Book Review: Love Lettering – Kate Clayborn

Rating: 3/5 🌟🌟🌟

Genre: Contemporary Romance


I love Calligraphy so I was very interested in this book. Meg is skilled at hand-lettering and she does fantastic planners. She also used to do wedding programs and she used her skill to hide a code into the program for Reid and Avery, saying their marriage was doomed. A year later, Reid tracks her down and confronts her about it, sending them both colliding into paths neither ever thought to give a try.

What I liked:
1 – The main character’s passion for lettering, for calligraphy. It’s one of my favorite hobbies and I had a great time working on my planner for 2020 so I enjoyed how the author gave a creative slant to the story.

2 – The romance between Meg and Reid. It was sweet and intense at the same time.
3 – Darling Reid. Okay, so maybe I have hearts in my eyes over him. I’m totally crushing on this guy.

What I didn’t like:
Though I loved the romance and I adored Reid, the writing dragged at times and it was hard to keep my attention in the story. But I loved the overall plot-line. I feel like this story could have been more dynamic and only the parts with Reid had a lot of impact with me.⁣

Overall, the plot-line was a good one but it had the potential to have a more significant effect if the parts where the story dragged a bit could have been avoided. Still, I found a lot to enjoy about this book and found it a worthwhile read.

Synopsis: In this warm and witty romance from acclaimed author Kate Clayborn, one little word puts one woman’s business—and her heart—in jeopardy . . . Meg Mackworth’s hand-lettering skill has made her famous as the Planner of Park Slope, designing beautiful custom journals for New York City’s elite. She has another skill too: reading signs that other people miss. Like the time she sat across from Reid Sutherland and his gorgeous fiancée, and knew their upcoming marriage was doomed to fail. Weaving a secret word into their wedding program was a little unprofessional, but she was sure no one else would spot it. She hadn’t counted on sharp-eyed, pattern-obsessed Reid . . . A year later, Reid has tracked Meg down to find out—before he leaves New York for good—how she knew that his meticulously planned future was about to implode. But with a looming deadline, a fractured friendship, and a bad case of creative block, Meg doesn’t have time for Reid’s questions—unless he can help her find her missing inspiration. As they gradually open up to each other about their lives, work, and regrets, both try to ignore the fact that their unlikely connection is growing deeper. But the signs are there—irresistible, indisputable, urging Meg to heed the messages Reid is sending her, before it’s too late . . .


I'm a die-hard bibliophile and I'm also an introvert. My blog's about books, books and more books. (yep, that was easy) I might, from time to time, write about life and its vagaries. I like taking pictures of books and doing origami.
