlike anything I’ve read before. I was in love with NYC before reading this book but now, holy crap, I want to jump on the first plane and go experience it for the first time.
I found the story itself to be incredibly original and perfectly paced. It kept me wondering how the story would end and I can tell you right now, you will NEVER in a million years guess that ending. It’s surprising to say the least.
And I don’t even want to get started on the characters because I’ll star crying again, that’s how much I love them. Just know they are perfectly imperfect.
If you, like myself, are a fan of unique stories, long and beautiful love letters, silent heroes with hearts of gold and adorably witty heroines then GO READ THIS BOOK.
Massive thanks to Kensington Books for sending me a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
