Love Lettering by Kate Clayborn

In this warm and witty romance from acclaimed author Kate Clayborn, one little word puts a 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 custom journals for her New York City clientele. She has another skill too: reading signs that other people miss. Knowing the upcoming marriage of Reid Sutherland and his polished fiancée was doomed to fail is one thing, but weaving a secret word of warning into their wedding program is another. Meg may have thought no one would spot it, but she hadn’t counted on sharp-eyed, pattern-obsessed Reid.

A year later, Reid has tracked Meg down to find out how she knew that his meticulously planned future was about to implode. But with a looming deadline 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, both try to ignore a deepening connection between them. But the signs are there—irresistible, indisputable, urging Meg to heed the messages Reid is sending her, before it’s too late…

My Book Beginning:

On Sunday I work in sans serif.

Boldface for all the headers, because that’s what the client wants, apexes and vertexes flattened way out into big floors and tables for every letter, each one stretching and counting and demanding to be seen.

My Snippit from Page 56:

It soothes me to wait by this particular piece of art, since in general Midtown has never been my speed–even when it’s blocks away from Times Square is still a shouty, ocular migraine-inducing shadow, too many honking horns and flashing lights and tourists doing incomprehensible things like actually enjoying themselves in this madness.

1. I could not live without books.

2. A simple pleasure I enjoy is a hot bath.

3. If I could change one thing about myself, it would be my housekeeping skills. I need a maid!

4. Empathy and compassion is hard to find these days.

  1. Your Friday book looks great. I’ve been seeing it around and will add it to my TBR. Great fill ins – I’m the same way with #3. I’m not very good at it. LOL

  2. How i wish there were empathy pills, or something. It’s sad to see how lack of sympathy, empathy, and compassion is taking away so much from our lives.

    Thanks for the visit, and i hope you are having a great weekend!

  3. This book sounds so sweet. I also find its cover very charming. And thank you for joining in on the Friendly Fill-Ins! I completely agree on the need for books in life. I also completely relate to the need for a maid. A clean and tidy environment is what helps me feel calm and productive, but sometimes life gets in the way of keeping my house as tidy as I’d like it. A maid would be wonderful. Have a lovely week!
