"Hi, I'm the guy who reads your e-mail, and also, I love you . . . "
Beth Fremont and Jennifer Scribner-Snyder know that somebody is monitoring their work e-mail. (Everybody in the newsroom knows. It's company policy.) But they can't quite bring themselves to take it seriously. They go on sending each other endless and endlessly hilarious e-mails, discussing every aspect of their personal lives.
Meanwhile, Lincoln O'Neill can't believe this is his job now- reading other people's e-mail. When he applied to be "internet security officer," he pictured himself building firewalls and crushing hackers- not writing up a report every time a sports reporter forwards a dirty joke.
When Lincoln comes across Beth's and Jennifer's messages, he knows he should turn them in. But he can't help being entertained-and captivated-by their stories.
By the time Lincoln realizes he's falling for Beth, it's way too late to introduce himself.
What would he say . . .
***Many thanks to Net Galley and Penguin Group/Plume for a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review***
This insomniac's review:
Are all my reading buddies familiar with Rainbow Rowell? If you like a good, lighthearted novel with witty banter between quirky characters, you should be!
I was delighted to get this novel, as I loved the author's novel Eleanor & Park.
|This one wasn't nearly as well done as Eleanor & Park, but a good light read when you need to rest your brain after a few hard-hitters. Extraordinarily predictable and thin plot, but you simply forget about all of that when you get lost in Beth and Jennifer's friendship and the budding romance of Lincoln and Beth.|
Worth staying up all night?
This is a quite few hours romp in the witty pages. No need to stay up all night, friends! Hooray!
