I received this book from SheSpeaks and Kensington. I am voluntarily sharing my honest review.
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…
I enjoyed this book! I think part of my enjoyment stems from the fact that Meg felt like a relatable character to me. She is from the Columbus, Ohio area – I live close to this area as well. It helped me to understand some of her quirks as well as her mannerisms and way of speaking. The book had several quote-worthy parts that had me laughing out loud. It was light and fun. The hand-lettering aspect gave unique elements to the story.
I think Reid and Meg make a great couple. Toward the end of the book, the story felt like it just jumped the rails and everything was happening too quickly, then somewhat pulled together by the epilogue. If the timeline had been a bit more cohesive and the actions taken by some of the characters felt a bit more realistic, this would have been a five-star read for me.
If you can suspend belief for a bit and just enjoy this for a fun, light-hearted read, I think you will enjoy it as well. Side note: I kept picturing Reid as Dr. Spencer Reid from Criminal Minds. LOL.
