Love Lettering Romance Book Review


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

Love to read and are you in the market to enjoy a good new romantic title?  With creative flair, an intriguing plot line and main characters that are so well-developed they almost jump off the page into your living room, you're going to want to take a look at the new book Love Lettering by Kate Clayborn, Kensington Books (2020).

This is a contemporary love story like none other I've read. Set primarily in Brooklyn, with some scenes in Manhattan and elsewhere in the Northeast, this tale revolves around a talented artist named Meg who specializes in an extraordinary kind of hand lettering. Better known as the Planner of Park Slope, she has become somewhat of a celebrity for her artistic lettering talents, custom designing journals, walls, wedding stationery, and more for a quickly-growing list of impressive clients.

The story unfolds when Meg hides a secret word of warning within a wedding program she has created for one of her clients. The couple's wedding is canceled before it can take place. Then, a year later, the former fiancĂ©, a handsome mathematically-inclined guy named Reid, comes to the shop where the Planner of Park Slope works. His curiosity has gotten the better of him, and he seeks her out to find out how she knew his marriage was doomed.

What happens when a left-brained creative and a right-brained mathematician -- who seemingly are incompatible opposites with little in common -- start getting to know each other? They embark on a new relationship, by playing a peculiar game of deciphering signs on neighborhood buildings as they walk through city streets of New York. 

Creatively executed hand lettering, such as blackboard chalk styles, are all the rage right now in everything from menus and websites to wall murals, and even store signage, so this novel could not be more timely. You'll learn what makes hand lettering so special as well as you will be kept guessing and trying to sort things out from the start of the story till the very last page of this cleverly crafted piece of fiction.
