Staff Reviews


The title is pretty spot on as this is truly a love letter to the human experience: surrounding yourself with supportive friends, finding your own passions, exploring love and romantic connections. Charming is the word that immediately comes to mind and the book's cheekiness when playing with letters and language are a large part of the fun.

— Amanda

Her descriptions of NYC and her beautiful hand lettering become a love story In an of itself. Reid is an interesting match bc he is atypical love interest. He’s blunt and awkward and really into math. The two don’t seem to match and the letters and numbers complement each other. A satisfying read.

"I can't wait for the whole world to fall in love with Love Lettering!" 
—Jasmine Guillory

In this warm and witty romance from acclaimed author Kate Clayborn, one little word puts a 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 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 . . .

Praise For…


“I flew through this creative and original book. I was completely absorbed by the world Kate Clayborn creates — the characters felt so real and their joys and sorrows and struggles and triumphs felt so relatable that I forgot I was reading fiction. I can’t wait for the whole world to fall in love with Love Lettering!”
—Jasmine Guillory, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Proposal
 
“On the surface, Love Lettering is the story of a letterer falling in love, but in actuality, it’s a novel of lush complexity, one bursting with humor, a tender melancholy, and meditations on love, friendship, and life any reader can find solace and inspiration in. It’s lyrical and engrossing, a novel that possesses all the colors, idiosyncrasies, and range of the alphabet. Like the pages Meg designs, Love Lettering is a novel bursting with hidden messages essential to discover – so long as we open our hearts to analyze the codes.”
A+, Entertainment Weekly
 
“This is the first Kate Clayborn I’ve read. It won’t be the last—this book is utterly captivating, with a voice that leaps forward and then back on itself, like a series of curling loops inked a blank page. Dizzying, in the way of good champagne.”
—Olivia Waite, Seattle Review of Books
 
“Fresh, funny, clever, and deeply satisfying.”
Kirkus Reviews STARRED REVIEW

“Written in a wry but vulnerable first-person voice, Love Lettering moves at a stroll, but readers will be happy to enjoy the scenery of the city and the interactions between Meg and her friends. With smart characters and authentic di­lemmas, this is a very special romance to both smile and sigh over.”
BookPage STARRED REVIEW

“Clayborn (Beginner’s Luck) delivers an emotionally resonant love story filled with charming details of city life and the artisanal trendiness of handlettering and calligraphy that adorns the urban setting. This will be popular among the enthusiastic and growing audience for romantic comedies.”
