Meg Mackworth's hand-lettering skill has made her famous as the Planner of Park Slope, designing custom journals for her New York City clientele. She has another skill too: reading signs that other people miss. Knowing the upcoming marriage of Reid Sutherland and his polished fiancée was doomed to fail is one thing, but weaving a secret word of warning into their wedding program is another. Meg may have thought no one would spot it, but she hadn't counted on sharp-eyed, pattern-obsessed Reid. A year later, Reid has tracked Meg down to find out how she knew that his meticulously planned future was about to implode. But with a looming deadline 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, both try to ignore a deepening connection between them. But the signs are there--irresistible, indisputable, urging Meg to heed the messages Reid is sending her, before it's too late.

Sweet, interesting & whimsical storyline. I liked the characters, pacing of the plot was uneven at times.

Be warned that this book has very explicit sex scenes. I thought the writing was good, but I almost gave up on hoping for much of a plot til late in the book. The romance is the bulk of the story.

Three + stars really, but not quite 4. I thoroughly enjoyed it though the ending strained credulity-not the love story, but the rest. Loved the intricacies and subtleties of where art meets autism, the idea that drives the novel and makes our quirky characters so right for each other. All those parts are great.
Are people who grew up with 1990s-2000s television just more accepting of plot holes that happen in movies and television but used to be more uncommon in print? That's my theory. As a movie, it worked well. As a novel, not as satisfying.

I loved this book. I remember when the Apple Macintosh introduced a variety of fonts and how those fonts could represent how one felt when writing. Well, Meg, has turned her artistry and calligraphy into a full-time job in New York City. She’s known as the Planner of Park Slope designing wedding forms and planners. Giving up the wedding business when her intuition accidently hides the word “mistake” in the program, she is confronted by the ex-groom. She can’t get Reid out of her mind. The two of them seem to clash, and yet this fun New York City romance takes shape as Meg slowly becomes surer of herself and what she wants. I’m seldom a fan of romance, but this was one of the few I really enjoyed reading.

A relevant romance that finished strong. It starts with a slow burn and as the 50% mark approached, I was considering a three-star rating. The relationship-building was sweet. For my old-fashioned sensibilities they put the cart before the horse and caused additional complications. Then comes a major event for which I had missed all the signs -- just like Meg. I thought the last third of the book was a great addition to the book giving the narrative much more substance than your average romance. Meg's struggles to define herself through her work and what she learns about healthy relationships is also so valuable. This new release is relevant in a world of bullet journaling and creativity instagram videos. Meg and Reid's story would most definitely appeal to some book groups as well.
