I'm a Medeiros fan, and this is a leap away from her usual historical romances. It's a novel told in epistolary fashion, consisting almost entirely of tweets. And for those of you living under a rock and don't know what a tweet is (*insert grin*), tweets are the 140 characters less you'll find from users of Twitter. For those of us who adore Twitter and the way it allows us to interact with others quickly, you'll love the fast-paced dialogue of this book, reminiscent of "The Gilmore Girls." Full of pop culture references and iconic witticisms, I found myself laughing at author Abigail Donovan as she connected with Mark Baynard.
Abby hasn't been able to move on from chapter five of her novel after experiencing smashing success with her debut novel. The pressure is getting to her, and as part of her daily ritual of avoiding her writing, she joins Twitter. The first person to tweet at her is Mark, and Mark is far more interesting--and inspiring--than anything else Abby has had contact with recently.
Mark and Abby start a funny flirtation, going on "dates" via Twitter and chatting late into the night with direct messages. But Mark has a secret he's keeping from Abby, and Abby has some of her own demons to contend with. Will they overcome their obstacles to finally meet?
You'll have to read to find out, but this novel is certainly not a chore. If you're looking for a quick, funny, upbeat, tender story of two people learning to live and love again, this is your novel.
