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 . . .
Love Lettering is a sweet romance that tells the story of two unlikely people forming a bond that is unique and beautiful. This was my first time reading a Kate Clayborn novel and I really enjoyed it.
The story follows Meg who is working with some of the most elite people in New York because of her hand-lettering skills. She is working with a couple and admits that she doesn’t think they will last long. A few months later, Reid (the same man that she thought wouldn’t last in that marriage) visits her to see how she knew that he wasn’t supposed to marry his then-fiance.
Kate Clayborn writes with wit and humor which was my favorite part of the story.
I give Love Lettering 3 stars. I felt like the characters were great but the overall story lacked a bit to show their journey. At times the friendship/relationship felt forced. I really wanted to like this more because it had the potential to be fantastic.
