Descripción

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 gorgeous 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 . . .

Contains mature themes.

    Really cute story. I enjoyed listening to this book while working out and it really made time pass quickly

    This charming contemporary romance follows Meg and Reid who meet under unique circumstances and then meet again a year later under even more unique circumstances. They are very different but find that they complement each other well. I liked both main characters, and Clayborn does a wonderful job of portraying the other main character - New York City. Meg and Reid (and the city) feel very real - they have foibles and issues, but nothing too extreme or exagerrated. Their relationship is lovely and co-equal and the Big Problem that threatens to derail them (though of course it doesn't), while kind of silly, doesn't overwhelm the plot or lead to too much angst and drama.4 stars"{E}ven when it's blocks away, 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 the madness."

    Such a cute romance read! I love the creativity of Meg being a designer, specializing in hand lettering journals, wedding invites and signs. It's a job that I never thought about before and so I found it very interesting. Especially, the fact that she hides messages in her work. When Reid, a groom that she designed invites for, spots her message, what happens next is what you have to find out! 2 different kinds of people discover signs, both literal and figurative through their relationship. Kate Clayborn is a very good author, she keeps you wanting to read and it really sucks you in. It's like you know Meg and Reid and you are invested in their relationship!

    Thanks to Kensington Books and SheSpeaks for a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    Love Lettering overall is a very good book. I loved Meg and, even with all her insecurities, I would love to be friends with her. I had a harder time connecting with Reid. The story ebbs and flows through relationship and work issues and several twists keep things interesting.

    Love Lettering is rom-com at it's best. It has a New York City setting, two people who are slowly falling in love and a plot with some depth to it. How can you not love a book like this?Meg is an artist - an artist of letters. Her skill at hand lettering has made her well known in NYC as the Planner of Park Slope. The publicity has gotten her more business than she can handle making everything that requires hand printing from custom journals to wedding programs and she has little time to work on new projects plus she has writer's block. What is interesting with Meg is that she's sees her entire world through letters and feels like letters give her signs about her life. Kate meets Reid when she is working on the wedding invitations to his upcoming wedding. Reid is a math prodigy and he sees life through numbers. A year after the wedding invitation are completed, Reid goes back to see Meg to ask her about the wedding program. He detected a hidden word coded into the program that said MISTAKE and wants to know how she knew. After that confrontation, they began to spend time with each other looking for signs to the future from the hand lettered signs in the city. Will they get their happily ever after or are they too different?I really liked the two main characters - Meg is a skilled artist who still has very little self-confidence but knows how to have a good time. Reid is very serious about life and has lots of trouble relaxing and enjoying life. The two of them together make an interesting couple. This is a book full of laughs and romance as two very different people learn how much alike they really are.

    "Love Lettering" is an original piece of work filled with secret codes and messages (my favorite portions of the book), flawed characters and symbolism that made this downright unputdownable.It's like wow. I am pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this. No joke. I had previously read some reviews and anticipated the worse with this one but I was nearly knocked off my feet with this uniquely written contemporary romance concept. The characters' storyline was refreshing and the pace was painful on the intake but gradually started to improve chapter by chapter. I kid you not, my eyes glued to my screen, taking all the words to heart and then without missing a beat, I found myself in a whimsical journey of self discovery and as the story unfolded, Reid and Meg great character development.In addition, if you're looking for a whirlwind romance, this is not the book for you. This slow burn novel can either make it or break it for most readers, and the romance aspect to Meg and Reid relationship didn't start until a little after the halfway mark but the wait was worthwhile.This is a must have, must read, must everything book for any reader looking to close the year on a high note.

    On the author’s website: Kate Clayborn – books that make you laugh, cry and happy sigh. Yep. There are books that you know as soon as you’ve read a couple of chapters you will have to read straight through. There is no stopping point, no appropriate place to take a break and get on with your life, no desire to leave these characters who have become real. Who in fact have become so real it’s almost an obsession. You almost pick up your jacket to go for a walk or to eat with them. In fact, they feel so real that you have to know what happens to them now, which means you keep reading until the very last word. And as soon as you’ve finished you want to go back to page one and read the entire book again – now.Love Lettering is one of those books. I could go on and on with a detailed account of every action that takes place, everything the characters say and do. But I’m not the exquisite writer Kate Clayborn is and I wouldn’t do the story justice. So instead I’ll just answer your burning question: should I read this book? The answer is a resounding yes. Read it. Now. Straight through. And then do it again.This is an intense, deliberate, precise, magical book. You can feel Meg and Reid being drawn together like moths to a flame. Meg is good-hearted and caring and has a wondrous gift for letters – and for listening when the letters talk to her – but she has a lot of baggage. Meg has developed so many coping mechanisms, but they fail her and she is caught out by Reid. Reid . . . Reid is . . . perfect. He is so intense you practically have to close your eyes from it, so rigid, so solid, so unyielding, so stoic, and at the same time oh, so fragile, with an air of sadness and bafflement surrounding him. Maybe he’s not really perfect, but you want to care for him, draw him into your space, protect him, and peel back some of those layers to discover the warm, tender, loving man you know is in there.Love Lettering is a book full of layers and secrets and surprises. It is amazing, wonderful marvelous, fantastic – pick a word. The writing, the words, the characters, the phrasing, the hurts and joys and expectations . . . all beautiful and magical. It’s about opening up and learning to trust, to believe in yourself and others, to communicate and be direct.Love Lettering is a special, unforgettable book. Thanks to Kensington Books for providing an advance copy for my honest review. The story of Meg and Reid is a wonderful tale that draws you in and, in fact, does make you laugh, cry and happy sigh as promised.

    Wonderful love story with flawed yet endearing characters that I gradually fell for throughout my reading. It started off a little slow for me (like the first 20%), but I recommend staying with it as I did because it's worth it in the end.

    I loved this book. I remember when the Apple Macintosh introduced a variety of fonts and how those fonts could represent how one felt when writing. Well, Meg, has turned her artistry and calligraphy into a full-time job in New York City. She’s known as the Planner of Park Slope designing wedding forms and planners. Giving up the wedding business when her intuition accidently hides the word “mistake” in the program, she is confronted by the ex-groom. She can’t get Reid out of her mind. The two of them seem to clash, and yet this fun New York City romance takes shape as Meg slowly becomes surer of herself and what she wants. I’m seldom a fan of romance, but this was one of the few I really enjoyed reading.

    2019 was the year of reading romance for me. I read a lot of them! I enjoyed a lot of them, but to be honest so many seemed to run together for me. I saw lots of the same, same, over and over. Love Lettering was different. It was unique. I loved the way Meg's love for letters and words and the way type would speak to her vs. Reid's opposite love for numbers and how they worked. They were a unique couple and I really loved their dynamic. The side characters were also interesting and complemented the story. This book would have been 5 stars for me if it would have just started off a little better. I'm glad I stayed with it. The reward was a very satisfying and unique read. I am now interested in other books by this author as this was my first from her. I recommend.
