An endearing story about love, finding happiness and some Scrabble board poetry that perfectly ties in with the story. You will find yourself rooting for these wonderful and genuine characters. I look forward to reading more from Brandi Megan Granett.

One of the things I love almost as much as reading is Scrabble, so seeing a book cover showing Love and Scrabble pulled me right in. I had to get this book. It took me on a wonderful journey as Miranda, a teacher who taught poetry, also developed scrabble poems that became an overnight social media craze. Miranda who never got over her best friend/boyfriends betrayal of leaving her abruptly one night and disappearing from her life for 6 years. Miranda falls fast into another romance with one of ...more

Scott had been a family friend and was always there to help her when she needed before he disappeared. As the novel starts, Scott shows up at Miranda's parents with a young daughter that no one knew about. Seeing him again and his refusal to answer her questions about his past is the catalyst that causes Miranda to make some poor decisions in her life. At ...more

A poetry professor has led a rather dull life thus far, pining away for her childhood sweetheart, who mysteriously disappeared from her life six years earlier. When he turns up again after she’s had a torrid affair with an Irish student, his reasons for disappearing are complicated, but not unforgiveable.

This book has romantic elements, but they are complex, which makes it interesting. The writing is good and it definitely got me wanting to play more Scrabble! I liked the idea of a poetry profes

"Triple Love Score" is a sweet romance about Miranda, who is a poetry professor by trade and a social media star in her personal life. Her brand of social media is right down my alley: Miranda starts creating poetry on her beloved Scrabble board, a game which played witness to Miranda's heartbreak. Six years ago, Scott disappeared from her life and Miranda was reeling. Now that Scott is back, Miranda has to decide whether or not she can deal with where Scott has been and put her heart on the lin ...more

Tension on every page centers on a variety of conflicts that will appeal to today's woman—achievement vs. authenticity, artistic integrity vs notoriety, independent validation vs fitting into a ready-made family—and all of that driven by action on a Scrabble board whose heartwarming, real-life memories become the vehicle for minimalist poetry that is catching fire online. There are many great characters here, but my favorite is Scott's daughter, Lynn. She embodies all of the story's themes in on ...more

This novel delivered way more than I was expecting... What I thought would be just another entertaining, fluffy read had me clawing at characters' necks in frustration, begging the book to bring the characters I loved together, and going on a whirlwind adventure into popularity that I have never gone on before.

Miranda felt authentic, being torn between her craft and love. I couldn't decide who I liked more for the longest time... Ro

Want a sweet love story but you crave a little love-triangle heat? Triple Love Score has both. It's a fun light-hearted read with depth. I missed the characters when I wasn't reading and during their struggles I couldn't help but cheer them on. I especially loved the Scrabble-board-poetry, the cozy holiday scenes, and the rich descriptions of the college campus where Miranda (main character) is a professor. ...more

Unique love story

This book really surprised me, in a wonderful way! I honestly didn't have any expectations for this book, but was ready for something light, some romance, some was all of those things and yet so much more! Triple Love Score is an endearing, heartfelt story about a young woman, Miranda, who has been pining for the love of a man she hasn't heard from for six years. She has loved Scott since she was a kid, and when he shows up at her parents' house for Thanksgiving w
Laurie • The Baking Bookworm
This is a contemporary tale with a sweet romance and a board game thrown in for good measure. But it's more than just a 'girl + boy = true love' kind of read. Granett has included some rather bold choices by adding some tough current issues into her romantic mix. We still have a love triangle and the 'Will they? Won't they?' aspect (which is to be expected). But there's also illness, death, the often complicated and varied step-parent/step-child relationships as well as finding the personal stre ...more

I love words and reading and writing. And I adore Scrabble. It's my favorite game. No one in my family will play with me anymore. After nearly 20 years of marriage, my husband can still count on one hand, the number of times he's beaten me. But it will always be my favorite game to play. So when I saw a book that used Scrabble as a plot point, I had to read it.

The premise is fantastic: a poetry professor begins using a Scrabble board to write 4-5 word poems or "word sculptures" that echo her tho

Miranda Shane has a secret - an online identity building a massive following creating poems using a Scrabble board. The idea came to her one evening, after moving into her newest apartment, when an aging and unused Scrabble box kicked the bucket spilling tiles that spelled "poem" onto her floor. And for a poetry teacher, currently blocked in her writing, no sign could be clearer.

But as that part of her life begins to come into focus, her love life takes a complicated turn. The one that got away

I read the first half of this before I had Lucy, and the second half after I had Lucy... which was not a smart move because I had to go back and re-read the first half because I couldn't remember anything. Let's start with what I totally loved: very rich descriptions of the setting, great character development, and the Scrabble board poetry. (Here's a fun fact: despite being well read and loving everything about literature, I absolutely suck at Scrabble, and people are always surprised to learn ...more

In the new rom-com, TRIPLE LOVE SCORE (Wyatt-MacKenzie), by Brandi Megan Granett, Miranda Shane leads a quiet existence. The most outrageous thing she’s done in her life is not become a lawyer like most of her family. She’s a poetry professor at a small New England college.

Her life is thrown into a bit of craziness, when this low-key professor starts using a Scrabble board instead of paper to write poetry. She creates a website, “Blocked Poet,” which becomes an Internet success with thousands of

Review by Marlene Engel
It's been six years since Scott made a move for Miranda and then left without so much as a good-bye. Her quiet world is about to go into a tail-spin when he resurfaces with his daughter; a child that no one had any clue about. Left with even more questions than before, this starts a series of less than stellar choices on her part.

As a poetry professor at a New England college, Miranda is used to letting her emotions flow on paper. But when she begins putting together poem

A cute story that makes for some fun reading, Triple Love Score by Brandi Megan Granett meshes the traditional aspect of a novel with modern craze with social media. The romance starts off with the what could have been, and then spirals to the risks that one takes for true love. A charming story of the life of an accidental social media sensation, Blocked Poet who in reality is just sharing her life through her short poems using scrabble tiles. For readers, you'll be immerse in the experience as ...more

Miranda has always been in love with Scott - since she was a young kid. He always seemed to treat her like a little sister though, how would she ever break that mold in his mind? Then one day he came to visit her at college and they kissed...then he disappeared...for over 6 years!

Then Scott comes home for a holiday and he brings ...someone special. Wow, things have changed in 6 years. At this point, Miranda had started seeing a student, yes a student. He came on to her and she fell for Ronan's I

I highly recommend this book as a Christmas vacation flight of fancy. Set largely around the holiday season, the book is both a dream to enjoy and a drama on which to spend a little Christmas sentimentality. Join Miranda, the Blocked Poet, as she crafts poems from linked words on a Scrabble board. The game becomes a conceit for the novel; as they rediscover lost loves and kindle new ones, the characters interlock in plot that leads us around the globe and home again.

While I can say I enjoyed this book, it's not a drop everything and read now kinda book. The characters are fun, but I felt like a lot of things happened behind the scenes and I was putting pieces together on my own. Almost as if I was skipping pages. The pictures are fun and it is an easy read. Playful book and a great beach read with summer approaching. ...more

This is a page-turner for the reader who wants a dose of modern thinking on relationships. It is thoughtfully written with this in mind. There is an undercurrent of the genuine personal integrity of the main character, and perhaps the author, in this book that has been missing in the romance genre. It is not whiny; it is not tortured with pain in stereotypical ways as are often described in romance. That said, it does not lack at all for emotional gravity or complexity of the main character. It’ ...more
