Well, she can really write.Thank you to Kate Clayborn, Kensington and NetGalley for giving me this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    I couldn’t believe that I’m giving three romantic story with full of signs, shining with its bright lights of big city but unfortunately full of conspiracy and action parts, unexpected twisty turn of the story shattered my soft, swoony plot stars!When I read the excerpt of this book I cursed a few times, because it ended with a sweet cliffhanger and I thought I had to read this book ASAP.I wanted to devour it so passionately!!! I couldn’t g...

    This is a hard review to write because I want to get it right. Why I loved this. How extraordinary the writing is, the moments we were given, shown, even the ones that were hidden until they were ready to be told. To me, this a love story for all the people who were told they were mistakes or were mistaken, and even felt it in themselves. Who never got a do-over, never got a second chance, or the opportunity to explain themselves. It's a quiet st...

    As it turns out, my favorite book this year is an arc for 2020. I've enjoyed all of Kate Clayborn's books and she just keeps getting better and better with each one. Love Lettering is my favorite for many reasons, and not least because it is elegantly and intricately written, with each piece of the story falling perfectly into place to illuminate key themes of the life of an artist, of how we navigate our way in the world through visual images, a...

    I stayed up late finishing this book. That is a rare occurrence these days. So while I don’t think this was perfect, it was consuming. It was intricate and interesting and unique. This is the story of Meg, a hand letterer who is having a bit of a mid-life crisis. She has a big career opportunity and is having a creative block and is lonely, with her best friend drifting away. This has a romance but Meg was central to the story as it is told fro...
  • *The Angry Reader*
    Have you ever reached 15, 20% in a “romance” book and thought “there’s nothing here for me. I don’t understand these characters. I don’t see myself anywhere?” That happens to me - over and over again. Sometimes a book is just a book - and sometimes it’s more. It sends a message about relationships and how we feel about ourselves and What an author thinks about women and love. In 2018 I read 253 books. In 2017 I read 299. 2018 had ...

    When I started reading this book, all I could think of was the phrase killing me softly This book is full of this quiet angst, the kind you feel everyday in relationships. The kind you relate to, wondering what you did, where you went wrong, if mistakes are really ever forgiven and what they mean. And holy hell, this will be my fourth review of Kate Clayborn where I'm at a loss for what to even say. It will be a time I say once again why I love...
  • Patty (IheartYA)
    Syrupy sweet, Love Lettering is a romance with a very, very slow beating heart. The premise had potential and I really wanted to like it more than I did. The characters are endearing and charming, but the story is bogged down by poor pacing and semi- torturous, long winded inner monologue. I was surprised and blindsided by the sex scene as it seemed to not flow with the rest of the story. Cute and quirky storyline, la la la, then BOOM--hot and he...
  • Ira
    What a lovely lovely romance.I read it in one sitting in two decades! Hah! My first book finished this year and my first by this author too.Her books already in my TBR list for sometimes but I’m very picky with Contemporary Romance lately. However, Love Lettering sounds unusual and very intriguing, and I’m glad to have this one as my 2020’s first read.Btw, Happy New Year 2020 my goodreads friends.Happy Reading to you all too, I hope we will...

    Meg, a whimsical artistic letterer, and Reid, a serious analytical no-nonsense man, meet for a second time when he confronts her about how she knew his relationship would fail. They both have an underlying connection of looking for signs and decoding messages. I’m not going to lie, I had a hard time getting into this book. I’d say until I hit the 25% mark I was struggling, lots of letter references. I was trying to wrap my brain around all th...

Like writing without letters. Like counting without numbers. It feels like love.This book saved me from the dreaded end of the year book funk!

  • Nursebookie
    Kate Clayborn’s book, Love Lettering was truly a work of art for me. I was engrossed with the story from the very first page. I did not stop and was fully engrossed with the story and the characters. Clayborn wrote a beautiful love story that developed organically with amazing dialogue with all the swoon and feels you will crave for. Our amazing story begins with Meg Mackworth, who is a popular and talented hand lettering artist who was working...

    What can I say about Love Lettering? The writing is so gloriously evocative of the craft of the heroine that I dreamt in script? That I almost wore out the highlight button on my Kindle? That Reid and Meg have my heart? I fell in love with Kate Clayborn's writing with the Chance of a Lifetime series and this book just cements her place as an important voice in the Romance genre.Thank you to the publisher for the ARC. I will write a better review ...

    5 “Swoonsh” Stars!This is my very first Kate Clayborn read and if the rest of her library is half as good as Love Lettering, I'm destined to become a devoted reader.Love Letting was told in a single-POV by the heroine Meg. Fortunately, with Meg's apt and expressive voice, I never felt that I missed Reid's POV. I quickly fell for him and his regal poise, brusque honesty, and insecure tics, all shared through Meg’s keen observation. As for he...
  • Darla
    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 giving the narrative much mor...

    I truly appreciated the style and quality of the writing and the easy-breezy plot exposition in this new romance by Kate Clayborn. So my inability to give the book more than a 3-star rating has more to do with "It's not the book; it's me."Our heroine Meg is a popular hand-letterer/calligrapher who does intricate hand-written invitations, cards, journals, etc., for her clients. Meg can't resist putting secret messages into her designs, but there's...

    I cannot say I am someone who won't judge the book by its cover. But if a book is selected to read, then I usually give it a chance until my kindle shows twenty percentage in reading progress. Sadly this story didn't live up to its promise at that time and I almost gave up. I said 'almost' because I changed my mind after getting recommendations from some of my fellow reviewers. Today after closing my kindle I felt glad I heed their advice. I woul...

    Probably going to be pelted with rotten fruit and veg by romancelandia for not unequivocally loving this but whateverrrrrr.So what happened here? It was like I read a book of two parts. The first part (which was almost 50%) I thought was excellent and easily going the way of 5 stars. I loved Meg; loved getting to know her. I loved the way her job was written about, and the way you can be doing well, know you’re good at what you do, but still no...

    This book y’all… it had me hook, line and sinker. I adored (pretty much) all of it and found myself wistfully drifting away in to the land of Meg and Reid. Seriously, if you’re in the mood for a heart-warming and hilarious love story then this is the one for you! This book was such a cute read! Within the first chapter I found myself fully immersed in Meg and Reid’s unusual relationship and begging for more of their semi-awkward, off-the-...

    4.5 starsLove Lettering was such a wonderful surprise. I was already intrigued after reading the chapter preview and now, after finishing the book, I can safely say that I am in love with Kate Clayborn's writing style and sense of humor. The book was heartfelt and emotional at times, but also uplifting and hilarious. There were even a few plot twists that I didn't see coming.Meg was such a relatable heroine. I loved her inner monologue and many o...

    4.5 beautiful starsI received an arc copy of this from Kensington Books via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.Summary Meg is a New York famous calligraphist. She also has a knack for reading people and seeing signs most people miss. And sometimes, she secretly hides these codes into her art - like she did with Reid Sutherland's wedding invitations. But Reid is good with codes and numbers. A year after his non-wedding, he shows up at Meg'...
