I need this book in my eyeballs like yesterday!! In Kate Clayborn's newsletter, she described this book as "NYC-set romance featuring an Instagram-famous hand-letterer with a secret habit for hiding codes in her work and the handsome mathematician who finds her out."
The first chapter follows instagram star and calligraphy artist, Meg and her intriguing ability to predict the failure of her customers', Reid and Cecelia's, marriage. Reid (the dashing but broody groom) has since turned up at Meg's New York shop ...more
Netgalley and Kensington books offered only the first chapter of this story and I was intrigued right away. The thought of a secret message in a wedding program and a chance of a romance between the writer and the groom!? Yes please! I enjoyed this chapter very much and cannot wait to read the rest of the story. I asked for this excerpt because I love the idea of the plot and the cover is so beautiful. Bring on the rest!
Thank you NetGalley, Kate Claybor ...more
Its safe to say my interests are peaked. What I read of the book was wonderful. I loved the detail that went into the character introductions and it's so unfair that the entire teaser ended on a cliffhanger. Cannot wait for the release, hoping for an advanced copy.
This teaser was provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review, all opinions are my own.
I guess I should have read the description on NetGalley more closely... because all I want now is to read the entire book!! UGH.
I've only just recently read my first book by Kate Clayborn, but enjoyed it so much I couldn't wait to read this excerpt from her forthcoming book, especially as it sounded really unusual.
Meg makes her living by designing hand lettered custom journals etc. and after a piece in The Times has become quite famous and known as The Planner of Park Slope. But supposedly she can also read signs in relationships that other people miss and last year wove a secret sign into some wedding invi ...more

He is there to complain on behalf of his new wife about a "Mistake" Meg made on the Wedding Invitations. Instead of writing the month "May" in capital letters. Meg writes "Maybe" on the wedding invitations. Meg is nervous, not sure how to answer for the intended/unintended mistake. It is writ ...more
I got to read only the first chapter which has really piqued my interest.
I find the style of writing unusual and different.
Meg has a great talent for hand lettering and has become quite successful and sought after, with the rich and demanding clientele. She reaches her success by doing hand made wedding invitation,
One particular couple particularly interested her and she had done someth ...more
Meg is a hand-lettering master who has been sought out so much for doing wedding sets that she'd have been booked for the next forever if she hadn't left the wedding paper business after designing Reid and Avery's invites. When she first met Reid, all she could see was sadness...she thinks. So she snuck something into the lettering on their invites. One year later, where this novel starts, Reid comes in to the shop wedding-ring-less and pulls out a crumpled invite and ...more
Disclaimer: This is a review of the 14-page excerpt, not the full book.
I loved the excerpt! It was the first chapter and provided a great look into Meg’s creative mind and personality as well as her job, which is one that I’m seriously loving. It was amusing comparing Meg’s interactions with her clients to what she internally thought and observed about them. I can only imagine the kind of expensive materials that goes into the custom jou ...more
From what I read:
- I love the main character
- I love the premise of working for these rich nutbars
- It grabbed me from the get-go ... that secret word...
- did you know that Meghan Markle used to do calligraphy for people to make extra money -- she did the invitations for Robin Thicke and Paula Patton! (Hmmmmm ... same initials as the main character in the book!)
-I now have New Year's Eve plans as it comes out December 31st
- Dec ...more
clients. Usually nothing happens when she adds a little extra into her work ... except that this time, one of her clients was able to detect the message in his wedding announcement and shows up demanding an explanation.
I'm looking forward so much to reading this sto ...more
Awaiting the remainder of the book before I can make an informed decision.
I received this excerpt as a complimentary copy for an unbiased review. The opinion opinion expressed is my iwn.
I didn’t give a 5 star review because I only read the first chapter, but I am definitely intrigued. I want to know how and why Reid’s relationship went off the rails? Will Meg find her missing inspiration? So many questions! I definitely am adding Love Lettering to my TBR!

Thank you NetGalley for teasing me with this fantastic excerpt.
This is a romantic story of a young artist who becomes insta-famous for her beautiful hand-letters. However, she has a secret she likes to hide codes in her work. One day a handsome man appeared into her workshop searching for answers. Does this man remembers what she has done to him in the past? How does he resolve the code? What does he wants?
The sad part is that I’m not describing the plot... I genuinely do not know!! And I’m dying to!! I was only given the first chapter of ...more
